All you can say is, "really"? I hope that this doesn't enrage any music enthusiasts out there.

This could be the most controversial thing you'll read all day. How on earth was this rock band voted most popular in New York? I blame hackers manipulating the numbers. Who has ever heard of this band and is it worth the hype?

Thrillist, compiled a list of every state's favorite band. That's a bold move and it seems like an almost daunting task since most people can't agree on anything let alone their favorite band.

To be clear, the stipulation was that the band had to be formed in the the state.

Here a few:

Arizona:  Meat Puppets

California:  The Beach Boys

Delaware:  George Thorogood and the Destroyers

Florida:  Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers

Alaska:  Portugal. The Man

Finally, New York's most favorite band is Television. Really?  I'll admit that Television is a good band but are they anyone's favorite?

The only logical explanation I can think of is that that people legitimately meant that they like actual television over music.

Do you agree with New York's favorite band?
