Inductee Robin Zander of Cheap Trick performs at the 31st Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony on Friday, April 8, in New York City. When Cheap Trick cut its first album in 1977, it established a signature sound, the Hall of Fame said. "It has never changed it much. It didn't need to." Theo Wargo/Getty Images
Inductee Steve Miller performs. "Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music -- and, indeed, society -- could be in the years to come," the Rock Hall of Fame said.

Inductee Robert Lamm of Chicago performs. With jazz horns, the Chicago Transit Authority blasted wide-eyed, breezy reality right into it, and in its lyrics took vivid sun-drenched strolls like in "Saturday in the Park." Theo Wargo/Getty Images
