America might have its share of revolutionary bands, and canada may have its fair share of overrated pop, but the UK is were everything started. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, Queen, and many other bands literally started the majority of music genres, and they all came from the UK. Radiohead, and Pink Floyd both practically recreated Alternative Rock, and the very Genres that are Metal, Hard rock, and Rock would not exist without the Rolling Stones The Beatles, and Led Zepplin. America might have Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, and Bob Dylan, but UK is the very basis of practically every genre of music. They influenced music from the beginning of the 1900s, and continue to influence it today. Face it people, without the UK We would just be without certain genres, we would simply be without music.

Everyone here hates my favorite genre of music so much that is pathetic because it is clearly what the world listens to. I'm not even going to name the genre, its obvious. I have no problem with people hating one of my life's passions and an integral part of what gets me by in life, but how dare you suggest that it is not even music.

Festivals in Philippines seem to be less about drug distribution and more about the music compared to the UK.

There is no other country in the world is as talented as indians in music... I think India would be in the top because united kingdom, USA and others' singing style is like- wave your head and make a chorus, and it will be a music! They think so but the real is that music is a rhythm through which feelings are expressed and Indian music have done it... Indian music has no craziness like UK, USA and others but have the power of expressing real feelings...

If any superstar musician, band artist or singer can sing the Indian classical, Karnataki Sangeet, Dhrupads, bhatiali, vaoiya and many other Indian traditional music then I will never comment in this matter!

The above mentioned singing styles are the toughest of all types off singing! Michael Jackson, Enrique, Akon they will become speechless if they listen or try to sing this types of singing style...

But It was proved that Indians can easily sing the western music... It is not so tough but very easy!

India is the best. India make a music is heart touching music and I love Indian music and I love

Being apart of this country, I enjoy it the most

Sorry to burst your bubble but this so-called country didn't exist more than 70 years ago so forget "2000 years", essentially everything Israel has is slyly claimed from what is actually Palestinian and Arab culture and always will be. Claim all you want, it doesn't make it Israel. But Israel can take liberty of their baby-murdering culture, that's all theirs.

Israel combines Music and Culture from modern day music with music that's more than 2000 years old! Furthermore, many Israeli songs of the 1900s combine the history, emotions, and pleas for peace in the Middle East and really depict the struggles and lifestyles of the formation of Israel.
