Why is British heavy metal / heavy rock so terrible ? French rock music is garbage also.

The Americans, Canadians and Aussies are good at it. I'm not talking about AC/DC either.

Come come GM!

Deep Purple, Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Motorhead...

Bit like Covid, we lead the world in hard rock/metal bands. Apart from AC/DC who are Australian and play very catchy pop tunes fast and loud!

It is a shame I agree that the greatest hard rock band (who I assume you are referring to) Spinal Tap are American; but you can't have it all...

Sorry I think them bands are a dirge.

Look at USA Kiss, Anthrax, Black Oak Arkansas, Amboy Dukes, Black n Blue, Blue Cheer

Canada gave us Prism, Helix, Killer Dwarfs, Kick Axe, Headpins, BTO

If you wanted to know my favourite Aussie band it's the Little River Band

JK I like you little note towards the end about insisting on a key change..
interestedly nowadays key changes are rarely used.

When SAW/PWL were top of their game, so many of their songs had key changes (Modulations)
but rather than a half step up in the final chorus's they would split the verse and chorus up into different keys
and usually by 4 half steps, i.e. verse could be in A Flat and the Chorus could be in C often with a cleaver pivot chord or two to transition into the new key.



GM Talking of Little River Band, my favourite song of theirs was "Reminiscing"
and my top version is by Aussie duo Madison Avenue




and now after gallivanting around the Internet I found this humorous one with JK and a cranky Noddy
