What the hell!? Why does the spawn of Billy Ray Cyrus get to collaborate with such a talented band? It’s moments like this when I realize that life truly isn’t fair. I think it would have been funny in an ironic way had they sang one of her songs instead. I can also almost guarantee that 95% of the audience members who are fans of Miley have never heard the song, let alone the band.
The Echo Nest’s Paul Lamere has put together data showing each state in the United State’s favorite band. You can check out all the data here and a brief explanation of how below after the jump.
For this study, I sampled the listening preferences of about a quarter million listeners that have a zip code associated with their account. update: Listener data is drawn from a variety of music streaming services that are powered by The Echo Nest. I aggregated these listeners into regions (state, regional and all-US). To compare regions I look at the top-N most popular artists based upon listener plays in each region and look for artists that have a substantial change in rank between the two regions. These artists are the artists that define the taste for the region.
No thanks Haim, I think I’ll pass.
I feel lost without this site… Please come back up trackers!!!
