2007 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees

Yep, only 9 inductees this year.
Here, I've ranked my choices.

1. R.E.M. (First time nominees and an easy no-brainer)
2. Chic (Not just a great disco band, but a great band)
3. Van Halen (For the David Lee Roth years, not the Sammy Hagar ones)
4. Patti Smith (Should've been there before Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde)
5. Stooges (Iggy Pop-one of the great characters in Rock History)
6. Dave Clark Five (lots of hits and a great drum sound)
7. Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five (I think Run DMC should be the first rap artist, but these guys were there at the beginning)
8. Joe Tex (A journeyman, but don't hold that against him)
9. Ronettes (Ronnie Spector, of course, but I'll take Darlene Love)
