The song "Hang On Sloopy" is no longer the state's official rock song, but that could soon change.
In 1985, Rep. Mike Stinziano and state Sen. Gene Watts sponsored a resolution recognizing the song as the official Ohio rock song, according to The Columbus Dispatch.
But the designation was not permanent.
Stinziano's son is now a state representative.
According to the Dispatch, Rep. Michael Sinziano has now introduced legislation to permanently make "Hang On Sloopy" the state rock song.
The McCoys had a hit with the song in 1965.
The Ohio State Marching Band now plays it before the fourth quarter of games with the crowd chanting O-H-I-O during the chorus.
