Who's being defensive?

I was just showing that Brits did this sort of thing just as well too.

You don't see me trying to argue that Brits do blues or country or hip hop better do you?

You pick your arguments wisely I suppose.

Nowhere did I say defensive was a negative thing, though. Just calling it as I see it.

Not in the traditional sense but there were some great British post punk bands that used funk as a base for their sound.

Not that I would argue they were better. Two totally different things.

Yes it's called trying to have a balanced opinion.

For me it's all about the Brits in the 60s and 70s for rock, while I prefer America 80s-present day. Did Britain have rock music in the 50s?

I think for the rock genre it's a toss up as to what people prefer. Having a bigger impact on rock music, I'd probably give it to Britain for the bands that need not be listed for the 100th time. But preference-wise, I still like America a little.

Besides grunge, we also had the indie rock of the 90s like Pavement, Sonic Youth, Slint, Dinosaur Jr., Yo La Tengo, etc. which was a lot more inspired and creative than today's indie.
