The 50 Best (and Worst?)

I am off to the big work gig in the Windy City (link for Dave) and won’t return for what will feel like an eternity, but, in fact, will be only five days. So for your entertainment, I give you the (Boston) Phoenix’s July 4th list of Best Band Ever/Best Solo Artist/Best New Band by state.

Please agree with, argue about, and append.

Taking on such an enterprise is bound to lead to disagreements—I mean really, can you pick Prince or Dylan for Minnesota? An apple and an orange, no? And since you don’t have to, why do it? Cuz it is a fun exercise people! So let’s hear what you think they got right and what they got wrong.

And for an alternative extra credit assignment, I would like to challenge folks to come up with the worst band and worst artist for a state (perhaps yours?)—now that is fun!

Worst band from Oregon is bar none the Sugarbeets. They almost ruined bluegrass for me.
