That is some list, nice representation for us here in Jersey. So we have established there's a ton of talent, but what about New Jersey's most "iconic song"? Stacker did an article about the most "iconic songs" in America, including New Jersey. "Every state has an ode in song. California's sandy beaches and green valleys have inspired tracks by Tupac Shakur, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beach Boys, and Johnny Cash. "Empire State of Mind" and "Welcome to New York" are only two of the recent additions to the peck of songs celebrating New York's Big Apple. Country tunes abound with Texas pride."

What about us here in the Garden State? What song is popping through your head? Is it a Bruce Springsteen tune? E Street Shuffle? Here is what Stacker had to say "Native Jersey son Bruce Springsteen singing about leaving New York City for the state across the Hudson River fills any Jersey girl (or boy, for that matter) with state pride. Just listen to the audience applaud at the line "cause down the shore everything's all right / you and your baby on a Saturday night" on the live version to see what we mean."
