    Default Name 5.

    SHAMELESSLY ripped off from a board that shall not be named. Looked fun, though, so here we go!

    Name a category that includes at least 5 items. Next person has to name 5 things in the category (NO GOOGLING, PEOPLE), and then post another category.

    I'll start:

    Name five people who have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame more than once.

    If you aren't sure, post it anyway. If you're wrong, we'll point and laugh.

    I can't answer yours.

    (Oh, and you're wrong on the last two, but if you included fellow Beatle George Harrison and fellow Yardbird Jeff Beck, you would have gotten it! Eric Clapton has actually been inducted 3 times.)
