According to Rolling Stone, the veteran Hip Hop group joins Heart, Randy Newman, Rush, Albert King and Donna Summer in the class of 2013. Additionally, Lou Adler and Quincy Jones will both receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performers.

With their induction, Public Enemy becomes the fourth Hip Hop act to be included in the Hall of Fame. Previously, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and Run-DMC were honored with inductions.
