There's a great article (read it here) that talks about each state's listening preferences. The author compiled a bunch of data from private info (Spotify, maybe Pandora, iHeartRadio) and created this great map!

Breaking it down, Rhode Island's music preference is Nirvana, Massachusetts is Neil Young, Vermont is Phish (big surprise there), New Hampshire is the Grateful Dead, and Connecticut is David Guetta. Sorry Connecticut!
