“Weird Al” For The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame?

The criteria for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is very clear: the first record from the artist must have been released 25 years ago and said artists should be someone of significant influence to the music. According to the creator of a petition, “Weird” Al Yankovic fits that description perfectly with his close to 40-year career. The squeezebox playing rocker has five Grammys under his belt and was the first to put out a comedy album on CD, as well as have countless videos played on MTV, notes author Sutter Meinke.
