There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.
To the idiot that complained about the stereotype that all the United States has is mainstream garbage and then did the same thing to Canada in the same comment, you obviously only know a few Canadian artists. What about Three Days Grace? Rush? Bryan Adams? Celine Dion? Tragically Hip? Don't complain about it if you're just gonna do the same thing!
But it is not in proportion cause maybe other countries have betters singers and songs but sometimes cause they sing in other language that's not English or the country is less populated they don't receive so much rename
Okay so we are in eight place and Canada a country that had hardly any involvement in the 80s and 90s that brought us Justin Bieber, nickleback and avril is ahead of us, yet the country (USA) THAT BROUGHT THE WORLD
Steve Millers band
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Cool in the Gang
Are we forgetting about the king of Pop, King of RnB, makers of Hip Hop, founders of some of the best bands, and what can Canada say? Laugh out loud they were saying Bryan Abams
USA may have garbage music now but back in the 80s and 90s you can't possibly say we still had bad music, this country changed music
UK might have the best music if we disregard the last 2-3 decades. It's hard to argue with Queen, The Clash, Maiden, etc. Practically all the bands from the 70s-80s that still hold up today in my eyes and that I love are from the UK. If you're talking purely modern music though, US takes it. UK has for too long been nothing but pretentious indie rock nonsense and a bunch of cheap copies of The Strokes, of which Arctic Monkeys is the only one that's actually any good. You can keep your Franz Ferdnands and your Libertines, we have the original, superior product. US has great rock, blues, prog, post-hardcore, grunge. We absolutely own at modern rock and all its subgenres with bands like Alabama Shakes, White Stripes, Black Keys, Strokes, At the Drive-In, Mars Volta, Nirvana. And don't even get me started on rap. Nobody even comes within a million miles of touching our rap game.
Yes, I know lots of people may vote UK or US or why not vote both? Dove Cameron, China Anne McClain, Little Richard, Sofia Carson (especially her and Dove make wonderful, heartfelt music), and many more Disney and other musicians (except for Justin Beiber, he was rude to his fans), they have wonderful music in English lyrics and beautiful voices including Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus, Sabrina Carpenter (SABRINA! ) Kira Kosarin all are some of the world famous musicians so keep on making Mexican and British & English music. YOU ARE ALL WONDERFUL MUSICIANS!
Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes, Rascal Flatts, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, The Band Perry, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Phillip Phillips, Fleetwood Mac, Justin Timberlake, Miranda Lambert, Lana Del Rey. Very few great artists from anywhere else.
Really people Sweden, New Zealand, and Germany I'll give you the UK because of the classics but I cannot tell you the last time I've heard any music from Germany and I've heard about one from Sweden and a couple from New Zealand and hate all you want but your lying to yourselves if your saying you don't listen to Taylor swift and Miley Cyrus.
I'm from Britain, but love the music that bellows out from the states. Grunge was a massive influence over here, not to mention the hip hop culture. Rage Against The Machine are brilliant!
Come on you gotta admit the US's music culture has so much influence on other countries and they get inspired by the music that's produced here
Are you kidding me, the US has created more genres of music than exist. UK #1, did Princess Diane make this list? I can dig the Rolling Stones, but the Beatles are only relevant if you still let your uncle touch your butthole. I would know as I'm nearly 40 and my uncle is touching my butthole as I write this. This website is run by communists.
Common, country and rock music is simply amazing, every country churns out pop stars but Americas country stars have lyrics which are meaningful.
America has good music except the Top 40 bulls*** and everything the media wants you to listen to. Lots of American rock, metal, old country, old rap, and blues is very good - SirSkeletorThe3rd
USA has produced some of the best music (Slayer, Metallica, Pantera, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Nivarna, Ramones, Dream Theater...) but it has definitely produced the worst: Limp Bizkit, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Miley Cyrus, Black veil Brides and REBECCA BLACK. British music however is nearly almost amazing featuring some of the best albums in rock and pop including: OK computer, Dark Side of The Moon, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, A night at the opera...
I like some of their songs, especially their classical songs which are sung by Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong.
Lil Wayne, Michael Jackson, Pharrell Williams, Paramore, Kanye West. Everyone In the world just loves them.
I vote for usa because my favourite band (Linkin Park) is from usa. - harry721
American pop songs always make me feel happy. British pop songs also make me feel happy.
Pop, Rock, Country, Jazz, you just have everything here! Talented singers! Talented songwriters! Talented songs!
The US and UK are the head of the best music on this green earth.
The fact that Canada is on this list makes it irrelevant. The USA deserves top 3.
How the hell is Canada beating america, Canada most popular artists is nickleback, avril and Justin Bieber, yes america has some crappy music but we also have produced great artists Michael Jackson, prince, Diana Ross, cool in the gang, Elvis, the eagles, fall out boy, Beyoncé...
Was there ever any doubt? The home of Country.
U.K. can offer great rock and roll legends but music is about more than ONE genre America is so diverse with all different types of music and artists and our music is heard globally throughout the world topping charts time and time again.
That fact that Canada is number two on this list makes it invalid.
No matter what background artists comming from, all music are produced in usa. Every artist, band, singers and etc became famous when they release music in United State. So, that makes United State is the leader of best music producer!
