\Rush - a band whose fans were once called the Trekkies of rock by Rolling Stone - had been snubbed for years from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but finally, the Canadian progressive-rock trio were welcomed in the 2013 induction along with Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Donna Summer, Heart and Albert King. Deep Purple were also nominated, but despite being the public's second pick in the Rock Hall fans’ ballot, the English rock set were not inducted by the committee to the surprise and disagreement of many. Likewise, KISS were snubbed for the umpteenth year in row - a fact that consistently rankles the group's lead singer, Gene Simmons: 'We'll just buy it and fire everybody,' he's previously told Rolling Stone. On that note, lest Gene Simmons becomes the Cleveland museum's curator, our 2013 wishlist is that KISS and Deep Purple finally receive recognition in the Hall.
