Jair Since we're at least 3 Brazilians here in Rocks Off (as long as I know) I vote for a group named "De Falla". They are from the State where I live (Rio Grande do Sul), and do a very "alternative" rock, using also hip hop & funk, mostly. Once they recorded a great Satisfaction version. Mick Jagger would had sayd "the best I ever heard".

My second choice is a new independent group from Sao Paulo, named Ludov, very experimental, with great female vocals & supa dupa groove. This year they won the prize best independent video from MTV Brazil (Video Music Brazil Awards).

The old groups are many, but I dont like any one...I rather pop groups and singers, like Lulu Santos and Kid Abelha, or also Bossa Nova, like Bebel Gilberto, Tom Jobim & many many others.

Snappy McJack Rap is the big thing in the US now. Eminem is probably the most popular act in the United States -- makes me wonder how many CD's he'll sell in the first week. Not that I care that much for it, but it's the truth.

As for rock, I couldn't tell you. There are no more constants; it's all about the "flavor of the week" now.

Lazy Bones Here in Canada, Neil Young, Shania Twain, Diana Krall, Blue Rodeo, The Tragically Hip, Our Lady Peace, Celine Dion (damn, that hurt to type), Leonard Cohen, Avril Lavigne, Barenaked Ladies, RUSH, Alanis Morissette, Bif Naked and The Trews can all pretty much sleep in and eat out whenever and wherever they want.

Golden oldies include the Guess Who, The Band, Joni Mitchell, Steppenwolf, Five Man Electrical Band and Lighthouse.

Unfortunately, in the music business, "best" means biggest grossing in albums sales and live shows.

If you re-phrased the question to read "favourite" group(s), I guarantee you'll get a different list. And, quite honestly, in terms of musical talent, Celine's voice is a greater contribution to music than any rap "artist".

Well, i completely desagree, Lazy Bones. Best is the opposite of worst. Best is not good. But you know, the English is your language, not mine...

Anyways, the last Dr Dre album sales were over 4 million copies, which means he is best?

F505 In Holland? I really don't know. A lot of bullshit actually.
The Golden Earring had their moments long time ago.
George Baker Selection and Shocking Blue had world wide hits but they were one day flies.

In Belgium I'd say Arno but I am not a Belgian

Hi F505. The Golden Earring are good friends of a close friend of mine. Especially George Kooimans, who lives in Belgium.The GE are, together with the Stones, the "oldest" rock band still active.

corgi37 Probably right now, and for the past few years, Powderfinger have been Oz's biggest band. Now, biggest and most important Oz band of all time might be Cold Chisel. Some could say INXS. Even Little River Band were very successful in U.S. in late 70's. I believe their song "Reminicing" is one of the most played songs on U.S. radio in past 25 years.

But, i will give my top 5. To be honest, i dont really like Aussie bands.

1. Kings of the sun - i dont care, i loved them.
2. Powederfinger
3. You am i - Massive Stones/who fans. In fact, supported THe WHo when i saw them not long ago and were very good. Singers fave all time track is Jumpin Jack Flash
4. Cold Chisel - Very, very good. Incredible live. Incendiary. Bit "un-cool" now.
5. INXS - i never liked them

Then there's Easybeats, Skyhooks, Masters Apprentices, Dragon.

Single acts like Olivia Newton-John, John Farnham, Kylie Minogue, Tina Arena, Delta Goodrem.

I dont include Bee Gees - they aint Aussie. Olivia technically aint either, but try telling her that.

Most popular: Golden Earring, DJ Tiesto, Kane, Blof, Within Temptation, Di-rect, Postmen, After Forever, Van Dik Hout, Normaal, Jovink En De Voederbietels , De Dijk, Heideroosjes, Junkie XL, Krezip, Rowwen Heze, Van Katoen, Brainpower, Osdorp Posse, Intwine, Anouk, Ilse De Lange, Ellen ten Damme etc

NOVEMBER 17--Claiming that Michael Jackson is a drug- and booze-impaired deadbeat, a former business associate yesterday sued the singer for more than $3 million in unpaid loans and producing fees. In a blistering Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, a copy of which you'll find below, Marc Schaffel claims that the star's need to hit him up for cash "accelerated when Jackson's increasingly more frequent excessive use of drugs and alcohol impelled him into irrational demands for large amounts of money and extravagant possessions." Those bizarre purchases included luxury cars (a Bentley and a Rolls), a $600,000 bauble for Elizabeth Taylor, and a $1 million appearance fee for Marlon Brando. Schaffel also claims that, following the September 11 attacks, he gave Jackson $500,000 in "emergency cash," because the performer thought he might need to "take shelter underground somewhere with his family." Before entering Jackson's inner circle a few years ago, Schaffel was best known as a producer of gay porno films like "Cocktales" and "Man With The Golden Rod." According to Santa Barbara prosecutors, Schaffel plotted with Jackson to silence the boy who last year accused the singer of sexual molestation. While not charged, Schaffel has been named as an "unindicted coconspirator" in the indictment. (12 pages)

Lol...they don't fall in either the "best", "favourite" or golden oldies' catagories! Don't forget Chilliwack, Doug and the Slugs, Ronnie Hawkins, Jeff Healey, Gordon Lightfoot, Lovin Spoonful, Max Webster, Payolas, Prism, Rough Trade and Saga.

Triumph, April Wine (they opened for both Stones El Mocambo gigs in March '77), David Wilcox, BTO, Crowbar, are/were good.

Then there was one of my favourite Canadian bands - Big Sugar. No longer together as Gordie Johnson is now with Ben Richardson and Chris Layton (Double Trouble) in Grady.

Mr. D I have no clue who is considered the best band in America. Critically, I guess The Strokes? Commercially, most likely some slop like Good Charlotte or Linkin Park. But right now, rap is the big genre of music, with the biggest star being Eminem, who's new album btw is AWFUL. It's a rehash of everything else he's done in his career. He basically realized he could put out an album where all he does is make goofy noises and curse and it will sell 10 million copies. And sadly, thats exactly what this pile of shit will do. If I hear one more Eminem song that makes fun of a celeb or his ex, I think I'll kill the next asswipe I see with bleached-blonde hair.
