Rock & Roll Never Forgets

R.E.M., Van Halen, the Stooges and Patti Smith are just some of the few artists on the ballot for the 2007 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Scheduled for March 12, 2007 at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel, the ballot also includes the Dave Clark Five, Chic, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Joe Tex and the Ronettes. Five of the nine artists will be chosen for the official list of inductees and announced in January. To be eligible for induction, the 2007 class had to release their first single no later than 1981.

For R.E.M. fans, it might be too good to be true should Patti Smith and the Athens, GA foursome be inducted the very same year. After all, Patti Smith and Michael Stipe are like, BFFs, and stuff.
