The best to me by genre is:

Rock - USA

Electronic - USA or some European country

Reggae - Jamaica

Joyful rhythms - Brazil

Music to dance - whole Latin America, mainly Brazil (all), Argentine (tango), Caribbean (all)

Metal - I have no idea, but I think it would be in some country from Europe

Opera - Italy

Asian music - Japan



I don't know why, but I like Arabic music too

The US music scene is LAME. Pop, top 40, rap, country, etc. It is all garbage music. England has an INCREDIBLE music scene. The US USED to be cool with jazz, rock, and blues. What happened to us? Now other parts of the world does all of those things much better than us!

The UK
The USA
Australia
New Zealand
Sweden
Canada
Germany
Denmark
Norway
Finland

I listed all of the Scandinavian countries partly because I love metal and death metal, but Sweden in particular is by far the most successful country outside of the Anglosphere for producing so many amazing artists of all genres.

I agree.

The mainstream stuff here is lame right now. Even so called good bands such as the Black Keys absolutely suck. The USA is churning out rubbish, while the decent stuff is coming from the UK, New Zealand, Australia, France and Sweden.

However, 10 years or more ago it was different. Grunge came from the USA, so did so many other amazing bands. It's really only been the last decade that American mainstream music has fallen into the crapper. Hopefully it will make a comeback, or you'll just keep seeing more god awful bands and artists like Kesha.

Rock? Nothing good rock-wise has come out of the United States in well over a decade.

For the Mainstream mostly ...
Europe they are good on Techno music
R&B, Rap, Rock, Alternative Rock, Pop - USA
I agree on Latin Music as Music to dance
I like Bossa Nova music of Brazil
Yeah, Italy are known for Opera song

Broadway Musical - Miss Saigon and Les Miserables (London and New York)

Asia - We're kind of different that the mainstream will probably don't appreciate much. But "Jai Ho" (A mixed Indian beat is a Hit though), Before I don't appreciate the arabic music too lol but it actually sounds nice to listen to.

Yes, I think so... I just mentioned USA because most of Rock bands that I know come from there... UK is very good too, normally I confuse USA and UK. Anyway, I don't listen rock for a long time, so I just remember the old rock bands.
