You british have disrespected your selfs, led zeppelin is by far the best in the world they speak to my soul and im American. and at the end of this song hey hey what can i do. robert plant says," im going to leave her with the guitars playing". That verse gives me chill sometimes when i hear it.



Though being American to the heart you gotta love blood sweat and tears



The eagles



lynard skynard



bob dylan



the list goes on and on. But being that led zeppelin seemingly sings about my life im gonna have to say the british got something, limey pasty or not they can jam and go for a cup of tea.

I did have second thoughts of mentioning Def Leppard but hey they are massive over in the US. Im not a fan tbh
.

For me, this is one of the best songs ever. from my favorite band of all time.
Pink Floyd - Shine on You crazy Diamond

Let me just say I'm glad we have each other to bounce off of. Both great music and crap from both camps. Honestly, I grew up on the British invasion stuff. But I have been wondering...

Nooks and crannies, or crooks and nannies? hmm,,,,

so what blues came from southern usa .

doesn't matter where styles come from what matters is how people play the music


If you want to talk blues let's bring out a couple of the masters.

Cool thread. Overall I think that it's fairly even as to which country produces better bands and music.

I've read every post in this thread and I can't believe that nobody has mentioned one of the greatest bands ever to walk the Earth.

Well I like funk, soul, disco and house music all of which is done best by Americans and has influenced British music and culture more than we like to admit.

At the moment neither country seems to be providing anything fresh.


I think the biggest act on the Disco scene would have been in fact British. Ladies and Gentleman i give you:-

Ohhh, American vs British music.......That is a close one for me. Im American.....
I would have to say American music, we did create the grunge genre.

Here is my input.....Listen if you want, just some of my favorites from both sides of the pond.

These are all excellent songs (to me) that you don't hear very often.

American:
Who cant love this song???



UK:
Awesome song by the kinks.


American:
One of my favorites by Skynyrd.


UK:
The cars....


American and UK collaboration the Traveling Willburys: Tom petty, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Jim Keltner.

50 year of music, and yet you go back to the past, really shows what has happened in 50 years...... should pick tracks now current and compare with music on both sides of the pond, with the exception of a few artist on both sides that actually know how to write music sing and play and instrument.

MUSIC F ING SUCKS NOW

artist my ass these people just buy other peoples music now not even knowing what the subject matter is, thats why half these artist or more have albums that make no f ing sense what so ever because they didnt come from their own lives........ the whole recording industry is a scam just like the boy band phase, its all become to commercialized that as soon as one artist pop up that even remotely sounds different , bam 5 weeks later there are 5 bands just as big putting out just as much crap as there was, not to mention all they do in songs now is repeat chorus over and over and over (but with no actual chorus) and the same damn beats over and over in every single song. dont believe me? start counting how many artist say the same damn phrase over and over and over to stretch the song out..... its like putting fluff in your essay at school to make sure you got the correct page count minimum lol. its pathetic.

like half the morons from the singing show, that get contracts all the music is crap, the singers dont produce art, the produce what ever is put in front of them , then have someone remix it 500 times.

Guns and Roses are great? Really? Who knew covering other people's songs makes a great band....

Seriously, they were fun. Slash is a fantastic guitarist. But really, all they are is the greatest Cover Band ever, nothing more.

Larvae eaten by some tribes in the rain forests or a cheeseburger, which is better by any one single definition. It all comes down to taste and what someone is a costumed to. It is a futile question that usually only ends in disagreement and criticism of another custom's in taste.

In a radio interview John Lennon was once asked "Who is the best rock vocalists"?
His answer. Noddy Holder.

Noddy Hodler - awesome voice, and a really nice bloke, funny as heck too.

Slade were a great band too, but best watched with your eyes closed
hideous clothes and that


ETA: Vic Reeves' and BobMortimer do Slade just perfect






they have the accents down pat - i went to the same primary school as Noddy, only about 20 years after him
