Madonna to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

The committee announced the list of 2008 Inductees today:



The Beastie Boys

Leonard Cohen

The Dave Clark Five

“The 2008 inductees are trailblazers — all unique and influential in their genres,” Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation President and CEO Joel Peresman said in a statement. “From poetry to pop, these five acts demonstrate the rich diversity of rock and roll itself.”

To be eligible, artists must have issued a first single or album at least 25 years before nomination.

Madonna Louise Ciccone signed with Sire Records in 1982 and became one of MTV’s first stars two years later with “Like A Virgin.” She has constantly altered her image and appearance ever since, showing staying power that few ’80s stars could muster.
