I like it all. For American I usually prefer groups like NIN, and A Perfect Circle, but I also have a huge love for Japanese groups like The Pillows and Bump of Chicken. I've also completely fallen for the Korean group U-KISS and their silliness, their music just makes me happy.

I feel as if both American (applying to both North and Latin variants) and East Asian pop is just manufactured junk with talent-less pretty faces compared to a lot of British and European counterparts. not to say there are amazing musicians though not as well-known pop-wise that exist on both sides of the Pacific.

I think they are very different from each other and shouldn't be compared. It's like comparing pop with rock.
They are different, but both good, and some days or some people prefer one over the other.

Well, they all have the ability to make the same kinda music, so they're both the same.

So no?

~Truth be told, most Japanese "bands" today suck. A lot of Japanese bands like LM.C, Gazette wear fancy clothes and most of them look like drag queens. It's bad, really. Though I admit to liking one or two of their songs because they're a bit catchy, they aren't that good, really. There are few bands in Japan who are less famous than most J-rock/pop bands but are really talented, like Toe, they sound great too. Current American bands aren't any better though. When I turned on my tv to watch MTV a while back, a lot of the music there sucked. It was horrendous. Thank God MTV died. My opinion is, most music people listen today blows, but there are some bands that make good music, whether American or Asian. They just have a hard time gaining popularity because in the music industry, most people would rather see performers who "look good" or try to look cool than bands who ARE good. That's the reality.

This is just my opinion, but they both suck at times, and they both rock at times as well. With music in general, you usually start with the crappy stuff, and if that's your thing, that's fine. I'm not gonna hate on your obsession with Super Junior or Pit Bull. But if it's not your thing, you start to dig deeper and find the good stuff that you like. If it's Asian music, that fine. I'm not gonna lie, I like listening to it some times too. But for me it's American rock that's my favorite. Notice how I said which genre I'm a fan of. that's because each genre is it's own world (I guess you could call it that) and you shouldn't judge music as a whole by one genre. For me, Asian pop sucks. It's the same flashy stuff over and over again with stupid cutesy lyrics repeated like a broken record. But for a long time, I like Asian rock because it was different than what I would listen to in America. But now (as you can tell from my icon) I'm a fan of American pop punk and rock. That's because opinions (like which genre is better) change. If you look back at what you said in your post after, maybe about ten, maybe fifteen years or so, I'm pretty sure your opinion's gonna be different. Maybe you'll still hate American music, but you don't like Asian music as well. Maybe your 'faith' in American music will start to return. Maybe you'll have the same opinion, but with better evidence instead of what you just say.

(sorry for the long post, I was on a roll)

It depends what you mean by band. Band is a group of people who play instruments together, a group is a pop group that sings and dances. Most people on here aren't differentiating between the two. I never really listen to bands but from what I can tell everyone on here assumes Japanese bands only consist of visual-kei and J-rock, neither of those genres are very popular in Japan. The most popular Japanese bands are more indie-inspired pop/rock bands.

But the answer is no. No band or group is better than another because they come from Asia. You should judge music by weather or not you enjoy it, not by what country the artist is from.

It depends on what you're used to. For me, the lyrics being "clean" doesn't matter to me so much, to be quite honest. I've always loved Japanese music, but not for any specific reason. It just appeals to me.

As for American bands, I don't hate them, but it doesn't give me the same feeling that things like J-Pop,J-Rock or music from Japanese video games does.
