Two Cougars and Five Daves Inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Madonna, John Mellencamp and The Dave Clark Five take top honors at the March 10 ceremony.

With more than 200 million albums sold, Madonna was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the very first year of her eligibility.

The induction of 60's "British Invasion" rockers, The Dave Clark Five, came less than two weeks after losing lead singer Mike Smith to pneumonia at age 64.

"Heartland rocker" John "Cougar" Mellencamp was also inducted along with "rock and roll poet" Leonard Cohen and the 1960s surf band band The Ventures. Mellencamp took the stage to sing his 1984 single "Authority Song."

Iggy Pop and The Stooges performed at The Material Girl's request at the ceremony- the Godfather of Punk saluting the ultimate 80s commercial icon.
