I wasn't aware that ANYONE said that. Also, I'm a fan of Classic Rock. Not American Classic Rock, not British Classic rock. All of it (well, most). I don't give a flying you-know-darn-well-what if you're from MARS, if your song has a decent beat, good balance, and no rap, I'll like it. I just like the comic because I have the same opinion as Frank about rap.
No hate but it's your opinion, the world is just a mass of opinions, you choose to believe them or not. Some are facts, which people also choose to believe or not, not matter if they are proven correct or not. Me arguing with you saying that a country has produced more "crap music" or not is void, because it would be my opinion against yours. I could spend my time listing a number of great musical acts that have come from the UK but they would be what I deem to be great, you could do the same but it would be your opinion of your countries ability to produce great musicians.
However I will say this, America is a very large place, much larger than the UK, if you are basing it upon number of crap acts to come on in the last 111 years then it would seem like the country that has the power, funds and abilities to mass produce dozens of times more than the other country would produce more shit. That being said it would also mean that the bigger country would also produce more great musical artists.
Fair? Maybe. Wrong? Possibly. This is just an opinion so choose to take it however you like.
The technicalities don't really matter to me, my response was a blatant troll move. I'm tired of everyone from a different country hating the USA and the things we spend our lives doing. I mean what's with all the outward hate? Americans don't go online and bash other countries? Why do people from other countries do it to us? Our government, religion, education, language, accents, and now our music? Not cool, man.
Okay I think you are just taking out some latent anger about some situation I can not control on me. So let's make this simple shall we.
Notice my original comment, I said a "few "musician acts" around the globe....mostly america though." a few you could guess would be less than 10, most of which I said was american or "america" as I stated. Even if that is 7 out of 10 acts, that is not very many for a whole country so you are making a blatant trolling comment. Which you are free to do I should add. Also I would like to point out that around 30% or higher of my music collection (which around 5000 plus songs at last check) is North American or by north american artists, please don't think that I am bashing "your" country's music.
Now lets get to this comment.
1. Yes American people do go online and bash people, as well as many other countries that have a free voice on the internet, don't act like the country you belong to is innocent, because it isn't, it's just as much to blame as any other country with a free voice on the internet.
2. Other countries may do it to America because of what you are. A super power. You aren't the underdog so you get attacked because you are a huge target. Without bringing up too much of the things you have done, wars in many countries, a strong military bases set up in many countries, Companies set up all over the world that provide good and bad things for/to people, religious extremism (Like the westboro bapist church and the KKK) , racism, slavery (modern day and African slaves), Corrupt government that effects laws and governing forces in countries that aren't it's own, etc etc blah blah blah. These could be to blame for this "Hate" from other countries you seem to see. I'm sure you must know what your country is.
3. The Language you speak is English, please remember that. If someone is bashing your language then they are bashing a language while using it, unless you understand other languages. I'm sure they didn't hate it enough to learn it. Your Language is also a borrowed language from the English, who borrowed it from the Anglo-Saxons I believe. Remember you family is just another immigrant family, unless you are Native american. Accents, Music, Religion are all things that have spread because of your countries influences, if you weren't so big then these things wouldn't spread. Sort of like how not many people take the piss out of Sikhism, because not a lot of people outside of the religion/culture know enough about it. This is a problem you country has created if you see it this way, if anything I would say Americans bash Islam more than the other way around, extremely negatively or otherwise.
You have ultimately created a world that hates you and loves you. The same way you may argue with a close family member but still be very attached to them. Saying that people from other countries bash your country may be true, but Americans do it to other countries too, and Americans do it to their own country, just like other countries do to their-selves.
We live in a world of individuals, addressing one person will not just change the whole, unless you are talking to the right person. I am not the ruler of every other country except America, so I can not fix these issues that these countries claim to have.
Remember you are talking about a tiny fraction of a percentage of people in the world, the vast majority of people are not like you say, please leave your issues with the world with your government because they have the power to change things, I however do not.
I hope your issues are resolved and we can move on from the simple comment on a webcomic that wasn't even direct towards you. Good Luck Mr Paxton, I hope the world treats you well.
Maybe so. But, it's pretty obnoxious that everyone would rather hate America than acknowledge all of the good of our country. It's like we could go and bash Japan for all the bad of Japan. The country has the highest suicide rate of anywhere else in the world, they're "small" in physical proportions, they all look alike, they statistically have one of the lowest sexual intercourse rates out of the entire world, etc etc etc. But no, we don't typically bring any of that up. We look at anime, gaming, and their technological genius and nothing else. Why is that when people look at America they constantly hate up on stupid little things that don't represent the whole? What about all the amazing good stuff about our country? Scenery, cars, movies, animation gurus like Pixar and Laika, TV shows, music, our food, space program, etc etc! We don't get any thanks. Without America we wouldn't have pacemakers, antihistamine, dry-packaged food goods, religious freedom, satellites, the idea of "superheroes", and so much more. Why do people look at us and think we all subscribe to Westboro Baptist Church? Do people realize that church consists of less than 200 people and it's mostly a single family? THEY HATE America so why are Americans associated with them? And why do we get blamed for all these wars? Do people realize most of them are anti-terrorism? There are terrorist crimes happening all over Europe and France even started this whole Syria war here recently. We should be thanked for taking criminals out of power like Saddam Hussein and the wretched Osama bin Laden. But no, we are hated? It doesn't make sense.
Overall, it's just nonsense to be bashed constantly. I'd like to find these Americans you talk about that constantly bash other countries, because I've never seen it.
