GALLERY: Musicians Inducted Into The Rock Hall Before 50

Billie Joe Armstrong turns 44 today (February 17), and just last year, he and his Green Day bandmates Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt were all inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.  More often than not, many would assume such an honor would be reserved for more…shall we say “senior” musicians, but Green Day aren’t the only young pups to get enshrined in Cleveland.  Here’s some other Rock Hall inductees that got in before they turned 50.
