[NEWS] LL Cool J, Beastie Boys & Donna Summer Are Nominees For The 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees have been announced and Hip-Hop and Disco are in the building.

LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys have been selected as nominees to be considered for possible induction.

Ms. "Love to Love You Baby", Donna Summer, has also been nominated for induction. If you are not familiar with Donna Summer (how could you not be) she is the voice behind "Last Dance" and her song "Love to Love You Baby" was sampled for Beyonce's "Naughty Girl" off of her album Dangerously In Love.

It's interesting that there are two acts nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Before Run DMC were inducted in 2009, only one other rap act, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, were inducted and that was in 2007. Looks like we should get used to seeing rap acts being nominated now that Hip-Hop is a pretty big deal.

Can't wait to see who gets nominated!

Inductees will be announced in December and the ceremony will be held next March.

Here is the complete list of nominees:

Alice Cooper
Beastie Boys
Bon Jovi
Neil Diamond
Dr. John
J. Geils Band
LL Cool J
Darlene Love
Laura Nyro
Donna Summer
Joe Tex
Tom Waits
Chuck Willis
