    Not as far as 98. But yeah, they were good. So were The Verve tbh. Maybe they were worlds best band. Any others you can think of?

    Definitely contenders, not that I think it should be a competition. After all, some bands are incomparable, and trying to do so is just plain silly. Don't make generalisations and completely ignore other bands, but yes, definitely one of the best and most successful at that time. No band should ever claim to be the best, however.

    They were untouchable because they had the musical form of leprosy, which can mutate and cause drab and thoughtless lyricism and mindless guitar rock, not because they were "the greatest band in the world".

    This.

    PS. Guess who I'm a fan of :awesome: lulz...

    No, but seriously - they're a good band, but actually I much prefer their more recent stuff as opposed to their 90's days - 'Fade Away' is the only track from back then that I think is excellent. Their other stuff was catchy but it didn't really have much effect on me.

    My personal opinion would be that Pantera were better during the particular period you mentioned

    What, because I don't agree with you? And you obviously haven't listened to enough music to make a sweeping statement like you did.
    Are you an idiot or just some pathetic troll?

    Read my first post and read what you've just written.

    I don't see the problem. I replied "no", as in, no they were not the greatest band in the world during that period in my opinion, I'm sure even sensible Oasis fans (such as 'Champange Supernova' who posted earlier) would agree that they were not 'undoubtably (sic) the greatest band in the world at that time".

    Now, are you going to reply with something intelligent or just keep calling me an idiot because I disagree with you? Because if it's the latter, I think it's you that's the pathetic troll.

    And if you want me to elaborate on my original post, here are some bands I think were making far more interesting music during that time period you mentioned:

    Radiohead, Pavement, Yo La Tengo, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Manic Street Preachers, Beck, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Modest Mouse, Spiritualized, Blur, I could probably go on but it's not worth the effort.

    Your turn. :awesome:

    Yep, I agree with most of the sentiments in that post.

    I've also highlighted the bands I'd pick out as being great influences of that period. :top:

    I was pretty young but I know which songs came out from that period you mentioned anyway. Oasis were very good but hardly 'untouchable'.. Damon Albarn can testify to that

    Overrated, but still one of the best bands in the country, and one of the best live acts I've seen.

    Radiohead relased OK Computer in 1997, and The Bends in 1995. Nuff said.

    Blur are better overall, but Definitely Maybe > Parklife. None of the members of Blur are idiots either.
