hmmm that's very true.
I think things just work slower here in the US.and People don't really notice good music.Probally cus the US is a really big country tho.so mabe thats why.IDK?

Well look at bands like The libertines , Razorlight , The kooks , The View , Franz Ferdinand , Kasabian . The Strokes are treated like stars over here but if they were english it would of been insane , people would of treated them like gods ,they would of been forced to put out 5 singles an album and be on telly all the time, Is this it would of probably sold 10m records or summat.

[quote="mattymattymatty"]Im english but i think America has produced most of the best bands of the 00s barring the arctic monkeys . The problem is because indie music is so popular over here is that an english band can put put out a fairly mediocre debut album and gain quite alot of fame off of it , which brings money , arrogance , girls , drugs ect . I think amercan bands probably have to work harder in a way. Plus over here its all very bandwagonish everybody is just looking for the next trend.[/quote]

I don't think europeans in general have a better taste in music than americans, I think it's just british people. Trust me, I'm an european, but I'm not british.

Yeah Same here! Its just that a lot of Americans have really bad taste in music.It sucks! haha

And I'm still mad about Pitchfork! 5.2!?!? :shock:

The Strokes are a lot more popular in Europe too. I'll take the Europeans' taste in music over ours any day of the week :roll:

It's so funny how the British/Europeans go crazy for the Strokes/Julian but not so much in the Us.. very strange.
