the verve. end of really, they were always the better band, they just overdid it with the drugs, in oh such a romantic way.
You have it about right; in the 90s they were just about the biggest British bands on the planet, and the US music press lumped them together under the umbrella of "britpop" and their songs were competing in the charts with one another. There's even a wiki article on it, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Battle_of_Britpop

Oasis is so much better!
And it's typical american to say Song 2 rules! You never heard of Blur, except for that song! Beetlebum is way better and got less recognition.
I do like Blur, but Oasis are better songwriters, and have consistently made better records. Like the new one, which is fucking awesome!
A ghost is all that's left, of everything we swore we never would forget. Tried to bleed the sickness, but we drained our hearts instead. We are...we are the dead.
Pity The Verve got sweeped under the carpet because of all this, because they genuinely were more talented than Oasis or Blur could ever hope to be.
