First off leave your patriotism at the door! Just curious as to what you think. I love music from every country and every genre. I was listening to a German guy the other day who plays purely Indian style, forget his name. So this isn't a thread that I want to turn into Brit vs America. If I had to live the rest of my life with only 1 places music then it would have to be America. I love both with a passion but I think America trumps us. My brother made a good point, he to prefers American but he said p4p that our music is better. I agree with this, America has so much fucking music so you produce the best and the worst and you produce so much. Brits produce less but a lot of what we do is really good but definitely for me personally American music kicks some fucking ass. I love all genres, my Swedish mate is purely metal and asked me if I prefer English or American metal. For me there is no question..... Yanks are shit hot, bands like Pantera, Stuck Mojo etc. are insanely amazing. He prefers English, I think the age difference had a factor, he was born 10 years before me. Anyway I love all genres. Let's take rap for instance, you guys are obviously the heavyweight champ with no-one coming close, we have some good shit but you guys prob wouldn't like it because of accents and not understanding but we have some good shit to. I am right now into an 80's rock stage, currently listening to The Outfield - Your Love (apparently it's from a GTA game but I don't play games) and Eddie Money - Take me home tonight. Anyway like I said, leave patriotism at the door and if you're just judging Brit music from old stuff then listen to some new stuff.
