You are way off. While the UK may have had the greatest band with the Beatles, the US has more. Most of the greatbands are from the US, but some of
the greatest are fron the UK during the two british invasions.
Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, Black Sabbath, T Rex, The Smiths, The Cure, Tears for Fears, and The Clash.
The Beach Boys, Byrds, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Tommy James and the Shondells, The Four Seasons, Bruce Springsteen, Buddy Holly and the
Crickets, Talking Heads, Ramones, Wilco, Nirvana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Velvet Underground, The Stooges, The Doors, Grateful Dead, the
Replacements, the Flaming Lips, the Pixies, Frank Zappa and the mothers of invention, the Strokes, and you coukd possibly include Elvis when he was
with a band.
And nowadays it seems the UK is really not producing many great bands (with the exception of the arctic monkeys). The US is pouring out great bands
now. I would say we are sending you guys more artists nowadays. MGMT, Arcade Fire, and so on.
