Who are your British/Irish equivalents of Billy Joel and Jackson Browne, so we can needle you about them in that countdown?As Ahnold said in 1984, I'll be back.
It seems the U.S. is singularly suited to breeding musicians I can't stand. There is no equivalent to Billy Joel in human history (thank God). As I've said before, Browne is ok he just bor........sorry, I fell asleep talking about him.
One thing I'm not crazy about is the way some Brits/Irish sing. I don't know how to describe exactly what I mean, but there's a certain accent I can not STAND. That guy from Fontaines DC has it and it's like nails on a blackboard to me (sorry @rockaction ). I find it most often in the punks and punk-inspired artists. It's not that they don't "sound American", just a kind of twang that drives me nuts.
