You misinterpret me
When I say it sucks in general it is because the most prevalent music there is pop music. Yes, I do have great fondness for traditional chinese music and the sort, and I'm kinda lumping all asian pop, europop, and american pop into the same category.|
My two favorite bands are actually British: The Beatles and Queen. However, when it comes to musical innovation, in the 20th century at least, it has been mostly in the US. Think about it. The US was pretty settled in their ways by the early 1900's so people of leisure begin working on the arts. While most of the world was in some sort of the turmoil or in the process of setting up stable forms of government the US was producing groups like the Temptations, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Franki Valli and the Four Seasons.
Also, Rock is DISTINCTIVELY Western. (I've taken plenty of music history courses) The Beatles, Rolling stones, Led Zeppelin, etc all came over and revolutionized modern rock in the US. All the Asian rock I've heard is pretty bad, because it seems like they're not doing anything new!
