Check this list - Radio X ‘Best of British’


#1

Obviously some amazing tunes, but it’s not very diverse is it? Not even any women.


#2

Who voted? A load of morons?


#3

imagine thinking 20% of the best ever British songs were by Stereophonics


#4

Well I for one am shocked at the lack of diversity in the consensus opinions of radio x listeners


#5

The list is officially horse shit. No Depeche Mode or The Cure.


#6

No surprises at all. Lists like this are easily picked apart, even Noel Gallagher nails the demographic in the article.


#7

Well RadioX have just lost themselves a listener!!!


#8

I had a look last night and counted two women (Gillian Gilbert and Candida Doyle) and one black man (Gary Powell). Otherwise, it’s 100% white male.

I kinda feel sorry for the people who voted in this. Imagine being that boring.


#9

lads! lads! lads!


#10

It’s bc they played kasabian early on and most of the diverse records flew out before the emergency roofers could arrive to the radio x hq


#11

It is good to know that you can open a commercial radio station with nothing but a load of Shine compilations.


#12

‘Shiiiiiinnnneeeeee’


#13

“Well, Bands A, B & C should have been on the list a lot more, and who voted for bands X, Y & Z? And how does ____ get fewer votes than ####?”

Amusing and predictable reactions to this poll on this forum. It’s a POLL, so much like a pop chart. I expect to see a few songs that I love, a few that I dislike intensely, and quite a lot that I don’t care about one way or the other, and that’s exactly what I find. No great surprises for me here.


#14

Hmm yeah thats sort of missing the point entirely


#15

But he’s put it in quotes so it must be something we’ve said


#16

I didn’t even know there was a Radio 9.


#17

Erm, I think you’re forgetting She Bangs The Drums is on the list too??

Like literally it even says there’s a woman playing the drums on it! How much more diversity do you people want!?


#18

What is your favourite British song of all time?

The answer is Dakota by the Stereophonics.


#19

No Way No Way by Vanilla was snubbed, therefore this list can be cheerfully ignored.


#20

Didn’t they market themselves as exclusively for men back at launch?
