  • The rock gods have spoken. The 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees have been announced, and the star-studded list is filled with iconic musical acts from the ‘80s and beyond. Out of the 15 nominees, only five will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

    For some, the mix of musicians makes total sense and conjurs twinges of nostalgia. For others, this year’s contenders are a colossal abomination. A number of people across the web are upset that the band Rush didn’t make the cut. Here’s the Twitterverse has to say.
