Chicago musicChicago has made many significant pop-cultural contributions. In the field of music, Chicago is well-known for its Chicago blues, Chicago soul, Jazz, and Gospel.

The Hip-Hop scene in Chicago is also very influential.
The rock band Chicago was named after the city, although its original name was the Chicago Transit Authority. The band's name was shortened to Chicago after the CTA threatened to sue them for unauthorized use of the original. Chicago also has its own Symphony Orchestra, which rivals that of New York as the nation's best. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago#Music [Nov 2005]
