I just find it funny thats considered alternative
Well, thats just the way it works a guess.

But not every band thats popular qualifys as pop music.

I guess a good way to look at this is (and no, I did not read 38 pages of this thread) nobody is right... I believe boo boo has said in many of his posts...

arguably...

Yep. You can argue. But if someone truly believes something, an online forum argument won't change their mind (of course I can't speak for everyone in every forum, but generally- agreed?) - especially when the argument is based on opinion.

Someone said "Both can learn from each other" - I couldn't agree more.

It's really unimpressive to choose one country over the other based on a list of your favorite bands. Focusing on 1/100000 of the big picture and characterizing the whole based on it? Yeaaah....this thread is making some of you look really bad.

To the hipsters: when someone says they listen to indie, I bet you have a general idea what they are talking about.

the term "indie" is so broad, it's unholy.

I dont think anyones saying US and UK are superior to every other country...But we do know more acts from those 2 nations more than any more country...It dosent make them better, because it could very well be the fact that americans and brits alike are underexposed to a lot of music from around the word.

There may be many great bands from say Finland, but not many people would be able to name 10 of them unless.

A. They looked it up.
B. They actualy live in Finland.

But its not like everyone here are so closeminded that they dont appreciate other countrys for their musical talents.

A lot of people here could name at least 10 artists they like that are from a country other than the UK and the US.

Arguing with boo boo again! haha.
I havent even read this argument aside from the first couple posts, and I am betting that I can guess how it turned out:

After a series of long winded posts, someone became fed up with him, and said they didnt want to go on anymore, at which boo boo claimed he had won the argument.

I`m just doing by my own experiences.

I remember them being in magazines like Smash Hits along with Micheal Jackson & Madonna , I remember them being on the same TV shows as Duran Duran & Spandau Ballet. They wrote traditional english guitar pop just like the likes of The Beatles , the Kinks & The Jam before them. To me they`re pure pop.

A lot of rock bands get that kind of coverage, theres a thin line between rock and pop, and it is possible to be both.

Whatever, i take it since Urban is back he will be reclaiming his shift of defending the brits since thats basicly what i have been doing all day, im out for now, have fun, peace.
