    Since you didn't specify today's music or a particular genre, I'll choose the U.S. We have great Rock, Metal, Indie, Bluegrass, electronic, classical artists, not to mention some of the best film composers of all time, right here in the states.

    Being that all modern music, (rock, pop, soul, jazz, country, and blues) is American and not British, I would need to say American Music!

    This is the only shit they can lay claim to, everything else they've copied!

    How about a fair matchup? Something more like Stones, Beatles, Who, Queen
    vs
    Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Doors, Chuck Berry, Van Halen, Johnny Cash

    Something more along those lines.

    My personal list of American artists would be more like Elvis, Carl Perkins, James Burton, Eddie Cochrane, Jimi, Creedence, Brian Setzer, Cash, but you get the idea.

    Even today's music - the UK artists make up a majority of my Spotify feed.

    Blur, Noel Gallagher, Elbow, Doves, Muse, Yuck.

    You really need to narrow it down by genre and time frame . If we're talking about late 60's through early 70's in rock then the Brit's have the edge. If we're talking 50's early 60's then is the USA by far..with Chuck Berry by far the pioneer of Rock and Roll.

    If you want to break it down even further rock can all be traced to the early Blues guys from the deep south

    I would still go with UK. In fact I would put The Stones, Beatles, Who and Queen up against any other 4 bands from any era.

    UK all the way. Add Pink Floyd, Bowie to the list. Even Jimi Hendrix had to go to the UK to become famous, because we are clueless over here.

    Beatles, Stones, Bowie, The Who, Queen, Thin Lizzy, Sabbath, Deep Purple/Rainbow, Maiden, Priest, The Wildhearts, Jeff Beck/Faces/Rod Stewart, Zeppelin, Floyd, AC/DC (most were Scottish, not Australian), Humble Pie.

    vs.

    The Band, Aerosmith, VH, Iggy and the Stooges, KISS, Cheap Trick, Elvis, The Ramones, Prince, Metallica, Alice in Chains, CCR, Neil Young, NY Dolls, Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, GnR, The Black Crowes, Neil Young, Dylan.

    I don't listen to today's music so if I had to look at my iTunes I think it would be a toss-up depending on my mood. I'd probably give a slight edge to the Brits but you couldn't have had any of that stuff without Chuck, Elvis, Bo, etc.
