The RockGodz Hall of Fame was founded in 2009 for honoring those who have contributed to rock and roll and who may not have received the recognition that they deserve. The focus of the organization is to acknowledge the valuable contribution that their Inductees have made to rock and roll by bringing us the music of our lives. RockGodz Hall of Fame started in 2009 as a grassroots movement and has been building momentum for the past few years as the premier award in rock and roll. They raise money for their cause through private and corporate donations, sponsors of their events and ticket sales.
