The Beastie Boys received a huge honor on Wednesday (December 7) when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

MCA, Ad-Rock and Mike D have been cranking out hits for 33 years. The group helped put Def Jam Records on the map with their 1999 classic License To Ill. The album went on to sell more than 9 million copies and became the first rap album to top the Billboard 200 chart. In total the group has released 10 albums.

Also inducted were the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns N Roses, Laura Nyro, Donovan and The Small Faces.

Notable artists who were nominated but didn't make the cut include Eric B & Rakim, Donna Summers and Chaka Khan.

The induction ceremony will be in Cleveland on April 14, 2012.
