    So as the title indicates, i want to hear about some of your favorite bands/musicians from your own country.
    I find it very interesting to hear music outside the popular stuff from USA/UK.

    I can start, i am from Denmark.

    Nephew: Electronic rock, sings both in Danish and English

    Volbeat: Hard rock, sings in English
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wz09yHXheU


    Zeitgeist: Alternative/rap/pop, sings in both Danish and English
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tG_XNhDM9M&feature=channel&list=UL

    The Dreams: Punk rock/Punk pop, sings in both Danish and English

    American, so that's not quite as interesting, so I'll go by state.

    Iowa.

    That's an obvious one.

    Well, I am from Germany and in my opinion the Germans aren't good musicians
    But I like this one:[video]http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nOemYaV96PQ[/video]

    Well, imo there are some pretty good German musicians/bands:

    Die Toten Hosen (Punk Rock): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j09hpp3AxIE

    Sportfreunde Stiller (Rock): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFvuOpRzkv0 (unplugged version)

    Beatsteaks (Rock/Punk): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2T-_7atmX-0

    La Brass Banda (Ska/Rock): they're actually from Bavaria, hence the singer's strong dialect^^ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4ZhdfOU6sY

    Mono & Nikitaman (Reggea, Dancehall): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNYjZWIZFHU

    Irie Revoltes (Reggea Dancehall): Their lyrics are in German and French http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCd2Sf8VMkM

    + some great rappers: Samy Deluxe, Kool Savas, Blumentopf, Casper, Marteria/Marsimoto, Prinz Pi etc. ... (just look them up on youtube)

    Not to forget that Rammstein is extremely popular, not only in Germany, but even worldwide (though I personally hate them)

    Coming from a third world ghetto-ass country, the closest I can come to music from my country is a band from California with a Cambodian singer (which makes more sense since I was born in Cali and am Cambodian):

    Being from America, the list of bands is large. So I'll narrow it down to home city and post my favorite band from St. Louis.

    Cavo - Thick As Thieves
    [video=youtube;XPI_Vdwe_5M]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPI_Vdwe_5M[/video]

    Fun fact: I work about 3 blocks from where that video was shot and my work building makes a very brief appearance. I have also dined at the TGI Fridays, St. Louis Bread Company (Panera bread) and Hardees directly underneath the pedestrian overpass where some parts were filmed at. :lol:

    I will go with my state as well:

    Devotchka. I'm not sure how well these guys are know outside the state but they did score the movie Little Miss Sunshine and I believe the theme (though it might have just been the trailer) for gears of war. so they have to be fairly well known. Anyways, I love them. They have a very International folk sound.

    Also Jello Biafra from dead kennedys is a local. Flobots and the fray are ok. Rise against is from Chicago but they record in fort Collins and often say Colorado is like a second home so I'm gonna go ahead and take credit for them too :lol:

    Yeah, pretty much! :)
    Some more, some less, but all of them are good in their own way. (I have a broad taste in music)

    Meh, and meh. Pretty much everything about Colonia annoys me, and Hladno Pivo is really more a band you can laugh at when they're on TV, at least to me...

    Sane had that one song, cover of Dino Dvornik, it was pretty awesome...
