THE BRITISH ARE COMING!!!
For some reason, British people have been killing it lately. Especially British rock musicians, like the Arctic Monkeys, who have accounted for 40% of the most popular music in 2013. That’s metric for nearly half! Rock is alive and well in the UK, and people love it.
What is it about the UK that makes teens so angsty they drop out of Uni and form a groupe with their mates?
It could be the fact they exist on a tiny island in the north Atlantic with no sunshine, kind of like Portland or Seattle.
It could also be the fact that they all speak with ridiculous accents which vary from one city block to the other, so no one can understand each other.
Most realistically, the music is being created in a vacuum, with little outside influence from American music like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, or 2 Chainz.
Full Disclosure: I like Lady Gaga and 2 Chainz (not really) especially the song “Monster” by Lady Gaga ft. 2 Chainz
