Connecticut is on the verge of having an official state punk song, the two new bills being considered.
The state uses Yankee Doodle as it’s official song but is currently considering both a state punk and a state polka song to add to it.
The punk song is a 1983 track by Punkesta, an informal group of local musicians who recorded Connecticut Fun. It implores the listeners to come out and enjoy punk music in the state and the representative of Connecticut said:
“We can move something like this through the legislative process, and it gives us a chance to step back and giggle a little. I’d love this to be the state punk-rock song. If you can’t step back and have a little fun, then you’re taking yourself too seriously.”
