It’s been 25 years since [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eric B. & Rakim[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beastie Boys[/lastfm] came onto the music scene with their first commercial hit. And that’s long ago enough to give them the qualification to be nominated for the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

Additional nominees include [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Spinners[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rufus with Chaka Khan[/lastfm],[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Red Hot Chili Peppers[/lastfm] and more.

The nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2011 short list have been announced.

Among the list of first-time nominees, Eric B. & Rakim, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Guns N’ Roses[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Heart[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Joan Jett & the Blackhearts[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]the Cure[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Small Faces[/lastfm]/[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Faces[/lastfm], The Spinners, Rufus with Chaka Khan and Freddie King made the cut.

I am really pulling for Eric B. & Rakim to make into the Hall, they are one of my favorite hip hop groups!
