Official Rock Song of Ohio! - Hang on Sloopy by The McCoy's

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 @ - it's unique?!
