The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Spotify playlists of inducted "performers" and "early influences")

Info: «The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, established in 1983 and located in Cleveland, Ohio, United States, is dedicated to recording the history of some of the best-known and most influential musicians, bands, producers, and others that have in some major way influenced the music industry, particularly in the area of rock and roll» (Wikipedia). Each year, the Foundation picks some new inductees, in four different categories: performers, non-performers, early influences and lifetime achievement. The following Spotify playlists include one song for each inductee in the performers and early influences categories. By March 2016, every artist had at least one track available on Spotify, making both playlists technically complete. 
Date of publication: 1986-2016
