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
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
Hawthorne Heights (Thanks for the title!)
Machine Gun Kelly
Hit The Lights
