Country Producing Best Bands/Acts
« on: January 08, 2020, 09:01:11 AM »

From your perspective and tastes, what country has the best music/band/act output.  I'm not talking about the most, but the best.

My top 5 all time favorite bands, in no order are:
U2
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
Rush
Genesis

Though I am from the U.S, none of my top five are from here, with 3 from England, so I guess my "vote" would be England.

The U.K. would probably get my vote, though Canada has had some great ones too.

The UK. And it’s not even close.

The U.S had plenty of great bands.  Depending on your source, and the order can certainty be debated, here are the top 10 U.S bands of all time

The Doors
Aerosmith
Metallica
Nirvana
Guns n Roses
CCR
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Van Halen
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
The Beach Boys

Here are the top 10 UK bands of all time (dependent on your source)

Led Zeppelin
Elvis Costello
David Bowie
The Sex Pistols
The Kinks
The Clash
The Who
Radiohead
The Rolling Stones
The Beatles

Compare, contrast, what say you and which team stacks up?

Do you mean ever or right now? Raw numbers or per capita?

I guess my thinking was all time, but you can take it and interpret as you like.

I was always curious why so many great artists came out of Athens, Georgia.
For me though i think the UK and more specific Manchester has produced the best artists.

ENGLAND.

The Beatles
The Rolling Stones
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
Queen
The Police
Radiohead
The Who
The Kinks
Genesis
Sade
Oasis
Blur
The Stranglers

R.E.M is America's best band, but really the USA is the land of solo artists.  Prince and Bruce Springsteen are greatest of all time.

There's been great bands over the years from both sides of the pond.

Probably more from the UK for my particular taste, but no shortage from either.

None. Justin Bieber is not a band.

But, in the name of my country, I would like to apologize to the whole world for Nickelback.
