Three billboards cast a spotlight on the most famous actors in American music.
On Friday, Billboard announced that a trio of artists will headline the Billboard Top 40, and the Billboard Cover Albums chart.
The three artists, each in their 30s, have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Their respective reputations have changed over the years.
Billboard first announced their induction last summer, and their induction ceremony is scheduled for this Sunday in Nashville.
The Rock and Roller Hall of Famer Michael Bolton, who plays bass on the trio, is the only other original member of the group.
Billboards top 40 is based on a methodology similar to Billboard’s popular Billboard 200 chart, which also includes acts that have made records.
Billboard counts songs on its top 40 and the cover albums of a band’s members, which are not included in the official count.
Billboarding’s top 40 includes all artists on Billboard’s top 100 albums, as well as all acts with at least 50 hits on the Billboard Hot 100.

Billboard’s website has over 200 million unique visitors per day.
