    House was invented in Chicago and techno in Detroit. Oh, and Jazz, Rock 'n Roll, punk, funk, disco, R&B, Hip Hop, Metal, Blues, ect. Not to mention contributing the solid body electric guitar, synths, multitrack recording, wall of sound, stereo, ect.

    I cant say either group has better tastes in music, kind of a vague question, but at any rate, my favorite band ( muse ) is european, a couple other bands i listen to ( radiohead ) are european, but everything else i listen to ( nirvana, pearl jam, killswitch engage, etc.) is american. quick question though, what the hell would you consider System of a Down? i know they are armenian, but IIRC they have all lived in america for years.

    As I have said before, then I would not say the Europeans have a better taste in music than others. But Rob Hubbard said it, that Europeans has a better taste in music, but when he said it.. He said it VERY carefully, and explained why too. In a video named
    Golden Days of Computer Game Music and it is on youtube in five parts.

    here in europe we dont use the american formula for predicting record sales

    (length of time between deorderant usage x amount of facial piercings - amount of white clothing items owned / how long artist can scream at microphone squared = xxx amount of sales)

    Just kidding fellas, but seriously why is it that it only seems to be generic heavy metal comming out of the states into the mainstream in the past few years?

    Any place where rock is favored over rap wins in my book. Based off british stereotype I am going to assume rap isn't the most favored music there when competing with other genres but that doesn't speak for all of europe I suppose. Either way this is a oddly bias thread with no sense of direction since everyone has an opinion so... I don't know thread fail?
