They've done this before.

Lika all Halls of Fame they eventually just keep adding people. Etta James comes to mind as a previous one. Great singer, not a rock or pop icon, however.

They inducted Hall and Oats and they were not Rock-N-Roll..Simon Garfunkel.. I don't consider them rockers but it's no skin off my back if they do it...
Hall and Oats not rock?

Put the crack pipe down idiot. There are lots of different types of rock music from pop rock to metal. Jay Z doesn't sing any of them.

Apparently the committee forgot this was a ROCK honor and not a BET honor.

Beyond ridiculous that he gets in while real rock artists are passed over year after year.
This has been a problem for the Rock and Roll HOF for a long time.
They are a lot of Rappers and Disco singers that have been inducted who have no business being there.
Look at one of the recent nominees Carol King is finally nominated but Warren Zevon, Foreigner and Pat Benetar are ignored. The people that run the HOF have no concept of what Rock means/

I never understood why Pat never made it into the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame...

Life is so unfair..

They kept Pete Rose out of the baseball hall of fame for (legally) gambling. If they kept violent offenders drug sellers and abusers out of the R&R hall of fame it would be a big empty hall.

Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday, Etta James, B.B. King, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Bonnie Raitt, Run DMC and, James Taylor are all inductees despite not being Rock and Roll. They appear to have a very broad interpterion of Rock and Roll over there in Cleveland.

a few of them were inducted for being early influences....
