Boo boo, that was brilliant. It's almost asif I've seen that very argument before...In fact I think I made it.

You asked a question, we gave an answer and you didn't like it so you tried to undermine the strength of Elvis and Bob ****ing Dylan. Get this, NO ONE IS BIGGER THAT DYLAN.

You lose.

Theres also the Fall Of Troy, Nine Inch Nails, Faith No More, Ramones, Mr Bungle, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Television, Talking Heads, Husker Du, Fugazi, Dead Kennedys, Bright Eyes, Sunny Day Real Estate, Mars Volta, Tool etc... You're treating it like america is full of bands/artists that can't even hold a candle to any of those bands.

So with the exception of the debatable Radiohead, Britin hasn't produced anything of note since the 70's?

Of course they can't hold a candle to those bands! The bands you named just are just excellent bands, while the bands he mentioned have years and years worth of total overratedness and unwarranted critical acclaim!

Honestly boo boo. The Clash? They're not even the pinnacle of British punk, much less British music. And I can't believe you're complaining about Elvis not being original, when you just named Led Zep for the British side.

Oh wait, I just remembered that those bands are the Holy Grail of music and no one is ever allowed to speak badly about any of them EVER. Sorry guys, I forgot.

The only american punk band who can take on The Clash or The Pistols in influence is The Ramones, they are pretty much the big 3, obviously.

Im NOT going by just one band here, im saying the UK had more bands with serious amounts of influence and impact, its not about who had the most good bands, because not only is that impossible to measure accurately, its also completely subjective.

Its about who had the most Great bands, or who had the most bands whose roles in rock music matter the most.

Please tell me you're joking about these two. I can see naming the rest, they have the reputation, but fucking Oasis? If you were going to name a Britpop band, couldn't you at least have named Blur? Pulp? And the Sex Pistols? C'mon.

How can you say that British Punk bands are more influential than American ones, when all the first Punk bands were from America?
