Battle of the what?

On the way home, at JA's request we listened to a bit of Radio 2, with 'Whispering' Bob Harris thinking of the money and apparently covering for Chris Evans.

It turns out that Radio 2 are currently having a competition for the "BEST BRITISH BAND", like ever and there's a shortlist of five.

Come on, the first four are easy: The Beatles at number one, then stick The Who, The Rolling Stones and Queen in whatever order you like.

Hmm, what to have for number five? It's quite difficult...

Then he mentions that Take That are on the shortlist.

Erm, excuse me. Take That are certainly a popular 'group' but not even their more rabid fans would call them a 'band'. Bands play instruments, as in the sort of 'backing band' TT relied on from day one.

If we're going to ignore that, let's ignore 'British' and stick Kraftwerk in at number two.

Oh, looking at the website, it seems the Radio 2 audience thinks both Oasis and Take That are a 'greater' band than The Who. What's scary is that these people have votes in more important elections.
