The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 2013 class will be remembered for its variety.

The eclectic group of rockers Rush and Heart, rappers Public Enemy, songwriter Randy Newman, "Queen of Disco" Donna Summer and bluesman Albert King will be inducted into the hall of fame next April in Los Angeles.

The ceremony will mark the end of a long wait for fans of five of the six acts, who've been eligible for entry for some time. Public Enemy was inducted on its first ballot appearance, swelling the ranks of hip-hop entries to four.

Quincy Jones and Lou Adler will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award given for contributions beyond performance.
