Global Musical Tastes on Google Maps

Global Billboard

Smells Like Teen Spirit is going down a storm in Russia this week with over a thousand fans on Last.fm. Whilst in the USA over 7,000 listeners are Rolling in the Deep with Adele.

Global Billboard visualises the popularity of top artists and top tracks on Last.fm in (nearly) every country in the world, and in more than 200 metro areas. Using the map it is possible to check out which are the most listened to artists and tracks on Last.fm in different countries.

Thanks for the link. I've been looking for a replacement for the wonderful Gracenote map which was a really useful teaching tool for globalisation of music for geography. This looks good !
