Why does it seem like electronic music is more popular in Europe than the US?

I've listened to a lot of music in my lifetime, which includes a lot of electronic music, and one thing that I've noticed is that electronic music seems to be more popular in Europe than it is in the US, whether it be disco artists such as Space and Giorgio Moroder, experimental musicians such as Jean-Michel Jarre and Zanov, or stuff from the DJ Networx CDs. Why is this?

    The British have a wider and deeper cultural tolerance than America, which still has a strain of Puritanism after all these years.

    Different places, different tastes.  The music played in South Africa, while it had the same hits as most of the rest of the does, was rather awful.  Imagine a 13 year old listening to what amounted to "elevator music" and thinking it was "so cool".
