Most Influential Pop Cultures

Popular Culture is the entirety of ideas, perspectives, attitudes, memes, images, and other phenomena that are within the mainstream of a given culture. Heavily influenced by mass media, this collection of ideas permeates the everyday lives of the society.
Whatever it is that inspires you most whether it was music, films, any kind of writings (novels and magazines are only examples), all kinds of art, sport, teachings, people, folklore and history, most of what the media provide the population with, where does the most influential of these in your opinion come from?
We're going to list the sources of culture by country here although it might be confusing to some, but I want you to know even when there are cross-overs in cultures or ones that are very similar or based on same history (those of United States and Canada could be an example) there's always a geographical region or a specific nation of a country that is producing the most influential of a culture.
Please consider ones you think have influenced you, or influenced people you know of and vote for them.
Don't forget to add the country you want to vote for if it is not on the list yet.
