Complete Poll Results: NPR Listeners Pick 2008's Best Music

NPR listeners cast tens of thousands of votes in the All Songs Considered music poll. You nominated 100 albums, and we've added up the votes.

You can listen to songs from the Top 25 CDs of the year by going here or subscribing to the podcast.
We will have a live chat about the poll December 16th at 2pm EST. Check here for more information on Tuesday.

I also wondered where the bands nominated in our poll came from. I put this together, so feel free to comment or correct me on this. You can also go to our archive of any band on the map.
It's fun, but Montana, Idaho, Utah and Nevada didn't produce a single band on the map. Let's make this a priority for 2009! Anyone know a world-class band from that region?
