Top 10 Bands Named for Places

I recently found the following list of the top ten bands named for a location from the folks at

10. America
9. Asia
8. Berlin
7. Nazareth
6. Styx
5. Trans-Siberian Orchestra
4. Kansas
3. Boston
2. Europe
1. Chicago

One of the first topics I posted on this site was bands that have a city, state or country as part of the name. When I wrote this, I used HaloScan for comments, so I do not have the responses anymore. Anyway, I now present my own top 10 list:

10. Hannah Montana (You can laugh at this, but Hannah Montana tickets are the hottest in town)
9. Asia
8. Europe (The Final Countdown is not enough for me to make Europe higher on this list)
7. Berlin
6. L.A. Guns / Hollywood Rose (precursor of Guns ‘N Roses; GNR would be at or near the top)
5. America
4. Kansas
3. Boston
2. Alabama
1. Chicago

Honorable mentions: Frankie Goes to Hollywood, New York Dolls and Bay City Rollers

I should probably include more rationale for my picks, but I’ll wait to see everyone else's comments before defending my selections.

Never seen Trans Siberian Orchestra on concert, I was not going to see it, Trans Siberian Orchestra tickets got sky rocked thanks to stupid brokers. But even if I had seen it, I wouldn't buy it. I'd rather wait and see it on DVD. Well suprise I changed my mind and I got 2 tix for the Trans Siberian Orchestra show I was looking for tickets thanks god there sites like Ticketwood which work as comparators here is the site Trans Siberian Orchestra Tickets So any body going to the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert ??

Apparently, I have created the ultimate list of the top 10 bands named for places. There have been no disagreements, so I guess I am right (as always). :)
