Beating the elderly is a big favourite of mine. Also, pushing kids over and kicking pregnant women in the womb is fun.



Right now we're called 'Various Artists' just to fuck over people with iPods

England had the best music in the 80ies and we did start punk so im gona have to go with that even though there is some right shit comin from england now!
#4
Britain; Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink floyd, Sex Pistols, Oasis, The Clash, Cream, The Cure, David Bowie, Electric Light Orchestra, Elton John, The Kinks, Moody Blues, Queen, The Police, The Who, T.rex are reasons for my choice...

hmmm...Britians got the Beatles, Stones, Zep, Floyd, Clapton but Americas got The Doors, CCr Nirvana shit i guess i could go on forever for both countries. For me i think is Britian it produced the Beatles who's music i think its gonna last the longerst out of anyone's.
#7
i also go with britain as my favorite genre of music is classic rock thus britain had the control of the market to say the least.
Gibson 58 VOS, Gibson Rich Robinson ES-335, Fender Strat, Fender RoadWorn 50's Tele, Gibson LP Jr Special

Marshall JTM45, Fender BJR NOS

britain has produced great bands such as thin lizzy, the darkness but the the usa has produced so many more, metallica, guns n roses. both countries produce a load of crap too though, but i think cos the usa is bigger they happen to produce more good bands. At the moment britain seems to be producing all the indie bands, which imo is a bad thing, i want heavy metal!

America's bigger, so it produces more bands.

So there'll be more bands, so naturally, there'll be more good bands.

But Britain makes better bands, because it produces so many good bands, from a smaller population.
#11
In my opinion Britain produces them, but America makes them. So either way really, but i think the Beatles sways it for Britain.
#14
Although this poll is based on biased voters i still think Britain produced better music, alot of that was due to The Beatles

I thought punk started in the USA after the sex pistols manager heard a band play in new york? My punk knowledge is sketchy at best. the guy that I got all my punk info from did kind of have his head up his arse 95% of the time and thought he knew everything . So you could quite well be right lol

ps i totally agree with your screen name

At the min the USA gets my vote, but given time I recon we'll be back up there..... just as soon as the indie bubble bursts.

Britain

Led Zep, Black Sabbath, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, The Clash, Cream, Sex Pistols, The Kinks, Status Quo, Queen, The Who, Radiohead, Muse, Blur, Bowie, The Beatles, The Smiths, The Police, The Stone Roses, T-rex, Slade, Primal Scream, Duran Duran, Deep Purple, Rainbow

and thats just off the top of my head

America only really has Aerosmith, GNR (with an english guitarist), JH (who was made in England), The Doors, The Eagles, Van Halen, Pearl Jam, REM and Queensryche that can really be called great

Britain had all the amazing classic rock bands (Led Zep, the who and all that) and although america is doing better than it was, how can you compare with Muse, Radiohead, Blur, Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight, Kasabian, Ash (irish but whatever, that's practically britain) Stereophonics, Maximo Park, Hope Of The States and litelly dozens more recent good bands. There is also a lot less shit (still tonnes but compared to America it's nothing)
American may have Smashing Pumkins and Audioslave, but not that much else that is really mindblowing IMO
#25
I wouldn't say Britain just itself produces better bands, I'd say Europe produces better bands than the rest of the world combined.

None of those can be called great?

Even nowadays, British bands are alot better than the shitty pop rock bands from the United States
#30
You can't say that one country's music is better than another's without making ignorant generalizations.
#31
Ya the beatles pretty much won this one.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

Neither. Sweden (the whole of Scandinavia infact) produces a disgustingly massive amount of fantastic bands.

IMO its Britain, but if I was from the US then it would probably be different.
#36
Who's voting Britain? Nonsense! However, per capita, their musical ownage is higher. It's like, 0.01 per capita as opposed to 0.005 here. Pretty impressive.
