N.W.A. find themselves in a familiar spot as they were in last year, with the nominations announced for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Last year N.W.A was up for nomination, but in the end didn't make the cut, and this year they've returned as a nominee once more.

Along with N.W.A, LL Cool J has been nominated. Other notable rock bands among this year's 16 nominations include Nirvana, The Zombies, Deep Purple and Peter Gabriel.

The 29th annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place in April in New York, and will be broadcast on HBO.
