Metallica were joined onstage by former bassist Jason Newsted when they were officially inducted into the 24th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Cleveland on Saturday (April 4).

The veteran heavy metal band were inducted by Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, who said that Metallica were a ‘perfect match’ for the Hall of Fame.

Flea said “If you’re gonna have a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame … you’ve got to have Metallica in it.”

Frontman James Hetfield said that being honoured in the Hall of Fame was a “dream come true.”

“Dream big and dare to fail … ’cause this is living proof that it is possible to make a dream come true,” Hetfield said.

Other artists inducted this year were Run-DMC, Jeff Beck, Bobby Womack and Little Anthony and the Imperials.
