Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inducts Songs for the First Time, Including 'Born to Be Wild’ and 'Louie Louie'
History was made as The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame officially began honoring songs in addition to music artists at the 33rd annual induction ceremony this past Saturday night (the 14th of April, 2018) in Cleveland's Public Auditorium, immortalizing six singles.
"Little Steven" Van Zandt, introduced the new Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Singles ‘song’ category stating "A recognition of the excellence of the singles that shaped rock 'n' roll, kind of a rock 'n' roll jukebox, records by artists not in the Rock Hall - which is not to say these artists will never be in the Rock Hall. They just are not in the Rock Hall at the moment." We say, “well said Little Steven!”
The first inductees in the category included "Rocket 88" by Jackie Breston and his Delta Cats (1951), Link Wray and his Ray Men's "Rumble" (1958), "Louie Louie" by The Kingsmen (1963), Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade of Pale" (1967) and of course the best for lasts Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild" (1968).
As Van Zandt introduced the new category he added, "We all know the history of music can be changed with just one song, one record. In three minutes we suddenly enter a new direction, a movement, a style, an experience. That three-minute song can result in a personal revelation, an epiphany that changes our lives." On Behalf of our legend ~ the late great GOLDY MCJOHN, Sonja Goadsby and the McJohn and Goadsby Families, Anthony Spadaro Jr., Team HungryGenius and Team Goldy, we proudly announce to you and unofficially proclaim APRIL 14, 2018 AS #BORNTOBEWILD #BORNTOBEWILDDAY!
