    R.E.M., Van Halen Lead 2007 Rock Hall Class
    Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

    R.E.M., Van Halen, Patti Smith, the Ronettes and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame March 12 during a ceremony at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. To be eligible for induction, this year's class had to release their first single no later than 1981.

    The upcoming event will also pay tribute to late Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, who served as the chairman of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation.

    R.E.M. and Van Halen face the decision of whether to perform at the ceremony with ex-members. R.E.M. reunited with former drummer Bill Berry last fall to celebrate its induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and even hit the studio with him to record a track for an as-yet-unreleased charity album.

    For Van Halen, the situation is more complex. The group is without a lead singer, although rumors are swirling that original frontman David Lee Roth will tour with the outfit this summer. In addition, Eddie Van Halen's teenage son recently replaced longtime bassist Michael Anthony in the band.

    That's d_b, chistoso.

    And R.E.M. should not be in the title game.

    You want a true playoff or a plus-one deal?

    A dollar says that most of the voters couldn't name two songs by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.

    On the outside looking in because they're a one-note band that sucks? MUAHAHAHAHHAHA!!!

    This will be awesome just for the drama of whether or not DLR and Michael Anthony get on stage with Eddie and Alex. Would love to see this in person, but I know that's not happening.

    Plus, they were pioneers of hip-hop. Even if they didn't have a lot of hits, a lot of people had them based on their sound.
