Pittsburgh Goes Dahn As Having The Worst Accent In The US

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The city known for steel, Super Bowl rings and repeatedly hailed as one of the best places to live has a more nefarious title: ugliest accent in America.

Yinz might disagree, but Gawker's "America's Ugliest Accent" poll closed with Pittsburgh taking 54.32 percent of the vote.

The Steel City won the title over Scranton, which had 45.68 percent of the vote.

According to the website, 19,000 people voted in the final round.

The NCAA-style bracket started several weeks ago with 16 cities around the country, including Pittsburgh, Scranton and Philadelphia.

Pittsburgh also beat out Atlanta, Philly and Boston before taking the title.
