Ohio is the only state to have an official rock song! The McCoys were originally from Dayton, Ohio. The song was about Dorothy Sloop of Steubenville, Ohio. A singer, Sloop sometimes used the stage name Sloopy.
The resolution establishing "Hang on Sloopy" as Ohio's rock song had a number of references to the song's lyrics and to the song's importance to Ohioans. If you have an extra couple of minutes, read the official resolution @ http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/entry.php?rec=1878 - it's unique?!
