On balance I'd say USA actually, if I could include Canada in that too. 'North American'

Elvis, Bob Dylan, REM, Motown, Detroit stuff, Hip-hop, Jazz, Roots, Grunge...

I think too many people are choosing this based on U2+Beatles vs NSync. Not a true reflection. There are some GREAT US bands around now.

I vote for British and Irish but only like 1% more than American because the only big fuck up in the British music is the amount of male bands with five or six boys standing crooning their fucking arses off about how much they 'wanna fucking treat you right' and thats just not fucking on.... however America has to me popped out of its birth canal some really wicked groups, etc.....and they are fucking fantastic to hear.......

so like........
