I know it’s a somewhat unwieldy thread title, but that’s as good as I can do now.
Some bands, such as Boston, make it pretty obvious that they’re from, well, Boston, such as in “Rock and Roll Band”. Other bands, such as Queensryche, have songs such as “Jet City Woman” and “One More Rainy Night” that don’t outright mention Seattle, but anyone who knows anything about Seattle knows that Boeing has a strong presence there, and it rains a lot there, too. In Everclear’s “I Will Buy You a New Life”, they make reference to buying a new house “way up in the West Hills”, which is part of the Portland, Oregon metroplex.
What I am looking for are other examples of subtle and semi-subtle references to a band’s locale such as the last two that I mentioned. I imagine this sort of thing probably occurs in country music more than rock music, but I don’t listen to country and I wouldn’t be familiar with any such songs people might list here in the country genre, so I am more interested in rock music examples.
