These Maps Show Which Cities Have The Most Die-Hard Music Fans

Global news site Vocativ has discovered America’s true musical preferences.

The team mined online data — including illegal song downloads, tweets, and BitTorrent traffic — to reveal the most popular genre of music in 100 U.S. cities.

“Our unique Deep Web methodology discovers unseen stories to reveal fascinating insights as to what’s really happening,” Founder of Vocativ Mati Kochavi said in a press release. “In this case, our data scientists were able to discern what music Americans across the country are truly passionate about.”

The index also uncovered the top cities where each of ten musical genres (including pop, country, rock, R&B/hip hop, dance/electronic, Latin, Christian/gospel, blues, jazz, and reggae) have the most die-hard fans.
