Public Enemy has been awarded a spot into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and the group couldn’t be more thrilled about it.

“Public Enemy’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is totally a team effort,” Chuck D told “A group is what we’ve been these past 25 years, 84 countries, 85 tours. We are the sum of great individuals who have followed hip-hop’s elemental blueprint of collective necessary to be considered comparable to stand up to the many great musics, genres artists before and alongside.”

Chuck D added, “We are seriously thankful and share this achievement with our hip-hop and rap music idiom.”

The late Donna Summer will also be inducted alongside Public Enemy, joined by others.

The group was nominated with their 1987′s Yo! Bum Rush The Show and 1988 album, It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back.

The event takes place April 18 in Los Angeles.
