what is up with the pink hate. grant it that syd barrets contributions were well taken and GOOD, are you disregarding the significance of 'the dark side of the moon' and 'the wall'. i know they had more, but those are 2 really standout albums. i would say 'dark side of the moon' is the best album that you can listen to from beginning to end without ever wanting to change a song or have the music stop.

For every one decent UK band there are at least 20 absolutely dreadful bands. But you can't argue with the longevity of The Who, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Black Sabbath etc.
So please don't keep on asking

I would've never ever written this song

I've lived in the UK my whole life and I think we've got a lot of talent here. I listen to more artists from the UK than from anywhere else but I think that's got more to do with the levels of exposure I've had than an actual preference for 'our way of doing it'.

It's nice to have the general public considering our accents important in music at the moment.

I used to like westlife. I generally prefer UK band than US. Just my weird preference.

The UK has produced a lot of influential bands… The Cure, Led Zeppelin, Joy Division, Queen, The Smiths, The Clash and the Stone Roses to name a few. The UK still have a lot of talent but I guess they probably won’t be as great as those mentioned.

UK bands are vital, the whole Scottish indie scene on its own is vital.
There’s something about seeing this city at night
Where we can say what we want and do what we like.
These streets are empty but we don't feel alone,
We can run in the dark and sleep on the roads.

Love UK bands! I think their music is more about the music and not about the artist's diva life. My two cents!

The UK has put out many many good bands. Currently, they have a pretty good doom metal scene.
