^I'm no expert but I think it's because the term "The Nordic Countries" has been mixed up with "Scandinavia", as "The Nordic Countries" cover all the nordic countries :p

But as words and their meaning evolve. The definition that Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands is a part of Scandinavia is just as correct. It's just a more recent definition.

For some reason I've never been wild about The Raveonettes, I know a lot of people who are. But I just haven't felt that spark

These two songs are good, and I think even if you don't understand what they're saying they're quite catchy..

Oskar Linnros - Från och med Du


Daniel Adams-Ray - Dum av Dig


They're both members of Snook (Swedish hip-hop duo). They're my guilty pleasure artists..

so I'm bending the rules a bit, as the personnel here is not 100% homegrown Scandinavian
but it was recorded in Sweden with the help of some locals

Scandinavia is HUGE for their metal music scene . From power, gothic to death and black.
And they say that it's because Scandinavian guys are too bad at English, they make music with inaudible vocal so they can hide the fact

Cannot deny that Scandinavia is a place for metalheads to live.

Finland is absolutely not a scandanavian country by any standards, it is a nordic country.

My favorite scandanavian music

Susanne Sundfør
The Brothel (also the most beautiful song I've heard in a while) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgAMh7s-q_k
It's all gone tomorrow http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dKi6...eature=related

Røyksopp
What else is there http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLpkXtM-VI8
Poor Leno http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJjha...eature=related

Mew
Special http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsA88gSANts
156 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-t7bbyUwo0

Carpark North
Human http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmfU9...eature=related

Harry's Gym
Brother http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmwVRdWUc4I

Big Bang

I'm a big fan of scandanavian music. If I were to include nordic music as well I'd mention Bjørk and Sigur Ros.

Røyksopp is a personal favourite group of mine. But scandinavian or nordic music is a breath of fresh air for me, its different from the norm of where I am.

Yeah, I was there. I agree, so many good selections of bands! Almost to the brink that I didn't know who to choose between. I think Icelandic music is really rising these days, and then I'm not just talking about Sigur Rós. There are so many local bands in Reykjavík that deserve a shout out!
