Foo Fighters will enter the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the blessing of a Beatle.

The legendary Paul McCartney will usher Dave Grohl and company into the museum during its upcoming 2021 Induction Ceremony, held in Cleveland on October 30.

McCartney and The Beatles, of course, have been big influences on Grohl and the Foos. Sir Paul is even featured on the Foos’ 2017 album, Concrete and Gold.

When Grohl entered the Rock Hall in 2014 alongside Nirvana, R.E.M.‘s Michael Stipe did the inducting honors.

Other announced presenters include Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore and Angela Bassett, who will induct Carole King, The Go-Go’s and Tina Turner, respectively. Additionally, Lionel Richie will induct music executive Clarence Avant as a recipient of the Ahmet Ertegun Award.

Presenters for Todd Rundgren and JAY-Z — the other inductees in the main Performers category — have not yet been announced. 

Other inductees this year include Kraftwerk, Charley Patton and Gil Scott-Heron for Early Influence, and LL Cool J, Billy Preston and Randy Rhoads for Musical Excellence.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will air November 20 on HBO and stream on HBO Max.
