[Joyce] Linehan’s most recent undertaking is also pretty fantastic: a push to make the Modern Lovers’ “Roadrunner” the official rock song of Massachusetts.

Yesterday, State Representative Marty Walsh, Linehan’s friend, filed HD3506: “An Act designating the song ‘Roadrunner’ as the official rock song of the Commonwealth.” The crusade’s Facebook page is currently urging supporters to call their representatives, adding “At some point there will be a public hearing at the State House-probably in April or May, where you can all testify about WHY this should happen.” (The campaign to make Jonathan Richman testify on behalf of “Roadrunner” begins here.) As of this morning, five co-sponsors have signed on to this very important piece of legislation.
