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.
