People, Muse were around in the 90s!
Definitely Arctic Monkeys, not only did they win numerous awards but their lyrics are always deep and meaningful.
And anyway, he said our era... the 90s were our era too.
muse were very late 90s too - but that aside then muse.
Unless some massive band shoots to fame this year, which is unlikely, your dad is probably right. Coldplay is as close as we come.
Not much of real note in 00s British music. Some damn strong stuff on the other side of the pond, though.
..and Kasabian but that would be cheating cause they were 1999
Oh..i forgot Arctic Monkeys
