Today the nominations for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame's class of 2013 were revealed. Among the 15 nominees, there are the mighty Rush and Deep Purple.

2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame other nominees: The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Albert King, Kraftwerk, The Marvelettes, The Meters, Randy Newman, N.W.A, Procol Harum, Public Enemy and Donna Summer.

For the first time, the public gets to vote. Beginning on Thursday, October 4th, and continuing through December 3rd, the public can vote for the five nominees they believe to be most deserving of induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a "fans' ballot" that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2013 inductees. The results will be announced in mid-December. You can vote here.

Rush responded to the nomination: "We are honored to be among the nominees for this year's Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame. We are especially thrilled for the many, many dedicated Rush fans to whom this nomination is so very important."

The ceremony will be held on April 18th at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles for the first time since 1993. It's usually held in New York at the Waldforf Astoria, but it was held in Cleveland in 1997, 2009 and 2012.

There is no accounting for taste, after all, but who is more rock and roll, Rush or Donna Summer?

Deep Purple!

They still use the phrase "Rock And Roll". Don't know how its possible to take them seriously.

Fuck yes, N.W.A.!

The Hall is a joke.

With that out of the way: Deep Purple and Rush should definitely be inducted. Who knows if they will though? Kraftwerk will probably get in.
JohnDoe - 04.10.2012 at 23:27  
It's also nice to see Procol Harum nominated; also Albert king who's a great bluesman.
Kraftwerk is a surprise, too, I don't think they have much chance though.

It's like a game. Can you spot the rock bands?
CHEF METALHEAD - 04.10.2012 at 23:41  
The end of the world will be coming after all or is " HELL " freezing over... It's about time Rock N' Roll Hall Of Fame !!!
Sir Thrashalot - 05.10.2012 at 00:02  
Honestly, if I was Rush and Deep Purple, i'd be insulted. After LEGENDARY careers, I need to have people voting for me against such bands and artists as "The Marvelettes" and "Donna Summers" !? WTF guys?
Valentin B - 05.10.2012 at 00:43  
The only reason I check news like these out is to see what completely non-rock-and-roll acts they are thinking of putting into the Hall.. guess someone needs the publicity, I mean seriously, N.W.A ? do these guys even listen to the bands? I'm not saying the music is good or bad, but if it's supposed to be about a certain genre why do they get acts who probably don't even want themselves to be associated with rock?

Fuck the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

This hall of fame is a fucking joke. If they were truly a rock n' roll hall of fame they would've nominated them way earlier
Ace Frawley - 05.10.2012 at 06:03  
I'll just echo the remarks of others that this so-called Hall of Fame is a total joke and completely lame-ass. That's coming from the perspective of a fan of music. It means nothing to me. I'm only interested in bands making good albums. And seeing those bands play live. Who knows, maybe the musicians get off on it and welcome the accolade?
Yellax - 05.10.2012 at 06:12  
Rush, Deep Purple, Chic (a late 70s/early 80s funk-disco band who influenced several hip-hop/rap oriented acts throughout the 80s based on ONE song, Good Times), Heart and Albert King...

I'm not too sure about the other ones...

Chic should for sure be in there...Chic is VERY important...
btbamfan20 - 05.10.2012 at 06:50  
I voted rush, they need to finally win!
LeChron James - 05.10.2012 at 08:07  
Because the first thing I think of when I hear "Rock n Roll" is Public Enemy. Spot on.
qlacs - 05.10.2012 at 10:16  
Rush of course.
nicaZe - 06.10.2012 at 00:25  
Rush, Deep Purple, Heart, Joan Jett and Procol Harum...

N.W.A, Public Enemy and Donna Summer...it's like we add The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Janis Joplin and others to metal storm...wtf

Finally names worthy of mention being nominated. I personally voted for Kraftwerk since I love their work (please don't kill me), however Deep Purple and Rush need to be recognized too (their nominations are way overdue).

KISS invented the song about Rockin n Rollin all night and Partying everyday. Why has no one nominated them yet??
