Are These Really The BEST Bands From Texas, Oklahoma & Other States?!

The writers at Thrillist.com put together a list of the supposed best band from every state in the United States.

There are likely a lot of bands you haven’t heard of on this list. And, personally, I think the picks for both Texas & Oklahoma are wrong (but, I’m biased).

Anyway, here are the more recognizable names:

Alaska:  Portugal, The Man

California:  The Beach Boys

Connecticut:  MGMT

Delaware:  George Thorogood and the Destroyers

Florida:  Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Georgia:  OutKast

Idaho:  Built to Spill

Illinois:  Earth, Wind & Fire

Indiana:  The Jackson 5

Iowa:  The Everly Brothers

Kansas:  Kansas (Duh.)

Kentucky:  My Morning Jacket

Massachusetts:  The Pixies

Michigan:  The Temptations

Minnesota:  Prince and the Revolution

Mississippi:  Rae Sremmurd

Nevada:  The Killers

New Jersey:  Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

New Mexico:  The Shins

Ohio:  The Isley Brothers

Oklahoma:  The Gap Band (Come on, the names Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Toby Keith, Kings of Leon and The All-American Rejects don’t ring a bell?)

Pennsylvania:  The Roots

Rhode Island:  Talking Heads

South Carolina:  The Marshall Tucker Band

Texas:  Destiny’s Child (Seriously? What about freakin’ ZZ TOP or Pantera or Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble…just to name a few better options, in my opinion!)

Utah:  The Osmonds

Virginia:  The Neptunes

Washington:  Sleater Kinney

West Virginia:  Asleep at the Wheel

Wisconsin:  Garbage
