For those that missed the breaking news yesterday, long snubbed rock bands Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, Yes and Chicago are among the artists that have been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame's induction class of 2016.

Other rock related nominees for the class of 2016 include The Cars, Los Lobos, Steve Miller, Nine Inch Nails, The Smiths along with non-rock artists Chaka Khan (funk/disco), Chic (disco), Janet Jackson (pop/R&B), The J.B.'s (James Brown's band), N.W.A. (rap), and the Spinners (R&B).

Fans will be allowed to vote for their selection and the winner of the popular vote will get ONE ballot among the 700-odd voting members, according to the Los Angeles Times. Other reports place the total ballot number at 800.

The organization will reveal the 2016 inductees in December, who will then be inducted during a black tie event in New York City next April.
