What contribution has your city/state made to music?
Dublin has given the world
Good*: Thin Lizzy, U2, The Script
Bad*: Jedward (sorry), Boyzone (sorry sorry), and I think we have to take responsibility for bloody Riverdance (sorry sorry so sorry).

* Good = bands or artists you don't feel the need to tear out your eyes in regret and remorse and embarrassment over

* Bad = well duh, work it out.

I didn't see Grace Slick on wiki. Wasn't she also from Chicago?

She was born in Highland Park, so I guess they left her out along with quite a few others like Dan Fogelberg.
