Gotcha.  Derek & the Dominos (sans "e") is attributed by Wikipedia as from London.  Good catch, Shortie!

No Doubt is American.  I'll make sure that all of these are correct.

There is a bug in the Fact software.  I could not change Wishbone Ash to the correct U.K. entry no matter how many times that I tried. Same is the case for No Doubt.  I've deleted both because it's better to have no entries than wrong entries!

Apparently, if one of the editors delete an entry, there is a prohibition for resubmitting the same entry.  That is unfortunate, as sometimes it is good to fix a problem rather than ignoring it.

I've also had to delete entries for Grinspoon (Australia), Muse (U.K.), The Offspring (U.S.A.), The O'Jays (U.S.A.), Vanilla Fudge (U.S.A.), War (U.S.A.).   All because these valid facts were deleted once before.

Looking through my collection, I can offer these non-UK, non-US, non-Oz bands to help even the balance:

Cardigans -- Sweden

The Chieftains - Ireland

Clannad -- Ireland

Cranberries -- Ireland

Focus -- The Netherlands

Horslips -- Ireland

Aphrodite's Child -- Greece

Part of the issue could be because if there is an active brainoff using the facts you can't alter them. Wait till the brainoff expires then try again.

Thanks to both of you.  I'll try to add them after the quiz is over.

And Nem .....  good input, I really didn't spend enough time to make the list more global.  I'm also going to add in some renowed African bands.  Nice to learn more on this topic.

What do you think about breaking up The U.K. entries into England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, etc.?    Might add a bit more fun and challenge.  Could break the U.S. entries by the respective State of their original formulation.  This would make this topic a lot tougher.

I think leave as it is. Would get too complicated as some you may not be able to easily determine the origin in that detail and leaving any with just UK or USA would make for more than one correct answer.

I agree, leave the UK and USA as they are - it would be way too difficult at a smaller level.

Aha -- Norway

Air -- France

Daft Punk -- France
