Soon residents can rock out with local musicians as they wait on the line.

Being on hold with local government is the worst. The City of Boston would kindly like to make this experience less awful for its residents through its choice of hold music, showcasing homegrown Bostonian talent.

At least one Boston resident must have helped create each profanity-free track to qualify for consideration.
