Oasis Report Abuse
This British super band had an amazing amount of commercial success with countless hits on the radio and on MTV. Unfortunately, due to fights between the Gallagher brothers, the band ultimately broke up. You'd think that with all that fighting their songs would've been edgier, but these guys are pure pop.

Blur Report Abuse
Sadly, these guys never really got the credit they deserved on American radio or on MTV, but this is definitely one of the most solid britpop bands of all time. While they have no shortage of excellent songs, some of my favorites are "Girls and Boys," "Coffee & TV," "Song 2" ... I could go on and on.

The Stone Roses Report Abuse
Even though their hit song "I Wanna Be Adored," kind of sounds like a slower more mellow version of the Stooges "I Wanna Be Your Dog," these guys produced one great album. However, they were never really heard from again.

Ride Report Abuse
Sadly for Ride, their bass player went on to join Oasis. But Ride were a great band before he went on to bigger and better things.

Pulp Report Abuse
Before frontman Jarvis Cocker left the band to persue a solo career, Pulp was one of the most influential britpop bands. Songs like "Common People" and "Disco 2000" are timeless classics that always succeed in triggering emotion.

Happy Mondays Report Abuse
Are they britpop or are they northern soul? Either way these guys really know how to write some catchy tunes.

The Smiths Report Abuse
Nothing beats the dulcet whiny tones of Morrisey. With Johnny Marr on guitar, The Smiths created catchy tunes that really capture youth culture.
