I (almost) got the modern sounds of modern Massachusetts

Efforts by to make "Roadrunner" the official rock song of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have failed in the legislature. Certainly, there are bigger problems facing the citizenry than choosing an official rock song, but one State Senator vows to go faster miles an hour again in January. Radio on!

UPDATE (7 Jan 15): A last-minute push in the legislature has finally failed. Bill H 3573, which if passsed would have enshrined Roadrunner’s status, had to pass by January 6, 2015, before a new Massachusetts state legislature was sworn in. Supporters say there are no plans to resurrect it in the next session of the state legislature.
