WELLESLEY, MASS. (WHDH) – With Georgia rapper, Lil Nas X’s summer smash “Old Town Road” topping the Billboard Hot 100 charts for the 18th week, fans of the tune are hoping to claim a bit of the hype for themselves.
The street sign marking Old Town Road in Wellesley has allegedly been stolen three times since the song gained popularity last spring, according to town officials
For the time being, officials say they will not replace the sign a fourth time for fear it will just be taken again.
They say they are just going to wait for the song’s popularity to fade.
However, they are likely to be waiting for a long time.
