Rock Hall fixes speakers after they blast music around Cleveland all night

This puts a new meaning to rock 'n' roll all night.

CLEVELAND — A mystery in downtown Cleveland has been solved.

Police say they received several complaints overnight as "rock box" speakers from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were blasting music loudly overnight. It happened at the towering speakers around the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along E. 9th and other locations.

Why was the music playing? The Rock Hall appears to have found the answer, issuing the following statement with a spectacular pun:

"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."
