American bands are definitely more popular however there are asian bands that are good..For the type of music I listen to hardcore/metalcore music and reggae music...I don't think the asian scene can compete..(btw I do like listening to some of the asian hardcore/metal core and reggae scene but you have to admit that asia is know more for their pop music than rock..

I believe that all music is equal because they're usually different styles and whatever but lately I've been very into k-pop still I can't say that Asian bands are particularly better than American bands as they're actually two very different things.

The only Caucasian band with real talent to me are Rage Against the Machine, they made music to get a point across.

But rly and truly I only really listen to Asian music and Rage Against the Machine.

Asian music is superior !

its hard to compare since they are both distinct
i think a lot of metal bands have deeper meaning to songs than bubble gum and pop songs

if you look strictly at what is "popular" in the us well pop music is 90% sickening

there are many great quality bands from all countries
just need to know where to look

For me, I started listening 2 KPOP ever since baby vox, Se7en, Fink.l, Fly to the Sky, Shinhwa,
& others bands came out. That was in the old days. lol

Then i got hooked wen DBSK, RAIN(BI), LEE HYORI, BADA, SE7EN, BIG BANG, WONDER GIRLS, SNSD, SUPER JUNIOR, SHINEE & others came out.

Now, i tend 2 listen 2 American songs & Korean at the same time. If i'm in the mood 4 that kinda music then i'll listen to that one.
If u guys think about it, KPOP is gaining more fans over the world ever since DBSK & BoA made their hit songs.

Plus, Asian bands r good looking than American bands. Asian bands focus more on their dancing skills rather than singing.
Also, Asian bands like 2 b cute & handsome.

I've been listening to Kpop since I was really little. When we moved to the US when I was 7 my mom was a really big Shinwa fan so she played it around the house like ALL THE TIME lol. It wasn't until I was like in 3rd or 4th grade that I started getting into American bands (N'SYNC, Destiny's Child and Dru Hill). I like both but I'm more use to Kpop since I grew up listening to it. I think asian bands are better looking too XD!!!

It's really a shame that many only look at the hip-hop/pop side of music on both ends. Or, for that matter, only mainstream music. On every shore of the great blue pond there are many not very well known musicians and bands that really don't get the recognition they deserve. Some that I'm fimilar with are bands like Startovarious and Symphony X. Groups with talent that would destroy lesser bands. I do agree mostly withthe opinion of modern American music, as most of it is garbage. But as far as music being about sex, drugs or money? Well, that's nothing new. That's been a topic for songs since the 70's

But, because I know more U.s/Erupoean bands, I'm going to go with that.

US/European rock/pop bands are for me,i'm not really a fan of guys dressing as girls OR look like girls in some asian rock/pop bands and boy bands.

also i can feel? or somewhat relate to western songs better than the ones from asia,im also asian but really,for me it's english bands ftw.

Japanese music all the way... American music is just a disgrace, and Korean music is way too americanized.
