I don't know. I really don't know what good American bands have any albums that can compare to Dark Side of the Moon, Abbey Road, Hail to the Thief.


American Bands should just be replaced with New York City bands, only place any American music is still coming from.

California bands should be replaced by east coast bands, I hate west coast crap as much as I hated travelling to LA...

East coast is the only thing still going on. California music scene has died, just like the rest of the country.

I mean, I think I listen to two American acts still, Animal Collective (New York) and White Stripes (Detroit) those are the only two that I still consider good.

California and the music made by those who expanded the frontiers after the civil war
...Yeah I meant country and western, which I still hate to this day.
Southern Blues destroys the simplicity of Country.

Animal Collective is good, I agree.

Very true. In Utero is the best album from America in our time. Ten is up there too. But other than that, we have to go back to Highway 61 Revisited and Are You Experienced? to even compete against British bands. It's ridiculous, we even lost blues to the Brits, even though guys like Buddy Guy and BB King still kick ass. Tom Petty too is a good American musician, and he is really good, but still I would choose Floyd or Zeppelin over him.

PS. I would recommend to any blues fan to see Buddy Guy, best American act concert I've been too.

See country when it was closer to folk, was really good. Neil Young's Prairie Wind album is my definition of country. Then again. Neil is originally Canadian...We even got beat by Canada.

It seems like the British exceeds america in Prog, blues rock, hard rock, punk, some metal, and of course Pop.

Just look at today's American Pop scene, it's terribly ugly.
the British pop scene is still going strong.

i would have to say that blood on the tracks wins over highway 61 for me. i can't really compare which country i like more because while there is awsomeness like the beatles and radiohead on one side, there is bob dylan and nirvana on the other. **** where it comes from, as long as its good.

Hell, I mean the British alternative scene since the 80s like Radiohead, the Smiths, and the Stone Roses are just uncomparably great compared to the American ones.

But it sort of started when Skiffle totally destroyed country and western in the 50s

Blood on the Tracks is really good too, but my favourite is Highway 61.

But yea, it doesn't matter where it comes from, but it just so happens, most everything I like comes from across the pound from me. The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, Stones, Radiohead, I could go on and on. haha America has a few acts I like.

lets see, most of the best modern prog is ATM coming from the US or mainland Europe, the Brits can have Blues Rock, which is probably the most banal genre of music to ever exist, I haven;t heard any good English hard rock in ages, british punk sucks compared to most good american punk, and I haven't heard much good metal or pop from England in a long time either, so what where you trying to say again?

the brits get taught how to play piano when they're like four, and they don't have an illogical reverence to God and puritanical views like Americans do, and a better educational system and a much longer music history than America has. And their people don't grow up and look at music as bull**** and tell their kids as such ("get a job Johnny, that's all that matters").. Yeah there's virtue in hard work, but the American dream is unfortunately a lot of times the idea of making more money than you know what to do with. In that pursuit, a lot is lost in a culture, and I'm an example of that. If my parents were British they might have actually supported me when I was young instead of completely not

i think muse is pretty Englished out

America basically does just have the punk/grunge and jazz. Britain has a lot. Canada has the "post-rock" genre with just two bands on top of everything else, Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You Black Emperor! Nothing else competes with those bands.

The only music thats better in Britain than in the US is ska.

America has hardcore I guess. Although the Brits have all the crappy Indie-Pop bands that come out on NME and all the annoying rave.

I'm talking about the history, not right now.
the british invasion is declining, but just look at this year's grammy nominations: it's over populated with British artists.
And I'm really proud of them because they deserve it.

British, Canadian, and Australian bands and singers win.

Have we heard ANY good americn pop for the past 20 years or so?
Michael jackson was the last one.

Just because a pop artist isn't in MTV's top 20 countdown doesn't mean that there aren't any "good" american pop nowadays.
