Playlist: Washington State

Jimi Hendrix, one of the greatest guitarists of all-time (if not the best).

The state of Washington has produced an outstanding crop of musicians—possibly the best of any of the 50 states in our union.

Besides the now-legendary grunge movement of the early 1990s, Washington has produced a couple of famous rappers and indie rock outfits, as well as classic rockers like Jimi Hendrix.

Today’s playlist highlights the most successful artists from Washington who have made a significant national impact. All you’ll be missing from the true northeast coast experience is the pouring rain in the background while you listen.

1. Modest Mouse – “The World At Large”
2. Nirvana – “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle”
3. Sir Mix-a-Lot – “Suburbian Nightmare”
4. Jimi Hendrix – “The Wind Cries Mary”
5. Temple of the Dog – “Hunger Strike”
6. Death Cab For Cutie – “Expo ’86”
