Music Metropoles


Recommended Posts

What cities or towns have brought us an above average number of above average bands? :)

I think cities like London or New York should be a given simply because of the sheer number of people living - and thus bands forming - there ;)

first thought:

Athens, Georgia:



of Montreal

Indigo Girls

Widespread Panic

Danger Mouse

Neutral Milk Hotel

Now It's Overhead

(and wikipedia lists a few others that I don't know :D )

what are other Music Metropoles? :)

<1991st post! Ten, Nevermind, BloodSugarSexMagik, Woodface, Use Your Illusion I & II, Metallica, Achtung Baby, Baby Animals... what a year. :grin:

Birmingham was arguably the birthplace of hard rock and metal music - Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest were all formed in Birmingham. Also, The Move, ELO formed there, and Steve Winwood, Nick Mason and Christine McVie were born there.
