Countries With the Most Popular MusicWonderful
The Top Ten
Ahh... It's un-debatable. Take, for example the Beatles, the most influential pop-rock group of ALL TIME and STILL WILL ALWAYS BE! I also love Dire Straits, the Gallaghers (Or they might be Irish... )etc. I hate American Artists such as Madonna and Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus... It can clearly be seen by the producers that they don't know anything about music.
Undeniably the best; the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Dire Straights, the Animals, the Rolling Stones, Queen, there really cannot be a debate about this. Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, Peace, Wild Beasts, Foals, and I'm sure they're a lot of things I don't listen to, having the selective taste that I do. Sure, I'm sure America produces more music by volume, having 5 times the population and all, but for quality and how influential it is, the UK surely takes the lead.
British Music IS the best. Seriously. The Beatles, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Dire Straights, the Animals, The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, Peace, Wild Beasts, Foals, Coldplay, Take That, Adele, Robbie Williams, the list goes on. - Claw
John, Paul, George, and Ringo pretty much explain to me why.V 11 Comments
Our music spreads rapidly throughout the world while I haven't heard most small songs from other countries. Our music is automatically known while other countries need to make their known to get it to many other places. And we all know America is definition of awesome!
Our music has spread to so many parts of the world and inspired a lot of British artist to imitate American artists. Lets Michael Jackson. King of pop. He is known all over the world. Not to mention Eminem who has gotten the attention of a lot of Europeans because they've never heard of a white rapper. US has best music hands down
We have the biggest-selling music of all time...it's not an opinion, it's a fact. The 3 biggest selling songs of all time are American. It's wonderful here, not only is the music great, but the artists are great too. Good songs are everywhere. Just ignore the trash...there's some in every country! - emraldYE
I believe the UK was definitely the king back in the 70's and 60's, now it has to be pretty obvious that the U.S. has taken the lead. There are still many strong British artists, but America trumps them at the moment. I think one of the best things we have going for ourselves is diversity. Pop, rap, rock, country, blues...we got it all, and it's all very popular (ever been to a country concert? White people go crazy for that stuff)V 19 Comments
Canada has popular music.Drake, Half moon Run, Rush, Shania twain, Metric, Celine Dion, Michael Buble, The Tea Party, Alanis Morissette and a lot more.
Some of the good canadian musicians are rush, neil young, three days grace, the guess who, and simple plan.
Fprget Justin Bieber, Canada is the origin of great musical acts such as Neil Young, The Band, and Nickelback.
They also have Max Webster, Kim Mitchell, Nickellback, Avril Laveigne and Mariana's TrenchV 4 Comments

Korean music is awesome hands down. Nearly every K-pop song has a dance and many singers are just hilarious people
Mainstream Kpop is way better than mainstream American pop
Korean music is so popular in worldwide especially Asia, their music is not only interesting but also catchy!
I agreed cause I'm a fan of K-pop.V 12 Comments

Mina, lucio battisti, mia martini, adriano celentano, noemi, giorgia, pavorratti..
Why is India down here?
No one accept Indians understand Indian music..
India has best songs from different religions
I really love indian songs they are really
U2, The cranberrys, Sinead o connor, boomtown rats, the frames, thin lizzy, snow patrol, the undertones, damian rice, westlife, to name but a few, we can claim at bit of other uk acts as well with irish blood - liam and noel gallagher,
South Korea no 5 ha ha yeah I'm sure
Hozier is from Ireland
Ireland should be 3rd on the list- they gave the world U2 for cryin out loud. That band is the second biggest band of all time after The Beatles. Thin Lizzy, Sinead O'Connor, The Cranberries, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Enya all enjoyed huge success in America and throughout the World. The Pogues - Fairytale of New York still gets into UK chars some 27 years after its release, a bona fide classic. Pop music from the likes of Boyzone, Westlife, country from Danie O'Donnell, and indie from My Bloody Valentine.
Bob Marley he is king of Reggae :) and lots of singers like Dennis Brown Ziggy marley Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff are from Jamaica and let's don't forget about Boney M :))))))
Bob marley is apparently worse than psy and all them other k pop wankers
David Guetta is also from France
How about anggun sasmi, the Indonesian born singer. She hits a big fame in France
Patricia Kaas, David Guetta... - Wonderful
Its meh but probably better than k or j popV 2 Comments
J-pop is literally my life.
For me, it J-pop. They give me strenght to face my life, happiness...
J-pop is simply under-rated.. Mostly because anyone who seems to like anything about Japan gets to be called a weeaboo... Ok, now, I personally love Japanese music, and recommend it to anyone who likes music itself.. P.S. - it's funny how Japan dint make it to d top ten with Korea at 3... (you'll understand dis if u know d Eastern pop music history)...
There are actually many artist well known in Japan but with little appreciation internationally, like:
Sheena ringo, shiro sagisu, miki imai, monoral, the pillows, aco, akira yamaoka, alan, asakawa maki, asobi seksu, claris, midori, number girl, pizzicato five, koyi kondo, etc...
Also, Japan is the second country with more artist after the usa.
HIM, The Rasmus, Sunrise Avenue, Lordi and many othersV 2 Comments
I tried to get into Russian music but I haven"t found any really good artists yet... Please let me know of any great ones.
It could be better than k or j pop surely it is, id say it is
Philppines is the best! It should be at the top 10.
Probably better than k or j pop
Everybody knows OPM a lot because it adds drama to each and every song. Upbeat OPM is bothered by certain foreign acts but an OPM songs that can only be sung is purely on top notch!
Philippines is the best
They had a time around the early 2010s where they had a few hits and they're probably better than k or j pop
Probably better than k or j pop
