Rockers Bachman-Turner Overdrive are to be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

The veteran band will be immortalized in Canadian music history by officials at the country’s Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.

The Winnipeg-based group was formed by Randy Bachman, who recruited his brother Robin Bachman and Fred Turner in 1973.

Known for hit songs such as “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” and “Takin’ Care of Business,” the band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide.

Bachman-Turner Overdrive has won seven Juno Awards, Canada’s top music prize, including group of the year in 1975 and 1976.

They will be inducted during the 2014 Juno Awards on March 30.
