Hip-hop icons LL Cool J and N.W.A. are among the list of artists nominated to be inducted into the 2014 class of the Rock and Roll of Fame.

The hall of fame announced Wednesday (Oct. 16) its annual list of nominees, among them Chic, Hall and Oats, Peter Gabriel, Nirvana, KISS and many others.

This is the second time LL Cool J and N.W.A. have been nominated for inclusion into the Rock Hall after being denied last year.

If they do get selected, they will follow behind previous Rock Hall inductees Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five, Run-DMC, Beastie Boys and Public Enemy.

Elsewhere, this is Chic’s eighth time to be up for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 2003, which is ridiculous in our humble opinion.

Hopefully, the iconic disco group will get its just due now that guitarist Nile Rodgers is garnering some attention for his collaboration with Daft Punk on ‘Get Lucky.’

The 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held in New York in April 2014 with the show airing on HBO in May.

Fans can cast their vote on who should be inducted via the Rock Hall’s website. The voting process runs from Oct. 16 through Dec. 10. The top five artists selected by the public will be chosen to be enshrined in 2014.

Not to sway any votes here, but let’s get LL Cool J and N.W.A. into the Rock Hall. Their induction is long over due.
