Maybe I look at it differently being from the UK

I mean the US doesn`t really have any pop culture in the way that the UK does.

I mean what was the last U.S. guitar band who were unashamedly pop?

The Beach Boys?

I'm just going to pick up on this because I had to say something about it when I read it. If you think about it, Elvis inspired so many musicians, that then inspired other musicians, that then inspired other musicians that then inspired the musicians we have today. They probably don't realise it but a large percentage of the musicians we hear today wouldn't be out there if it wasn't for Elvis.
I can't remember who said this, but a previous poster pointed out what I have been saying all along and got his point across much better. The British have taken American music and built on it to make it better, which always made us one step ahead of the game. The Americans are better influences, but in my eyes the British are better at making music. Maybe the tide will change someday and the Yanks will build from the Brits' music, but until that day comes we will always be one step ahead of you.

This statement appears hypocritical to me. Am I alone?

Are you kidding me? James Brown had more influence on the stones than the stones had on other people. And wtf man, lay off the GD beatles, we know their influential, no ones arguing that point.

Prince is less influential than Bowie? I don't know where "influential" ended up in this argument, but frankly, Prince has been more prolific, experimental and successful in a short time than bowie and he can blow him out of the water concerning musicianship...I don't even like Prince.

You don't need some British mashup, and im well aware The Boss doesn't give the US a clear victory, just as I've never said The Beatles give you a clear victory.

Why are The Smiths clearly greater? on what grounds? I personally think the smiths are trash, and I didn't say Talking Heads because I already mentioned them, you must have been hiding from me back when I posted that.

Mos Def is probably the greatest rapper in the states right now on the grand scale. What do you mean "thats all you have?"

Everything else is negligible, and quit thinking this is a point for point game, just because there are better bands than Soundgarden doesn't mean their not good.

Default Hi Hobo Jesus!

If you're hitch-hikin' I'll give you a ride back to heaven (if it exists!)

Of course Brit music is better. But for a laugh, check out a world cup hopeful "Chant Like An English Fan" (sung to the Bangles Walk Like An Egyptian") it'll keep you smiling: dubya x 3 dot theladdz.com

I have to admit I've heard MUCH worse over the years, but... based on that it'll probably get played a lot on the radio!
