15 on the 15th: Ohio is for Lovers

Home to the Buckeyes and a  notably non-rectangular US state flag. One of a kind, isn’t it?

Black Veil Brides – Wake Up

Andy Black/Biersack/Sixx is Black Veil Brides’ only original member and he is originally from Ohio. I just got to see these guys live last Thursday at The Fillmore here in Denver. They put on one hell of a show.

A Perfect Circle – The Doomed

It was a hard decision deciding which of Maynard James Keenan’s projects to highlight with a video. I love all his work; I grew up with Tool, find comfort in A Perfect Circle, and love to stare at the sky with Pucifer.

John Legend – Love Me Now

His voice is divine.

Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders) – Ill Stand By You

A classic.

The Black Keys – Little Black Submarines

They have such a textured sound, I always assume these guys have been around for forever, but they formed in Akron in 2001. Crazy to think about.

Anthony Mossburg – Whiskey & Wine

Joshua Radin – You’ve Got Growing Up To Do

Nine Inch Nails – Less Than

So while Trent Reznor may be from Pennsylvania, his brain child NIN was formed in Ohio.

Kate Voegele – Wish You Were

Of One Tree Hill fame. C’mon, it was a good show! Starts 30 seconds in!

Avant – Lie About Us

The premise of this song is terrible: they’re having a torrid affair and yet, this is my favorite of his. Oops.

Tracy Chapman – Give Me One Reason

Everyone should know Tracy Chapman.

Twenty One Pilots – Heavydirtysoul

….Can you save my heavy dirty soul?….

Dead Poetic – New Medicines

These Dayton gents have been on hiatus since 2007. I wish they would figure it out and get back into the studio.

Beartooth – In Between

Now I know when a lot of people hear a metal band with screaming, they instinctually expect violence or aggression, but these guys have some of the most positive lyrics I’ve ever encountered.

Kid Cudi – Cleveland Is The Reason

Jessie Gutierrez

Honorable Mention:
Hawthorne Heights (Thanks for the title!)
Machine Gun Kelly
Relient K
Hit The Lights
