What do the following locations have in common?

1. Alabama.

2. Chicago.

3. Kansas.

4. Boston.

UPDATE: The first commenter got it right. They're all the names of bands. (I guess I could have added "Texas," as in the country group "Little Texas.")

Now the second question, which may not have an answer: All of these bands date back 20-30 years. How come bands of the 1990s-2000s didn't (or don't) take the names of cities or states? (Or do they? I can't think of any recent examples.)

They all lent their names to pop/rock bands. (Compare/contrast with Chilliwack.)

It's a trend, just like naming yourself after a kind of fabric or synthetic fiber.
