Hey

Just wondered, whats your views on british bands singing in an american accent? Obviously with the huge influx of indy music (artic monkeys etc) the english accent is used alot more in music, however there are still some british based musicians singing with an americanise accent?

Is this wrong?
Because for me when rehearsing at school for a song or whatnot, an american type of accent naturally comes out, i feel like a right nob singing with an english accent (in terms of prounounciation etc).

Is it frowned upon in the music industry?

Your views?
There's riddles in the shadows
They're thrown the way that i'd expect
And people never seem to know
What they least suspect is coming next

Personally, I think that music tends to hide accents for the most part. English, American, I can barely tell, unless it's really prevalent (like Syd Barret for example)

For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

I think it's fine for Brits to lose the accent when they're singing, but it's horribly obnoxious when Americans put on a British accent. Buttholes.
