Modern Lovers' 'Roadrunner' could become official rock song of Massachusetts

One of my favorites

BOSTON (AP) The Modern Lovers' "Roadrunner," an iconic 1970s ode to the joys of driving along Route 128 when it's late at night, was unlike any song of its era.

Now it could become the official rock song of Massachusetts.

3. Going faster miles an hour.

Now New York needs to make "Pablo Picasso" its own official rock song. Because someone needs to.

6. SLATE had a very snarky-shitty article about the contenders for this title.

I'll be honest--I never heard that 'Roadrunner" song before. I suppose it could grow on one.
