50. Vermont
49. Colorado


May the taint of the "jam band" forever keep these two states pulling up the rear. There is no apology or redress great enough to ever overcome the utter disgrace of Phish and The String Cheese Incident. May God have mercy on your souls.

There's no way Michigan should not be in the top 3, if not #1.

The list is based on the author's home state, states where former girlfriends are from, favorite bands of girls he hopes to bang, sports teams, regional foods, average precipitation, and density of Starbucks locations averaged against hipsters/ square mile.

mitchcumpstein: Summoner101: Minnesota...?

I can only think of Bob Dylan and Prince


Husker Du, The Replacements, The Jayhawks...

Not saying they should be #1, but they're not bad.

Thought Michigan would be higher on Motown alone (Aretha, Stevie Wonder, Temptations, Jackson 5 etc). Plus:

Madonna
The Stooges
John Lee Hooker
MC5
Started the whole genre of Techno
Mitch Ryder
Bob Seger
Alice Cooper
Nugent
Kid Rock
The Romantics
Grand Funk Railroad
Sponge
White Stripes
Aaliyah
The Winans
Rare Earth
Del Shannon
Grand Funk Railroad
Brendan Benson
A ton of Hip Hop including Eminem
Lots of Jazz musicians
Longtime Disney Composer Paul Smith

Pretty impressive.

If Mississippi isn't #1, then it's a shiat list

*click*

yep, it's a shiat list. Why the hell is Minnesota #1? Prince & Bob Dylan did far less for American music than anybody from Mississippi, and that doesn't even count FAMOUS blues musicians.

This would have been better if there had been any attempt whatsoever to explain why.

Scratch that. This would have been anything other than a total waste of my day if there had been any attempt to explain why.

The choice of putting Minnesota #1 was based solely on Tay Zonday.
