sorry for leaving out the rest of the world here, but i do believe that most globally popular bands come from these parts.

European, mostly British bands, mostly bands from Northern England and, , mostly bands from... Lancashire ...



Nearly all the music I listen to is from European bands.

European mostly. I enjoy bands such as U2, Radiohead, Coldplay and Oasis, to name a few.

But there are good Canadian groups out there that I like as well: Our Lady Peace, The Tragically Hip and, of course, Arcade Fire.

The only American band I ever really listened to regularly was Aerosmith a few years ago.

Let's see... out of my Top 10 on last.fm:

AMERICAN/CANADIAN
Pearl Jam
REM
Tori Amos
RHCP

EUROPEAN
U2
The Beatles
Oasis
Keane
Pink Floyd
Radiohead

More European I think.

although, U2 may as well qualify as American!

Mostly European, and within Europe mostly British.

Same here. There just seems to be more diverse stuff coming out of the UK lately (and by lately, I mean in the last year or two).

Primarily European, especially the UK and Scandinavia. I suppose that comes with the territory when you're a prog/metal fan.

I also listen to a fair bit of New Zealand goodness.
