I honestly thought he was famous for just being in the sausage business.

It's even been covered by Johnny Cash. "At the bottom of this mine lies a big, big man."

People my age remember the song, and his numerous tv shows but mostly kids in the 1960s remember him as Daniel Boone's sidekick on that tv show. Perception is reality
Run DMC Metallica Jeff Beck (actually his second induction, as he also went in with the Yardbirds) Bobby Womack Little Anthony & the Imperials Five excellent choices, but I'm a bit surprised the Stooges didn't make it on their first try.
