Prog legends Yes have revealed their reaction to once again being nominated for induction into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Critics have long used Yes and an example of deserving bands that have been snubbed by the organization in favor of non-rock artists.

This year marks the third time that the iconic group has been nominated. Drummer Alan White released the following comments on Tuesday after the class of 2017 was announced:

"It is a distinguished honor to again receive a nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Yes has a history of being pioneers in exploring new musical territory, 48 years later the band is still continuing this quest, who knew? Thank you for the consideration of this esteemed award."

According to the Yes camp, the Rock Hall ballot for the group includes White guitarist Steve Howe, late bassist Chris Squire and former members Jon Anderson (vocals), Bill Bruford (drums), Tony Kaye (keyboards), Rick Wakeman (keyboards) and Trevor Rabin (guitar).
