State House News Service reports state reps. Josh Cutler of Duxbury and James Cantwell of Marshsfield today filed legislation to make Aerosmith's "Dream On" the official Rock Song of the Commonwealth, rather than "Roadrunner" by Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers.
The two say "Dream On" is about reaching for your dreams, although it makes no references at all to Massachusetts, unlike "Roadrunner," which is about the joys of driving around routes 128 and 9, with the radio on. "No band is more closely associated with Massachusetts," they claim.
