Find Me On:
Apparently, they included Creep, far from being Radiohead’s best song, but I suppose it was the one that first got them noticed.
NME has always been a hangout for pretentious adolescents whose posturing is intended to make them seem cool. However, they’ve really surpassed themselves with this laughable list, which contains few tracks worthy of inclusion. The pro-Brit bias is embarassing even for me, born in London. I don’t think Joy Division, Pulp, New Order, Smiths, Specials, Oasis or Cure should even feature.
Putting Beatles behind their 3rd rate copyists Oasis is really saying the compilers haven’t got a clue about music (not that I’d have selected Day in the Life, any way).
I’m quite familiar with all the tracks listed apart from the Dizzee Rascal, which I’ve just heard for the 1st time. I wasn’t at all impressed, but I don’t listen to that particular sub-genre and wouldn’t claim to know if it’s good of its type.
The failure to include Hendrix’s All Along the Watchtower is the most obvious omission for me as it’s better than all the tracks included. I’m a big fan of Massive Attack, so I’d have selected Group Four. And so on.
Mediocre. Band made 2 good albums, but didn’t have anything to offer after that.
