    The NME and Melody Maker used to be greatness. Sure they built up and knocked down bands even 25 years years ago but they did it with wit and panache.


    thing is... even 20 years ago 'Sounds' was so much better.

      The fact that this list was generated by a music magazine like NME officially invalidates the whole list

            The last time I actually read an issue of NME or Melody Maker from cover to cover was around 1991. It's changed a bit since then I imagine.

              Cool, I will check it out. I sort of missed out on that whole period of alt rock - mid to late 90s? I was pretty mellowed out at that time.


              Yeah, pulp got lumped in with the whole Britpop thing in the second half of the 90's, I was never really a fan at the time but all those songs are still stuck in my head today, so they are catchy if nothing else.

                a much better choice than Yesterday (which probably would have been there if this was a Rolling Stone list).


                I never Loved that song until I heard McCartney sing it live in Miami a couple of years ago. It was like he had written a song in his 20s knowing that he would genuinely feel it when he was 70. Truly EPIC.

                    Seems like these are the same old geezers at NME who would have made the same list 20 years ago. Madonna before anything by the Stooges? These guys are heavy.

                      "Love Will Tear Us Apart" isn't even the best song by Joy Division.

                      Billy Bragg - New England

                      New Order - Love Vigilantes
                      Buffalo Tom - Darl
                      Dinosaur Jr - In A Jar
                      Mission of Burma - Academy Fight Song
                      Elvis Costello - I Want You
                      Buzzcocks - Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)
                      Split Enz - Six Months In A Leaky Boat
                      Wire - Outdoor Miner

                      The Mekons - Chivalry
                      Yo La Tengo - Sugarcube
                      Sonic Youth - Mary Christ

                                There are some good songs on that list. Would I do it different? Yeah, but I can't really fault anything on it.
