    Rock Hall of Fame ballot
    NEW YORK (AP) -- The Clash, Elvis Costello and the Attractions and The Police are among the first-time nominees on the 2003 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot.

    Swedish hit-makers ABBA, disco pioneers Chic and the German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk are also eligible for the Hall of Fame.

    The Sex Pistols return to the ballot after not being voted in last year, meaning the hall could give its first nod to the British punk rock generation after two American acts, the Ramones and Talking Heads, were inducted this year.

    Longtime nominees Black Sabbath, whose lead singer Ozzy Osbourne reached a new level of television fame this year, are back on the ballot.

    Other nominees include Australian rockers AC/DC, rhythm 'n' blues veterans the Dells, Detroit revolutionary rockers MC5, the Righteous Brothers, the Patti Smith Group, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Steve Winwood.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008

    It's obvious VH isn't even eligible yet for some reason.

    Oh, I know that! 1974-1977 is the answer, by the way...
