Petition Asks To Have The Original MTV VJs Entered In The Rock Hall of Fame

MTV had a huge cultural impact on rock music back in the '80s, so there's a petition going around demanding that the five original MTV VJs be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

For you post-Gen-Xers, we're talking about Mark Goodman,Alan Hunter,Nina Blackwood,Martha Quinn, and J. J. Jackson. Even if you've never heard of a single one of them, take my word: They were gods in the early '80s.

And the petition notes that there is precedent, because, quote, "both Alan Freed and Dick Clark have been inducted . . . as non-performers."

You can find the petition onChange.org. Last we checked, it had over 3,500 signatures. Of course, since this was just started by a fan, it's unclear if the Rock Hall will address it, no matter how viral it goes.
