i'm not arguing its contribution, but that inundation has some adverse effects... i'm primarily referring to sopsych's comment essentially stating that if it's not famous in america, it doesn't belong in this thread.
well if you're only referring to that, then i'll agree with you but most of his comments have been pretty trollish in nature so i don't give them much value.

there's a lot of **** that comes out of America, but it's also responsible for countless contributions to artistic medium. would Country, Blues, Jazz, Rock n' roll, and Rap exist without America? Can't say for certain, but it certainly does exist because of America.

If you're going to take shots at me, get out of my thread.

I stand by what I said about those two artists. I looked them up before I even commented, and they don't seem to have had major media attention or major success anywhere. One UK album chart notwithstanding. I suppose an artist who is a household name in just English-speaking Europe would count as "famous" by my definition, but I don't think many Brits in any age group know who Ben Howard is either. (By the way, fame is only moderately connected to caliber of music. If he's great, maybe he eventually will qualify for this kind of discussion.) I don't mind a few little-known artists being mentioned in this thread, but there have been more than a few.

and now i'm exiting the scene, as resistance to taking shots at your dominant attitude will likely prove to be a futile endeavour!

I for one don't care if he's telling me to get out of his thread. People who police their own threads but in reality have no authority are the worst. I will stop posting in your thread, sopych, when I feel like it.

I think to understand America one has to know and appreciate the contributions of different people and groups that make up America. I think it wouldn't be right to either underestimate or overblown to an extreme America's contributions to arts music and culture - not that it's all perfect.

Please remember that members probably aren't as hostile as they seem.

I think some type of Country would exist hypothetically if there wasn't an America. The majority of influences that make up Country and American Folk music comes from the British Isles, Western Europe and Scandanvia.

I was going to say music like Rock n Roll, Punk, Alt-Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, and hip hop are definitely America artforms. And things like Metal are also dependant on America.

Techno and Electronic kinda depend on Russia and Germany because of inventors like Lev Sergeyevich Termen and bands like Kraftwerk they were the ones who pioneered electronic instruments and music.
