Thrillist has released their list of the best band in every state, saying "It implicitly makes a statement about the quality of your home state, and choosing just one band will invariably piss people off. We embrace it."

While we all have our favorite local bands, they are thinking more like Tom Petty for Florida, OutKast for Georgia, Portugal. The Man for Alaska and The Killers for Nevada. And spoiler, Thrillist did not choose Nirvana for Washington.

As for Montana? According to this list, Missoula's own Silkworm is the best band from Montana. The indie rock band began in Missoula in the late 80's and went on to find success, and a new drummer, in Seattle. Sadly, their drummer Michael Dahlquist was killed in a car accident in 2005. Andy Cohen and Tim Midyett then continued as a band known as The Bottomless Pit.
