For Rush, all those years living in the limelight will hopefully lead them to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Canadian power trio is just one of several artists who have been nominated for the Rock Hall's class of 2013.

The other nominees include Deep Purple, N.W.A., Public Enemy, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Albert King, Kraftwerk, the Marvelettes, the Meters, Randy Newman, Procol Harum and the late Donna Summer.

To be eligible for inclusion in the Rock Hall's 28th annual ceremony, all nominees must have released their first album or single at least 25 years ago. More than 600 artists, historians and members of the music industry will decide who actually makes the cut, as well as fans, who, for the first time, can officially cast their votes, too.

Winners will be honored on April 18 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
