Metallica Named California's Best-Selling Band Ever
An interesting map of top-selling music acts by US states has recently surfaced, unveiling metal icons Metallica as California's top-selling artist of all time.

Made by a Reddit user and pointed at by Metal Insider, the map compiles data from RIAA's Top 250 list of best-selling artists in the US. Apart from Metallica, it contained a few obvious, as well as less expectable names.

So for example, Bruce Springsteen triumphed in New Jersey, the Prince ruled Minnesota, but it was Kenny G who took the crown in Washington, the home of Seattle grunge scene.

The rest of the map also includes such names as George Thorogood, Dave Matthews Band, Kenny Rogers, Johnny Cash and more. Make sure to check it out below.
