Who Sang It: The Britpop Edition

Time to test your knowledge.
Mar 19th 2019, 8:01 AM 5,873 4

BETWEEN 1993 AND 1997, ‘Britpop’ dominated the popcultural landscape.

While certain British bands were at its helm, the movement transcended the music industry in the UK, and could be found in various other manifestations in the worlds of fashion, politics and art.

In this instance, however, we’re most interested in the bands – or more specifically the lyrics – which embodied the mid 90s, and that’s where you come in.

It’s time to match the lyrics to the ‘Britpop’ bands.
