Where does your music come from?
Not where you get it from, but where do the musicians who make your preferred music come from?

Different countries do seem to have different tastes in the styles of music they prefer. I've noticed that a great amount of the music I most listen to comes from the UK and Japan and very little of it comes from America despite the fact that I live in the US and the US makes a lot of music. Here in America they don't seem to have as much classic/progressive/art rock as the UK does, and that's one area of music that I seem to listen to fairly often. Or maybe I'm not very in touch with my own culture?

America as a whole and some in the UK and Canada, honestly I don't know.

JayTheKing March 28th, 2013 12:01 PM

Talli March 28th, 2013 12:07 PM

Asia-Japan mostly and of course being from the UK. it comes from here too.

Majority of the Rock and Metal I listen to are all from the USA.
One from Estonia <-- and they are Metsatöl.

My preference for anime music is 100% from Japan.

Since I listen to mostly k/jpop and post-rock, a lot of my music comes from places like Scotland (i.e Mogwai) and Korea/Japan (i.e 4MINUTE, INFINITE). Of course, other, more modern, local music I listen to stems from the US (i.e Imagine Dragons). I'm not that totally culturally deprived after all!

Most of my favorite bands come from the UK. Bands like Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Deep Purple, etc... AC/DC is from Australia, and I think that's the only bit of Australian music I like xD
Other music I listen to is from Germany. There seems to be quite a lot German power metal bands, actually.
And, of course, some USA bands. That's about it.

(Also, I'm not from any of those countries xD )

Most alt-rock I listen to comes from America, while nearly all electronic artists comes from Europe (drum and bass mostly from Belgium/UK, and then stuff like Bjork from Iceland), and most of the post-rock I listen to also comes from various EU countries (Iceland, France, Scotland, Ireland, Italy) and Canada. I also listen to a lot of indie rock/pop from Canada/Quebec.

I get my music from anywhere where they openly agree Justin Bieber needs to be executed ASAP. So mostly hip-hop.

Midnight-Umbreon April 1st, 2013 5:40 AM

Well, Paramore is from the USA, Linkin Park USA, Evenescance USA (I think) Tonight Alive australia, Avril Lavigne Canada, Ed Sheeran UK, Evan Taubenfeld USA.
So looks like the USA (:

The US and the UK. Although I like a wide variety of music, it tends to be nearly exclusively English-language and very Anglo-American in its origins. It's probably because that's the music that I grew up listening to - be it from the radio or my parents or friends or whatever. But, even as I've grown older, I've not really spread my wings, musically speaking. I have a little bit of J-pop on my iPhone, but not all that much, and it's very much different from everything else on there.

Noah Ridgewood April 8th, 2013 7:57 PM

America and the United Kingdom.

Ryoutarou April 8th, 2013 8:43 PM

Mexico and Japan mostly, with a bit of stuff from Spain and America every now and then. I don't listen to as much English music I used to, thanks to me staying away from American radio stations at large since I was a young teen. I'm incredibly out of touch with mainstream English music because of this.

Synerjee April 8th, 2013 8:57 PM

America, UK and Japan. That's where most of the music on my radio comes from. Oh, and I'm a big fan of J-Pop. :3

Swolligator April 8th, 2013 9:06 PM

I quite enjoy Eastern European music, but I'm also not adverse to Japanese or Chinese music.

Also, DIE Synerjee, you have failed this city!

Retro Bug April 8th, 2013 9:06 PM

I would say America and the United Kingdom as well, but like 95% America.

I've never really thought about this question.

Lord Varion April 10th, 2013 2:47 AM

The artist I mostly listen to the most comes from either Sweden or Switzerland.
Can never remember which.

stp April 10th, 2013 11:04 AM

Mostly America. There's probably a bit from the UK, as well.

KriegStein April 10th, 2013 11:15 AM

Well Im from Finland but my music comes allover the world. Some band from finland (of course), metal mostly from sweden (damn you for having so many good bands), some from scotland, england and wales, some from USA, few from France, one from Mexico and China. Thats about it I guess. :D

Darkroman April 11th, 2013 1:08 AM

Mostly US (Breaking Benjamin, Michelle Branch, Paramore, a lot of classic rock, and quite a few other modern rock bands). I also listen to Nightwish (Finland), Lacuna Coil (Italy), and Amon Amarth (Sweden).

Rest April 12th, 2013 10:31 AM

Most of mine are from American and the UK, though I like venturing into music from other countries, such as Chilean and Japanese music to name a few. I don't listen to music from my own country though.

Satoshi Ookami April 12th, 2013 10:55 AM

If I listen to non-Japanese music, it's either American or UK.
