Rush among 15 nominated for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Canadian rock fans take heart, Geddy Lee’s signature wail may find its place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after Rush was one of 15 artists nominated for a coveted spot for 2013.

While all previous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees have been decided upon by a panel of music experts including historians, artists and other industry insiders, Rolling Stone reports that this will be the first year that the public will also be allowed to vote online, at either the Rolling Stone or Rock and Roll Hall of Fame websites.

So step up Canadians, and ensure the Toronto rockers get their due. Because with vocals (and hair) like this, how can anyone argue against Rush getting a spot in the hallowed halls?

Of course, there are some other nominees as well. The diverse group includes Deep Purple, Heart, Kraftwerk and N.W.A., all of which are featured in a handy Rock and Roll Hall of Fame music montage.
