Boston: This band from Boston formed by guitarist Tom Scholz (who was born in Toledo, Ohio) had the biggest selling debut album in history.

Chicago: The second biggest charting American band of all time (only the Beach Boys are bigger).

Europe: Named after the entire continent, but actually from Sweden. They had two top ten hits in the U.S. during the late 80's.

Asia: A super group formed in 1981, made up of former members of the Bungles, Yes and Emerson Lake And Palmer. None of the members are actually from Asia.

Toronto: A Canadian group whose female lead singer is named Holly Woods. This band wrote and recorded "What About Love", a song that would later become a top ten hit for rock group Heart.

Kansas: Biggest hits were "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind".
