    Inspired by the 'Status Quo' thread funnily enough I thought I'd make a Britpop one. I just wanted to pay tribute to one of the greatest periods in British Music, certainly the greatest period I have ever lived through. It was a cool time to be in Oasis vs Blur etc - coupled with Euro 96 - it couldnt have got any better imo:cool:

    Look at the list below - ******* brilliant:)

    Britpop, refers to the plethora of '90s bands who drew more consciously from the tradition of the Beetles than any single movement. Though the movement originated in the U.K. indie scene, Britpop was extrememly commercial with bands who were creating the soundtrack to the lives of British youth. Although the music has faded commercially, certain bands have attempted to keep the genre alive.

    Supergrass
    Pulp
    Suede
    Blur
    Oasis
    Radiohead
    The Verve
    Menswear
    Cast
    Sterephonics
    Primal Scream
    Ocean Colour Scene
    The Bluetones
    Ash
    Elastica
    Garbage
    Mansun
    Embrace
    Space!
    The Prodigy
    Dubstar
    Sleeper
    Shed 7
    Underworld
    Charltons
    Kula Shaker
    Black Grape
    Sneaker pimps
    Placebo
    Manics

    One thing thats scary is that they'll be having 90's nights in nightclubs soon - kind of retro. Still it would be fantasic.

    Of course what preceded this - the Manchester scene was imense too. Stone Roses, Ride etc etc - thats another thread.

    British Music really did rule all in the ninties.

    I don't think American music came close.

    In twenty to thirty years time it will be the music from the band's in your list that will still be played in clubs :)

    I was listening to them through more or less lack of choice when on the raido

    I did listen to quite alot of Oasis at the time and some Blur just dont think there that good in the grand scale of things. Verve however are pretty darn good.

    Plus I am more of a rock man and was listening to stuff like

    Green Day
    Offspring
    NoFX
    Dire Straits
    Eagles
    Springsteen
    Queen
    Metallica
    China Drum
    Bon Jovi
    Def Leppard
    Terrorvision
    RHCP
    Pearl Jam


    and many many others, guess im just not a brit poppy person, however I was forced to listen to most of the stuff you posted through friends and things, not by choice.

    and also i tend to rate bands by there quality over time not by one song or one album, most of the above that you posted had maybe 2-3 decent songs which a good band does not make.

    sure Supergrass had Alright and one later I cant remember
    Suede had a couple of decent tracks
    Radiohead had one decent track - Creep


    etc etc I could probably go through them all but like i said to me one or two good songs a good band does not make. Just my 2p.

    Lots of great bands mentioned :) My favs being:

    Oasis
    Radiohead
    The Verve
    Sterephonics
    Ocean Colour Scene
    Ash
    Garbage
    The Prodigy
    Manics

    I can't remember the last time I played anything by Oasis/Verve/Garbage etc , even though they've all released some brilliant albums. Oasis went downhill quickly after What's the Story. D'ya know what I mean & My big mouth are the only songs which stood out on Be Here How. The Phonics were brilliant up until JEEP. Look forward to hearing the Prodigy's new stuff should it ever be released. Radiohead are Gods in amoungst all those bands though. Enough rambing now...:p
