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!

Britney Spears' Blackout album finally gets some recognition!!

The critically-acclaimed album from 2007, which features UH-MAZING pop songs like Piece of Me, Gimme More, Heaven on Earth, and Ooh Ooh Baby, was unfortunately overshadowed by Brit Brit's personal life (aka the years we don't like to speak about)….

UNTIL NOW!

The album has officially been added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, making this is a first for our little Brit Brit superstar.

The album was once

Guns N’ Roses Rock And Roll Without Axl Rose

Filed under: Music MinuteAwardzParty Poppin'

Axl who?

The original lineup of Guns N’ Roses, sans Axl Rose, put on a hell of a show for their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this past Saturday.

Rose had recently published a now infamous letter where — long story short — he rejected his invitation to play the concert with his old band.

Despite enormous pressure, Slash and Co. not only played, but ROCKED the concert. The crowd was enamored and went from jeering Axl Rose's name to cheering for his replacement, Myles Kennedy, who absolutely killed it!

Ch-ch-check out their AWESOME performance of Sweet Child O' Mine (above)!

Axl Rose Wants Hall Of Fame Induction Retracted!!

Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity Feuds

And he will not be attending the induction ceremony that was supposed to go down Saturday, April 14.

After many tumultuous years riddled with inner band conflicts, we were so excited to hear that Axl Rose and most of the original band members of Guns N’ Roses would reunite at their immortalization induction ceremony at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Psyche!

Axl just released an epic tale of all the reasons why he WON’T be there, and why he thinks his induction should be reneged.

It is QUITE the illuminating read!

Check out the lengthy letter …AFTER THE JUMP!

Although Journey has yet to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ex-lead singer Steve Perry doesn't seem to miffed by what many would consider to be a huge snub, and explains:
