sigh why can't people discuss a topic without making it a competition????
If there is music you enjoy why do Americans have to like it or even know about it?
I could just see the foaming of the mouth of some posters if I started a thread about American artista that Europe knows nothing about and then get into a discussion about who is better. I believe the first response would've been along the lines of America is not the only country in the world, who cares about what Americans like, yadda yadda yadda.....
If inclusion was the goal maybe you should've just said hey here are some European bands that I love and I wonder if people outside of Europe know about them? Just enjoy your music and share with people if you think they don't have enough followers..
