The list was created by music steaming service Spotify’s subsidiary The Echo Nest. The map they created shows which song, from Spotify’s playlist of Top Fourth of July Songs, is listened to most by people in each state.
Illinois music fans favored John Mellencamp’s “R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.” as their most-heard Fourth of July song. In Iowa, the favored Fourth of July song was “Arlington” by Trace Adkins, the report said.

That Iowa favorite didn’t make the overall list for favorites in the entire U.S. The Illinois favorite ranked 15th among favorite Fourth of July songs for the whole country, and the top Fourth of July song in the country was Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A,” followed by Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.”
The Spotify folks also ranked how much people in each of the 50 states, plus Washington, D.C., listened to their list of “Fourth of July” music last year. The District of Columbia listened to the most Fourth of July music, and Alaska listened to the least. Illinois ranked 19th on the list and Iowa ranked #32.
