James Cantwell, (D-Marshfield), who filed competing legislation to make Aerosmith’s “Dream On” the official Mass. rock tune. “Like with any legislation, a compromise is possible, one that pays homage to a great rock ’n’ roll song like ‘Roadrunner’ and also recognizes Aerosmith as one of the greatest rock bands in music history.”
