That's a big part of the influence and why the US & UK have domintated the scene for so long, while you see a lot of little subgenres like death metal coming out of countries like sweden and germany. I guess it becomes nationlistic in the sense of the musicians and their fans and their identities. Music cannot stand without identity. It's just too bad there isn't much talent in that equation right now for any country at least not that I've heard yet insofar as new musicians.

I might also add reading bits of the other conversation that Japanese are great mimics of American culture for certain things like music. In that sense their identities tend to ruin the sincerity of such things.

That really doesn't prove anything.
You have neglected to list the American bands that are just as creative/great/influential/experimental/groundbreaking.

They've been listed a million times, so I do not feel the need to produce another list.

The only reason no one's heard of many bands from Japan is because Westerners (for lack of a better term) tend to focus more on North American and European (and even then it's only a few select countries) music, and don't tend to search out music elsewhere.

I said early on in the thread that Japan had a great music scene right now, and I stand by that. I also named France and Germany, if I remember correctly.
