Eminem Inducts Run DMC into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


As of April 4th 2009 Run DMC has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, something they were told would never happen at the beginning of their career. Through the years they have broke stereotypes, meshed rock with rap(which at the time was unheard of) and opened peoples eyes to a new type of music and lifestyle. I think that Eminem inducting them into the Hall of Fame is a perfect fit, as he himself has broken stereotypes, changed music and inspired a new generation of artists and performers. We are living in more understanding times compared to the era when Run DMC first came out, this induction is an indication of that. Hopefully Eminem will get his own induction somewhere down the road, he certainly deserves it. Congratulations to Run DMC, thanks for opening so many doors. From Queens New York to Halifax Nova Scotia, the influence is global. I have included the video of the induction below, I have also posted a link to Run DMC's Wiki page which has a lot more info on the group.
