After forty-five years, countless tunes on the radio and multiple gold and platinum records, Canadian rockers Rush have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.The induction ceremony was held Thursday night at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live.

Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters formerly welcomed Rush into the class of 2013 at the 28th annual ceremonies.

Dave Grohl had this to say during his induction speech: "Their legacy is that of a band that stayed true to themselves no matter how uncool they seemed to anyone. Rush have always been cool! Consider this mystery solved and it’s our honor to finally induct Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”

Geddy Lee says the band is happy and honored to join fellow inductees Albert King, Heart, Public Enemy, Lou Adler, Quincy Jones, Donna Summer and Randy Newman.

Rush will bring the Clockwork Angels Tour to Austin,Texas on April 23, at the Frank Erwin Center.
