2013 Nominees

Shortlisted names include rock legends like Deep Purple and Rush, rap legends like Public Enemy and NWA, and other legends like Kraftwerk, Donna Summer, Chic, Heart, Procol Harum, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts (!)

Seems there is also a minor public vote element for once, perhaps given that some names on the list should have been included yonks ago Neutral

Nirvana amongst new nominations this year:

The full list of nominees runs:

Paul Butterfield Blues Band
Chic
Deep Purple
Peter Gabriel
Hall and Oates
Kiss
LL Cool J
The Meters
Nirvana
N.W.A.
The Replacements
Linda Ronstadt
Cat Stevens
Link Wray
Yes
The Zombies

Presumably Chic are a shoo-in given Nile Rodgers' worldwide PR efforts this year. Most of those should have been inducted well before now.

Kiss have pulled out of performing at their induction thing, because they can't agree on a line-up (!) Or, possibly, they're just creating some extra publicity. Time will tell.

Well, it's that time yet again, when new inductees are announced:

N.W.A, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick Chosen for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has officially announced next year's inductees: Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, N.W.A and Steve Miller will all join the class of 2016. They will be inducted April 8th during a ceremony at Brooklyn's Barclays Center
There's a fun article there from back in the Spring suggesting 10 acts who ought to be going in soon:

10 Acts That Should Enter the Hall of Fame in 2016

Whilst Cheap Trick and Chicago made it from that list, Chic are notably missing, much as they remain missing from the real HoF, despite a record 10th nomination. How much more promotion and work does Nile Rodgers need to do exactly to get included?!?

The latest batch have been inducted:

Pearl Jam
Joan Baez
Tupac Shakur
Yes
Journey
ELO

It took 900 industry experts, critics and musicians to whittle down the six finalists to take their place within the hallowed walls of the US museum which is located in Cleveland, Ohio.
So why has it taken so long for Yes, Journey & ELO, not to mention Joan "over 50 years in the business" Baez?!?!?!?!??
