Many to choose from.

Although I don't listen to them much anymore, The Smiths were at the top of my Manchester list for years, Joy Division and stone roses up there as well.

The 'Madchester' sound and the so called 'second summer of love' :flower: defined my late teens and i still listen to lots of that music now.

Hard to believe the Stone Roses first album was released 23 years ago :blink:

Couldnt agree with you more, but him and Johnny Marr together made some of the music that I really enjoyed in College. He is such a tool though.

Morrisey- words can't describe how much of a nipple this guy is. One of the few people in the world who manages to make Bono look like a pleasent person.

I hated the whole 'madchester' scene growing up and to this day I still can't listen to Oasis, The Charlatans, The Stone Roses, etc. It just seemed like a master class in how to be obnoxious.

I didn't know the Chemical Brothers were from Manchester, they'd probably get my vote as well.

in terms of popular rock whatever, a couple of current good bands,


I am Kloot.

The hollies were also pretty respected worldwide, with Graham Nash going on to CSNY fame.

I also hated the whole packaging thing, like the Britpop's just music, be it good or bad...
