    Hey gang, saw an interesting poll question pop up on my FB feed this morning and thought it was worth asking on here. This is NOT meant to turn into a nasty thread--no need to bash anything to validate your pick, just simply pick one of the two and if you have a reason why, then list it.

    I'd need to stick to swedish hard and glam rock no matter what... Seriously, I listen to swedish bands about 75% of the time. Two of them, mainly, but still.
    Other than that, I'm probably more UK-oriented.

    I'm into Pink Floyd, Queen, Dire Straits so I guess that answered your question... although I would be very sad If I had to abandon some great American music :thumbd:

    Ya, as much as I love the 80's LA metal scene, I think I would have to give up American music just because of NWOBHM.

    I cant make the choice. Too much to lose on both sides of the ocean.

    I can’t give up Tom Petty and Garbage and Bruce Springsteen and SRV and John Lee Hooker and Buddy Guy.... but nor can I renounce the Stones and LZ and the Police and the Beatles and Pink Floyd and Bowie and the Kinks and The Cure ....
    I won’t and you can’t make me.
    So there.
    :p

    I’m pleading the 5th. No Beatles, Zep, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Robin Trower on one hand. No Chuck Berry, James Brown, BB King, SRV, Temptations, Sky & Family Stone and Santana on the other. Where does Jimi fit. An American that broke big in England first? This question is the Devil! A pox on it I say!

    I could not give up all American or British music but I would gladly like to forget 80's British Pop music.

    I'm a Neil Young fan, can we take a continent into account?

    Also wouldn't like to be without Jimi's music, so.....

    Twofold answer...

    Id stick with European Metal, Glam, Hair metal, Rock... Ive been saying for years all the good stuff comes from Sweden , Finland , Germany then Britain.
    I love the American Hairmetal scene from the the USA but if I had to give it up id stick to European scene
    Why, it has longevity and just keeps getting better.

    Id stick with American Blues ( and yes I put Hendrix here...)
    Why, it started there and its roots are deep and real.

    I could happily do without 99% of music made after 1960, wherever it was made.

    Since most modern British music is American music , I'd say the question is flawed.
