definitely. English impact on the history of music, and modern music is unmeasurably greater than that of any other country in the world.

being serious here ...
England has only excelled in Rock, nothing else

classical?
Jazz?
Hip-Hop?
RnB?
Soul?

England is nowhere to be found, I'm sorry. They don't even come close to the being #1 in terms of music

Ummm...

The USA made Rock -N-Roll...Jazz....R&B...Hip Hop....Country...etc.
There is no way you can put England over us.

Rock...

Jimmy Hendrix...Elvis...Metalica...Nirvana...etc.

Hip Hop...

EVERYTHING

R&B....

EVERYTHING

Jazz....

EVERYTHING


Can't compare man.

You want to focus on Rock you may have a debate...but it's hard to knock the country that started it all.

This should be an interesting topic.

Could you guys name a few more American rock artists just for a reference?
I can't really remember that many US rock bands.

Elvis, Guns N Roses, Bob Dylan, Metallica, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Ramones, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, Kiss, REM, The Doors, Van Halen..

Hmm, UK wins IMO. It's closer than I thought but UK bands are simply better and have done more for the music in general.

What abouit pop? Punk? Close.. Ramones vs Sex Pistols. Still, I give edge to England. It's punk, after all.

USA wins most other genres but I'm mostly interested in rock.

I freaking love Oasis. The Gallagher boys may be crazy but they are like a band of John Lennons

my "classical?" didn't refer to USA vs. England, I only meant to illustrate that England has nothing to show but Rock. Of course classical music from the US is basically non-existant, but England can't compare to other European countries. France, Italy and Germany (+Austria) dominated England.
