In honor of the recent recognition by Thrillist that Michigan is the best state in the nation (because DUH, it totally is, and how can a list on the internet be wrong), I thought I would do another Listen to the Mitten edition of Tune Tuesday. Whenever I get to hear great new Michigan music, the first thing I do is add it to my playlist (and force everyone I know to listen to it.)

And of course Michigan is the best state – where else would Stephen Colbert hijack a public access station and interview Eminem, one of our state’s greatest prides?
