One Two of these artists are not like the others

brits comprise 50% of the list... which 5 are they? AC/DC aren't british if youre counting them... 

The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, J.K. Rowling, and Eric Clapton are/were English.

AC/DC is an Aussie act. 

Dood, they also have Pink Floyd as one of the top acts in Iran!!
And Afghanistan is all about The Red Hot Chilli Peppers?
I am not so sure.....the list for maine seems like its pretty accurate, but i am a bit unsure for some other stuff. 

I'm going to go ahead and guess that the data is from major labels, not independant or indie Iranian music. I doubt there are any big labels in Iran that are reporting to Gracenote.

So, sure.. it isn't necessarily a very good indicator of true listening habits. Nevertheless, it is interesting to see what sells for the big con-gloms (hmm, I like that. I may start using the term con-glom more often).

The take away here is that the big bread winners are still a very small group of tried-and-true acts like the Beatles. 
This is a list of the top 10 artists for my state of Maine, according to Gracenote's very nifty Map:
  • The Beatles
  • Pink Floyd
  • Led Zeppelin
  • Grateful Dead
  • J. K. Rowling
  • Bruce Springsteen
  • Eric Clapton
  • Bob Dylan
  • Carrie Underwood
  • AC/DC
Statistics of note: Brits comprise 50% of the list, and the only two females on the list are also the only two that started their careers after the Berlin wall came down.
