Boo Boo is clearly Delusional so i'll ask Crow and Explative, have I not listed bands that give us clear and away grounding in the genres their in?

Did I not say he continues to harbor this Beatles point (which he continued to do in the only post he's responded to me in)

Is it me, or is the sense im making being ignored?

James Brown - Certainly, but his influence is primarly on funk and r&b, while The Beatles and The Stones had more diverse influence on different genres.


Prince - Great musician, he has made some great pop songs, but compare him to someone like David Bowie, he has been far more consistant works, greater longetivity, he has made more classic albums, and he has more influence on modern music, argubly.

Bruce Spingsteen - Theres no one i can really compare him to, so i wont try, but that still dosent give the US a clear victory.

Paul Simon - With Simon And Gurfenkel, then yes not many can compare, as a solo artist theres many who have had more significence to popular music, though he did help introduce worldbeat music to western audiences, Peter Gabriel also played a part in that as well.

The Pixies - In terms of alternative rock, UK have The Smiths, who are clearly greater, a better choice would have been The Talking Heads.

Soundgarden - Are you kidding me?...They cant touch most of the UK acts i have mentioned.

Mos Def - Of all the great american rap artists, thats all you got?

Al Green - Ok, i wont argue with this, his influence is huge.

Ray Charles - ^ Read above statement.

I never said US didnt have some standout artists, because everybody already knows that isnt true dammit, you keep taking what i say out of context, Bruce Springsteen and Al Green dosent make US better than a country that has had The Beatles, The Stones, The Who, The Clash, etc.

I don't see the connection. Sure, the two were popular Alt bands, but they don't even belong to the same genre.

Ok, Radiohead then?

Pixies influenced Radiohead, but Radiohead are argubly greater.

Why not?...What would you call them then?

Any rock band who dont easly fall into any other category could be easly considered alternative rock.

Well, pop itself itsnt as much as a genre as a simple category, every genre has a good deal of pop elements, especialy punk rock, and most alternative rock bands do a have a pop sound, while managing to make something different that what is presented by the meainstream, which is pretty much what The Smiths did.

It`s nothing to do with sound really.

The Smiths had more mainstream attention than U2 did at the time they were around.

I just find it funny thats considered alternative
