I'm going to have to say yes. They're well liked here, well liked everywhere, and I enjoyed Modern Life Is Rubbish.

In what way? Not that Britpop is a genre, but in what way is it pretentious?

I swear half the kids on here learn that word from this forum.

I'd say if anything it's the least pretentious movement out there.
It was basically one big 3 year long party, and then everybody fucked off.

It didn't pretend to be anything it wasn't and it died just as quick as it started.
I don't see anything pretentious about that.

How about the fact that the biggest names in the genre completely denounce grunge music (which I'm not even the biggest fan of, before we open up them worms) and saw themselves as these musical savours and geniuses. The music is fine, yes. But the acts assumed too much about themselves.

Of course I'm a 16 year old American boy, so I have probably have no f-cking clue what I'm talking about.

They pretended that they were worth listening to.

And Blur was the only that actually was.

So...every Britpop band did that? Like, every single one of them?

Only Britpop bands who didn't make sh-t music, minus Sleeper.
