MELBOURNE (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Australian punk progenitors Radio Birdman were among the six acts inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association's Hall of Fame on July 18, the Australian Associated Press reported.

They weren't the only inductees. Among others who got the nod were:
Marcia Hines, an American-born singer who rose to stardom after appearing in the production Jesus Christ Superstar. The success of that show served as a springboard to a recording deal and her albums have consistently charted since then.
Frank Ifield, an influential country crooner who's professional output was best recognized during the 1960s, most notably with the chart-topping breakthrough single "I Remember You."
Singer-songwriter Brian Cadd who worked with groups Axiom and The Flying Burrito Brothers among others before he embarked on a successful solo career.
Australian indie rockers Hoodoo Gurus, who are currently prepping new material their first album since 2004.
Seminal blues rockers Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons who enjoyed considerable success in the 1970s and early 1980s along with a brief resurgence in 2001 & 2003.
