How many songs about Minnesota can you name? I bet you can name several amazing artists from Minnesota like Prince and Bob Dyan, but can you think of specific songs with Minnesota or a city name in the title or lyrics?

“Duluth” by Trampled By Turtles and "Good Old Days" by Macklemore are a couple of my favorites, but neither is the best song about the state according to 24/7 Wall St.

Top Songs About Minnesota Landmarks

Explore Minnesota highlighted top songs celebrating Minnesota landmarks including, Prince's "Uptown," Johnny Cash's "Big River," The Replacements' "Skyway," and Weird Al's "The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota" but none of those are the top song about the state according to 24/7 Wall St.

24/7 Wall St. chose the best songs representing each state based on Spotify play counts. The song selected for Minnesota was released in 2003 and is all about loving where you're from.

The Best Song About Minnesota

"I wanted to make a song about where I'm from, You know? Big up my hometown, my territory, my state. But, I couldn't figure out much to brag about. Prince lives here, we got 10,000 lakes"

24/7 Wall St. selected Atmosphere's "Say Shh" as the top song for Minnesota. "A song like 'Say Shh' translates well because it's about being proud of where you're from. Many people can relate to that if they choose to."

For 25 years, this duo from Minneapolis has been crafting music, with over two dozen albums under their belt, including their latest release, "So Many Other Realities Exist Simultaneously." Find the song "Say Shh," on the "Seven's Travels" album.
