The Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame has nominated fifteen artists for induction in 2013, including some rather un-‘rock’ choices.

‘Rock n’ roll’ has been a malleable designation for the Hall Of Fame for quite some time, and this group of nominees stretches the definition again, including electronica, hip-hop, folk, doo-wop, soul, funk, blues and disco.

The nominees are as follows (in alphabetical order): The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Deep Purple, Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Albert King, Kraftwerk, The Marvelettes, The Meters, Randy Newman, N.W.A, Procol Harum, Public Enemy, Rush and Donna Summer.

Donna Summer and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have been previously nominated but not inducted.

Five of the fifteen will be chosen from 600 voters, including a public ballot (for the first time ever), where fans can vote at Rolling Stone.

The 28th Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony will take place on April 18 at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre and will be screened later on HBO. Check out the nominations video below.
