The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2015 includes a bluesman, a Beatle and a chick who loves rock 'n' roll. Lou Reed, Green Day, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Double Trouble, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts and Bill Withers and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band will be inducted in April. Ringo Starr will receive the special honor of the Award for Musical Excellence as well, Rolling Stone reports.

The ceremony will be held April 18 in Cleveland, and HBO will air the festivities some time in May. Tickets will be available to the general public Thursday, Dec. 18.

"I had to go for a walk when I heard the news," Billie Joe Armstrong said about Green Day receiving the honor on its first year of eligibility. "We're in incredible company and I'm still trying to make sense of this. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has always held something special for me because my heroes were in there. This is a great time for us to sort of reflect and look back with gratitude."

Jett said her inclusion is "surreal and humbling." In case you forgot, the "Godmother of Punk" attended the ceremony this past year, fronting Nirvana on their classic "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

The Beatles were inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1988, and each member except Starr has been welcomed back as a solo act. Now it is the drummer's turn.

"This means recognition to me," he said. "And it means, finally, the four of us are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even though we were the biggest pop group in the land. You know that won't look funny in black and white."

Reed and Vaughn will be honored posthumously. The Velvet Underground singer died last year and Vaughn died in 1990.

Nirvana was joined by Cat Stevens, Hall and Oates, Kiss, Linda Ronstadt and Peter Gabriel.
