The good folks at Twentyfourbit have posted the video to Tom Waits’ acceptance speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 15, with music legend Neil Young inducting him into the hallowed institution.

Included in the clip are two musical performances (“Make It Rain” and “Rain Dogs”), as well as Waits’ full speech, and trust us — the man has a way with words.

Let’s all relive a little bit of rock and roll history.
