The u.s. probably has the most good music, but the percentage of good to bad is probably better anywhere hip-hop is not as popular. I think Scotland has the highest proportion of good music.

Not a bad list is it? U.K for me!
In terms of quality, UK definitely wins in my book.


Lets not forget-

Genesis
King Crimson
Porcupine Tree
The Moody Blues
Radiohead
The Fall
Coldplay
Placebo
Motorhead
The Clash
Wire
Nick Drake
Muse
Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Camel
Gentle Giant
Caravan
Venom

Actually, ill take UK just for its 70s prog. alone I much prefer the popular music there as well than the ones in the US.
And not to forget sweden along, just for its quality in terms of modern metal.

Meshuggah
Opeth
Pain Of Salvation
Dismember
Dissection
Sacramentum
At the Gates
Dark Tranquility
InFlames
Soilwork
Bathory
Bloodbath
Katatonia
Candlemass
Amon Amarth
Marduk
Diabolical Masquerade
Arckanum

I could just go on, but ill stop for now. US comes in 3rd i guess.
And Queen, and The Police/sting, Dire Strait, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode and....


It's UK hands down.

^^^

To be fair we don't have a leg to stand on regarding Jazz, Blues etc.

America provided the base sauce for virtually all modern music but the U.K filled the pot with all sorts of ingredients that enhanced the stew. Terrible analogy I know but it's the best I can come up with.

Any self respecting music fan cannot deny the massive impact of American music on modern music but I still maintain that our musical heritage is hugely influential. Outside of Germany regarding Electronic music, very few nations have spat out such a diverse set of sounds with that much longevity.
