America might have its share of revolutionary bands, and canada may have its fair share of overrated pop, but the UK is were everything started. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, Queen, and many other bands literally started the majority of music genres, and they all came from the UK. Radiohead, and Pink Floyd both practically recreated Alternative Rock, and the very Genres that are Metal, Hard rock, and Rock would not exist without the Rolling Stones The Beatles, and Led Zepplin. America might have Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, and Bob Dylan, but UK is the very basis of practically every genre of music. They influenced music from the beginning of the 1900s, and continue to influence it today. Face it people, without the UK We would just be without certain genres, we would simply be without music.

Elton John, David Bowie, Queen, Elvis Costello, Cat Stevens, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Electric Light Orchestra, Madness, The Jam, The Small Faces, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Fleetwood Mac, The Police, The Cure, Squeeze and Sade... And many many more! You just couldn't ask for more!

No, I can't stand One Direction. But, this is the birthplace of Queen. Who I will love forever. Freddie Mercury will stand forever in our hearts.

Punk was created, Rock was revolutionized, lets just say that the UK is where music is found in EVERY genre!

7IndiaIndia, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

There is no other country in the world is as talented as indians in music... I think India would be in the top because united kingdom, USA and others' singing style is like- wave your head and make a chorus, and it will be a music! They think so but the real is that music is a rhythm through which feelings are expressed and Indian music have done it... Indian music has no craziness like UK, USA and others but have the power of expressing real feelings...

If any superstar musician, band artist or singer can sing the Indian classical, Karnataki Sangeet, Dhrupads, bhatiali, vaoiya and many other Indian traditional music then I will never comment in this matter!

The above mentioned singing styles are the toughest of all types off singing! Michael Jackson, Enrique, Akon they will become speechless if they listen or try to sing this types of singing style...

But It was proved that Indians can easily sing the western music... It is not so tough but very easy!

India is the best. India make a music is heart touching music and I love Indian music and I love

Absolutely correct... Me too supporting this opinion!

Best in the whole world

The sad thing is that this kind of music is highly ignored because everyone looks at the high pitched music on the cover
Every country has great music but saying this music is annoying is shallow judgement

Japanese music can really affect somebody's emotions.
