Most bands I like from England that were popular during the 80's actually formed or started out in the 60's and 70's. So I kinda agree about the division line of 1980. There are a few exception for me like The Fixx and The Smiths, they formed in the 80's there are the only one I can think of right now, but you are totally wrong about The Clash They are not a post 1980 band but were quite active in the 70's. There are more Clash albums prior to Combat Rock in their catalogue, you should check them out.
Oh god bro please don't think I'm a rookie. I own London Calling, Give 'Em Enough Rope and the self titled debut ( have since about 96-99 when I was allowed to buy my own records ), and greatly treasure all 3. I was only referring to the Clash's 80's output.

Incredibly bad voice? Not my cup of tea to be frank but still each to their own.

I will say though, that if I ever get Khe Sanh, a veritable karaoke Classic, foisted on me by either radio, TV or as background muzac in Jeans West or Gloria Jeans it will be far too soon for my own mental state. My ex wife also played that Working Class thingy far too much for my liking. Divorce was inevitable, though to digress a 2 hour continuous playing of 500 Miles by The Proclaimers may have had something to do with that. Ironically Barnsy was in fact of Scottish birth as well.

Barnsy is a form of water torture that will unfortunately water torture me until my fast approaching grave. What always did my tiny little mind over was that at the same time there was this astonishingly vibrant scene across the pond in New Zealand with some wonderful quirky pop bands on offer, The Chills, The Bats, The Bird Nest Roys, The Mutton Birds and the sublime Chris Knox to name but a few and my fellow countrymen, and ex wife, were listening to the macho screaming of the Pub Rock scene and the Barnsy's, Farnsy's and Darryl's of the world. There was a fantastic parody on all this. The song was about members of the audience yelling at the Originals band that they wanted them to do a few covers "why don't you play some Chisel, some Chisel, some Chisel, some Chisel" they sang but when the band refuses an audience member yells "arrrrrrrrrrrgh play some fucken rock n roll yas poofters" Kulture was alive and well in the burbs of Orstraya back in the 80's and 90's.

Still give credit where it is due Barnsy done some fine charity work for the homeless and that is to be commended. Now where are my Louis Tillett albums. I need to slit my wrists.

he has a great classic rock voice with incredible power and range. he literally does not sing in the same way that conventional signers do; it cannot be taught.

he sings in tune too, so that's a plus.

I voted for Canada because:
1) I'm Canadian
2) There are a LOT of great bands that tour exclusively in Canada, which creates a phenominal scene that is under-represented in the rest of the world
3) I figured Canada would be under-reresented in the poll as well :p

By the decades.

50s: USA
60s: Tie
70s: UK
80s: Tie
90s: USA
00s: USA

Granted the 70s are my favorite decade so I'd probably go with the UK anyway.

That's an interesting way of doing it. Here's my take:

50s: USA
60s: Tie
70s: Tie
80s: UK
90s: UK
00s: USA

I like this way of doing it fellas but unless we're going to start taking skiffle into account, we may want to start at the 60's.
