Seriously though, I don't who the best band of the past two decades are. I don't think I can even pick the best band of the past two years without changing my mind within the next five minutes.

Why, my arguement still holds true. You're gong back to 1986 if im reading your correctly. You don't think anything as good as QotSA and the Mars Volta came out since 1986?

well ok, maybe i was streching it with the 2 decades, i was thinking more like, last decade, last 2 decades would have to include the grunge movement ( Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam )...but that's about it...last decade definetly...

Reading the previous posts, the argument always seems to divert from which continent makes the best music to which continent has the best taste in music. Now people keep saying 'it doesn't matter which continent has the best taste in music' but yes, it does. The Brits, IMO, have a much better ear for music. The British album charts are filled with such a diverse range of music, and this diversity means that seemingly anyone can change from an unknown to a chart topper within a short amount of time. This means that it isn't **** music that's being rewarded, it's good music (usually). Because of this British bands aren't afraid to experiment, because they know that as long as their music is good then it has a very good chance of becoming the next big thing. This doesn't happen in America, partly down to size of the continent as you said Expletive, but also because Americans seem to scared to change the formula. Your charts are polluted with Rap and RnB at the moment, because they are the only sorts of music that are being allowed to take the limelight at the moment. And this has been the case for a while now-before Rap it was Pop Punk, and before it was Pop Punk it was mindless Rock. America loves to latch onto a genre for a while and then practically beat it to death with huge amounts of airplay, endless amounts of useless bands and the like. While this happens in Britain it is way less of a concern and always has been. This is why Britain is better-it is not afraid to experiment, because it is allowed to.

Seriously, all of you are just being biased towards your own country, its irritating.

Name me one current american band who are just as good as Radiohead.

I think you can sum up the difference like this.

In the U.S. alternative rock becomes huge in 1992 , 10/12 years later all the copycat bands are still huge.

In 1994 in Britain Britpop becomes huge , by 1997/98 most of the copycat bands had dissapeared into obscurity.
