* SlummingIt: The genre was marked by a tendency to idealise and imitate traditional English working class culture, despite the affluent backgrounds of many of the musicians. This attitude was aggressively criticised by one of the biggest hit singles of Britpop, Pulp's "Common People".

He has however described it as a response to the "class tourism" of bands like Blur.

Despite the eager tagging of bands, what exactly Britpop ''was'' is difficult to define. Among the earliest adapters were Music/TheStoneRoses in 1989 (who themselves were part of "Madchester", a sort of halfway point between HouseMusic and Britpop), but they never lived up to the promise of their first album. Then there were Music/TheLas, who were either twenty years ahead of their time or twenty behind. Music/ManicStreetPreachers, a Welsh group that was influenced equally by GlamRock, PunkRock and American hard rock, were another early innovator of the Britpop sound (and actually wound up lasting longer than most of the bands that were directly influenced by them). Indie pop groups who had been around for more than five years, such as The Lightning Seeds (fronted by Ian Broudie, a founding member of pioneering PostPunk group Big in Japan) and Denim (formed out of the ashes of Music/{{Felt}}), also began to find attention around this time.
