FORT PLAIN, N.Y. -- As you may already know, 'The Simpsons' poked fun at Upstate New York in their Sunday episode.

Fort Plain natives Jocelyn & Chris Arndt, self-proclaimed siblings 'rockers,' posted their own humorous musical response to the episode on YouTube.

An Upstate New York rendition of "New York, New York" was sung by Homer Simpson in this week's episode. This attracted a defensive rhetoric from residents and government officials including Gov. Andrew Cuomo himself.

The Arndt's say they're proud to be Upstate through and through. In the song, they reference Utica greens, halfmoons, Rochester's famous garbage plates, and much more.

Although this song is timely and popular, make sure to check out their latest track "Outta My Head." The band has gotten a lot of positive reviews, and views on their official music video.
