DON'T FORGET, MY SON, TO INCLUDE EVERYONE: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced its finalists for potential induction in 2009:

Metallica, Run-DMC, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Chic, Iggy and the Stooges, Jeff Beck, War, Wanda Jackson, and Bobby Womack.
First-time eligibles not nominated included Bon Jovi, the Smiths, Cyndi Lauper, Queensrÿche, and Howard Jones; still waiting for their call from the Veterans' Committee are Rush, Genesis/Peter Gabriel/Phil Collins, the Beastie Boys, Duran Duran, the Replacements, the Cougar (he's in -- oops!), The Cure/Depeche Mode/New Order, Cheap Trick, Journey, KISS and Richard Thompson ... among many others.

Top five vote-getters will be inducted. I've linked to our Keltner analyses previously performed, and we'll try to cover many of the others in the coming weeks.
