About This Quiz

Hidden deep within your favorite songs, bands, and musical artists lies more about you than you would ever venture to think! In this case, we're going to examine the music you turn up to 11 in order to find out which state you live in. Each answer you choose will get us a few miles closer to your current location. 

You don't necessarily have to live in New Jersey to rock a Bon Jovi t-shirt anymore than you have to reside in Illinois to like Chicago. While loving songs like "Sweet Home Alabama" could mean that you call Birmingham or Montgomery your home, it could simply mean that you love Lynard Skynard. The kinds of clues we are looking for are in the way you get down when the music is blaring.

From region to region, certain customs and preferences become somehow built in. The music you choose will reflect those things, and we will match them with the state you call "Home Sweet Home." Have a music app handy because we are really going to dig into your musical knowledge to make sure we are accurate! 

Let's "Take the Long Way Home," and we'll tell you where you live. We're going to get your state abbreviation right!
