    I've heard rumours that Britpop is starting to take off quite a lot now in the States... is it coming out into the mainstream? It's so much better than nu-metal after all...

    I just don't like nu/death metal. I agree that Gomez rule, and I am really very fond of Jamiroquai, as well as enjoying classic punk (the Clash, the Buzzcocks). I like Dire Straits, and Five were the best thing since sliced bread. I do have a broad musical taste, but it's everything in moderation- I quite like 'Break Stuff' by Limp Bizkit, but I couldn't listen to a whole album all the way through. Each to his own.

    Oh, and it has been good for me... it's so much easier to take the mickey out of other people's music when you can give evidence as to WHY it's all crap...
     
  4. Coldplay's had a hit or two but I can't think of anyother Britpop-ers that are on the charts right now...Radiohead's pretty popular here, though.

    Britpop is already dead again in Europe...
     
  8. It's making a bit of resurgence in the indie scene, but more along the lines of stuff like Pulp, Suede, and Rialto.

    I just wish Swervedriver would put out a new record...
     
  9. Really? It's alive and well up here.
     
  10. Yeah, but you have Sigur Ros, which is better than pretty much any britpop band currently in existence.
     
  11. I can stand any britpop except for Blur. Sorry to all the fans, but I really cant stand them at all. they are the only band I refuse to listen to
