shocking results found in this link

Today is proof that this map is complete crap. Absolutely gorgeous day in MHK, but it doesn't qualify because it was a few degrees below 45 very early this morning.

think of how amazing it would be if it was exactly the same except not cold early in the morning

The South did a real nice job overall. Kevin Gates, Juicy J, Civil Wars, Rick Ross.

Also, does Wiz Khalifa have some sort of connection to Arkansas?

Also, California's seems kind of weird.

please note (in case you didn't read the explanation of the map):

To be clear, these aren't necessarily the most-listened to bands in each state, but rather the bands that have unusually high support in each state.

I don't get why Bonobo was California's?

http://static.echonest.com/geo_listening_preferences/?r1=united_states&r1=CA&depth=200

mess with the "Depth". If you select "40", it only looks at California's 40 favorite artists, and of those, Bonobo is #28, but only #85 in the rest of the USA.

I think the color scale is darker in the more extreme cases and lighter when there is only a slightly higher frequency of listens in that state

Emo Dad loves Eric Church.  I tried to steer him to other stuff but it's no use.

Why? Let the poor old man like what he likes. Hasn't he already been through enough?

Fun Eric Church fact-

One of my buddies works for his management team in Nashville, they also manage the Black Keys and some other bands.

MY Gf is big black keys fan so I had him send me a CD signed by them saying "happy birthday" for her bday last year.
