2007 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees

And the nominations go to:

Van Halen
the Stooges
Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five
Joe Tex
Dave Clark Five
Patti Smith
the Ronettes

Which of these will make it in, and which will be left out in the cold? Does anyone even care anymore? The only ones worthy of induction are the fellas in R.E.M. (yes, even Bill Berry) and Patti Smith. Van Halen doesn't seem like they've been around long enough, and I'm not sure that their music has had as much impact on the music scene as other bands' (although Eddie's guitar skills are extraordinary).

Sorry, KISS - denied! Again! Maybe if you had kept your makeup on the whole time, instead of taking it off for a while, you'd be rocking Cleveland right now as well as Detroit.
