Cleveland’s Rock Hall Wakes Up Neighbours During the Night
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is apologizing to people in Cleveland after playing loud music into the night.
In 2016, a series of speakers placed throughout the city has played music during the day to honor Cleveland’s rock and roll heritage. These so called “rock boxes” are normally silent at night. However, in this instance a malfunction caused the same 10 songs to be played on a continuous loop, roughy between the hours of 1-5am. Songs by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kiss were reportedly part of the playlist. Both bands were recently inducted into the hall of fame.
The playing of the songs led to many complaints, especially from visitors staying in a hotel located close to one of the malfunctioning rock boxes. Angry guests claimed that the ongoing noise kept them from sleeping, while others even resorted to calling the police.
Hopefully this leads to the Hall of Fame being closed down forever due to how big of a joke the whole organization really is.
The Hall of Fame accepted responsibility for the incident, issuing the following statement:
“The Rock Hall’s Rock Boxes wanted to rock and roll all night but they’ll have to party all day instead. Our engineers have established that a ten song list was stuck on repeat and played at standard volume last night. We’ve identified and fixed the issue and the Boxes are back to operating strictly during the day. Our apologies for any inconvenience.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of fame attracts more than half a million visitors a year, but from what I’ve heard it’s not worth visiting
The rock box speakers were initially installed ahead of the 2016 Republican National Convention in a collaboration between the Hall of Fame, Destination Cleveland, LAND studio, and local artist Mark Reigelman.
