    I have no problem with joking about with each other I find it humorous.
    You on the otherhand did not seem to be joking about your dislike for Americans our music or our culture .
    Hopefully I’ve misread what you’ve meant by fascist or hillbilly!

    I thought about this a while ago.. Several of the bands I like are British too. The Beatles, Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler, The Rolling Stones, and a few others.

    I thought AC/DC were from Australia?

    No you didnt misread something.I said though you as Americans (and i d love to visit NYC) in the 70s and 80s were hostile to the new music wave that appeared.And by you i mean preachers etc. Sadly the government and church give the outside world the image of each nation.Hillbilly is a nice word.I consider Billy Gibbons a hillbilly and i adore him.
    Facists yes like Ted who burnt out on drugs and decided to be political...we have one like him here in Greece too
    No offence to be taken as i applause the 80s metal fans when Twisted Sister went in court and made a full out of judges.Then again American music was the root which without UK wouldnt blossom.Here in Greece we have the Cretans (from Crete) they must be half American...they know it all made it all and take no ****...well its not like that.i dont hate Americans i dont think that you have a culture apart westerns and the civil war you got no history...zorry its the truth when europe wrote and made statues you were doing nothing and your music is well...Blues are great.Alf and Al Bundy too

    Dude, when Europe was writing and making statues, all the people who would eventually have descendants that left for America were also in Europe.

    So I forgot to add that while I don't really get into a lot of American bands, if I had to point to a favorite it would be The Doors.
