Not necessarily what's the "best" of other countries - just what can be seen all over billboards and on the radio.
Like, Russia has Taty/t.A.T.u. right now. Germany has Rammstein. Japan has... okay, Japan has a lot going on.
Just for curiousity's sake, what's the big names in other places?

Do you mean just domestic "artists" or do you also count international ones?

in Hong Kong, it's all melodramatic sad love songs... it's quite annoying, really. You'd think such a big population has different tastes, but no. You turn on the radio, it's all the same kind of songs about love and how love sucks, etc.

LOL. We have coldplay. Not good unless you're emo. They're the new softer Linkin Park I swear.

Being completely unable to spell English words, however, makes you cool as fuck.

yo guys, i'm Just Some Malay Guy.
i donno about ur contries musics, but i betcha you guy never hear the songs they play here.
if it not some oltimers, it gotta be some freekin wannabees singing all sort of WTF kind of song. The only alternative is the govm. radio station (real tradisional music including a abroginal station here)

Take That are pretty big here in Britain right now. I used to think their new album sucked ass, but my mum won't stop playing it and now I think it's awesome.

Is it true that people in America don't know Take That? What a thought.

"Indie" (though most of it on major labels) is bigger than ever here in Britain as well. We've got Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Razorlight, Kaiser Chiefs etc.

Last I heard of Silverchair was 5 years ago with the video for that "Greatest View" song that got a lot of playtime on Kerrang! TV (rock video channel). Good song, but last I heard from them.

They have a new song "Straight Lines". Not as cool as "Greatest View" but still good.
