I prefer American bands in general.

There are a few Asian bands I enjoy, like the Versailles.

But Scandanavian and British bands are better than both in my opinion.

Both America and Asia make quite a lot of totally shit music as well.

American music for sure is far more diverse than Asian music.

Asian music, especially East Asian music tend to make a huge amount of bubblegum pop

Southeast Asian music though, tends to be more into alternative rock and ballads.

Quality of music and passion I think SEA>EA. EA though is better in sound system due to superior technology.

American artists (bands, soloists) tend to express individuality; while East Asians tend to be emphasize on conformity...that is why Kpop tends to sound all the same

I'd say the best music in the world comes from the United States followed closely by the U.K.

Iceland, Germany, France, Sweden, Canada, and Australia have also produced some great music.

Asian music though is well.... I'd never say one of the greatest albums or songs ever came from an Asian country. I think most Asian countries are really struggling for their musical identity since most Asian Pop and Rock music seems to play it really safe and just emulate American Pop and Rock music. Bands like Asian Kung Fu Generation though seem to really be on the right track to making the truly excellent Asian music. It just hasn't happened yet.

I like American music wayyyy more. I used to be into kpop and jpop but after awhile you start liking music that you can understand, so now I rarely listen to Asian bands.

Yes and no. Music varies in many different ways. Some Asian bands suck, but so do some American bands. I like both equally.

I listen to asian music almost exclusively now. One thing I think contributes to the better all around quality of asian music is the emphasis on musical education. So many of the musicians play multiple instruments and play them very well.

Truth be told, i dislike most music made in the 21st century. I am an oldies man myself and have a deep love of 70s and 80s music, man i even love me some 60s music! Cannot forget the 90s even if it was a cooldown phase, i grew up on awesome music like Creedence clearwater revival and the like, i could list 5 bands from the 70s and 80s that would make most bands now sound like garbage, lets see....for the first band i name BLACK SABBATH, second band i name CHEAP TRICK, third band i name PAT BENATAR, fourth band i name QUEEN, fifth and final band "seeing as i mention CCR earlier' JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS! These are just 5 bands of the hundreds that erupted in the 70s and 80s, i beg everyone to check 70s and 80s music out BEFORE you decide you like music from outside America, we may suck now but we rocked harder then anyone else ever in the past. The music of the past is still there, so check it out.

I gotta mention Heart and Jefferson Airplane. DON'T FORGET EARTH WIND AND FIRE!

There are both fantastic bands and horrible bands in both countries, so I can't say which I favor more.
