    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

    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?

    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.
