Funny, I don't like many groups from the US.

Oh yeah. Feist is also awesome...saw her last fall.

If we're talking absolute favourites, however...

I helped plant lettuce today with a guy who went to university in Athens. REM did come up at one point.

OOh do i have to choose only one? There are a few I can't decide between but I'm going to say Oingo Boingo... or maybe The Talking Heads. Runners up: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Aerosmith, The Doors, The Ramones, I have too many. (Elvis, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.. OOH and Prince )

Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

My country doesn't exactly churn out a lot of superstars... We do have our very own Coldplay rip-off band, though! Civil Twilight.

Maybe Cold Chisel/Jimmy Barnes. Cut Copy's new album is promising after 2 listens though.

It's not necessarily a given. Hothouse Flowers, Christy Moore, Boomtown Rats, Undertones.....

Hmm....it's kinda sad because my favorite bands of all time are U2, Radiohead, Genesis, Muse, The Police (1/3 american?), Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, AC/DC, and so on....
So as far as the USA goes....I guess it's a tie between Bruce Springsteen and the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam comes in 3rd

Uh, probably Icehouse or something. Or Midnight Oil, or Master's Apprentices... can we claim Crowded House? No? I'm not really huge on Australian music.
