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.
1Ramones
Ramones


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 ?
2Opeth
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.
3Yes
Fragile


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 ?
5Pixies
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
7blink-182
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.
9Kraftwerk
Computer World


ELECTRONIC - Moog & mellotron in early UK prog, Ultravox and 80's snyth pop, electronic dance music, Europe all the way
10Nas
Hip Hop Is Dead


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