I would gladly take both of them over Madonna, who has been in there for at least 5 years.

I get that point, but still its rock n roll. No matter how amazing PE and NWA are, they are still just Hip Hop.

I think it's kind of sad you have to vote for this. Both Deep Purple and Rush should be inducted no questions asked.

Edit: Just voted and Rush and Deep Purple are currently the top nominees, with 29.28% and 16.36% of the votes respectively.

So this is just the nomination process. And all of the fan voting counts as one ballot out of over 600... cool.

voted Deep Purple, Rush, Heart, Joan Jett and...Public Enemy. They transcended just hip-hop back in the day.

The Hall hasn't been about purely rock music for decades. Keep up.

Yes, because they've never inducted any rock artists before. It's not like Alice Cooper and Guns N Roes didn't get in recently;)

Out of the list Rush, Deep Purple and Heart are the most deserving. All three should've have been inducted a long time ago.

Same ones I voted for too. I added NWA as well. You could argue they did even more for hip hop than PE. I love both so I voted for both.

Calm your britches, they were nominated, not actually inducted. Kiss was first nominated 2 years ago and they still didn't get it in.

apologies to Wizard, but fuck NWA. Eric B & Rakim, Slick Rick, Kane, KRS-One, and Public Enemy of course should get in long before them.

Calling the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame the RNR HOF is like calling MTV Music Television, jus' sayin'.

At least MTV acknowledged the fact that the MTV abbreviation doesn't mean anything anymore (much like WWE).

Just so I am clear... there's a chance that Flava Flav could be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but Phil Lynott won't be?

Albert King

At least two of us know what we're talking about.

At least two of us know what we're talking about.

One of the two things my music teacher in high school did. Taught me the basic AC/DC rock beat on the drums, and helped me discover some classic Blues and Rock And Roll. Albert King is the man and should have been in a long time ago. Had I known he was up for nomination this year, I would have played him in my Non-Metal show I did this week. He's going in the next time I do it.

Shit, they'll induct some fucking mallcore band before Phil Lynott.

Lame that Deep Purple didn't get it.

Donna Summer gets in for the sole fact that she croaked.

Jon Lord also croaked, and was actually a member of an actual rock band. A band that happened to write the most recognizable guitar riff in history. And Deep Purple doesn't get in.

Fuck logic.

I'm glad Albert King made it, but fuck DP not getting in.

Fuck Donna Summer. I understand hip-hop being considered a form of rock & roll, but this dumb disco bitch? lulz

and Deep Purple should have been inducted in 1994.

Wow, Deep Purple not getting in is pathetic. There's a reason I and many others have no respect for the RNRHOF.
