Michigan Artist and Song Eligibility
- Category: About The MRRL
The Michigan Rock and Roll Legends Internet Hall of Fame was originally formed as a tribute to the artists, individuals, and songs from Michigan's first vinyl records era - a time period running roughly from 1950 through 1990. Starting in 2021, artists, individuals, and songs from the CD era were also included.
The definition of a “Michigan artist” is somewhat loose inasmuch as Rock and Roll is not in any way restricted by state borders. To be eligible for induction into the Michigan Rock and Roll Legends Internet Hall of Fame, all artists must meet at least one of the following requirements:
a.) Born in Michigan
b.) Raised in Michigan
c.) Started their career in Michigan
d.) Lived in Michigan while they were recording and performing.
For a song to be eligible to become a Legendary Michigan Song, it must have been recorded by a Michigan artist and released on a 45 r.p.m. vinyl single or a 33 1/3 r.p.m. vinyl album, or a professionally produced CD. Songs released on vinyl EPs or 78 r.p.m. disks are also eligible. Homemade tapes or CDs are not eligible.
