Billboard reports that Metallica, Run-D.M.C. and the Stooges lead the list of nine acts up for induction next year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of the nine acts, five will be chosen in January for enshrinement during an April 4 ceremony at Cleveland's Public Hall.

Also on this year's ballot are Jeff Beck, Chic, Wanda Jackson, Little Anthony and the Imperials, War and Bobby Womack.

The 2009 ceremony marks the first that that this seemingly secret party will be open to the public, and if that ain't enough, it will be held in Cleveland, the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum for the first time since 1997.

I think most of you reading this probably couldn't care less, and probably are THRILLED that the Sex Pistols shunned the dubious honor... but are just as thrilled that some of our favorite fuck-ups - such as Dee Dee Ramone got to show up at the shindig and simply be themselves.
