Play with this: Gracenote’s Music Maps

Gracenote offers up a flash tool, this Music Map, which allows users to zoom in on geographic regions and examine the locals’ musical tastes.

Where I’m at: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jack Johnson, U2, Metallica. (Despite what the data may here show, I am in Minnesota [2008], NOT the bedroom of my 15-year-old self [well, sans Jack Johnson].)

Compare to top artists for Kazakhstan: Linkin Park, Enigma, Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne.
