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.

So what has Baltimore given the world besides John Waters?

Good: Billie Holiday, Cab Calloway, the Orioles, Crack the Sky, Kix, Beach House, Animal Collective

Bad : Ronnie Dove, the Peppermint Rainbow, Mario

Also people born in Baltimore but who made it somewhere else include: Frank Zappa, Gina Schlock (Go-Gos), Ric Ocasek (the Cars), David Byrne (Talking Heads), and Cass Elliott.

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

Plankton 12-16-2021 09:17 AM

I only remember hearing 'Seether' by them.

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

Frownland 12-16-2021 10:20 AM

Allan Holdsworth and Ravi Shankar died where I live.

Plankton 12-16-2021 10:32 AM

Your home must be a dangerous place.

Trollheart 12-16-2021 11:49 AM

You gotta be tough to live in Frownland!

Plankton 12-16-2021 11:51 AM

They're all sad because of all the death, so they frown.

Hip Hop.

rubber soul 12-17-2021 07:43 AM

Looking at the list on Google, Houston seems even less impressive than Baltimore. I guess it's a cool place if you're into Beyonce or Kenny Rogers. Surprising really because Texas in general has had some amazing musical artists.

Plankton 12-17-2021 07:56 AM

Austin would be the hot spot for music in Texas. SRV, Eric Johnson, Gary Clark Jr, Willie Nelson and a few others.

rubber soul 12-17-2021 07:57 AM

Yeah, Thirteenth Floor Elevators for me.

Plankton 12-17-2021 08:01 AM

Electric Jug Player? Sounds like something I need to hear.

TheBig3 12-17-2021 08:02 AM

Well we're Boston so:

Aerosmith
The Cars
Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Dropkick Murphy
The band Boston
Pixies
Mission to Burma
The Lemonheads
Jude
New Edition
Rob Zombie
Powerman 5000
Big Wreck ('That Song' still depresses me)
The Breeders
Street Dogs
Dresden Dolls
Letters to Cleo

But also we invented America so you're welcome for everything.

Plankton 12-17-2021 08:07 AM

Big Wreck is great. 'Ghosts' and 'Wolves' are really good tunes, but haven't listened to much beyond that.

Marie Monday 12-17-2021 08:30 AM

The Breeders are arguably from Dayton, Ohio though. Or at least the Deal twins are

I'll let them know.

elphenor 12-17-2021 09:35 AM

I find Willie Nelson particularly insufferable

if you can really emphasize that I hate his schtick

The town of Merida, Yucatan, has contributed Aleks Syntek and, king of a romantic ballad style known locally as "trova" music, Armando Manzanero:-

That's the main reason I never could get much into The 13th Floor Elevators.

It just sounds like an annoying audio distraction, mucking up the songs.

That'll teach him to keep his zip done up! :laughing:

rostasi 12-17-2021 12:26 PM

Yeah, I love Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, and other celtic punk bands,
but nobody tops The Pogues. Damn, their live shows were amazing!
