Do You Have a Suggestion for an Official State of Michigan Rock Song?
Ohio's official state rock song is the 1965 McCoys’ hit HANG ON SLOOPY.
Okay – so what should be Michigan’s Official Rock ‘n Roll Song?
And by who?
Take a look at the photo gallery above at a dozen Michigan artists who are worthy of having one of their tunes become Michigan's Official Rock Song.
Why should Ohio be recognized and not Michigan?
Here are ten song candidates – ALL by Michigan artists:
ROCK & ROLL NEVER FORGETS – Bob Seger
JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE MIND – Amboy Dukes
I CAN’T HELP MYSELF – Four Tops
MONY MONY – Tommy James & The Shondells
UPTIGHT – Stevie Wonder
96 TEARS – Question Mark & The Mysterians
DEVIL WITH A BLUE DRESS ON – Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels
WE’RE AN AMERICAN BAND – Grand Funk
EIGHTEEN – Alice Cooper
DANCING IN THE STREET – Martha & The Vandellas
Ya got any other suggestions?
If Ohio can get a bill passed, Michigan sure-as-shootin' can!
That's one of the reasons why we have a congressman, isn't it?
