Europe vs America

I read on many threads how some people in this forum (like DebbieSG and Flag Pole Pear) critic european musical taste. Are you serious or what?
What about that N' Synck rubbish that America loves?(here in Europe N' Synck doesn't sell one record!)
What about that crappy rap and rap\metal music that always dominates Billboard radio charts?
What about all that disgusting american pop stars like Britney and Christina Aguilera?
What about all that boring country music?
It's all american stuff!
I wrote about Creed just to understand why an american phenomenon didn't reach Europe, I'm not a Creed fan I just said that One last breath is a nice song.
America loves Creed not Europe!
Europe loves Coldplay, Radiohead and U2
Europe loves U2 much more than America
And remember U2 IS FROM EUROPE and U2 MUSIC IS EUROPEAN MUSIC!

Europe'smusical taste smoke North America's agreed but lets not forget all those British pop bands that multiplied like maggots a fw years ago and to my knowledge continue. Plus We can blame Europe for Eifle 64, or whatever they were called, I just hate that song blue. So Europe salso has its share of shite.

But being from Canada I like to think we've got better musical tastet than Americans, Nickleback and its ilk aside.

the top canadian performers are usually talented artists a la Blue Rodeo, Tragically Hip, OLP, Rheostatics, Rufus Wainwright

side note: only the first OLP cd is actually good. And it's pretty good

We have a couple boy bands and whatnot but they are not successful

Hello there Bastian
Just to clarify one thing, I sincerely doubt anyone whom you mentioned is treating this as a Europe Vs America thing. I thought the country of origin is really low on the list of pros and cons to these particular bands. Flag Pole Pear is just an outright Creed hater. Its got nothing to do with America, Europe, Canada or anywhere. If you want to understand why the Creed phenomenon has not reached Europe, yet is loved by America, here is really not the best place to ponder those questions. Not because no one has those answers, but more because this board is predominantly anti Creed - as much as it is anti pop (see: Christina, Britney etc.) To be honest, I cant imagine why anyone would rate a band simply because of their origin. Its not an anti Europe thing.
Also, just a suggestion, making this a personal thing about these people is not the best idea. Especially as Flag Pole Pear is not an American. He loves Radiohead and of course U2, so that negates the Europe/America thing right off. Threads like this will continue to close as posts are so vehement in their hate of Creed and such that it is impossible to keep them friendly and valid.
Dont be surprised if this is closed before or after a fight breaks out!

I don't base my like or dislike of any band or artist on what country they happen to be from. Good music is good music, period...end of story

There was a thing in the news a while back how there were no British bands in the american charts one week

Lots of our music sucks but I like it


And nobody buys N-sync records in Europe?!!? Yes they do.... I like Creed I like rap And how do you know america likes U2 less

How many records did David Hasselhoff sell in Europe? A ton. How many did he sell in America? Zip. Also, N'Sync and Backstreet Boy got their start touring Europe. I don't think America has better taste than Europe, both sides like crap cause good marketing works everywhere.
