Rush, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Donna Summer, Heart And Albert King Are All In The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

The latest Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees look, as ever, like a who's who of cultural icons. Canadian progressive-rock trio Rush make their long awaited entry, while Public Enemy - with their recent renaissance - are rewarded for their incalculable inspiration to rap music, black culture and equality, Entertainment Weekly reports. 

"We are thrilled to announce this year's class of inductees, which again represents the broad, compelling and significant definition of rock and roll," Joel Peresman, president and chief executive of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement Tuesday. Elsewhere, Donna Summer, Heart and Albert King were also honoured by Rock n Roll Hall of Fame recognition. Acts that made the final ballot but did not make the cut for induction this year were the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Deep Purple, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Kraftwerk, the Marvelettes, the Meters, Procol Harum and N.W.A.

Rush fans may have to backtrack somewhat, especially the ones that claimed, "The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has no credibility until Rush is inducted". Another act who may want to play nice is Randy Newman who jokingly told The Times in 1995 that his absence from the Rock Hall's roster of inductees made it "a Hall of Shame." Now that he's in, however, Newman said, "It's a great honor. I'm very happy about it," and "I'd like to thank the people who have supported me for all these years."
