Here Is The Ultimate List Of All-Time Top New Jersey’s Music Acts
New Jersey is world-famous for its connections to and influence on the music industry. Lots of people think New Jersey has been the heartbeat of the music world for years.
So when you start trying to rank the musical acts from a state as, well, musical as New Jersey, that can certainly be a slippery slope.
And it's also a topic that you are almost certain to get a ton of disagreement on. Well, I guess it's time to let the arguing begin.
So, who had the courage to tackle this topic for us. It turns out the good folks at Yardbarker were ready to take on this challenge. I say better them than me.
But here was where their genius came in at Yardbarker. Yes, they listed the top 25 musical acts from New Jersey, but they didn't rank them. That takes the controversy right out of the whole thing.
The list does remind us of some of the great acts we forget are from the Garden State, so we broke it down for you.
You Knew These
Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
You Might Have Forgotten These
Kool & The Gang
Maybe You Never Knew
Patti Smith (legendary punk rocker)
Shirelles (formed in 1957 and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members)
Gloria Gaynor (I Will Survive)
George Clinton (Parliament-Funkadelic)
That is quite a lineup of amazing talent coming out of the Garden State. We really are the heartbeat of the music industry. Good for us!
