  • Americans and British music.

    Hi.

    Though many of you may never have heard of me, I'm Scorchio and I'm from England.

    Out of curiosity, I was wondering what British bands people in America have actually heard of. My favourite band is MUSE, and other bands I like are Lostprophets and Kasabian. Have any Americans on these boards heard these guys before, and are there any American bands you think I may/may not have heard of.

    (BTW, I Hate rap and r'n'b music so dont even ask about those)

    Re: Americans and British music.

    I know of Muse and Lost Prophets. Most bands I tend to like are from the UK.

    For example (the "newer" UK bands I like):

    Protocol (still extremely bummed by split last month)
    Hard-Fi (saw them earlier this year and they were so awesome.. got to mee them after the show too)
    Orson (they're originally from Los Angeles but they relocated to London)
    Bauer
    McFly
    Infadels
    Boy Kill Boy
    Veto Silver
    Radar
    Dixie


    Scorchio, here's some American bands you should check out:

    Rock Kills Kid
    Motion City Soundtrack
    Plain White T's
    The Threads (they're good friends of mine)
    Hangtown (also good friends with them)
    Soulfound (I know them too... LOL!)
    Deccatree
    Anberlin
    I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness
    Troll for Trout (I used to hang out with them a lot when I lived up north)

      Muse is very popular here in the states, they play them quite a bit on the alternative rock stations.
      I also like The Artic Monkeys.

      Some good American bands:
      The Killers
      The Foo Fighters
      The White Stripes
      Weezer

        Scissor Sisters are awesome. I'm quite pleased with both of their albums.

          Scissor Sisters are HUGE in England. I've heard they put on an amazing live show.

          Oh and I forgot to add that I'm a lemming and I like Robbie Williams too (I know he's HUMUNGOID over on the other side of the pond).

            I know Lostprophets and Muse.

            Other ones I know:
            DragonForce
            Skindred
            Judas Priest

            I also know of other random European bands (all pretty much black metal) but I have to say all my favorite bands and the ones I actually like are all American.

              Aimster: Robbie isn't a human God to all of us, not us MUSE fans, that's for sure.

              I also like:
              Linkin Park, Lostprophets, Kasabian, Muse (again, they're 2X as good as others), Foo Fighters, Green Day.

              tloolgb: even I haven't heard of Skindred. Who are they?

                    Wow, I come from a completely different generation of music listeners. The music I listened to was early Manchester and shoe gazer.

                    I understand that every generation needs their own sound, but todays music isn't that appealing to me. There is that one Muse song that sounds like its channeling Queen, but other than that, not so much.

                    Be outrageous

                    Just don't be boring

                      Hey, I'm 38 and I really like Muse! I like a lot of the new rock. I like a lot of the music my teenage son listens to. In turn, he likes a lot of classic rock and new wave.

                          I'm getting back into my late 80's early 90's alternative. New Order, Smiths, The Cure, Lush, Charlatans, Catherine Wheel, Stone Roses, House of Love and such.
