Top 10 Britpop anthems

Post by Rubi » 16 Mar 2015, 22:16

WatchMojo just released a Top 10 Britpop Anthems list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8w71GonwPU

Can't say I agree with all of it (the Manics never belonged to Britpop in the first place), but anyway, what's your own list?

I'll go first:

01. Blur - Girls & Boys
02. Pulp - Common People
03. Suede - Trash
04. Oasis - Live Forever
05. Kula Shaker - Hey Dude!
06. Elastica - Connection
07. Super Furry Animals - Something 4 the Weekend
08. Supergrass - Alright
09. Sleeper - Nice Guy Eddie
10. The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony

Blur - Popscene
Pulp - Do You Remember the First Time?
Suede - Animal Nitrate
Supergrass - Alright
Oasis - Some Might Say
Elestica - Waking Up
Echobelly - King of the kerb
Kenickie - Punka
Sleeper - inbetweener
The Bluetones - slight Return

And one extra as a guilty pleasure...Menswear - Daydreamer
