Shockingly bad page. John Robb did not come up with the expression "Britpop", and Sounds folded three years before Britop even happened. Sounds was a good paper - it deserves better than this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.86.50.152 (talk) 18:48, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

I have a vague recollection that John Robb did indeed coin the term Britpop, but he applied it to the Madchester/baggy bands of the late 80s/early 90s; a coinage that clearly failed to stick. Britpop as applied to bands such as Blur and Oasis was (I think) the work of Stuart Maconie in NME. Matthau (talk) 04:52, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
