Aerosmith Classic May Become Official State Song
Mass. officials are disagreeing over whether Aerosmith's legendary single "Dream On" or The Modern Lovers' classic Boston-based single "Roadrunner" should earn the coveted title. Not long after Rep. Marty Walsh proposed a bill to give the nod to "Roadrunner," reps Josh Cutler of Duxbury and Jim Cantwell of Marshfield have filed a proposal of their own that would award the title to "Dream On."
Cantwell joined Karlson & McKenzie live Tuesday morning to tell the guys about the legislation and why he chose Aerosmith. An avid ZLX listener, he said he came up with the idea for the new bill from a K&M listener who called him and made the suggestion.
He also said he would like K&M to come in and testify to the House on why they want "Dream On" as the state rock song, along with anyone else with strong-enough arguments.
"This would be a fun debate about music that you can have listeners weighing in on, what they think the best song should be," he said about the process. Read more and see the fan debate here.
