Beastie Boys Inducted Into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Eric B. & Rakim Cut

The Beastie Boys are headed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The legendary hip-hop group, known for hits like “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)” and “No Sleep till Brooklyn,” will join the likes of Guns N’ Roses, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, Laura Nyro and England’s Small Faces as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s lineup of performer inductees for 2012.

Although the Internet lit up in joy and approval over their induction, it also reacted to the snubbing of Eric B. & Rakim. The pioneering rap duo was amongst the 15 final nominees that didn’t make the cut from today’s inductee list.

The induction ceremony will take place at the Rock Hall in Cleveland on April 14. –Jakinder Singh
