I'll say America...new musical genres just from the black community alone in the US influenced other artforms world wide.Blues music started it all.

Black American

Blues (it basically fathered all of the main musical artforms in America)
Jazz
ragtime
Soul
Rock & Roll
Gospel
Funk
Boogie Woogie

White American

Country
Bluegrass

Blues and the styles that it fathered would leave the USA and help birth new genres outside of the US like Jamaican Ska & Reggae and even Nigerian Afrobeat.

Not JFK. The British invasion coincided with the aftermath of Kennedy's death. Nixon was President when most of these artists were playing. Not the Clash though. The Clash are in my lifetime. But whatever.

America's music history is much wider and more diverse than anything out of England. England is pretty much limited to rock with its peak in the early 70's.

agreed. america has a huge legace over several genres

but then again when you look at the influence of the big englisch acts, its crazy. especially when you take into account how many people there are in the us compared to the uk.

anyway, for some reason most of my favorite acts are from the uk.


besides Elton John > any US act

The USA made Rock -N-Roll...Jazz....R&B...Hip Hop....Country.

You say that like they should be proud of R&B, Rap and especially country. Old school R&B is tight, but since about 1990 its been the 2nd worst type of music around, country has that **** on lockdown though.

Its probably fairly even though, England absolutely pumps the US when it comes to electronic music and rock and roll which are probably the 2 biggest forms of music overall. Throw in punk(you create it you get credit whether its good or bad) and its very arguable.

I'd go with England, because in the forms of music I listen to they have been better. Even their Hip Hop has been at least as good for the last 5 years and they dont have country dragging them down big time.

what?old school r&b is the one of the top selling genres past and present..country has nothing on lockdown.country has to be one of the worst genres of music I have ever heard.country has nothing to offer..thats why its been on the decline.Your funny England hip hop music is horrible I have never in my life heard such awful racket.Seriously every english hip hop artist should kill themselves: The usa dominates england in every way.Electronic music is null and void and please dont get me started on punk.What the **** is punk really?? England cant walk a mile in america's shoes. We have better hip hop I know that for sure.

usa has some of the best singers in the world.thats why england artist come over to the usa. england sucks music wise. hat grime music is horrible. USA rocks england in every part of the music biz. Ask Simon cowell why he came to the usa. cuz he knows england puts out crappy music. its kind of funny how you know the song "smack that" looks like its been played by you.

nobody listens to england hip hop.its sucks period .
