Yeah I forgot PJ was a puddle jumper. Anyway, this argument is usually stupid but since the whole first pages was Brits slagging statesmen and one atlantian defector, I figured I'd throw out what we're good for.
America turns out alot of bands in a short period, its sort of like birth, you release a million bands, one has to get pregnant off success.
and to you arrogant folk who said "well we have these guys, so we win" let me just say

Well, I'm from a different era, so my comment are kept to what I know about. It was mentioned earlier that Yanks wrote about the issues more than the Brits. Well, going back to the time of the British Invasion (yes, that deserves to be capitalized), Yanks were in the midst of Vietnam, so, in all fairness to the Brits, the Yanks had a lot more social issues to write about.
So, anyway, doing a short list of what I listened to in my teens:
Hmmm.....sounds to me like I win.

Can I have a youtube video for a sig? There's a thing that says "Wrap [YOUTUBE] tags around selected text"

We went back there and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried. I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out. I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it. I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a diamond... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought: My God... the genius of that.

As I have said before, to me British music is much more relevant to me personally while American music is probably much more relevant to people from America. I'm not saying I prefer British music just because it's British, but in my record collection there's twice as many British artists as there are American artists.

I think that the British are best at making music too, partly because I'm English.
But why aren't all the Americans supporting their own music??
Even they probably already know that it's crap..........
(I'm only kidding!!)
So here's a few artists (in no particular order of quality or success), that should support the theory that the Brits make fantastic music.
2. Pink Floyd
3. The Cars
4. Bruce Hornsby & The Range
5. Chris Rea
6. Franz Ferdinand
That'll be all for now.....
