Pop diva Madonna, hip-hop band ‘Beastie Boys’, and ‘Queen of Disco’ Donna Summer are among stars who have been nominated for induction into the US ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’.
Also among the contenders are Leonard Cohen, John Mellencamp, Chic, the Dave Clark Five and Afrika Bambaataa.
According to the Billboard magazine, the nominees selected by a committee will be whittled down to a final list of five by more than 600 music experts, who will enter the hall in March.
Musician can be considered for the honour of being inducted into the Cleaveland-based hall only 25 years after their first recording, reports the BBC.
Last year, the honour of being inducted into the hall was conferred on rock band R.E.M., hip-hop star Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Van Halen, the Ronettes and Patti Smith.
The artists included in the hall are featured in the Museum’s Hall of Fame exhibit, which includes a computerised jukebox containing every song of every inductee and a film on three big screens recounting their careers and music.

    CHIC is easily the most influential of all the nominees. They influenced a whole generation of Punk artist: The Clash and Blondie being the most notable. Rock artists wanted a bit of CHIC’s sound so Queen, David Bowie, INXS and The Power Station all used it.

    For rappers CHIC has been the holy grail, arguably no other artist has been so sampled by Hip Hop artists. Todays Dance music and pop music still use the CHIC sound. Madonna got her breakthrough with it (the “Like A Virgin” album).

    And if we are talking their own productions we have Era defining hits like Good Times, Le Freak, I Want Your Love, Everybody Dance, We Are Family, Upside Down, I’m Coming Out, He’s The Greatest Dancer and Spacer. The last five having other artists on lead vocal, but being in all other ways very much a CHIC release.

    For those who still suffers from the anti-Disco germ; If you listen to a CHIC record there is much more Jazz, Samba, Rock, R&B and other stiles, on them than Disco cuts. And many CHIC songs are commentaries on society and history.

In short, CHIC meets all the criteria for getting in, and then some!

    Here are clips of some of CHIC’s more rock sounding songs. They are all written and performed by CHIC. Lead vocal may vary:
