CLEVELAND — In the middle of the night, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame box speakers located at Rockwell, St. Clair Avenue and Lakeside Avenue were playing nonstop music while everyone was presumably asleep. The tragedy here is no one was seen attending the impromptu dance party.

The speakers were not playing the same songs at the same time, according to a News 5 overnight photographer.

In a statement, the Rock Hall said they have identified and fixed the issue, so the speaker boxes will now operate strictly during the day going forward:

"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.”
