20 Greatest Bands with Regional or Geographical Names

So the other day, Web Watch was talking with our friends about BANDS WITH REGIONAL NAMES.

So we decided to come up with the ULTIMATE REGIONAL BAND NAME LIST.

The Best Of Chicago
The Best Of Chicago

If there’s a notable* band that everyone should already know the name of (as opposed to a local band that only you and your friend Pete happen to know — c’mon, we need some Billboard charting, Jeopardy trivia answer quality here), then feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments below.  All the band name needs is a reference to a city, state, geographic region, or country that we’ve all heard of.

And now, in no particular order, the 20 GREATEST BANDS WITH REGIONAL/GEOGRAPHIC NAMES:

  • Chicago
  • New York Dolls
  • Alabama
  • Florida Georgia Line
  • Alabama Shakes
  • Georgia Satellites
  • Berlin
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky Headhunters
  • America
  • Asia
  • Boston
  • Manhattan Transfer
  • Atlanta Rythym Section
  • Europe
  • Leningrad Cowboys (hey, they were on the MTV Video Music Awards one year, so that’s kinda famous)
  • Miami Sound Machine
  • Ohio Players
  • Nashville Pussy

And of course… FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE.
