either contact Apple (phone, or a local Apple store) and if you have proof of ownership they will help...

If per chance you have synced/backed up the ipod to a computer... then you may be able to recover access via that computer.

✔ Best Answer
IF you have done a back up you could consider: although loss of data might occur.

You should be able to sync it with your computer. Do that first so all your data is backed up in iTunes. If you're using iCloud, you might want to switch it over to your computer for now just to be sure your information is safe.
Put your iPhone into DFU mode. To do this, reboot your iPhone by holding down the power and home buttons simultaneously for about 10 seconds. When you see the Apple logo, let go of the power button but continue holding down the home button. Soon you will see an image displaying a USB cable, the iTunes icon, and a message that says "Connect to iTunes."
Assuming you still have your iPhone connected to your computer with iTunes open, you'll also see a message telling you iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode and needs to restore. Now you can click the Restore button in iTunes and then wait for iOS to download and install on your iPhone.
Sync your iPhone with iTunes to restore all your data and you'll have it back to normal with no password!
