What singer/band do you think is the most famous to come from your country?

  1. Yes, I know most of today's popular musicians can from either the USA or UK, but every country has to have some that are in some way famous, so why not say what you think it is for your country?

    I can think of three that would fit for Canada

    1. Rush
    2. The Tragically Hip
    3. The Guess who
  2. Canada.... *cough* Justin Bieber.
  3. We have all agreed that the Beibs is the USA's problem now.

  8. Italy-
      • Andrea Bocelli
      • Luciano Pavarotti
    (both operatic... there are modern pop - but these guys would be most famous)

      • Jennifer Lopez
      • Eminem
      • LMFAO
      • Lady Gaga
      • Carly Rae Jepsen
    (Those are the most watched youtube video artists from USA - As of 2 months ago)
    ...personally the artist I listen to the most (also in top 20 most watched youtube video of all time) would be Shakira... but seeing as i'm not from columbia, I can't list her D: so yeh
  9. USA
    • Bruce Springsteen
    • Aerosmith
    • Green Day
    • Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers
    The number of times the artist is watched on youtube means nothing. The bands I've listed have been around since before the 90s, and still write music today.
  10. There is a great band from Vancouver, Called Said The Whale. I like their songs :D
    This music video is heartwarming :p
  11. UK
    • Calvin Harris :D
    • The Killers
    • Bastille (I thought they were american :p)
    • Bruno Mars
    • Eminem
    • Drake?
    Not counting One direction or Miley Cyrus because well......they're crap.
  12. One direction is from the UK
  13. Uh, 1D, Justin Beiber, Miley, those people
  14. I know that. I just put both of them at the bottom. I should have but one direction in the UK category to make it less 'confusing'
  15. Ugh, mainstream artists.
