Run DMC is in the R&R Hall of Fame

Run DMC, the venerable hip hop group was finally honored and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

This is a huge step, and marks the second hip hop group to make it into the hall.  Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five made it in a few years ago.  Oddly enough, there’s no sign of Sugarhill Gang, which is rather surprising to me.

So this year’s inductees include both Run DMC and Metallica, as well as several lesser known groups.  It seems like an odd grouping, but I’m damn proud.

Props to Pitchfork for picking up on this story.
