I agree, grunge here in the US was of a much higher quality.

Grunge greatly enchanced the US music scene after the US went through a bad time music wise from the mid to late 1980s.

US only because I'm into the C&W scene, otherwise I would have put the UK for most other music especially the 60's and 70's.

I disagree. The mid to late 80s was a pretty good time period for music in the US. It was the era of hardcore, thrash and death metal. It saw the rise of great alternative rock (later killed, to an extent, by grunge) and the beginning of the golden age of hip-hop. Electronica was blooming, as was electro-industial, and those weird hybrid forms of roots music (as typified by everyone from Tom Wait to Michelle Shocked) really started to come into their own.

So you didn't love Slayer, Metallica or Guns n Roses then?

I had actually expanded on my comment above too, but I guess we cross-posted.
