Cleveland Rocks?

The song "Cleveland Rocks" by Ian Hunter from his 1979 album is often seen as Cleveland's anthem. The song was often used as the victory song for Cleveland's sports teams and was even played by radio station WMMS every Friday night for a time. But, it was originally written under the title "England Rocks" on a single in the United Kingdom two years before the Cleveland version.

Hunter says on his web site the inspiration goes back to the old days when people used to make fun of Cleveland and he felt the same about another city in England and wanted to show it some love. Now he says "Cleveland Rocks" is truly Cleveland's song.

In 1977, the song was also covered by The Presidents of the United States of America as the opening theme of The Drew Carey Show.
