25 Sets of Siblings within the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


Janet Jackson can be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 29, 18 years after her brother Michael was honored and 22 years after her 5 oldest brothers -- Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael, aka The Jackson 5 -- have been inducted.

Janet and her brothers are simply the second units of siblings to be individually induced into the Hall. Industry titans Nesuhi and Ahmet Ertegun have been additionally inducted individually.

Also of word: Of the 9 kids born to Joe and Katherine Jackson, six are actually within the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This ties the Isley Brothers' document for many siblings to be inducted.

Another pair of siblings, Colin and Jonny Greenwood, will even be saluted this 12 months as Radiohead is inducted.
