The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has revealed its Class of 2013, which includes progressive rock titans Rush, pioneering rap group Public Enemy, singer-songwriter Randy Newman, and the late, great Disco Queen herself, Donna Summer.

Other inductees include rock band Heart and bluesman Albert King, while legendary producer Quincy Jones and Roxy Theatre owner Lou Adler will both receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performers.

N.W.A., Kraftwerk, Deep Purple, Joan Jet and the Blackhearts, and The Meters were among the final nominees who failed to make the cut.

In order for an artist to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, their first recording must have been released at least 25 years ago.

The induction ceremony is set for Saturday, April 18th, 2013 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and will broadcast on HBO at a later date.
