Ah-Mazing!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced it's 2013 class of inductees, and we're pleased as punch by the bands and artists on the list!

Our fave ones to make the cut include Heart, Rush, Public Enemy, and — obvi — Donna Summer!

Heart wrote one of the best chick-rock songs ever with Crazy on You!

Public Enemy's Flavor Flav and Chuck D fought the powers that be for decades!

After being consistently overlooked, Canadian prog-rockers and Ayn Rand enthusiasts Rush finally get the recognition they deserve!

And, of course, the late/great Donna Summer touched all of us so profoundly that we would never ever argue against her inclusion!

Even I Love L.A. singer Randy Newman is joining in on the fun!

We expect much of the talented class to perform at the Nokia Center induction ceremony in April!

    They are not Ayn Rand enthusiasts, they wrote an album (2112) based on the ideas of Objectivism, which was a philosophy created by Ayn Rand.

    Re: Doug – AHH… AYN RAND. While Ayn Rand touted the ideas of 'objectivism', I personally would like to tout the ideas of 'subjectivism' on behalf of the reader of her works, as her works should in fact remain subjective! Ayn Rand published her novel Atlas Shrugged in 1957, under a Parisian publishing house owned by the Rothschild branch of Paris. She was the lover of Phillip de Rothschild at the time the book was published, and many say that she was instructed to write this book at his request as a 'guide' to a future new world order for the elite. Be careful in taking her writings as narrative bliss. I personally would recommend NESTA WEBSTER (Secret Societies and Subversive Movements) or HELENA BLAVATSKY (Isis Unveiled, The Secret Doctrine)….'instead'.

    Good for Donna Summer.

    Personally I found the Ayn Rand books boring as heck. Sorry.

    I am Canadian and if I never hear another Rush song that would be wonderful.
