The fine folks at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame down there in Cleveland, OH just released their list of 2010 inductees - and ABBA is on the list.

ABBA, who unforunately broke up in 1983, is still every gay boys 'Dancing Queen' and recording artists from Madonna to Lady Gaga find inspiration in their songs.  Now they're getting the recognition that they deserve by being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.

Included in the list of performers are: Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, The Hollies and The Stooges.  Also included in this years inductees are nonperformers who will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award, those include: Otis Blackwell, Mort Shuman, Jesse Stone, Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil and David Geffen.

Geffen as you may know is an out gay record executive - Asylum Records, Geffen Records and was most recently was cofounder of DreamWorks SKG along with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg, he left SKG in 2008.

It's wonderful to have a gay man inducted this year as well as a band that has meant so much to so many gay men and women!  

Who would you like to see inducted next year?
