Need a break from all the 'economy going to hell' stories? We did this morning and were glad to have this tribute to RUN D-M-C on Morning Edition today. The band is not the first rap band to get into the hall (that was Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five), but they are the first from Hollis, Queens!

Enjoy NPR's look back at the groundbreaking band.

Performing Inductees:
Jeff Beck
