Last night in New York, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted its latest members — and Madonna officially became a legend, bitches! But some of our other all-time favorite musicians were there last night, as both honorees and performers: Iggy Pop, Patti LaBelle, Leonard Cohen, John Mellencamp, Lou Reed, Joan Jett, Ben Harper — seriously, this is like half of my iTunes, no joke. Hollywooders — Tom Hanks, Chevy Chase, Michael J. Fox, Ed Burns — were also there, and on the whole, everyone rocked the red carpet. Except for Madonna. (Oy.) The full Good, Bad, and Ugly of the 2008 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Awards, after the jump.

God bless Iggy Pop for still rocking the shirtless chest and leather pants. That doesn't mean I have to like the look of it, though.

Uhhhhh Joan Jett and Iggy Pop are the only two that look worth of their rock star titles. Fuck those boring suits, Zzzzzzz.

Damien Rice is weird, but awesome, so he gets a pass. Ben Harper looks like a total tool (which he is and his music blows since he found Jesus).
