Is there a definitive answer to the question? Or is it too close to call? Being British i would have to say British music has been the best over the last 50 years, but hey American music is right up there also.
Here are my 3 selections as to why i call it for Britain:-







So come on you Americans let me here you call it for The US.

The only way you could get anyone with a sense of real music to listen to that would be to lock them in a padded cell in a straight jacket?
And what's with the racist crap?

This is about bands that actually have talent. You you can tell this by the way they play instruments.

Oh, I see all your posts have actually been about guitar, unfortunately, music isn't all about guitar.

I am a guitar player myself, but i also broaden my tastes.

Far too many giants of the music industry from both countries to definitively state which country has produced the best,better to celebrate the differences in the good music that has come from BOTH nations.

Hah! Dubstep...You're a comedian.

Asking that question is, to me, like asking me to pick my favorite fried chicken. I don't care who makes it, as long as it's good.(and good is subjective)

The Who
Band of Horses
We Were Promised Jetpacks
Simon and Garfunkle
Joy Division
Beck
Sigur Ros
Tom Waits

Why compare, just enjoy!

What are you on??

On topic, it's a toss up from me. Soo much good music has come from both sides of the big pond over the past half-century.

I'm not going to post any videos. Instead I'll simply state a fact. Both forms of music are symbiotic and very much reliant upon one another...

Early immigrants to the US brought with them the music of the British Empire. That music was infused with, and influenced by African and Spanish music in the new world. This mish-mash gave rise to musical variants including bluegrass, gospel, jazz, the blues, country, and early rock and roll.

Jazz, the blues, and early rock influenced the original British invasion. That influenced the next American wave, which, in turn, influenced the second British invasion... and so forth.

In summary... go buy a Robert Johnson anthology and you'll be at the source for the modern. If you want to go further back? Sea shanties and ancient folk music!


FTR: Black Sabbath... that is all.

hard to say I don't think it is really fair to say who is better on what side of the Atlantic .
two of my favorite bands






Also I do love pink floyd





However I lean towards the this side of the Atlantic metal music sounds funny over there

Totally agree Mate, I was compiling a list from both countries when I read your post, and that is it in a nutshell.
Most of early US music has elements of older British mixed with African and South American rhythyms.
The Brits heard this and that's what the kids of the early 60's wanted to hear. Its been back and forwards ever since.
Music when played by musicians with instruments is what I enjoy most in life, I am sorry to an earlier poster I just
cant get into computer generated music as it has no soul.

Lemmy and Slash are local gods along with robby williams (for the ladies) but generally i'd say each generation influences the next so without the beatles/stones we wouldn't have other bands which would of influenced current bands today

I am surprised no one from England posted the greatest rock band of all time which is from England.



Shame on you all.

You have to remember that Britain was the birth place of Metal. Birmingham England to be exact.

To Chrysalis, Here's a compromise,

One of the best American folk singers, Conor Oberst, dubstepped, with footage of one of the best ever British bands, Joy division ...



Peace.
