Run D.M.C. Nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Run D.M.C., along with Metallica and the Stooges, are among the nine nominees for next year’s hall of fame class, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation announced Monday. Nominated alongside such bands as Metallica and The Stooges, Run D.M.C. are the only Rap Group on the ballot. Much has been said and written about the importance of Run D.M.C, but it should never be underestimated how much of an impact the group had on a culture that many now take for granted. Congrats to Run D.M.C. and the rest of the nominees.

  1. “Run DMC being nominated for induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame is a banner moment for hip hop music. They are the true godfathers who brought this genre of music into the mainstream and legitimized this musical format in the eyes of the masses. Much like Grandmaster Flash did in 2002, Run DMC will surely pave the way for more hip hop artists to be recognized by this great institution.”
