I like radio head.
Love Muse are they British?
One album I've played to death is savage garden (the first one) from Australia, on topic of that nation I loved INXS

My favourite singers are Robert Plant, Darren Hayes and MJ in that order


Btw I just remembered Rod Stewart is another Brit to boast about!

Great stuff, but to me the USA equals freedom.

Nobody else can say that.

You can speak your mind.
Try it elsewhere.

Even if sometimes misdirected, they sent their sons to die for others.

Who else had that courage?

Without the bravery of the USA the world would be Hitler or Mao.

Maybe not the government, but the people of the US are my heroes and heroines.

If I could I would be proud to be in your ranks.
World-class.

Man, American culture was so cool. Form the haircuts and clothing of the 50's, the music, the cars, how people got together.. The 60's were cool.. the seventies ... all the way into the 90's.. then I don't know what happened.

Corporate take-over?

Good thing that.

Better than socialism.

Does anyone remember a socialist state?
I do.
And it sucked big time.

What American culture? XD

Seriously though, outside of highly localized ones such as Cajun, Creole, and Amish (if you consider a religious lifestyle a culture) there isn't much here that is unique. We have some epically artery-clogging food, but then again, we're not exactly alone here. I've cooked a great deal of East European meals for a change of pace and/or ingredient simplicity. We learned "Heart Attack on a Plate" from the Old Countries, people.

Edit: Hit post too early somehow. Between the occasional oddity in music & clothing, both of those are not unique in quantity (or quality) to the US in origin, and a number of sports are imported & bastardized. See baseball's history as an example (rounders, lmao)

I greatly dislike the American culture of fear that started during the cold war and never really stopped

Well, my Sister in Law is American and I've been over to the US (and all over) so know the culture is diverse and variable. Many people stereotype Americans to their discredit. However, apart from the crap telly, lack of historical buildings, poor politics and insularity, the US and Americans are OK.

Perhaps the indicator of American culture (or Western culture for that matter) is the vast numbers of people who want to emigrate. You don't get many Americans or Europeans emigrating to Iran, Russia or China, but you get lots of people trying to leave those crappy places.

Those Americans (including some on ATS) who constantly complain about where they live should travel a bit. Travel broadens the mind.

Buncha old farts in here talking about old fart music. The Beatles were from my moms generation. So were The Who, Zep, etc. LOL.....yes, they were great....but hell, so was Mozart. How far back do we wanna talk? I hear that there are some pretty amazing Indian chants in the plains indians.



Tool. Tool is from the US. So we win. And if Canada wants to talk, they get minus 1000 internets for giving the world Justin Bieber.

Nah, all Canada's musical abortions are erased by the existence of the mighty, the wonderful, the outrageous and fantastic Devin Townsend. A nation which produces such a mind can do no wrong in my book. Love that fellows music so much!

Ok fine. That's news to me.
Strawberry fields, Eleanor Rigby and penny Lane had a real Brit feel to them.
I'm just biased I guess,
dam I forgot Queen , Uriah Heep!
Forgot Pink Floyd as well




Lyrics don't matter, the message theme and tone is what they took from the blues. The blues are all about taking your life's experiences and grooving them into and emotional expression through the music.


However The Blues had both African and European roots.

Everything goes around in circles.

I revisited this thread because I noticed I had a notice in my inbox about it... Then I saw this. Right on dude!

Listening to 10,000 days right meow..

Tool is definately one of the most influential bands in my life.. But that's just my generation ..
But in all seriousness a little more respect for the Beatles and Zep might be a good idea..
