Black Sabbath, Blondie, Miles Davis, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the Sex Pistols

These are the 2006 inductees to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Black Sabbath and the Sex Pistols have been nominated numerous times in years past, but finally have their invitation this year to join.

I can't say that I really listened to any of these performers, except perhaps Blondie. (You do realize that Blondie is a group, right? Deborah Harry is the leader singer - she isn't "Blondie" herself.) I still like to sing along to "Heart of Glass" when I hear it on the radio - I prefer it to "Call Me," which I find to be most irritating, musically.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is probably best known in recent years for providing back-up to Bo Bice on "American Idol" and giving a Reese Witherspoon movie its title.

Speaking of Debbie Harry, there is a longstanding debate about who was the better bad girl of rock - Harry or Pat Benatar (who sang "I Love Rock & Roll" and "Love is a Battlefield"). I always thought it was hands-down Harry.

    If the "bad girl" title is earned by life style, I think that Harry qualifies over Benatar.
