The 50 States: Indiana

This locomotive of rock and roll continues to steam across the nation and the next stop is, Indiana.

Indiana, I wanted to comment that I felt like you had lots of interstates. I didn't want to upset your great citizens and it's true -- the only times I've visited indiana is on my way to somewhere else -- but you actually do have more miles of interstate than any other state!. You have also given us such great things as the Indy 500, the beginning of the Lewis and Clark expedition, the P47 fighter plane, Raggedy Anne, the first professional baseball game, James Dean, David Letterman, the only rotary jail in the US, top-quality limestone, studebakers, Van Camps Pork and Beans, a John Dillinger prison escape, the Gatling gun, the center of the underground railroad, Larry Bird, Bill Blass, Jimmy Hoffa, Michael Jackson, Shelley Long, Cole Porter, Kurt Vonnegut, and Wilbur Wright.

I'll also go ahead and say something that actually may piss some people off. Gary is actually the scariest, shittiest city that I think I have ever been to. I never feel safe there. Despite that, we still love you, Indiana!

Next up we have Iowa, so go ahead and contribute some songs in the comments if ya'll feelin' it.

Haha, this is great. I'm from Indiana, and I agree with you completely. Gary is as much of a ghetto as any human could imagine. My hometown was actually the place with the first rotary jail. Crazy stuff.

Well it's the only one that I can find that is currently operating, currently still standing -- so even though there may have been others, this was at one time the only and is currently the only.

We could argue semantics if you want.

"Indiana Wants Me" - R. Dean Taylor 1970

"Stuck In Indianapolis," 1997, The Bottle Rockets -- you credit it as as "Indianapolis" by Tweedy and Farrar. That's obviously the Bottle Rockets Brian Henneman singing on this cut, but he played with Tupelo et. al., so it could be a UT version.

About Iowa:

Greg Brown has a couple of songs off of The Live One. Specifically "Canned Goods" (13 min. version)

From Over and Under: "Fairfield" (about the Maharishi University) is great.

William Elliott Whitmore mentions Iowa in Diggin' My Grave".
