Trent Reznor to induct The Cure into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 

Courtesy Rock & Roll Hall of FameTrent Reznor will be the presenter for The Cure when the goth icons are inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame later this month.

The Nine Inch Nails frontman is a big fan of Robert Smith and company, especially the The Cure's 1985 album, The Head on the Door.

"That album got me through a lot of long dark times," Reznor told The Quietus last summer. "I felt that this Robert Smith guy really understood who I was, and I loved The Cure from that point on."

The other presenters for the 2019 Rock Hall inductees include David Byrne for Radiohead, Queen's Brian May for Def Leppard, Harry Styles for Stevie Nicks, Duran Duran's John Taylor and Simon Le Bon for Roxy Music, Janelle Monae for Janet Jackson, and The Bangles' Susanna Hoffs for The Zombies.

The 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place March 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. It'll air on HBO April 27.
