From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The City and County of San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California and the fourteenth-most populous in the United States, with a 2006 estimated population of 744,041. It is located on the tip of the San Francisco Peninsula and is the focal point of the San Francisco Bay Area. San Francisco is the second most densely populated major city in the United States.
Bands such as the Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and the Grateful Dead were part of the San Francisco scene that emerged in the 2nd half of the 1960s. Frank Zappa criticized this scene in songs such as Flower Punk and Who Needs The Peace Corps?.
