Six additional Nine Inch Nails members will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame alongside frontman Trent Reznor.

A rep for the Rock Hall confirms to ABC Audio that Atticus Ross, Robin Finck, Chris Vrenna, Danny Lohner, Ilan Rubin and Alessandro Cortini will also be enshrined into the institution.

Ross was announced as an “official” member of Nine Inch Nails in 2016, and is the only other person besides Reznor who’s held that title in the project’s over 30-year history. Finck, Rubin and Cotini are members of the current NIN touring lineup.

Vrenna played on the first two NIN albums — 1989’s Pretty Hate Machine and 1994’s The Downward Spiral — and was part of the live lineup on-and-off until 1997. Lohner contributed to The Downward Spiral and 1999’s The Fragile, and was a touring member until 2003.

Notably not included are future Filter frontman Richard Patrick, who played on Pretty Hate Machine and the tour behind it, and longtime keyboardist Charlie Clouser.

Nine Inch Nails will be inducted into the Rock Hall during a TV special premiering November 7 on HBO and stream on HBO Max. The show takes the place of the usual in-person ceremony, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The other inductees include The Doobie Brothers, T. Rex, Depeche Mode, Whitney Houston, and The Notorious B.I.G.
