I've heard a few songs lately named after cities, and states, highways, rivers and whatnot, but I was wondering if anyone here knows of a song/s named after their city or state, etc?

For myself, I only know of this one, which was done when he used to live here.

I'm interested to hear others
Go!

well i was born in Monterrey, but i've never heard a song mention that place. for Houston, however, there are several. the first that comes to mind is "Heaven, Hell, or Houston" by ZZ Top.
All the way from Palm Springs, just out of detox.

There's one about the music festival where Jimi did the guitar sacrifice thing.

Unless you're talking about Monterey in Switzerland, in which case, Smoke on the God Damn Water.

I can't think of any good songs about Florida, but that's probably due to the fact that Florida sucks.

I'm at school, youtube is blocked.

It's "Florida" by Modest Mouse. One of their few newer (if you can call a 4 year old song new) songs that I really like. Also, proxys.

Is it a song about how much Florida sucks? Because I might like it a lot then.

Seriously, everybody, Florida blows chunks. Stay far away.
