Map of America's favorite band
2014-02-27 by fromtheinside | 63 Comments

The Echo Nest recently mapped out America's favorite artists by state, and boy should America be proud. The map contains mega-metal acts Hinder, Stone Sour and, unsurprisingly, Phish. Other noteworthy entries include Ciara, J Boog and Fall Out Boy. The data, TIME reports, was gathered through various "reliable" outlets such as MTV and Rdio with the most interesting thing to note being no artist listed twice.

I'm proud to be from Minnesota considering we listen to good music while states surrounding us listen
to crap like Hinder and Stone Sour.

This maps screams bullshit and here's why: Notice how all of the states each have fifty different artists, no state shares the same favorite artist. Besides, a downtempo artist who hasn't even charted in the US taking up the majority of listens in the most populated state in the country? Also, why Rush for Delaware? Why a southern hip-hop artist for Iowa? Why an east coast hip hop artist for Arkansas? Why The Shins for Missouri? Why Florida Georgia Line for Ohio and neither Florida nor fucking Georgia? Also, who the fuck listens to Hinder or David Guetta casually? And of all the fucking places to have put the only pop punk band on here, you had to put it on the most hick-infested state in the country? And how is it possible for Stone Sour to get more plays on a state than Slipknot? Also, half of the artists on this don't even get the slightest of airplay or have never been heard of before. The Head and the Heart? Ciara? The Naked and Famous? Dirty Heads? Eric Church? Kevin Gates? August Alsina? Miguel? The Civil Wars? Future? The Magnetic Zeros? Phish? Ginger Kwan? J Boog? Despite the obvious bullshit, this map did give me quite a laugh with Juicy J and Bruce Springsteen.

Just so everyone knows, the map shows the bands that are relatively more popular in that state compared to other states, not the state's "favorite" band.

Wow, so many people accepting this map as fact. Also, why snarkily call Hinder and Stone Sour "metal"? Is anybody sincerely calling either of those bands metal? And why does it matter? Just enjoy what you enjoy.
