Well this is interesting. It’s fascinating that Washington’s favourite band right now is The Head and the Heart (from Seattle) and Rhode Island’s favourite band is Nirvana (from Olympia/Seattle).
Also amusing: Vermont and New Hampshire loving up some Grateful Dead and Phish. Sounds like a grand place to live.
There’s some further insights on the original blog post on Music Machinery, for example Tennessee tends to listen to “southern rappers, country, and folk artists” while New England tends to listen to “jam bands, indie and classic rock”.
