    Stereolab sings half in English and half in French. Both are very good.

    No, I can't say it's very common that I listen to a band that's not from the US, Canada, or the UK.


    Though Rammstein is great, of course.

    NovaSonic is a Korean rock band. Very awsome. Better than any J-Rock I've heard.

    I could do a very basic song in Welsh.

    I like a lot of French and Spanish bands, namely La Ruda Salska, Tryo, Kyo, Mano Negra, Saez, Manu Chao, Matmatah, Louise Attaque, and Ska- P

    Thing is I can understand the French ones =D

    I like certain foreign bands. I especially love the Beatles.

    Yeah, a lot of really awesome bands have come from England, that's for sure.

    French rap sounds great. It's odd... French is one of the most lyrical spoken languages, yet many French songs don't sound so good. Especially conteporary stuff. Yet it's a good rap language. German, on the other hand, is a 'harsher' or sharper spoken tongue, yet virtually every style of singing sounds just fine in German.

    I listen to a lot of foreign stuff, whether it's old German and Italian opera, or the French, Japanese and Portugese tracks from the Final Fantasy Vocal Collections (Risa Ohki <3).

    I can enjoy songs in any language, but reading a translation of the lyrics adds to the enjoyment. However, if a song's extremely well sung and written, you should be able to tell what they're singing about just from the emotion in the voice and music. Many of Faye Wong's Chinese songs are like this.
