CLEVELAND, Ohio (CNN/Money) - Ohio band Vitallus gained a few adherents for its rock song, "I Never Get Stuck," as it won the top prize of a duct tape contest.

The song, written about duct tape, earned the band $2,500 cash in the Rock About the Roll Contest sponsored by Duck brand duct tape. The Duck brand is made by Henkel (3EFHEN: Research, Estimates).

Vitallus band members beat out 163 entries from 33 states and Canada for their win that apparently stuck with judges.
