    (CNN) -- The nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's class of 2013 have been announced, and for the first time ever fans will get a say in who will be inducted.

    First-time nominees Rush, Deep Purple, N.W.A., Public Enemy, Albert King, The Marvelettes and Procol Harum join previously nominated acts Chic, Heart, Donna Summer, Kraftwerk, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Randy Newman, Paul Butterfield Blues Band and The Meters.

    Watch a video of this year's nominees

    To be eligible for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination, artists must have released their work at least 25 years prior to appearing on the ballot. That means this year's hopefuls released their first single in 1987 or earlier. Blues guitarist Albert King has been eligible since 1987, while 2013 marks the first year the seminal hip-hop acts N.W.A. and Public Enemy are eligible.

    From today through December 5, fans can vote at several sites including Rockhall.com to boost their favorite artists' chances of making the cut. The top five acts selected by those votes will become part of a special "fans' ballot" that will be counted alongside the international voting body of more than 600 artists, historians and industry members.

    They said on the radio that KISS had never been nominated. Same with Stevie Ray Vaughan. The fix is in.

    I'll go with Deep Purple, Rush, Albert King (can't believe he's not in already), Procol Harum, Heart (not a fan, but they deserve it), and The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Butterfield played the harmonica so hard that he kept a spittoon on stage to turn around and spit blood in.

    I don't think NWA gets in until Dre and Cube are eligible as solo artists.

    Isnt the RRHOF ran by the same people that run Rolling Stone mag? If so that would explain why they are a joke.

    MOST of the legendary/greats are already in so they have resorted to acts that are middle tier or have nothing to do with R&R.

    I can see it now.....
    The RRHOF inductees for 2025 are...
    Mumford and Sons
    Black Keys
    Nickleback
    Soulja Boy
    Nicki Minaj

    What a joke............:laugh2:

    I'm 25 & I think today's music sucks!

    Thank goodness my father introduced me to some of the classic bands.

    I envy people that grew up when music was really great!

    Rock and Roll HOF my ***. With what they let in I don't know why actual Rock and Roll bands would want to be in there.

    I'm still stuck in the 80s and 90s music with some pinches of 70s. 60s if you include Jimi.

    They need to change the name to the Music Hall of Fame.
