The majority of my favourite acts either come from Ireland, Britain or America.

Not part of the Anglosphere, but I still felt it was appropriate to name Sweden as a country for great death and melodic metal, which much of it is in English.

Well scandanavian countries and The Netherlands can both speak English as far as I know, both being taught it as children.

And let's not forget Canada also has French language music.

All of the country speaks English and to a high standard?

And most places in Asia don't speak English that much.

Malaysia drops English language teaching | World news | guardian.co.uk

some news report said we're the best in English speakers in Asia, since Singapore is too small to count

the Philippines would come close as well

It may be the best in Asia by that standard but still not as high a standard as the places I mentioned I think where I understand that English is taught on an equal level with the native language and has been for a long time.

I don't really like these questions to be honest. It instigates nationalism in people. Or at least an artificial sense of pride in where you are from. It kind of contradicts everything music is for me, something universally human and empathetically beautiful and because of that, I think categorising who is better at making music is a little childish ( not targeting the thread maker or anyone in this thread at all). I just think music means more than this.
