Rush, Public Enemy among Rock Hall of Fame noms

Updated:

Rush, Deep Purple, Public Enemy and N.W.A. are among the group of first-time nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

They join returnees Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Randy Newman, Donna Summer and Kraftwerk among the 15 artists vying for entry.

Even in the iPod age, the list of nominees up for induction in 2013 is as eclectic as they come, ranging from prog rock to electronica, disco, and funk and the blues.

A group of 600 artists, music historians and members of the industry will choose 2013's inductees. They will be honored April 18 in Los Angeles.

Chic, Albert King, The Marvelettes, The Meters, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Procol Harum round out the list of nominees.
