I'd like to add that the good majority of their singles (90% or so) have little to no grunge influence. They have pretty much followed trends and have put out pretty standard fair rock. Sooooo yeah.

I never listened much to Foo Fighters.. they are not really the most famous band around here. But they don't seem to captivate me, really.

Queens of the Stone Age however do, even though they needed some getting used to. But I really like some of their songs, the album Songs for the Deaf is a great CD! So they get my vote.

Queens destroyed the Foos so I think this can be updated.

You'll have to provide me with some links. I'm not an expert in the field of rock, especially after 1990, so I may be confusing grunge with one of the other depressing rock variants that stemmed from that general era.

All of the Foos' songs.

When you consider that their first album wasn't released until '95, there really wasn't much room for grunge in the first place.

Queens of The Stone Age win 5 votes to 3.

Britpop was a style of music prevalent in the UK in the 1990s, inspired by Guitar Pop of the 60s and 70s, and part of the culture known as Cool Britannia. It is, essentially, the Alt-Rock anti-grunge. The style was epitomised by the chart rivalry of two bands:

Oasis

Don't Look Back in Anger
Wonderwall
She's Electric
Shakermaker
Rock n Roll Star

VS

Blur

Girls and Boys
Parklife
Song 2
End of a Century
Tracy Jacks

Now that you have kindly indulged my love of Alt-Rock, I'd like your suggestions for the next battle. I was considering maybe some Motown?

Never was a fan of both of 'em, maybe Oasis would never be that famous without these Gallagher brothers... so i`ll vote for:

Blur

*title change thingy*

Also never was a big fan of either, but I find Blur to have more catchy hooks (from the songs you listed anyway).

In the 90's, I would have said Oasis because it's closer to what I was into back then, but today, I vote for Blur because they sound like a more fun band.

Both are alright bands. I grew up in Britain in the 90s so I heard them more than I would have liked to. I always liked Oasis more between the two of them. Reminded me of The Beatles a bit.
