Default L*******l named England's most musical city

Liverpool named England's 'most musical city' | News | NME.COM

Really? Liverpool? Why beacuse of The Beatles? That's one band, other citys are more deserving. I think the title should have gone to Manchester I mean all the great bands The Smiths/Morrissey, Stone Roses, Joy Division/New Order, Oasis, The Verve, The Fall, Happy Mondays.....the list goes on man. My second choice would of been London The Who, The Clash, Sex Pistols.....ect. Liverpool? Wtf?

I'm sure Right Track will be ecstatic with this result!

The La's (and Cast!!!!!), Echo and the Bunnymen and Frankie Goes to Hollywood came from Liverpool. I have to agree with you, Manchester gets my vote. So many important artists.

Yah, frankly I think we all know very well that the only city that should have won this is London.

Manchester is overrated.

London should be the clear winner, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Who, Queen, Elvis Costello, The Clash, Cream and Yes seal the deal for me.

I don't think I could pick myself.

Especially between London and Manchester.

I don't really see what Liverpool has done thats so special other than Merseybeat and a few indie bands in the 80s.

London could probably be discounted because that's where the music industry is based. Of the list Boo Boo gave , Led Zeppelin were from Birmingham , Pink Floyd started in Cambridge and Elvis Costello spent the first years of his career in Liverpool.

I was thinking more based on where they got popular and were based at for most of their career.
