This year hip-hop acts N.W.A. and LL Cool J have been included among the 16 nominees. Other rock bands included are Nirvana, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel, Link Wray, and the Zombies. N.W.A. was nominated last year, but failed to make it on board. Let’s hope the Compton legends will get the accolades they deserve this year.

The 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held in April 2014 in New York. The ceremony will be broadcast on HBO.
