Yes to the above.

Though to be fair, Queen had a good run up to 85, Oasis had a good run mid 90s.

Libertines were neither here nor there, like as you say, 90% of modern pop music is.

Radiohead
Arctic Monkeys
Bruce Springsteen
The Libertines
Green Day
Weezer
Kings Of Leon
Kanye West
Maroon 5
Oasis
The Smiths/Morrissey
The Stone Roses

I think Queen were an alright singles band... you could make a pretty good single disc of their best ones. But their albums are 70% bullshit.

Ok, here's one that could lead to namecalling: Talking Heads. "Remain In Light" is every bit as great as its reputation, but I cannot understand what's so great about their other albums, the odd song excepted.

Alt-J... most annoying.

Agree about Prince (overall). But he was prominent in a time when music was synthetic anyway.

Bit harsh on the Stones, Led Zep & Radiohead.

Don't know Arcade Fire enough to judge.

I adore Arcade Fire. They deserve to be one of the world's most critically acclaimed bands IMO.
