There is some awesome music out there, but most listen to those from their country and (possibly other) anglophone countries. This means some awesome stuff gets overlooked! Just because you don't understand something doesn't mean you should listen to it, right? Anyway, with hope the mods won't label this as youtube spam (as i genuinely beleive that it isn't spam), post music from your country :). I'll get the ball rolling

Probably the best pop music to come out of Canada ever, and if I ever meet her, well...I take her out for a nice meal and some Timbits.

@Papa_XIV: I'm from the US, but I've somehow ended up in Kazakhstan. Kids in my school take a 20 minute dance break at noon every day and that song (or some variation thereof) is often included. Then it's followed by Maroon 5 or Lady Gaga, which makes for a rather jarring transition.

I expected that last band to suck (as the only music from Norway that I listen to is either black metal or electronic music), but they were actually pretty good. Like a proto-Gogol Bordello.

Anyway, I'm from America, so I'm not going to bother to try to figure out what the best music from this country is. I'd be here all day.

Norway has some realy good music. At least quality metal.

These guys are from Charlotte, a city near where I live. I figured since I'm in America and our stuff makes it almost everywhere, I'd better post something relatively unknown from nearby.

This is also the band that I busted my car's stereo to :)

Black Spiders - England

In my opinion these guys are by far the most promising band coming out of the England right now. Their debut album Sons of the North is so mind blowing, I really hope that they can follow it up. They are also amazing live, at a music festival last year they were headlining the smallest stage and still managed to attract a massive crowd.

Fuck. Had a friend who would blast this at full volume out of his car while driving through the streets of Belfast. I know it's not the 90s anymore, but fuck it made me uncomfortable.

It's the fact that all the songs they sing are the same song now.
