Bob Seger and Robert Plant are two of the 23 artists who make up the playlist of the classic rock station found in the 'Grand Theft Auto V' video game. And there's probably a lot of people listening to those songs right now, since the game earned over $800 million in sales on its Sept. 17 release day, the most successful first-day figure in history.

The other is a veteran American rocker who did his time in '60s bands before hitting the big time in the '70s. Rod Stewart faces off against Bob Seger in the first round of voting for the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame.
