Without a DOUBT!!! They were innovators and their music transcends. I'm not a fan of rap, but theirs is an entirely different genre with a style so unique...so of course they deserve to be there.

Oh yeah. I think I know why they chose them though. It was to appease MTV - seriously. A couple of years ago when they inducted Neil Diamond, MTV made a big deal out of it because they said that he was not worthy. Their problem is that Neil, and many others, did not need MTV promotion to make them a star. Those people did it with talent, not antics.
