Run–D.M.C. (sometimes written Run D.M.C., Run–DMC, or Run DMC) was an American hip hop group from Hollis, in the Queens borough of New York City. Founded by Joseph "Run" Simmons, Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels, and Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell, the group is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture.

Run–D.M.C. were one of the most well-known hip hop acts in the 1980s, who along with LL Cool J, signified the advent of the new school of hip hop music. They were the first group in their genre to have a Gold record and be nominated for a Grammy Award.[1] The group was among the first to show how important the MC/DJ relationship was.[2][3] In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked them number 48 in their list of the greatest musical artists of all time.[3]

In 2007, Run–D.M.C. were was named "The Greatest Hip Hop Group of All Time" by[4] and "Greatest Hip Hop Artist of All Time" by VH1.[5] On April 4, 2009, rapper Eminem inducted them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
