For today's Rock & Roll Book Club pick, Jay Gabler brought by Butterflies and Tall Bikes: West Bank Stories of Community, Creativity, and Change by Jamie Schumacher - a book about the rich musical legacy of Minneapolis's Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.

It's got us thinking about other legendary music scenes -- Seattle '90s grunge, New York '50s bebop, Athens Georgia college rock, L.A. Paisley Underground, etc.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, name the iconic song you want to hear and the legendary music scene it originated from.
