The Top Ten
90's Music Isn't Music Without Oasis And Nirvana
If you think Definitely Maybe & What's The Story sounds like the Beatles get your ears checked. Oasis were the best band of the 90s and one of the best bands in British history. Noel Gallagher is one of the best songwriters of all time as he's written timeless anthems.
Is this even a question? Everything you desire from a band lies in Oasis...15 Comments
I love both Oasis and Blur but Oasis had 2 AMAZING albums and the others weren't as good. Blur had made amazing music all the time.
I think Blur are the definitive Britpop band even though Oasis was more globally famous. Oasis are a solid rock band who were downhill from their debut in my opinion, but Blur covered all the bases and all the genres, from pop to rock, new wave to experimental, serious to lighthearted and kept changing their sound in compelling ways.
Blur is severely underrated (especially in the United States), and are definitely superior to Oasis.
I'm sorry but you just can't beat blur I mean they were before oasis and oasis are well known for like 4 songs which were all just good anthems, blur on the other hand are still back togethor and are playing better than ever while oasis spilt up
parklife beats morning glory
coffe and T.V. beats wonderwall
Oasis and Blur are great, but derivative. Oasis is basically a Beatles imitation band, albeit a very good one, and Blur are trying to imitate the Kinks. Pulp were the only one of the three who did something genuinely original. It didn't always work but they deserve credit for it.
Pulp should clearly be up on the list. One of what I call the Fab four of Britpop, along with Oasis, Blur, and suede, with The Verve next on the waiting room.
Um I hope the only reason this is not in the top 5 is because everyone hates orange pulp juice
Why isn't Pulp higher up? They so embraced indie, how to be cool outside of the people who weren't cool, of the cool.6 Comments
Coldplay aren't Britpop, they're post-Britpop, along with Travis, Kasabian, and Arctic Monkeys
Not a britpop band. Very good though - Jiorl
Just because you're a British Pop band doesn't make you Britpop. - Gruunge
Coldplay Song Have Good Meaning, Good Song, Good Music, Good Voice.
If Someone Can Evaluate.
Suede's first three albums are the most perfect expression of a band that any group has ever achieved, they are relentless, neo-glam masterpieces, each distinct from the other, and Suede is the band from this list that I find myself revisiting most often...
I've heard all of Britpop bands on top 10 and I have to say that no Britpop band can be better than Suede. Suede is way so underrated.
Most of the bands in the top 10 aren't even Britpop. Suede are better than basically all of this list.9 Comments
I love all music of them, listen to: eyes open, final straw
Snow Patrol light up as if they have the choice which make them light up by being a successful band!
The Best of the Lot
In my humble opinion, these guys take the cake when it comes to Britpop. They have released some beautiful ballads throughout their discography. Try giving these songs a listen: On Your Own, History, Sonnet, Space and Time, Lucky Man, One Day, Sit and Wonder, Valium Skies and Appalachian Springs. It's too bad they quit after their last album Forth. That is my favorite work they've done to date and I'm sure they would've gone so much farther if they continued.
Great band. Bittersweet Symphony is one of my most favorite songs of all time, and Urban Hymns is one of the best albums of all time. They would have been as popular as Oasis and Coldplay had they continued.
This band are really good. The video for bitter sweet makes me laugh!1 Comment
Why am are written here twice?
NOT Britpop - ziggylfe
Best band of our today, it’s a fact. Who built the moon? Is a masterpiece, a work of art, it’s brilliant, Noel can’t do anything wrong, he’s the greatest songwriter from the last 20 years and he just keeps getting better, he truly is a godlike genius
The Bends is very much Britpop. - Adrian_4
I love Radiohead, but they shouldn't be on this list. They are NOT britpop. They are Art Rock.
How is Radiohead britpop? Kid A is like the polar opposite of Britpop.
Check out The Bends. That's how they're Britpop.
Kid A is not Britpop, but that's because it's from 2000, not because it's another genre. - Adrian_4
Radiohead hates britpop, why are they on this list?3 Comments
It's not fair that Oasis is at the top and Noel is at the bottom when clearly Liam should be at the very bottom.
An actual britpop band for starters
Should of been more popular
Better then more then half those bands..2 Comments
Nothing short of perfect! Somewhere only we know, nothing in my way, everybody's changing... One better that other :P
I love this band to bits as well as many others like oasis, blur and supergrass! Tom has an amazing voice and a total greater of god!
This is the last time I have written about this review.
The stone roses are a million times better than franz Ferdinand
(One of) only bands that mattered
Best of the best in my mind.
Not britpop really…amazing band but more like alt rock/prog rock
The only band that I know of that has no bad songs. All of Muse's songs are beautiful and epic, and Matt's voice is utter perfection.
Coldplay don't eve know which end of the guitar to fret on while muse is just good all round band
Deserves a better position for sure
I love there song Knee Socks
Lots of great bands but I'll jump on board with Placebo. Just think they've got that bit of extra class. In order the rest I'd go Keane, Radiohead, Cold Play, Blur, Monkeys, Manic Street, Snow Patrol, Pulp, Kasbian, Verve, Suede. Also bands like Doves, Editors, Kloot, Kooks, Death Cab (not sure if they're all British though)
Second best britpop band behind Oasis, The Verve in third.
Second best britpop band, Moseley Shoals is just amazing
Brilliant band very underrated. Brilliant albums
Why has no one mentioned this band yet? So sad...
Great Band - Jiorl
I like gays and milfs
Great band top 5 at least
Are Starsailor Britpop? If so they deserve a decent spot on this list
Giant Steps is a masterpiece
Not it's called triphop! Not britpop! - Slipperyjack40
I don't know why this isn't on the list but it is amazing! - jameelSAUCE
Their songs are catchy, with lyrics like light-hearted little vignettes of curtain-twitching suburbia, and front-woman Louise Wener had such beguiling stage presence, it's impossible not to remember them fondly.
