MAP: Dakotans like rock and oldies, rap, metal and folk music

Dakotans' musical tastes are eclectic, according to a new analysis on the real estate blog Movoto.

The site compiled federal and corporate data to determine American's musical preferences by location.

In North and South Dakota, no one musical genre predominated, according to the accompanying map. However, rock and oldies, rap and hip-hop, metal and folk had somewhat more preference than other styles of music. Surprisingly, country music was in the next tier down in popularity in the Dakotas.

In one of the nearest metropolitan areas to the Dakotas, the Minneapolis region shared the same eclectic tastes with North and South Dakota and then some, adding blues, jazz and gospel to the Dakotas' popularity mix.
