MJ, you need to provide a source for all the images otherwise they'll be removed in a short period of time.

i'm not a HUGE britpop fan. but listening to this music really takes me back to being younger so i have a place in my heart for it. last month i went to see richard ashcroft and that brought back so many memories...he was really quite wonderful. i also saw kula shaker earlier in the year which brought me right back in time, they were suprisingly good even though they're a bit of a guilty pleasure!!

also some music i really love gets classed as britpop.

ultimate tunes of this era have to be...

pulp-misshapes, disco 2000, common people (ANTHEM)
blue - coffee and tv
kula shaker - govinda, hush..
the verve - lucky man, drugs don't work, bittersweet symphony
elastica -connection
mansun (sort of britpop) - stripper vicar
manic street preachers <3 - a design for life, everything must go, kevin carter

but lets forget about menswe@r

I love all the "Britpop" bands!! About two weeks ago I saw the Live Forever documentary and I also just bought the Blur DVD with their videoclips (because their videos were so great). Personally I think both Blur and Oasis are fantastic. Why can't we all just get along?

britpop = nostalgia for me. From the age of 8-11 I spent all my time listening to Blur, Pulp, Suede.. a little bit of Oasis, but only the first two albums because in my opinion the rest is crap. I definitely love britpop.
Are the Stone Roses considered britpop? I think they sort of stirred/started the whole thing didn't they?

Here's some other quality bands from this era:

SHED SEVEN!!!
The Bluetones
Echobelly
Cast
The Longpigs
Ash (before they went metal)
Dodgy
Lightning Seeds
Sleeper
Ocean Colour Scene
Ah such, great times

Blur could actually be my favourite band ever, although it's such a difficult decision to make

^YES Ocean Colour Scene! Moseley Shores forever.

ASH WENT METAL? Good god. Glad I missed that one

LOVE Britpop. If the Stone Roses and Manics count, they are legendary. In terms of pure Britpop, I always loved Pulp and Supergrass best. Blur had their moments. Oasis... Oasis NEVER did. They were a bunch of crap. But hey the mindless common man that populates the British Isles probably saw his connection with the mindless Gallaghers and propelled them to the stratosphers. Their music is nigh on unbearable, anthems aside. If I hear another busker do Wonderwall, I might just go all Patrick Bateman on them.

But other stuff like Kula Shaker, My Vitriol, heck Ash, is pretty mediocre but I think people remember them because of the nostalgia for the decade.

and i think Manic Street... counts as brit pop!!!

i love blur the best cos they never got to big, they were funny at start,but then hitted big time at one point,i think 1996, and after that they really made only music for fans... they didn't have that 'america success' trip... i think they were more honest than oasis in musical terms...

but oasis' best for me are ciggaterts and alcohol and my big mouth and i adore the song d'you know what i mean...
i miss them,and i never heard any brit pop band live, so please, if u have some personal pics post them,please!!! my country was politacaly ruined,so we had a period of more than a decade when none foreign band was able to come, exceps the prodigy in 1995...
