Question of the Day: "National" Artist Names


WFUV presents The National tonight at 8:15 live from Celebrate Brooklyn. That got us to thinking of bands and artists that share names with nations and nationalities of the world. The World Cup may have had something to do with it, too. So, think Afro-Cuban All Stars, Chynna Phillips...Yes, we'll be inclusive - it's a challenging question. Plant your flags in the comments below and we'll map out a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Louis Jordan "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie"

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 "Mais Que Nada"

America "Sister Golden Hair"

Modern English "I Melt With You"
