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.

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
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
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...
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
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
Most black metal bands are norwegian, being Gorgoroth and Mayhem the most popular.
Mayhem, Burzum, Dimmu Borgir, Emperor, Immortal, Windir, Gorgoroth.
A-HA are from Norway (Famous for Take on Me)
Proud norwegian american and the rap here is amaziinng
Lacuna Coil, Rhapsody of Fire, Macbeth and so on...
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.
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
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
A great variety of rock music, but English language is more popular than portuguese, so some translation needed!
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)
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

Callejeros, La Renga, Rata Blanca, Attaque 77, Soda Stereo, Los Piojos, Los Autenticos Decadentes...
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.
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 soloist.so nah.
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
After Forever, Within Temptation
Eddy Van Halen
Armin van buuren
Stars on 45
2 brothers on the fourth floor
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.
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.
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!
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
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
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
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.
