I liked Your Arsenal the best. Any tour where he sings Certain People I Know, National Front Disco, Girl Least Likely To is a great tour.
Maladjusted was the worst, because the shows were so short. 60 minutes just doesn't cut it.
I can't stand rap, but I bet that white kids listen to it in order to piss off their parents. Just like kids used to piss them off with the Stones in the 70s and heavy metal in the 80s. Every new generation loves to piss off Mom & Dad, one way or another.
As for good American bands, Green...
