The bottom line is this: The UK music scene is a lot different than I realized. Punk, glam rock, and other forms and bands that were never popular in the US are considered foundational there. Same works in reverse. There is no country or R&B in the UK, and they're bedrock here.

Well, the UK is a very different place. I looked at the same list as you and saw that they rate "Pulp" and "The Charlatans" as top 50 groups. Who in the fuck are "Pulp" and "The Charlatans"? Hahaha Brits... Queen is a big gay act like Cher. Does anyone other than queers listen to her music? No, not really. I just think the British are a lot different than you realize. Just because they speak the same language doesn't mean that they're society is anything like ours.
