Earning its fame from the Journey song, Don’t Stop Believing, South Detroit is an incorrect reference to the southwest region of Detroit, Michigan. According to Steve Perry, "I ran the phonetics of east, west, and north, but nothing sounded as good or emotionally true to me as South Detroit...The syntax just sounded right. I fell in love with the line. It's only been in the last few years that I've learned that there is no South Detroit. But it doesn't matter." Detroit doesn’t actually have a south side, as that would be Windsor, Ontario in Canada.
