Ansonia gets name-checked in the Guided by Voices song, "Matter Eater Lad," by Robert Pollard. He's probably talking about Ansonia, Ohio (pop. 1200; zip code 45303), seeing as Pollard himself hails from Dayton, Ohio. Ansonia, OH, is in Darke County, about 40 miles northwest of Dayton, at the intersection of Ohio highways 47 and 118.

A glance at Ansonia in is ... uninspiring.

Ansonia shares its name with a Connecticut city near New Haven.
