The legendary Irish band have been nominated alongside Whitney Houston, The Notorious B.I.G., Nine Inch Nails and more.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame have revealed their nominations for the class of 2020 - including Thin Lizzy among the 16 acts.
As well as the iconic Irish band, the star-studded list features the likes of Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, the Doobie Brothers, Soundgarden, T. Rex, Motörhead, Dave Mathhews Band, Pat Benatar, MC5, Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Rufus with Chaka Khan, Judas Priest, Todd Rundgren, and, in his first year of eligibility, The Notorious B.I.G.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame invites fans to vote for their favourite acts on their website, with the inductees due to be announced in January.
Last year's inductees included Radiohead, Stevie Nicks, Janet Jackson, the Cure, Roxy Music, Def Leppard and the Zombies - the largest class since 2004. In her acceptance speech, Jackson called on the Hall of Fame to include more women among their nominees.
Artists become eligible for the Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their debut album - making Oasis, Daft Punk, Elliott Smith and Sleater-Kinney eligible for the first time this year.
The 2020 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is set to take place at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio, on May 2, 2020.
