Along with fellow inductees, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Supremes, the Drifters were in the first class of Rock & Roll legends to be initiated into the Hall of Fame. Their classic tune “Under the Boardwalk” is the most played R & B record of all time. 20 other million sellers followed.
