Massachusetts May Get an Official Rock Song Anthem
Massachusetts just might get a little bit cooler.
Boston Magazine reports that after being initially proposed in 2013 and then shut down this past January, there was a bill on the Massachusetts State House docket this past week, trying to make "Roadrunner" by the Modern Lovers the official state rock song of Massachusetts.
In the past, "Roadrunner" has been up against "Dream On" by Aerosmith, which was shut down in January 2015 as well.
"Roadrunner" is penned by Massachusetts native Jonathan Richman.
Over the years, Massachusetts has been the subject of many a love song, including "Dirty Water" by The Standells, "Escape (The Pina Colada song)" by Rupert Holmes and "Boston" by Augustana, among many others.
