I don't know if you are on the Americans or Brits side for sure but I like this

British movies lack the wow factor.. Hollywood special effects make a big difference

But is there anyone who party hard with Lady Gaga, Britney Spears or Rihanna's music?

No, those are banned in the UK. Brits are only allowed to listen to Shakespeare poems and sing Rule Britannia.

Another major difference imo is that America has party locations that exist to party and people come from all over to party there...South Beach in Miami, New Orleans, SoCal. Brits party where they are but people don't vacation to UK to go party.

Well, no sh*t, the UK isn't a warm, sunny paradise like New Orleans or Miami, and doesn't need to rely on a party image to attract tourists.

This thread is as low as it gets!

Now NOONE can say Brits don't party hard.

Our young are dying of drugs and alcohol related illnesses.

Partying hard isn't a good thing but it is something Brits are known for.

Go to Newcastle, Glasgow or into Europe to places like Magaluf, Amsterdam, Praque, Marmaris, Zante etc. there are hundreds of thousands of Brits dotted all over Europe drinking copious amounts of alcohol every day of the year.

It is nothing to be proud of but it is reality.

You can't always go by what you see on the screen. That isn't real life.

The times I visited London, I saw plenty of very loose women if you know what I mean.

By the way, have you heard of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath? (Okay, I'm old-school)

Well I wouldn't put much stock in the OP's opinions considering she considers Lady Gaga, Rihanna and NSync to have "wow" factor. Seriously, listen to some music that isn't aimed at 12 year old girls. And do some traveling.

They don't sell alcohol and the bars are closing at 2am in lot of cities in the US, that's a party killer for me !
