Music has always been one of those particularly amazing pieces of artful expression; it can bring people together, make you think, laugh, cry, and sometimes even change your life. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was established by music industry big shots over a quarter century ago to recognize, and appreciate, outstanding excellence in music.
The 31st annual ceremony will be held today (April 8, 2016) at Barclay’s Center, and aired live on HBO for those lucky viewers; we’re already feeling pretty excited about some of our favorite new inducted musicians and groups.
