A little from column A, a little from column B...

But my three favoritest bands are all from Europe (U2, Manics, and Placebo). I also have a soft spot in my heart for Welsh bands in particular (Manics, Stereophonics, People in Planes).

Like Zooters, I'll consult my top 30.

North American

Broken Social Scene
Death Cab For Cutie
The Flaming Lips
Bright Eyes
Sufjan Stevens
Iron & Wine
Bob Dylan
The Decemberists
Ryan Adams
The Arcade Fire
Secret Machines
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Pete Yorn
The Killers
My Morning Jacket
The White Stripes
Gnarls Barkley


The Beatles
Damien Rice
Sigur Ros (I guess Iceland counts, sort of)
Snow Patrol
Nick Drake
Thom Yorke

It definitely looks like I lean more towards North America. Despite that, my top 4 most listened to artists are European.

Mine's almost the exact opposite of yours, imp13!

Pink Floyd
Echo & The Bunnymen
Roger Waters
The Beatles
The Clash
Joy Division
Nick Drake
Chris de Burgh
The Alan Parsons Project
Frédéric Chopin
Sigur Rós
Bloc Party
Franz Ferdinand
The Police

North American:
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Howard Shore
Modest Mouse
The Doors
Don McLean
The Arcade Fire
Wolf Parade
Danny Elfman
Broken Social Scene
Simon & Garfunkel

Definitely more European (especially UK) heavy. And seven of my top ten are from England.

I think mine's a healthy mix of both...

more European, most of which is British. I do listen to some American & Canadian bands though... probably 2/3 or 3/4 European at the moment.

I'll jump on the " top thirty" bandwagon, though it's a bit out of date. Some bands have high playcounts just from when I didn't have so much music on my computer, while many bands I like and nowadays play much more (such as those I mentioned in reply to U2Man) haven't had a chance to reach the top thirty yet.

Porcupine Tree
Joy Division
Pink Floyd
Pure Reason Revolution
The Shadows
Circus Maximus
Dire Straits
The Verve

North American
Dream Theater
Spock's Beard
Symphony X
The Devin Townsend Band

New Zealand
Crowded House
Split Enz
The Chills
Neil Finn
Tim Finn, Bic Runga, Dave Dobbyn
Finn Brothers

Orphaned Land

Even New Zealand's outdoing North America.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Bono blows it out his arse. He is still Irish though. I really hope you dont beleive everything that man says.

My music is mostly Australian, then Pommie, then rest of the world.

well my favourite artists are U2, the beatles, the smiths, kings of leon, chilli peppers, arcade fire, the rakes, the strokes, the streets, bowie, take that, the cure, royksopp and the rolling stones so i think european wins that for me.

Mainly British although Royksopp are scandinavian (can't remember which country they're from though)

Depends on my mood, but it seems to be that I generally listen to European music more often.
