Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2009

Looking ahead to the class of 2009, there are 3 no-brainers that are eligible for the first time:
Run DMC, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Smiths.
The Smiths present an interesting moment for the Hall. Hugely influential on both UK and US alternative groups, but more popular in the UK. I have a feeling they won't get nominated. But I hope I'm wrong.
Also eligible for the first time is Bon Jovi. Did you know that they're in the UK Hall of Fame? But I say they have no chance, despite their continued popularity. Critic's didn't like them. And that's the kiss of death when getting nominated.
