some of my favourite non-american artists
i'll start with a genre mostly neglected in this thread so far, one that was created in england, parallel to america's hip hop revolution (minus the funk influence): trip-hop.

  • massive attack - england.

    so revolutionary, they are usually referred to as the quintessential band of the genre. the original band of the artist tricky. featured in all sorts of movie soundtracks. you've heard them before, even if you don't realize it.

  • portishead - england
  • sneaker pimps - england (but only really the first album)
  • lamb - england
  • hooverphonic - belgium.

    some from other genres:

  • sigur ros - iceland.
  • imogen heap - england (also only really the first album)
  • the cure - england (disintegration, mostly)
  • u2 - ireland
  • radiohead - england
  • paz lenchantin - argentina (but plays in american bands a perfect circle, zwan)

    some already hotly debated (prophex v. the world):

  • led zeppelin - england
  • pink floyd - england
  • clapton - england
  • the beatles/wings - england

i'm really only listing the things i listen to on a regular basis. i've got a lot of stuff i don't play a whole lot from who knows where, everything from classical (which i assume we are excluding? i really like chopin and rachmaninoff), to marley, to soft cell and the boomtown rats, to bowie, to bjork and dido, to the clash...

this dude doesn't have an agenda? oookaay. whatever, dude.

Rockin' In The Free World by Neil Young
--------
There's colors on the street
Red, white and blue
People shufflin' their feet
People sleepin' in their shoes
But there's a warnin' sign on the road ahead
There's a lot of people sayin' we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like Satan, but I am to them
So I try to forget it, any way I can.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away, and she's gone to get a hit
She hates her life, and what she's done to it
There's one more kid that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man
We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand
We got department stores and toilet paper
Got styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer
Got a man of the people, says keep hope alive
Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

I discovered a good counter example, Elvis Costello.

Also more importantly... Bob Dylan is one of the best examples of a true artist. Can't believe I didn't know enough of him to tell you until now.

I can dig 'em! (Although I prefer male singers.)

My favorite bands are Nine Inch Nails and System of a Down.

IMHO, the OP is filled with idiocracy.
