Shh. Quiet. Let me just bask in the serene moment of when our state is remembered for something other than sheep and patchy cell phone service.

According to Dave Bry at The Awl, this is a list of the states that offer the most music that puts our nation on the map. While its unclear how exactly this list was derived, it is safe to not argue about why Minnesota earns the top spot. I mean, after all, Prince lives there. Prince. Seriously. No contest.
