most of those genres bore me to tears...
the only good punk band from the USA outside of new york i can think of off the top of my head is black flag...
im not bagging new york
my statement was limited to the rest of america which seems intent on producing ****ty hippie throwback music, corporate rock radio, insipid country, and horrendous hip hop.

of course there are exceptions
just not heaps...

and what is zydeco??


and with regards to my listening of sea shanties....what you got against sea shanties???
haha

For me, most of the music i like from the US are quite experimental in nature.
You know, stuff like Kayo Dot, Zappa, Thinking Plague, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Mr. Bungle, Agalloch, Neurosis, Sonic Youth, maudlin of the Well, Spastic Ink etc.

There's also Death/Thrash metal which has produced consistently good bands.

I would also agree that there are a lot of good jazz stuff.

But, TBH, I wouldn't be surprised if someone gets bored of this list.

I do like some bands from those, but i can see how someone can get bored of it as well. Really, there are a LOT of generic/boring stuff from that list coming from the US.
This is from my point of view though...might not apply for anyone else.

Jamaica should get a mention because reggae and ska took over the world. Not bad for a small island!

Wow. You just completely dismiss genres as broad as jazz with the wave of a hand. That's realy something.

It's a very broad list of genres. For someone to be bored of all the genres I listed is to be bored of the overwhleming majority of English language music of the past 50 years.
