Far more than just the group that brought Hip Hop to the suburbs (which was impressive in its own right), the Beastie Boys were actually a very accomplished group that utilized Punk influences and a cunning wit to create a deceptively diverse musical discography. This group makes the influence criteria far better than most of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
Inducted in 2012. From New York City, New York, U.S.A.
Adam Yauch aka MCA (vocals, bass), Michael Diamond aka Mike D (vocals, drums), Adam Horowitz aka ADROCK (vocals, guitar)
