You have rock bands moving from th US to London now. It used to be the other way around. The US music scene is terrible now, and I see it declining even further.

That 4 word reply is not really a way to prove you are right for this topic and for this debate.

Plenty of people would agree with me for what I said for the music scenes in different places in the post before, and plenty of people do not view Atlanta as contributing to the music scene that much, and most would agree any music contributions Atlanta has seems to be kind of bad and low quality.

If you enjoy Atlanta’s music scene that is okay, but I am not sure why you seem to want other people to have the same opinion as you for this topic. Do you live in Atlanta or work for Atlanta's music scene or something?

That is such a false statement to say for Atlanta’s music scene.

These are the places in North America with much better music scenes than Atlanta that contribute to the music scene in much better ways:

North America: Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York City, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, etc.

For what that website link said with the leader in Europe’s music scene (Oslo), I don’t disagree with that as much and agree with that one a bit more.

Either way, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Berlin, Bergen, Reykjavik , Manchester, Edinburgh, Barcelona, Rome etc. contribute to the music scene just as much and probably even more than Oslo.

Even in Norway itself, Bergen seems to be more of a leader in music scene than Oslo.

And why did that website link not mention places in Asia, Australia, Latin America, and Africa?

I think Toronto is one of the best North American cities for music.

Or at least for the music I listen to. Some of my favorite bands are from there.

Posting that link and the relatively feeble list of acts contained in it (in quantity and quality) actually doesn't help your case.
