Run DMC in the rock hall of fame

Run DMC is well known hip hop trio, but I just saw this little piece of news: Run-DMC: Walk This Way to Hall of Fame

Run-DMC, the Queens trio that led the charge for rap's successful crossover into the cultural mainstream, has received the ultimate honor: enshrinement in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame.

So, why would a hip-hop trio get honored in the rock genre? Obviously because of their brilliant 1986 collaboration with Aerosmith on "Walk This Way", where they took Aerosmith's old hit to new heights.

It looks like all the youtube videos have embedding disabled, but you can find it here.
