Benatar has been eligible to be inducted since 2004, but was only nominated for the first time this year.
She was the first woman played on MTV – the second video shown on the channel – and was inducted into the Long Island Hall of Fame in 2008.
The “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and “Love is a Battlefield” singer’s career spans four rock-filled decades. She’s won Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, had two multi-platinum albums, five platinum albums, three gold albums and 15 Billboard Top 40 singles.
Benatar still records albums and continues to perform rocking shows. Benatar remained classy in a response on her Facebook page Wednesday:
“Congratulations to the 2020 RRHOF inductees. Thanks to all of you for taking time out of your busy lives to vote 882,207 times! We are humbled and grateful for 41 years of love and support!You continue to amaze us, you are simply the best??P&S”
