For many years, Kansas has had a vibrant country and bluegrass scene.

Punk rock

Topeka, Lawrence, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri were, together, an influential hardcore punk scene. The Embarrassment, Mortal Micronotz, Exploding Rodents, The Slabs, Near Death Experience, Orange Doughnuts (The OD's) and Tunnel Dogs were among the most popular, most centered at Lawrence's University of Kansas campus. The Mortal Micronotz were probably the most famous outside of the area.
