Rush, Deep Purple, Public Enemy, NWA Among Newest Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Induction ceremony will be in LA for the first time since 1993


The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its nominees for the Class of 2013 today, so let the debate begin: Who made or missed the cut? Which name comes as a surprise, and who can claim the much-delayed "Duh?"

Is it longtime snub-ees Deep Purple and Rush being nominated for the first time or rap icons N.W.A and Public Enemy, not only making the 2013 ballot but being the only acts to do so in their first year of eligibility?
