Hang on Sloopy

The Ohio House of Representatives, having improved that state as far as it can be improved, recently passed a motion making "Hang on Sloopy" as the official state rock song.  "Hang on Sloopy" was recorded by the McCoys while they were still in high school.  It was their biggest hit.  It later got adopted by the Ohio State band.


  1. Ah the wayback machine. I remember this version by the McCoys. My wife remembers the original version by The Vibrations.
    And back in 1964 my hair was almost that long but not quite.

  2. I could have gone for the lead singer back when I was in high school, except I wasn't born yet.
