Top 25 Musical Cities, According To Rateyourmusic.com

According to Rateyourmusic.com, these are the cities from which the music I listen to comes from, ordered by number of bands/artists. There are a few issues with the music-mapping system (as you will see), but overall, it's still pretty interesting.
25Mesa Verde
The Old Road


Glasgow, GB - 6 (also tied with 6: Stockholm, Oakland, Sacremento, Manhattan, Queens, Amherst (Massachusetts) )
24Stars of the Lid
And Their Refinement Of The Decline


Austin, Texas - 7
23The Thermals
The Body, The Blood, The Machine


Portland, Oregon - 7
22Polica
Give You The Ghost


Minneapolis, Minnesota - 7
21Hop Along
Get Disowned


Baltimore, Maryland - 7
20Delta Spirit
History From Below


San Diego, California - 7
19Parades
Foreign Tapes


Sydney, Australia - 7
18Jawbox
For Your Own Special Sweetheart


Washington DC - 8
17Dirty Three
Toward The Low Sun


Melbourne, Australia - 8
16Shugo Tokumaru
In Focus?


Tokyo, Japan - 9
15Vales
Clarity


Cornwall, GB - 9, a few things wrong with this one. First of all, Cornwall is an entire region of England containing places like Newquay, Truro, Penzance, etc. Secondly, pretty sure the only Cornish band I've ever heard is Vales, and everyone else listed here is either from Bristol (still Southwest, but not near Cornwall really), or somewhere else completely. Seems to be an RYM glitch.
14The War on Drugs
Slave Ambient


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - 10
13Danny Brown
XXX


Detroit, Michigan - 10
12Deerhunter
Halcyon Digest


Atlanta, Georgia - 11 (I would have picked Big Boi or Killer Mike for this one but acording to RYM, Big Boi is from Savannah (even though Outkast is listed as Atlanta, makes sense I guess) and Killer Mike is from some suburb).
11Oneohtrix Point Never
Replica


Boston, Massachusetts - 13
10Loma Prieta
I.V.


San Francisco, California - 13
9Kishi Bashi
151a


Seattle, Washington - 14 (we make some good hipster music up here in the Northwest)
8Japandroids
Celebration Rock


Vancouver, BC, Canada - 14 (hometown love, this number will only increase as I continue to get into local bands)
7Godspeed You! Black Emperor
'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!


Montreal, Quebec, Canada - 15 (surprisingly low, I figured I listened to enough Canadian indie music that this would be one of the front-runners, maybe not!)
6El-P
Cancer 4 Cure


Brooklyn, New York - 19
5Cap'n Jazz
Shmap'n Shmazz


Chicago, Illinois - 19
4Basia Bulat
Heart of My Own


Toronto, Ontario, Canada - 19 (very surprised Montreal lost out to Toronto for top Canadian city)
3Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Mosquito


New York, New York - 38, but this would have been number 1 if RYM organized it better. There were catogories for all the boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Harlem etc.) but also a one non-specific one for all of NYC. If this were organized properly, NYC would be #1.
2Warpaint
The Fool


Los Angeles, California - 46 (not including Compton, Glendale etc.)
1Burial
Kindred


Still the centre of the rock music universe: City of London, GB - 48 (many more in the Great London area, including Hammersmith, Brixton, Deptford, Wembley, etc.)
