Van Halen, R.E.M., the Stooges, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Patti Smith, the Dave Clark Five, the Ronettes, Chic, and Joe Tex are the nine nominees for 2007 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Announcement of the nominees will go out to over 500 voters who will help choose who will be inducted in January 2007. According to the museum's website, the Foundation "generally inducts five to seven performers each year." To be eligible for nomination, an act must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of the nomination. All five inductees will be represented in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, OH.
