America Vs Europe

Some genres I picked out of the air and whether America or Europe wins. Isn't meant to be totally accurate it's just for discussion. Also interested to hear who u think wins in other genres.

PUNK - proto-punk was an American thing MC5 but america was influenced by the British
Invasion (Kinks), UK had pub rock which was a catalyst for punk there, hard to call but probably
a win for America overall ?
Still Life

METAL - Cream's unison riffing, Black Sabbath, Priest, NWOBHM, German thrash, Black Metal &
excellent Scandinavia stuff vs glam metal, Megadeath Metallica and thrash, power metal, doom,
Nu-Metal. Probably a win for Europe.

PROG - Europe had the big guns in the past in the UK and Italy and most new prog releases come
from Europe and Rush are Canadian anyway, easy win for Europe
4Hank Williams
40 Greatest Hits

COUNTRY - no contest, America wins, but is it one you'd want to win ?
Surfer Rosa

ALT Rock - USA 'college rock' & REM vs The Smiths, then grunge USA vs Britpop. I dunno too hard
to call. Needs an expert to decide.
6Johann Sebastian Bach
Violin Sonatas

CLASSICAL - this is unfair bcos Europeans were chucking out stuff before America was even
colonised, but an easy win for Europe anyway
Enema Of The State

POP PUNK - no contest really, it's an American thang isnt it
8B.B. King
Blues on the Bayou

BLUES - originated in USA, ragtime, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughen, Hendrix, Johnson vs Green,
Clapton, Beck, Gallagher. Sheer historical roots have to award this to America.
Computer World

ELECTRONIC - Moog & mellotron in early UK prog, Ultravox and 80's snyth pop, electronic
dance music, Europe all the way
Hip Hop Is Dead

HIP HOP - who cares, oh well America is the winner obviously
