Back in October, we asked you who should be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for 2013, and we found that SodaHeads preferred Joan Jett and the Blackhearts above all others that were being considered.

After allowing the public to vote for the very first time the results were announced Tuesday, and while your No. 1 choice didn't make the cut, you might be consoled when you see who did.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2013 inductees are: Rush, Public Enemy, Heart, Randy Newman, Donna Summer and Albert King.

If you're interested in attending the official Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, it will be held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on April 18, 2013. Tickets go on sale on January 25th. Out of all the amazing musicians and groups that made the list, which one do you think deserves it most?

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has officially announced next year's inductees: Rush, Public Enemy, Heart, Randy Newman, Donna Summer and Albert King.

    If Rush wasn't on the list, I'd have to give it to Public Enemy. They're the only 2 here that have contributed anything worthwhile to music (IMO).

    I have been a huge fan of RUSH since I was a little kid I don't really listen to any other rock bands other than RUSH
  • Airwool 2012/12/17 09:39:37
    I believe the RRHF is a joke. Look at the great artists on the outside looking in while some of the bands in the RRHOF aren't even that talented...

    Randy Newman
    He's RANDY NEWMAN. It's Toy Story! Basically the soundtrack of my childhood! He's amazing!

    ...but he's not rock and roll.

    Rush are famous rock n rollers, thus Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.

    Public Enemy made a massive contribution to hip hop but let's keep the two genres well and truely separated!
  • pseudop... Rocknro... 2013/09/18 20:17:47
    That's a fair point, but the Hall has been branching into other genres recently.

    Randy Newman

    Who cares! Does it change anything if they are in it or not?
  • eyeballz 2012/12/16 04:04:56
    My choice didn't make it .
  • Jason 2012/12/15 20:06:56
    Rush or Public Enemy

    They all suck and only two of them are rock n roll,but this song makes me smile so...
  • joeman 2012/12/15 01:18:21
    Why are'nt they in there already???

    Its about time. Congratulations to Niel, Getty and Alex. You guys, right along with Anne and Nancy, have had this coming for decades. I always thought that the idea was to induct those that had outstanding qualities in all aspects of music. Seems the real reason is how much money did you make the record industry. The rest (and usually greatest) have to stand around for years before they are noticed, let alone inducted. It is truly pathetic that everything has become corrupt, and that art, talent and humanity fall well behind money....Just a thought...

    PS...Congratulations to you all. Is truly about time.... Oh yea... We miss ya Jimmy...

    NO RAP EVER IN R & R HALL OF FAME!!!!!!!!!!!

    Which is especially funny if you consider Rush's rapping on Roll the Bones.
  • sundance Colin L 2012/12/13 21:50:47
    True enough.....
  • LeroyRo... Colin L 2012/12/14 22:23:39
    1 song isn't a career.

    I know that, I'm a big Rush fan.

    On this list? Without question Mr. Albert King!
  • 2012/12/13 17:46:59
    Rush & Heart......I can't believe they're not already...R&R; \m/
  • wtxwoman 2012/12/13 16:51:51
    This is the only one of these nominees I have ever heard of, which shows you how much I listen to music. From reading others remarks, I can say I agree that Rap has NO PLACE in R&R.; That is ludicrous!
  • frank 2012/12/13 16:28:43
    Donna Summer
    Donna Summer gets my vote
  • TiffanyBelle 2012/12/13 15:46:18
    Ruch and Heart are my favorites on this list.
    everyone here is deserving of the honor but I like the music that Rush and Heart have created best.

    RIP Donna.
  • gonzo 2012/12/13 15:23:28
    Rush and Heart. Rap is crap and does not belong with rock and roll. It belongs with rap only. I would not rank rap with the great stuff from Motown like the Four Tops, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Supremes, Temptations and lots of others. Rap has nothing in common with those great old songs and artists.

    Who is Albert King? All the above except for Public Enemy deserve the Hall of Fame.
  • gatelime 2012/12/13 14:23:55
  • Coffeenoir 2012/12/13 14:22:13
    It is a travesty that Rush and Heart are not already in, especially considering some of the "artists" that have already been inducted.
  • kevin.m.koop 2012/12/13 14:09:02
    The Rock-n- Roll Hall of fame is such a joke! Who are the morons who make the decision of who gets nominated? Why is KISS not in the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame? Public Enemy is RAP NOT ROCK-N-ROLL! And Donna Summer? WTF! What Rock song is she known for? NONE!

    And as the poll notes Heart is a close second .

    Rush is the only Rock and Roll band on this list . Maybe I don,t understand the question rubbing head  gif
  • Sexuallobster 2012/12/13 07:17:38
    Rush have been around for so long, kicking so much ass, and inspiring so many bands that are already in there.

    Why can Abba get in tthere but a trio that sounds like a 5 man band (at least) can't?

  • LarryStylinson 2012/12/13 02:36:25
    Rush and Heart. So there is this girl named Alyssa Reid and she did a cover of Alone by Heart, and one day 2 of my friends were arguing over who sang the original song. One was like 'Carrie Underwood sang it first' and my other friend was like no 'Alyssa Reid sang it first'. SERIOUSLY HEART SANG IT FIRST. HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW THIS!
  • Rob 2012/12/13 02:35:08
    Don't even care much for the rest. Maybe Randy Newman a little, but was his stuff really rock and roll?
  • T-bone 2012/12/13 02:17:03
    Hey I'm old school. When you say Rock-n-Roll HOF, it should mean R&R.; Not rap, not blues. I live in the R&R; HOF city and it disgusts me that it is being perverted to include music that is not R&R.; Who in the world is nominating these people? The worst offender is RAP, if its music at all. It's more like vulgar poetry recited to some sounds in the back ground. Can any of those guys even sing a note, or carry a tune? I guess the only real R&R; is still on vinyl. Keep nominating real Rock & Rollers and forget the posers.
