I fell in love with Blur's "Girls & Boys" the first time I heard it on the radio. At the risk of basing my entire vote on just one song, it shall be Blur I vote for!

Both bands are nice, but never stood out for me... if I were to base my vote on something it would be the fact that Oasis had two whopping hits with Wonderwall and Don't Look Back In Anger, which clearly win from Blur's Song 2!

So my vote goes to Oasis!! =)

Never was a fan of any of these bands but I will choose Blur because when I first listened to song 2 I fell in love with it instantly. Also I love to play girls and boys on lego rock band. I always liked oasis and never turn back in anger but my vote has to go to Blur this time

Oasis 2-5 Blur

This poll has run for several weeks, and it's time to freshen up with something rather different.

2 Tone was the style of music produced during the British Ska revival of the 1970s, which went onto influence Ska Punk of the 80s and 90s. Two of the foremost 2 Tone acts were:

The Specials

This is not easy... both are great bands with a widespreaded influence.
But imo The Specials represent the fragmentation of the whole ska-scene in their songwriting better than nay other band of the o-tone era, so ill vote for:

The Specials

*updated title*

*Sigh* I leave it for a whole month and only accrue a score of 1-1. I will post a new poll soon, but I'm too tired to think of a good one just now. Suggestions would be appreciated.
