Created to immortalize some of the best and most influential musical acts of all time, the museum stands in Cleveland, Ohio, as a shrine to all things rock. With exhibits on the various stages of rock history and the bands that shaped it as well as making note of different musicians inducted into their halls, like Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Presley, Marvin Gaye, David Bowie and many more, there's no shortage of things to do, see and hear at this museum.
Legends of RockThe Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was first established in 1983 as a means of cataloging the history of rock music and the most influential artists related to it. Created by Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, the museum itself would provide a permanent home for this collection of information. In 1986, following a passionate battle between the cities of Memphis and Cleveland, the latter eventually won. From that point on, the Hall of Fame has been one of the top locations for music buffs from across the country to explore, providing in-depth knowledge about all facets of the genre along with tons of memorabilia from the artists.

How often are new artists inducted into the Hall of Fame?New artists are inducted into the Hall of Fame each year. In general, only about 10 or less are inducted each year to ensure that the selection process remains somewhat rigorous.
How are the artists in the Hall of Fame chosen?The selection process for including new artists in the Hall of Fame has several conditions applied to who can and can't be included. The first is that a given artist must have ties to the rock genre. Next, it must have been at least 25 years since they released their first commercial recording. If both of these conditions are met, a committee associated with the museum reviews people for one of several categories: Performers, the Ahmet Ertegun Award (previously known as non-performers), Early Influences (artists who were alive to shape the beginnings of the genre) and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Award for Musical Excellence (honoring those who have significantly contributed to rock). In 2018, another category for influential single songs was also included.
