Well, this is kind of interesting. Forbes has assembled a list of each state's favorite vinyl albums from 2016 based on eBay sales figures. The methodology: "Favorite" means the album a state buys at the highest rate compared to that state's total share of the volume of records purchased. Some examples:
 Georgia:
1. Goats Head Soup – Rolling Stones
2. Sheer Heart Attack – Queen
3. Al Green’s Greatest Hits – Al Green
Goats Head Soup shows up kind of a lot, and I can't imagine why. To me it represents the start of a creative ebb for the band.
Kansas:
1.     Goats Head Soup – Rolling Stones
2.     Thriller – Michael Jackson
3.     Jagged Little Pill –  Alanis Morissette
No love for "Dust in the Wind" Jayhawk State?
Louisiana:
1.     Lazaretto – Jack White
2.     Journey’s Greatest Hits – Journey
3.     Bleach – Nirvana
Proof that Louisiana ain't all New Orleans, I guess.
Massachusetts:
1.     Goats Head Soup – Rolling Stones
2.     Violent Femmes – Violent Femmes
3.     Midnight Marauders – A Tribe Called Quest
Maybe this means that everyone in Massachusetts already has all of Aerosmith and J. Giles on vinyl .
New Hampshire:
1.     Goats Head Soup – Rolling Stones
2.     AM – Artic Monkeys
3.     Kill ‘em All – Metallica
Makes you think, doesn't it?
New York:
1.     Revolver – The Beatles
2.     A Love Supreme – John Coltrane
3.     Illmatic – NAS
Okay, this is respectable.
South Dakota:
1.     Goats Head Soup – Rolling Stones
2.     Band of Gypsys – Jimi Hendrix
3.     Birth of Cool – Miles Davis
This is a weird combination.
Wisconsin:
1.     Fas -- Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum – Deathspell Omega
2.     Back in Black – AC/DC
3.     Jagged Little Pill – Alanis Morissette
Cheese State, what's wrong? Who hurt you, buddy?
