We don't like to say Idah is "divided" in 2024. More like, we have folks here from all different walks of life, and many different viewpoints.

Some would say that's a bad thing. However, we believe that's what makes Idaho such a great place to live! It really wouldn't be fun if everyone looked the same, spoke the same, had the same beliefs, and liked the same music. That sounds so boring.

But with the current political climate in Idaho being simmering at best, did this pop song from 1978 predict the Gem State's attitude in 2024?

Way, way back in 1978, the pop-rock gods The B-52's released a song titled "Private Idaho." Wait until you read some of the lyrics:

You're living in your own private Idaho
You're living in your own private Idaho
Keep off the path, beware of the gate (your own private Idaho)
Watch out for signs that say "hidden driveways"

Um, what?

Did the B-52's just assume way back in 1978 that things would be very tense in Idaho in 2024? Is this them calling out the "I'm an Idaho native" point of view that's become more prominent in the 2020s?

We have questions.
