So the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a big decision to make: what should be the state song for the Bay State?
Aerosmith supporters call it a no-brainer; the boys are, after all, Boston personified. But there are also fans of Modern Lovers and their "Road Runner" as a better representation of all Massachusetts has to offer.
Here's what we've got in Ohio:
Me? I'm thinking we need to revisit Ohio's state song. "Beautiful Ohio" may be nice when the best damn band in the land performs it at Ohio Stadium when the Buckeyes play, but with so many other, fresher-than-1913 songs now available from home-grown talent in the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame maybe the General Assembly should start doing some thinking.
Chrissie Hynde, Michael Stanley, Mott the Hoople's "Cleveland Rocks" (OK, they aren't from Ohio) or anything Alex Bevan comes up with. "Skinny Little Boy From Cleveland, Ohio" sure fits the bill.
