I am talking about the teenybopper pop artists that all the young women crave, like Demi Lovato and Justin Bieber.

OTOH, where is classic rock more popular? Country? Which states, regions and regions of states?

Those particular artists are pretty much out of the "teenybopper" scene. Got to old and adult for the labels and pretty much moved on to purely being entertainers versus "artists". I'm not even sure Justin has had an album in the last 3 years and Demi has been in and out of rehab.

Musical tatses pretty much can be found anywhere and enjoyed at any stage, although uber mainstream pop artists like Bieber tend to primarily be marketed towards teens and sometimes younger crowds to capitalize on the influence teens have in selling music and entertainment. The main goal with them is to sell concerts and merchandise by the thousands to kids (using their parents dollars) who simply like them the same way they liked Barney 5 years earlier.

The mainstream music is primarily made up of Hip-Hop/Rap and Pop music and Toronto, LA, and Atlanta are the primary locations that boost artists and their ability to break out. Tennessee (with Nashville and Memphis at the heart) is still the soul for country music, although I've noticed that a lot of country music artists are coming more and more from cities like NYC and DC. We're also seeing more Americana and older rock come out of the south and cities with music roots like Seattle and Minneapolis.

Keep in mind that the teen artist have to bring in as much money as possible in a short amount of time (they usually go out of fashion by their 5th year or when their base turns 18 and grows up) so they're constantly trying to sell sell sell. So your constantly hearing about them in areas outside music making them and pop music seem bigger then it is. I wouldn't say it's more popular in a particular state or region, more so just a particular age group. In terms for Rock and other styles of music; they can be found pretty much everywhere as music doesn't really have boundaries.

Neither of those artists are hot right now. Hip hop and electro pop are probably the standard young people genres right now.

You're about 8 years late to the punch on that one.

Teenyboppers are popular because their media reach is epidemic in that age bracket. It's not really about any "one place". Those girls who like performers like that will travel from all around: the immediate area to commuter suburbs to even farther, to see their favorite star. Wherever there is internet and the reach of modern western culture, they will be popular.

Cities like Chicago, Cleveland, Milwaukee, St Louis, Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Minneapolis would be my suggestions.

I guess maybe Appalachia or the super-remote towns of Alaska and the Mountain West? Those places seem to be farther behind culture-wise than the rest of the country.

Classic rock isn't limited to those far reaches in terms of popularity. Many cities in the Midwest (and elsewhere) still maintain a very active club scene with live rock.

For what? Demi or Beiber? No. Classic Rock? Maybe out in Waukesha County. Country? No. But when I have to drive up to Fond du Lac for hockey and start to lose Milwaukee channels and have to resort to scanning the radio A LOT of country comes on.
