Atlanta? Hell no. There are probably more good bands coming out of London or New York in a year than have ever come out of Atlanta.

Why are New York winning so heavily? I really can't think of THAT many great bands to come out of NYC..

Are you kidding? There are a TON of great bands from NYC. And that goes back a good 70-80 years, from the recent Brooklyn indie scene to the birth of hip-hop in the Bronx to all the way back to the jazz age in Harlem.

Off the top of my head I can think of Sonic Youth, I'm either having a mental block (which is more than likely the case.) But I don't think I have THAT many bands from NYC, then again a lot of American bands I like I'm not sure of where they're from, because it doesn't mean as much to me as it does when the band is British..

Music of New York City

Some of my favorite New York bands: Velvet Underground, Silver Apples, Television, Modern Lovers, Suicide, Sonic Youth, Swans, No Wave scene, Laurie Anderson, Glenn Branca, Ut, Liars and many more. So yeah, New York for me.

Well there's a pretty good chance if it's American indie/garage rock/whatever from the past decade or so it's from New York for starters.

Woah, woah, woah. Easy there. Modern Lovers are from my hometown of Boston. Let's give credit where credit is due.

Didn't realise they had a good garage rock scene, if you can call it a scene.. I love the raw energetic sound, but I don't have enough garage rock as I should have. I may have to look at some great NYC garage rock bands later when I'm not in work. Any stand out NYC garage rockers that are a must hear? I think I definitely need to improve my collection of music from NYC, at the moment it looks a bit flimsy.

Oh, yes Whenever I think of Television, Modern Lovers immediately come to my mind, so I always put them together. Silly me.
