I like The Corrs slightly if I can use that as my Irish group. >_>

And ABBA are the shit, of course, which covers Sweden.

Those two fat blokes who sang Macarena can represent Spain.

I have real hard trouble differentiating between Canadian and American artists. I know that Sum 41 and Celine Dion are from Canada, but I wouldn't say I liked either.

I only know of Rammstein from Germany, and I hate them. I didn't even know France had music. Japan have that whole J-Pop thing going on but I haven't heard any.

I suppose The Cheeky Girls would be an adequate entry for Romania. Harmless pop fun.

Aqua are the shit and I know they're Scandinavian, but Wikipedia doesn't tell me where in Scandinavia they're from. Let's hope it's not Sweden, since Sweden doesn't need help.

Australia: Kylie Minogue, AC\DC, Midnight Oil

Canada: Barenaked Ladies, Neil Young

Finland: Nightwish

Germany: Kraftwerk, Rammstein

Ireland: The Corrs, U2 and a few Celtic music artists whose names I can't think of right now. (Celtic music is the shit!)

Italy: Lacuna Coil (although, I can count the # of songs I've heard by them on one hand)

Japan: TM Revolution, Do As Infinity, Two-Mix, Ayumi Hamasaki, Boa (she's actually Korean, but does J-Pop, so.....)

And I also want to say Orbital and Daft Punk, but I can't remember what countries they're from (I think Daft Punk are from France?).
