https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Ohio There are a LOT of impressive bands from Ohio! I think you have to go with either the O'Jays or the Isley Brothers, although admittedly the first bands I thought of were Bone Thugs and Hawthorne Heights. Haha.

People, read the directions! You are asked to name the state where the act originated. It says nothing about where anyone was born.

For Kanye West, I kept typing variations of "Who Cares" and "No One Cares." I can't figure out why those weren't accepted.

This quiz seems to be broken. I had to edit the
section on the fly in Chrome to get the comment posting to function. The quiz is also missing one entry, so it cannot be finished/completed.
