Rush, Kraftwerk and Public Enemy Lead Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 2013 Nominees
Published Oct 04, 2012The 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony caused a bit of a hubbub thanks to Axl Rose, who attempted to turn down Guns N' Roses' induction with a lengthy online rant. The museum is doubtless hoping its 2013 inductees are a little more gracious, as it has now unveiled the latest batch of nominees.
This year's hopefuls are Rush, Public Enemy, Kraftwerk, N.W.A., Randy Newman, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Deep Purple, Donna Summer, Heart, Albert King, Chic, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Marvelettes, the Meters and Procol Harum.
This year's induction process is unique for the Rock Hall in that, for the first time, fans get to vote and help decide the winner. Between today (October 4) and December 5, members of the public can select the five acts who they want to see earn a spot in the museum.
An announcement explains, "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."
Vote right here. If you need a refresher on who all of this years hopefuls are, watch the nominations video below to check out clips from each act on the ballot.
