I was wondering what fellow ATS/BTS members think about british music, and how it seems that the best stuff is coming out of there.

I mean think about all the great bands that have come out of there:

Beatles
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
The Who
Coldplay
Radiohead

There are many more. Has anyone ever noticed this? or is it just me.
It seems their pop culture is also very different than ours. We have Britney spears and they have radiohead. I want our pop culture to be like theirs.

i have found someone from across the pond who has realised this!

big yourself up LuDa. i have been saying this for ages. you guys would like some of the stuff we get over here

i'll name a few that are good at the moment

Kasabian
Franz Ferdinand
The Music
The Zoutons

and thats just a couple that i can think of right now

others also worth a mention are

ozzy osbourne
red hot chilli peppers
Prodigy

of course we still get Spears and Aguilera, but it's balanced by some decent tunes

if you want to hear the Official UK Chart Show, the address is below

www.bbc.co.uk...

the show is broadcast on radio, DAB and the net, on Sunday 16.00-19.00 GMT, but i think you may be able to listen to the show again on the website if you miss it

Yeah like half of my music collection is from UK and I'm from the US... I love The Beatles, The Who, and other bands from the UK.

Yes of course this is true.

THe most inovative, most important, most notable and most popular band in teh entire world ever originated from my country! The Beatles.

The chilli peppers are american.

I saw them live.

Beside the point.

But yes this is very true.

The greatest and the great bands ceom rfrom the UK.

not forgetting

Happy Mondays

Echo and the Bunnymen

The Stranglers

and the legendary David Bowie.

really the list would be endless. Apart from the England team playing football the only other thing that makes my patriotic pride swell is our music.

i would say the brits have ruled the music scene worldwide since the 60s and i cant see that changing in the future.

we rock.

Led Zeppelin ripped off some of the greatest 30s blues musicians without ever giving credit where it was due.

Psychedelia was an American phenomenon commercialized in the UK with Pink Floyd and The Beatles being late entrants.

Never underestimate the contributions of The Stooges or The Thirteenth Floor Elevators.

Music knows no national boundaries - why subject it to parochialism like everything else?

All quality bands there (check my avatar!). A few more cracking new british bands are:

Razorlight
Babyshambles
Libertines
Kaiser Cheifs
Dead 60's
The Ordinary Boys


There's also a fair amount of good music coming from the other side of the pond too, with the Killers, Futureheads, The Bravery.

With all the good music coming out at the minute, it feels like the best time for music since the mid 90's!
