U. S metal bands like Lamb of God, as I lay dying, death are my favorite of all time but a great tree needs a strong roots and you can't have groove metal or deathcore or any other subgenres without Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin or deep purple musically they were the original so I have nay must vote for this country.

The Beatles is my answer I rank UK as the #1 country with the best music bands.

How can Germany be second

Thank you for making System of a Down, slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold and more...

Without black American folk and blues there would be no rock and roll and, therefore, no hard rock, heavy metal and many other derivative genres. So, let's give it up for American bands! (P.S: I'm not American)

3 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

This question is very easy for me cause my favorite bands are from Germany. Tokio Hotel, Cinema Bizarre I mean what could be better than Germany Bands. Is sad that I'm far from the country cause I want to move there to live and I will get the chance to met more amazing music.

Thank you Germany, for Tokio Hotel, Cinema Bizarre, Rammstein, and Helloween but especially for Tokio Hotel

Rammstein and Helloween are just amazing

German 'music' consists mostly of Bavarians dressed in the lederhosen doing bizarre thigh slapping dances to oompah bands.
Please make them stop.

10 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

You think they are British or else but no they are French and girls: Imany, Marina Kaye, Jain, K-Reen, Kayna Samet, Joyce Jonhatan, Zaz...

Daft punk, Serge Gainsbourg, Edith piaf, Phoenix, M83, Mc Solaar, Suprême NTM, Air, 1995... France actually has had and still has wide variety of good artists.

As far as French bands go, well, pretty much everyone’s familiar with the likes of Daft Punk and Air and Justice (whose new album is out this week). But that’s not all there is to French music, y’know. The country has given rise to a number of fascinating musical movements over the years, from the modern chanson of the 1960s through the coldwave of the 1980s (check out this excellent compilation if that genre interests you, by the way) and the more recent explosion of French dance music.

The Contenders

11 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean . It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest . more.

People always vote for their own country, I am from the US, I think Japan has amazing talent. There best bands include the GazettE, X Japan, Versailles, Dir En Grey, Maximum the Hormone and MANY others. Please, give this country a chance, even though some of the bands are part of the Visual Kei scene which many foreigners don't understand, please look that up before criticizing. It's about the music, not the looks, and Japan has great rock and metal even though Jpop is more famous Jrock.

I might be wrong but I think that Japanese music (rock) is in a higher pitch than most but not too high. which is what I love about it.

The instrument is playing high note but in a metal kind of way and the singer voice is kinda high pitch, but it sounded great.

I love fairies band which is from Japan

I love OneOkRock!

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

At least third place. Amazing musical heritage. The rest of the world should feel lucky that the Irish stepped up to the mark, above and beyond that of such a small nation, as usual.

The script is amazing

U2 is a great band!

Walking on Cars, U2, The Script, Kodaline, the Coronas...
