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, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Muse, queen, iron maiden, rolling stones, should I say more?

United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states.

since earliest time, USA has given great type of music; and it still is giving it.

Britain created rock and metal, America improved upon it and made it was it is today. Black Sabbath and the Who laid the foundation, for metal, then guitarists like Randy Rhoads and Eddie Van Halen created a new lead style, along with singer like Ronnie James Dio making it was it is. Motorhead laid the foundation fro thrash metal, and the Bay Area too it to the extreme and made it great. Thank You Britain, for creating America as well as rock, but God Bless America. You have made rock and the world great.

How can Germany be second

Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

Quite a few internationally successful bands for such a small country.
However they take the Eurovision song contest far too seriously.

Sweden has given many rock/metal artists: Yngwie Malmsteen, Sonic Syndicate, Arch Enemy, Blindside, Dark Tranquility, Jerusalem...

The only band that comes into my mind is Opeth.

The hives yay the hives from Sweden

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.

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

Rammstein is the best one, helloween is just great, Germany has his own genre of music Neue Deutsche Härte... Fun doesn't finish here the best of all are the big four of German thrash Kreator, Sodom, Destruction and Tankard

Rammstein, Blind Guardian, Kreator and Halloween just in metal...

Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.

I'm from america and I say that when looking at Finland. We don't have anything that even touch the epic levels of Nightwish and Sonata Arctica.

Sorry to my fellow Americans but Nirvana and Blink-182 Can't even compete.

Finnish bands are too good. You can listen to bands like poets of the fall
Or rasmus or many they have got talent.

The best here is Children of Bodom, other great bands are Hanoi Rocks and Nightwish

Nightwish, CoB, Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, Korpiklaani, Ensiferum, Charon, Finntroll, Amberian Dawn, Amorphis, Norther, Turisas, Wintersun, Moonsorrow, Northern Kings, Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, Tarot, Indica, Poets of the Fall.. Need I say more

Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, more.

Sum41. Nickelback, Billy Talent, Alexisonfire and much more bands in Canada to mention with good music.

Rush is the best here, other greats bands are Neil Young, Anvil, Exciter, Helix, Nickelback, Steppenwolf...

Well all I can say is that there are so many great music talents that have come out of Canada, that I wouldn't be able to refer to all of them.

Arcade dire and Broken Social scene, that's enough to put Canada in the top 3

Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

Most black metal bands are norwegian, being Gorgoroth and Mayhem the most popular.

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.

Daft punk. That’s all I have to say

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.

Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

More quality bands than any other countries on this list except maybe the you. K., France, and America.

Denmark gave us Mew, and I honestly believe they're one of the best bands of all time.

Don't forget Mercyful Fate and Volbeat!

Mercyful Fate, King Diamond, Artillery

The Contenders

Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Australia has some of the most iconic songs coming from Hunters and collectors, Men at work, Mental as anything, Jets, Gangajang, Daddycool, Cold chisel and Australian Crawl. I could go on.

AC/DC is the best from here
other great bands are: Mortification, Wolfmother, Rose Tattoo, Parkway Drive, I Killed the Prom Queen...

Tame Impala, Pond, Bee Gees, Mink Mussel Creek, GUM, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, etc.

Not whole a lot of big names but the average band is highly talented and creative

Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

A great variety of rock music, but English language is more popular than portuguese, so some translation needed!

Sepultura.'enough said


Our rock it's authentic and good, but few bands play in english and it's not too popular right now.

My suggests :
Massacration (it's comic but it's good)
Mamonas assassinas (it's comic but it's good)
Legião Urbana
Raul seixas

Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America.

Patricio Rey, La Bersuit, Soda Stereo, Rata Blanca, Attaque 77, Pappo's Blues, Calamaro, Spinetta, Charly Garcia, Los Piojos, La Renga, Divididos, Los Tipitos, Los autenticos decadentes, Siu Generis, Las Pelotas, Fito Paez, Almafuerte, Los abuelos de la Nada, No te va a gustar, Los fabulosos Cadillacs, Las Pastillas Del Abuelo, La Mosca, Sumo, Carajo, La vela Puerca, La 25, Kapanga, Hermetica

Like that unknown genius that never had the chance, if only these bands could have the media support to be listened around the world! Give a try dear reader and be my guest in YouTube following the guide above. You'll be not dessapointed.

Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

The good thing are the bands like Juan Dela Cruz and Eraserheads, other than that it's none

Why the hell is Philippines higher than Aus? And just why is it here in this list?

WE got lot of kick ass music in here bruh,

In philippines are more on nah.

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.

12012, Abingdon Boys School, Beat Crusaders, BORN, Bump of Chicken, D'espairsRay, Dir En Grey, DOES, the GazettE, Girugamesh, Green, Maximum the Hormone, Miyavi, MUCC, Nightmare, Orange Range, -OZ-, Penpals, the Pillows, Radwimps, Uverworld, Yuki Kajiura.

The Visual Kei scene isn't restricted by genre. Bands and Singers are mostly free to experiment. I think they have some of the best musicians in the world and for the most part, you'll never get bored listening to a band's discography. Styles vary so much, you won't find yourself thinking that you've been listening to the same over and over again. So refreshing.

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


a lot of bands...ich liebe dieses Land

Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately more.

And Riverside!

Behemoth, Vader, KAT, Coma, Bloodthirst, Christ Agony... This is music from Poland!

We like Pooland, but India has more poo but not in the loo.

Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

Duman and manga are amazing

Turkey has great bands like maNga and Mor Ve Otesi

Mor ve Otesi and Bulutsuzluk Ozlemi are easily two of the best bands ever

You must listen Duman, Teoman and Sebnem Ferah!
I'm from Holland but I think they are OK.

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.

I would say third after United Kingdom and USA. U2, Thin Lizzy, Pogues among best in the world

The script is amazing

U2 is a great band!

Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Western Europe bordered by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg. A small and densely populated country, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometers (11,787 square miles) and has a population of more than 11 million.
Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

Yes, my country sure has really good music artists. But the problem is you can't find most of the albums, singles, songs etc. here. Plus no online platform exists here. It's just new generation's have to listen to pirated songs. Believe me I would've love to listen to the music of my country. But this is not for us.

Should be in top 10

Bangladesh should be in top 10.
This country went throug a band music revolution in 70s and 80s and has world class bands.

We have artcell, warfaze, LRB, miles, orthohin, sironamhin and much more bands. they are so. talented

Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

great bands in Spanish like: Rata Blanca, Tierra Santa, Mago de Oz, Hombres G...

Dude... Rata Blanca is Argentinian...

Vetusta morla, heroes del silencio, izal, extremoduro

South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Korean Pop Wave continues to grow & succeed because younger fans around the world appreciate it. This should be on top 10 because lots of boy bands, girl groups, coed groups & rock bands gained their fame to success!

Why is korea 27 th place it also will came first

FT ISLAND is one of the absolute greatest rock bands in my opinion. Some of the best vocals I’ve ever heard. Day6, Say Yes, and CN Blue are also very good.

no...really schould be first

Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.
Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

While not really "best", this country is underrated in terms of music. It has a lot of great bands that are simply unknown to westerners because of language barrier.

Russian rock and metal bands have one of the best lyrics. Unfortunately, to appreciate it you have to understand Russian.

Check out Dvar and Angel Dust Dealers, this bands are incredible.

This guys have their unique style.
