NJ Artists... help me out here

I have been brainstorming with bandmates, friends, and co-producer of the tribute Jay Hoffman (and getting some help form Jack Rabid/Big Takeover) on a list of Jersey bands that could be covered for the new compilation CD.  Here's what we have so far.

Sinatra, Frankie Valli, Springsteen, Debbie Harry/Blondie, Smithereens, The Shirelles, Leslie Gore, Feelies, Wild Carnation, Misfits, Bongos, Southside Johnny, Bon Jovi, Connie Francis, Adrenalin OD, Fountains of Wayne, Gaslight Anthem, Yo la Tengo, East River Pipe, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, John Eddie, Dillinger Escape Plan, Bouncing Souls, Wrens (one of my personal favorite and too often overlooked bands), Patti Smith, Monster Magnet, Nicole Atkins,  DBs (once they moved to Hoboken),  Lord John,  Spent, Tiny Lights, Ditch Croaker,  Big Troubles, Real Estate, Vivian Girls, Titus Adronicus, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Screaming Females,...

NJ mentioned in songs... Freddie Boom Boom Cannon's "Palisades Park", Tom Waits' Jersey Girl,.....

Frankie Valli - now that says Jersey
