The 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee list is in and there are some powerful names in the running — [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Guns N’ Roses[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Red Hot Chili Peppers[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Cure[/lastfm] just to name a few.

According to rollingstone.com, other performers up for Hall status include [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Heart[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Joan Jett[/lastfm], and previous nominees the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beastie Boys[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]War[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Laura Nyro[/lastfm].

To be eligible for this year’s ballot, artists would have had to release their first single or album previous to 1986.

How young does that make you feel?

There is one intriguing plot among those nominated — will Guns N’ Roses put aside their differences and perform with one another on stage at the induction ceremony — IF they are indeed induced.

Other famous feuding bands such as the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Police[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Talking Heads[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Led Zeppelin[/lastfm] put aside their differences to perform at the induction ceremony.

In a 2010 interview with GNR’s former guitarist Slash, the possibility of such a reunion came up. “I have no idea how that’s supposed to go. If Axl, Duff, Izzy and myself start communicating, it could go one way. It we don’t, God knows.”

Those who survive the nomination process will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on April 14, 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio.
