DiMA Honors This Year’s National Recording Registry Inductees

Washington, D.C. (April 16, 2024) – Digital Media Association (DiMA) President and CEO Graham Davies today released the following statement congratulating the 2024 Inductees into the National Recording Registry:

“DiMA and its member companies applaud the artists, songwriters, and composers of the Class of 2024 Inductees into the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress. Each year, the National Recording Registry selects, with public input, a range of works representative of the nation’s diverse cultural and historical recorded sound heritage to be preserved within the Library of Congress’ sound collection. The class of 2024 inductees, comprising 25 recordings spanning nearly 80 years of American history, includes “Wide Open Spaces” by The Chicks, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin, “Ready to Die” by The Notorious B.I.G., “Amor Eterno” by Juan Gabriel, and albums This is a Recording by Lily Tomlin, Arrival by ABBA, Pieces of Africa by Kronos Quartet, and Dookie by Green Day. These recordings honor those artists and creators whose treasured work continues to influence the world of music today. We celebrate the National Recording Registry’s selection and congratulate each inductee on this unique recognition. We also encourage all music fans to explore the array of this year’s Inductee Class on their favorite streaming service.”
