NEW YORK - The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced this year's nominees on Thursday including hip-hop pioneers Public Enemy, the late Donna Summer and rock bands Deep Purple and Rush, and it said the public for the first time would be able to vote on who should be inducted.

Music fans will have until Dec. 5 to vote and their ballots for the top five artists will be combined with those from a committee of music experts to decide which artists will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at an April 18 ceremony in Los Angeles.

In the past, that decision has been taken solely by a Hall of Fame committee of some 600 artists, historians and members of the music industry.

Hopefuls on this year's list include Heart, N.W.A, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Randy Newman, Albert King, The Marvelettes, The Meters, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Procol Harum, Chic and influential German electronic music group Kraftwerk.

Others got their nods after death, including Deep Purple co-founder and keyboardist Jon Lord, who died in July aged 71. British heavy metal rockers Deep Purple released 18 studio albums over their career spanning six decades.

Disco queen Summer also died earlier this year from cancer at age 63. The sultry-voiced singer won five Grammy awards and sold more than 130 million records worldwide.

While some of nominees, such as Jett and California hip hop group N.W.A., have stayed under the radar in recent years, others such as rockers Rush and Public Enemy, are still going strong, releasing albums this year and performing live.

American hard rock band Heart's new album "Fanatic" was released this week. Singer Randy Newman, 68, has forged a successful career writing film scores, most recently for 2010's "Toy Story 3" and for the upcoming 2013 Disney Pixar animation "Monsters University."

To be eligible for nomination, a band must have released its first single or album at least 25 years before the year of nomination. This year, that meant the band's first recording was no later than 1987.

Music fans can cast their vote starting on Thursday at websites rockhall.com, hbo.com, CNN.com and rollingstone.com.

The April induction ceremony will be broadcast on cable TV channel HBO later in 2013.


They'd better get in! Or else it's on.

They might not be a favourite band of many people, especially outside of Canada and with the younger crowd, but they are three of the most talented rock musicians around. They deserve it for sure.

No doubt, Geddy Lee and Neil Peart were consistently rated at or near the top of what they do for a long time. And how can you not love Peart's circular drumset!

It's about friggin' time. I love how the fan vote counts for 1/600th of the total vote.

Their show in Vancouver July 2011 was awesome. You definitely get your money's worth when you go to one of their shows. Though it was mere days after the SCF defeat they showed they are not above pandering to the crowd.

About time. There are many bands you can make a case that should be in there but Rush to me is the most baffling how they got snubbed year by year.

So, just to keep the conversation going on the greatest band this country has ever produced, let's hear your favorite albums/songs.

I know there is going to be a lot of 2112 and Moving Pictures, but I'm partial to Farewell to Kings and Closer to the Heart.

Does Rush deserve its Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination?

No, it just proves that if you hang in long enough, eventually you’ll be invited to join
You can’t say there has been a (ahem) rush to judgment in the decision to nominate Rush for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. After all, the Canadian trio, birthed in a basement in Willowdale in the late sixties, has been eligible for many years. But the announcement signals yet another lapse in taste on the part of the Hall that has seen non-entities such as the Dave Clark Five, ABBA and Don Kirshner join worthy inductees like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead. Yes, Geddy Lee may be a better singer now than in 1977, but has time really healed the millions of eardrums his caterwauling injured, nay destroyed, over most of the band’s career? The Rush nomination also highlights a glaring omission in the Hall’s (non)-recognition of Canadian talent, namely its continued disavowal of the genius of the Guess Who. Rush should insist that the wrong be righted before it receives consideration. Its nomination is simply proof that if you hang in long enough, eventually you’ll be invited to join a club to which you should not belong. – James Adams

Yes, this audacious nerd trio belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Rush is the serious goods; no time for the dainty. And it’s called progressive rock for a reason, so, rubes, move on. If for the concept album 2112 alone, this audacious nerd trio belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, that messed-up place of Madonna, backbeats and and ersatz priests from The Temples of Syrinx. Geddy Lee, the whip-voiced siren, laid it on the line in 1976: “See how [Rush] sings like a sad heart, and joyously screams out its pain/ sounds that build high like a mountain, or notes that fall gently like rain.” These pasty suburbanites had so much rock, there was no time for the roll. Pretentious lyrics and outrageous time signatures from Neil Peart? Bring it on. (And his most excellent seventies ’stache too.) Guitarist Alex Lifeson: Did he not invent the use of the chorus effect on 1977’s A Farewell to Kings? Listen to Rush’s music and hear what it can do, Rock and Hall of Fame in Cleveland. There’s something there as strong as life – it’s about time it reached you. – Brad Wheeler
