Countries With the Most Popular Music


The Top TenXW

1United KingdomThe United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. The UK is well known for ancient and modern literature, its influence in world music, its historical more.

Ahh... It's un-debatable. Take, for example the Beatles, the most influential pop-rock group of ALL TIME and STILL WILL ALWAYS BE! I also love Dire Straits, the Gallaghers (Or they might be Irish... )etc. I hate American Artists such as Madonna and Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus... It can clearly be seen by the producers that they don't know anything about music.

Undeniably the best; the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Dire Straights, the Animals, the Rolling Stones, Queen, there really cannot be a debate about this. Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, Peace, Wild Beasts, Foals, and I'm sure they're a lot of things I don't listen to, having the selective taste that I do. Sure, I'm sure America produces more music by volume, having 5 times the population and all, but for quality and how influential it is, the UK surely takes the lead.

British Music IS the best. Seriously. The Beatles, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Dire Straights, the Animals, The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, Peace, Wild Beasts, Foals, Coldplay, Take That, Adele, Robbie Williams, the list goes on. - Claw

One #direction. Any more words needed?

Our music spreads rapidly throughout the world while I haven't heard most small songs from other countries. Our music is automatically known while other countries need to make their known to get it to many other places. And we all know America is definition of awesome!

Our music has spread to so many parts of the world and inspired a lot of British artist to imitate American artists. Lets Michael Jackson. King of pop. He is known all over the world. Not to mention Eminem who has gotten the attention of a lot of Europeans because they've never heard of a white rapper. US has best music hands down

We have the biggest-selling music of all's not an opinion, it's a fact. The 3 biggest selling songs of all time are American. It's wonderful here, not only is the music great, but the artists are great too. Good songs are everywhere. Just ignore the trash...there's some in every country! - emraldYE

I voted for the USA because the most popular artists come from there... And my number one music artist, dancer and entertainer, the great and wonderful Michael Jackson comes from the USA! He is the best entertainer of all time.! Enough said.. - Michaelthebest

9IrelandFormed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

U2, The cranberrys, Sinead o connor, boomtown rats, the frames, thin lizzy, snow patrol, the undertones, damian rice, westlife, to name but a few, we can claim at bit of other uk acts as well with irish blood - liam and noel gallagher,

South Korea no 5 ha ha yeah I'm sure

Ireland should be 3rd on the list- they gave the world U2 for cryin out loud. That band is the second biggest band of all time after The Beatles. Thin Lizzy, Sinead O'Connor, The Cranberries, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Enya all enjoyed huge success in America and throughout the World. The Pogues - Fairytale of New York still gets into UK chars some 27 years after its release, a bona fide classic. Pop music from the likes of Boyzone, Westlife, country from Danie O'Donnell, and indie from My Bloody Valentine.

No one accept Indians understand Indian music..

J-pop is simply under-rated.. Mostly because anyone who seems to like anything about Japan gets to be called a weeaboo... Ok, now, I personally love Japanese music, and recommend it to anyone who likes music itself.. P.S. - it's funny how Japan dint make it to d top ten with Korea at 3... (you'll understand dis if u know d Eastern pop music history)...

Everybody knows OPM a lot because it adds drama to each and every song. Upbeat OPM is bothered by certain foreign acts but an OPM songs that can only be sung is purely on top notch!
