CLEVELAND, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Beastie Boys, Guns N' Roses and Red Hot Chili Peppers will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, organizers said Wednesday.

Also set for induction at the 27th annual induction ceremony April 14 are Donovan, Laura Nyro and The Small Faces/The Faces.

The ceremony is to air on HBO in early May.

"We are pleased to announce this year's Hall of Fame inductees, who represent the broad spectrum of artists that define rock 'n' roll," Joel Peresman, president and chief executive officer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement. "We are also thrilled this year to again be partnered with HBO, who presented the Hall of Fame's 25th anniversary concerts."
