Known in some circles as "The Mistake By The Lake" (i.e., Erie) or "The/Tha Land," Cleveland is the largest urban area in UsefulNotes/{{Ohio}}. Located on the state's northeastern coast, it's often considered a WretchedHive and a PlaceWorseThanDeath, and the source of a [[http://youtu.be/L_DEp1lz0CM?t=32s steaming joke]] that's been going for years. Recent polls and news articles only reinforce this image, as it was once rated the [[http://www.forbes.com/2010/02/11/americas-most-miserable-cities-business-beltway-miserable-cities.html most miserable city in America]]. It was also the original {{Trope Namer|s}} for AliensInCleveland, as the city is considered by many the image of mundane mediocrity (at best).

The term "RockAndRoll" was coined in Cleveland by local DJ Alan Freed, and the city has a proud musical heritage and is home to both the RockAndRoll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Orchestra, the youngest of America's "Big Five" symphonies (the others are New York, Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia). However, Cleveland also houses the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polka_Hall_of_Fame Polka Hall of Fame]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovenian-style_polka Cleveland Style Polka]] is a sub-genre of music named after the [[PolkaDork Polka Dorks]] of the city due mostly in part to the success of Frankie Yankovic but also to a large number of people of German and Eastern European (especially Polish) descent in Cleveland. Jazz musicians, including scat jazz, also have been and continue to be popular. The Playhouse Square in downtown is the second-largest theatre complex in the United States, behind UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity's Lincoln Center. The city is also sometimes used as a stand-in for NYC or Chicago in film, due to lower filming costs, since it has similar architecture[[note]]Many a local has {{squee}}d upon seeing the Trust Company Rotunda in ''SpiderMan 3''[[/note]]. It possesses a surprising number of truly beautiful churches, more museums than a city thrice its size generally has, and two of the best library systems in the country. Cleveland's the home of Case Western Reserve University, one of the more bizarrely named colleges in the country[[note]]The Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve University used to be two separate institutions until 1967. "Western Reserve" itself refers to an old name for northeast Ohio, the Connecticut Western Reserve, claimed by the state of Connecticut for its veterans to settle in following the American Revolution until the state agreed to give it up to the newly-formed state of Ohio.[[/note]], and Cleveland State University. An hour southeast is Kent State University, a [[StrawmanU Berzerkeley]] known for an infamous shootout in 1970.

Cleveland's professional sports teams generally go through extended periods of crappy performance with losing streaks of several games on end, interrupted with periods where they steamroll through everyone in their way. Supporting its football team, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRBDMMVctu8 Browns]] [[note]]Before you ask what a "Brown" is, the team was named after its first owner, Paul Brown, former Ohio State University coach and a highly respected figure in Ohio athletics.

For an animal mascot, dogs have long been popular due to the city's first pro football team, the Bulldogs.[[/note]], tends to be [[ButtMonkey/{{Sports}} a lesson in masochism]]. The city has had a rivalry with UsefulNotes/{{Pittsburgh}} for decades. Also, never, ''ever'' say anything nice about the UsefulNotes/{{Baltimore}} [[BerserkButton Ravens]][[note]]The original Browns team moved to Baltimore through some shady dealing on owner Art Modell's part, then went on to achieve UsefulNotes/SuperBowl success that Clevelanders believe should be theirs. The new Browns debuted in 1999 and have not fared nearly as well.[[/note]]. Its baseball and basketball teams -- the Indians and Cavaliers, respectively -- are fairly solid, although the Indians have currently gone for over sixty years without a World Series title, longer than any other Major League Baseball team that hasn't been [[UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} cursed by a goat-owning bartender]]... at least until 2016, when they inherited the title of longest drought ''by losing to the Cubs!'' Meanwhile the Cavs (founded in 1970) never even made it to the NBA Finals until 2007. When it looked like the latter were poised to finally win a championship in the late [=2000s=], they ended up losing star player [=LeBron=] James (from nearby Akron, some 40 miles [64 kilometers] to the south) to the UsefulNotes/{{Miami}} Heat in 2010, with whom he won two titles... before he chose to return to the Cavs in 2014, leading them to their very first NBA title in 2016 (in which they became the first team ever to rally from a 1-3 hole in the Finals) and ending a 52-year championship drought which had affected ''all'' of Cleveland's pro sports teams ever since the Browns won a title in 1964 (two years ''before'' the Super Bowl even ''existed''). On the other sports, hockey is only represented through the second-tier American Hockey League (the NHL only had a Cleveland team for two years), where ten Cleveland teams won the Calder Cup, most recently the Lake Erie Monsters in 2016 - just 8 days before the Cavs' title;[[note]]The Monsters, farm team of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, are owned by the same guy as the Cavaliers and the teams share an arena![[/note]] and while Cleveland won some indoor soccer tournaments, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AFC_Cleveland the town's only team]] is in the fourth tier (Usefulnotes/MajorLeagueSoccer is in Ohio, but in capital Columbus).
