While us Americans are fans of Britpop, most of us are not particularly well-versed in the genre. Sure, we know about the Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, Oasis, and Radiohead’s “Creep,” but past that, not really. I don’t know any Americans who even know who Pulp is, even though they are a completely awesome band with intelligent lyrics. Thanks to the glory of Wikipedia, I’ve learned they had 4 top #10 releases in the UK, two of them being #1. By comparison, their highest ranking in America was #114. We were probably too busy listening to Backstreet Boys or something.
