Did Duane even live in GA for more than a year?
That's fair. I did not look up birth cities. Most of those Motown acts are from elsewhere but got famous here. If I had to I'd replace them with Madonna even though i hate her.
Edit, fuck that; Smokey Robinson
Hey bud, I liked his post so give it a rest.
Harold Jenkins was top-notch.
Steve Clark and Scott weiland died here, if that counts
This is strong
Hm along with Glen Campbell.
Yeah it's sneaky, but it drops off p quick after that. Like, OK Go is probably next up.
Motion City Soundtrack, c'mon!
Waiting for #Washington Huskies to come clean up the place
Petey Pablo (obviously)
can also claim Miley and Usher
Maybe we need criteria for who gets to claim whom. If "most associated with" is the criteria then Tennessee can claim like 90% of country artists. Gregg and Duane grew up in Florida and formed the band there, then moved to Georgia during their formative years. Maybe both can claim them?
Jerry Lee Lewis
Mississippi gets to claim Elvis, IMO
Tennessee never claims Memphis unless it is music or BBQ
I realize it's a slippery slope. Just never heard anything about allman bros and Florida. Then when I wikied I saw Tennessee and Georgia. So I called it out as a stretch
Who gets Florida Georgia line
If the criteria is musicians associated w/ the state and not just born there, Delaware is now at:
that's about it
Virginia (in alphabetical order) - I went with the 4 most successful as I determined based on perceived popularity, awards, sales, and charting singles along with historical notoriety:
Dave Grohl (spent the vast majority of his formative years in Virginia)
Honorable Mentions in alphabetical order
Clarence Clemons - Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band
Stewart Copeland - The Police
Lamb of God
Jake Lee - Ozzy Osbourne
Dave Matthews/Dave Matthews Band
Old Crow Medicine Show
Scott Traves - Judas Priest
It doesn't drop off as sharply as you'd think. Soul Asylum, The Gear Daddies, Judy Garland, Bobby Vee, Eddie Cochran, Whoopie John Wilfahrt, Wally Pikal.
Any one of them would have been a better choice than The Replacements.
better than ezra
Mississippi's got a deep stable, but I'd go with:
Big Bruh (if i have to pick one member of deuce komradz)
Mr. G Stacka (favorite member of Dirty Boyz)
And for Alabama:
Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section (a.k.a. "The Swampers")
Might put Glen Campbell in over Twitty
The Smashing Pumpkins
Earth, Wind & Fire
Thread is basically ITT we pimp our own state
I don’t even hate Jimmy Buffett but I don’t think the state as a whole needs to claim that Mobile tomfoolery. Isbell has enough clout that I’d say he belongs on the Mt Rushmore.
Lot of people not giving them the credit they deserve
No Last Mr. Bigg? List is shit.
Danny Carey- Drummer for Tool
IDK man you only get 4. Bigg can't see Rich Boy or Gucci.
Deuce had like 6 songs that could hold up vs lots of mainstream rap at the time
Dirty got the nod because "hit da floe" and "rollin vogues" were fire
Trial time alone gets you the nod over those guys
I would probably take Ike out and add Buffett. I like Ike’s music better, but it’s Jimmy Buffett
I give Buffett to Alabama.
Slim pickings for PA:
My adopted state of MA:
I guess Joan Baez
My other adopted state of VT:
The Von Trapps
My last adopted state of NY:
Is this a serious post? Ike Turner was a pioneer.
This was hard
Jerry Lee Lewis
Britney Spears Mahalia Jackson
Jelly Roll Morton
sorry Master P and family
Elvis was born and raised in Mississippi.
