Grandmaster Flash & The Furious will receive a Grammy Hall of Fame Award for their 1982 hit, "The Message," at next year's Grammy Awards.

This is the first time a hip hop record has received the honor since the Grammys were established in 1973.

"The new entries, which also include Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A." album, Cole Porter's pop standard "Anything Goes," Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's pioneering rap single "The Message" and Tina Turner's career-rejuvenating hit single "What's Love Got to Do With It" bring the total number of recordings chosen for the Hall of Fame to 906." (Los Angeles Times)

Other notable inductees include Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.
