Anyone who doesn't think that lineup of 90s bands from the UK is impressive - is completely clueless about music.

I wouldn't be bragging too much about ska though.

As a Brit who visits the States every year I think the America inhabited by Howard Stern can safely be described as a great place, but on the other hand any country influenced by Fox News has some serious issues.

Well, this is all very subjective.

Why on Earth do you have a picture of Kate Middleton performing fellatio on Prince William in your avatar? Or what appears to be anyway.

Aside from inventing rock, blues, all kinds of jazz styles, country & western, R&B, Americana, motown, gospel, bluegrass, hip-hop and the electric guitar, what has the US ever done for the music world?

Brits:

Let me introduce you to the roots of your Brit Rock



And here's the inspiration for Muddy Waters:



Robert Johnson's inspirations predate recorded music.

BTW, Blues is the basis for nearly all popular music today.

Which was born in a cornfield somewhere in GA/AL/MS approximately 200 years ago.


ETA:

I think this guy was pretty influential on some Brit musicians as well:

It's a political statement, man. Kate represents the commoners and Prince William represents the Crown.

Re: Nationalism: Do You Actually Think America is Better Than Other Countries?

Lol at Amerika being the best at sport. Medals per capita at olympics: Amerika is in 35th or something something place. In major sports in world Amerika dominates and is without question a number 1 in basketball. Amerika also has a top team and best league in hockey. Basseball,NFL and Nascar are only realy popular in Amerika , so this sports don't count. In everything else they aren't so important.

All the trolling aside. Every country has it pros and cons. In every country in the world you find dumb ******ed obnoxius people , not only in Amerika. Every where in the world there are idiots in parlaments and goverments and in other sphers of public life. Because of Amerikan influence in the world, Amerikan idiots are more in the spotlight then *******s in other countries. Also beacuse of Amerikan influence in the world this idiots have a bit more power then other idiots and people hate them more.

I have nothing against Amerikans and I never had , I just don't like how USA foreign policy works. I mean I understand why and how(or I think I do ) , but it still makes me mad.
If things would be a little more different , world would be a much much nicer place.

You might know it better as just boxing.

I'm noticing a common theme amongst Americans: "I don't know what it is, therefore it must be ****."

Admittedly, when it comes to being narrow-minded and ignorant no one can compete with America. They're definitely the best in the world at that.

Re: Nationalism: Do You Actually Think America is Better Than Other Countries?

I live in a country with a really bad rep. Most of the world thinks of us as being crazy savage murderers and rapists and whatnot ( anyone cares to take a guess ? ) and yet I wouldn't come to live in US even if somebody offered me a 300k a year job and a free house and a Ferrari to go with it. ( Ok, I prolly would do it for a couple of years but always planing to come back here or somewhere else in Europe, but u get the point how I feel about the states. )
And one of the reasons for that is I wouldn't feel safe in US.

Ironically, If u find an American ( the one who doesn't think that Italy is a capitol of France and doesn't think that Hungary is a place you send aid to, because " those people are obviously very hungry or they wouldn't call their country that " ) who has heard of my country he would for sure have the same worries about safety.
But, in my country's capitol and the biggest city I can go trough any dark alley any time of day or night in any neighborhood with no problem at all.

Can u do that in, let's say, Detroit?
