Today the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland announced their 2013 class of inductees. Public Enemy, Donna Summer, Heart, Albert King, Randy Newman, and longtime jilted proggers Rush have all made the cut.
The star-studded ceremony is set for April 18 in Los Angeles.

This a coup for Rush fans, who have been shut-out for way too long. Sadly, Kraftwerk and N.W.A didn't go in this year, but there is always next year and the ones after that.
Disco mama Summer passed away earlier this year at the age of 63, making her induction a touch bittersweet.
Save for Summer and departed blues legend Albert King, all of 2013's inductees are still touring and recording at a regular clip. Newman turned in a stellar performance just last year at ACL too.
