Boston or America for me.  Atlanta Rhythm Section aren't my cup of tea bu they're good.

 

Some good indie/folk groups in the category too.  Calexico for one  I like Phoenix too, but I'm not sure they're named after the city.  Beirut is another from that scene.

I’m not saying they’re the best or anything, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to Goodnight, Texas. Named after the town of Goodnight. 

 

Recently of Coors commercial fame.

I'll take Boston.  The singing is just off the chains.

Stunning songwriting. ...like with Kansas...everything just fits together...the verse, chorus, catchy bridge, whatever. 

I watched a documentary on the Leftoverture album, interviews about how they wrote those songs. It was amazing, and is probably out there in the Googleverse.😉

Out of that list, Chicago. The Terry Kath documentary is special. Heck the documentary on the band is good too. Hendrix loved him some Kath and Joe Walsh.

No votes for Europe or Asia yet.  I was thinking there might be one or two given the poll was anonymous 😛

Asia was a great collaboration of great musicians from different bands, I'm surprised as well. 

Europe will make money forever. I met Joey Tempest on Daytona Beach without his makeup. :stop:

Ok.  I'm quoting a line from a very popular movie.  I'll give you a hint, it was a very dumb movie.

Does Arctic Monkeys count?

I was more geared towards just having the geographical place in the name.  So something like "The Detroit Players" wouldn't count but just "Detroit" would.

I know.  I wanted to make it even dumber than the original exchange from 25 years ago.

Does Soundgarden count since they're named after a sculpture in Seattle?
