The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is underway at New York’s Barclays Center. This year’s honorees include a band nearer and dearer to SPIN’s heart than any other: Nirvana. We’re also pleased to see KISS, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens, and the E Street Band formally recognized, not to mention legendary talent managers Brian Epstein (the Beatles) and Andrew Loog Oldham (the Rolling Stones). Below, you’ll find a frequently updated collection of the big night’s best moments, captured via Twitter, Instagram, and Getty Images.
