Default Britpop tiers

Same idea as the other tier thread. For fun come up with a tier system for Britpop bands

Tier 1: Doves, Coldplay, Elbow, The Verve, Blur
Tier 2: Snow Patrol, Suede, Thirteen Senses, I Am Kloot, A Silent Film, Kula Shaker
Tier 3: Pulp, Starsailor, Spiritualized, Embrace, Elastica, Supergrass, Oasis

I would've put Pulp higher and Snow Patrol lower. Oh and Suede are much, much better than Coldplay, in my eyes.

I really liked Suedes first album but that's about it.

In terms of impact, surely Oasis is top tier?

I'd add the Manic Street Preachers (they were briefly called Britpop).

This isn't an impact tier though. It's a quality tier just like the other one. I thought about adding M.S.P. but if I added them I'd probably have to add Ride too. In the end those bands arent as known for Britpop as much as other styles.

Super Furry Animals were great in those days, although they might be a bit more obscure and it's debatable whether they were considered Britpop.

Britpop has one of the worst shit to good ratio's of any genre that has produced some great stuff

It's about tied with Grunge

I forgot about Kula Shaker. I like their more recent stuff. They turned out to be pretty good. They are probably second tier.

Is Catherine Wheel an alternate alias for Elphenor?

What kind of music fan stresses so much about "genre tiers"....

Preposterous

It's funny how the Stone Roses are nowhere on his list... Yet he includes Oasis, Coldplay, Verve, Blur, snow patrol, kula shaker, supergrass ETC who are ALL on record stating that they've been heavily influenced by The Stone Roses.

I find Stone Roses to be a really bland version of the "House Rock" Happy Mondays played.

Happy Mondays were a lot more 'popular' than their music warranted, if you ask me

I really, really like their first album. It's all I wanted to listen to for about a month. It's very much The Clash on MDMA

Happy Mondays have so much more personality even if they're technically awful

CW I know you've mentioned Rate Your Music before, but do you have an account there? It seems like the sort of thing that you'd really love.
