Talking Heads' frontman David Byrne is set to induct Radiohead into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

The 34th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on March 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The ceremony will premiere on HBO on April 27.

Meanwhile, Radiohead will not be attending the ceremony as previously confirmed by frontman Thom Yorke.

"We've always been very blasé about that stuff. So we don't want to offend anyone. We just think that we just don't quite understand it," the singer said of the Rock Hall honor to Variety.

"We've had it explained to us, so it's cool. But we don't really understand it as English people," he added. "I think our problem is essentially that every awards ceremony in the U.K. stinks. We grew up with the Brits, which is like this sort of drunken car crash that you don't want to get involved with."

Stevie Nicks, who made it into the Rock Hall in 1998 with Fleetwood Mac, will be inducted by Harry Styles. Queen's Brian May is set to induct Def Leppard, and Janelle Monáe will induct Janet Jackson.

Trent Reznor will be inducting The Cure, while Duran Duran's John Taylor and Simon Le Bon will induct Roxy Music. Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles will induct The Zombies.
