Rock n Roll is a term created by Cleveland radio host Alan Freed-which is why the Hall of Fame is located in Cleveland. Rock n Roll was a new term for an older style of music-rhythm and blues-jump blues, which became soul music in the early 60s. IMO. the hall has it in reverse, it should be the Rhythm N Blues Hall of Fame with a wing dedicated to its derivative, Rock & Roll and Rock without the roll. Muddy Waters said it best, "the blues had a baby and they called it rock n roll"
