  1. My vote goes for Run-DMC, Metallica, Jeff Beck, The Stooges, and either War or Little Anthony and the Imperials. We will see what happens though. The rock hall has not been very good abot inducting groups like The Stooges in recent years. The one exciting this is that the induction will actually happen in Cleveland this time. That has not happened in quite awhile, because the board of the Rock Hall is in NY and they hog the ceremonies. Now the ceremonies will be rotating between NYC, Cleveland, and LA.
