A while ago I wrote an article on the Kaiser Chiefs, and in that article I was making the argument that what is popular in the U.K. does not always successfully transfer to the U.S., and visa versa. Coincidently, a few days ago I came across a visual representation of exactly what I was talking about. (Sadly the Kaiser Chiefs don’t make the list.) Granted the criss-crossing lines are a little hard to follow at times, but the chart still does serve the purpose of showing us just what is lost in translation, if you will, when artists cross the pond. Plus, it is really interesting to see just what our English friends prefer. One final note, if a band is highlighted, that means that it does not appear on the other nations list.
