It made no sense whatsoever, other than "hey, let's induct some black people so they don't call us racist".
I bet they were just cringing in their seats when Patti Smith was shouting "ni g ger" into the microphone.

Well as far as I'm concerned the rrhof has lost all credibility.I will never go there or support it in any way ever again.Why dont they get their own hip hop hof?This whole show was a farce.The only good thing was Sammy and Mike jammin'.Velvet revolver totally sucked!! I like Slash but his playing was horrible on the VH cover of Aint Talkin bout Love.That other crap song they did must have been their own and was horrible!!! May the RRHOF RIP...its over (R & R) as we know it.ANd oh yea...people get over it and move on...VH will never be a band again for so many obvious reasons.

The show really sucked. Van Halen got totally disrespected I thought. Velvet Revolver didn't make any effort in their speech or in there performance. As far as Grand master flash. They are one of the best RAP bands of all time. RAP, NOT Rock. The sad thing is, there aren't many rock bands after 1983 that are worthy of induction so get used to these rap guys getting in. I think you will see more. Unfortunately..
