All popular music, maybe. But does that really come as a surprise to most Americans?

However there are many genres of American music which have their roots elsewhere. Appalachian music, the mid-west polka tradition, Cajun, country all come to mind. Of course, black music may have had an influence on these to a greater or lesser extent.
