ABBA gets Hall of fame nod
ABBA, the famous Swedish pop band will be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The band which consists of Anni-Frid Lyngstad (Frida), Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson (the 'B-boys') and Agnetha Faltskog (Anna) will join the prestigious roll of honour at a ceremony in New York, much to the surprise of the 'Mama Mia' hitmakers, Contactmusic reported.

Andersson said that he never expected ABBA to make it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

"I didn't think this would happen, because we were a pop band, not a rock band. Being a foreigner from the North Pole, this feels really good," Andersson said.

The four piece Swedish band are set to join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, along with The Hollies, the Stooges, the Genesis and Jimmy Cliff.

Meanwhile, Stooges frontman Iggy Pop, 62, said he was delighted to finally be recognised.
