Additionally, there were several, smaller groups of varying popularity (and quality) that rode the Britpop wave to a handful of chart singles. Among them are Dodgy, Menswear, Smaller, Mansun, Reef, Arnold, Mega City Four, Longpigs, Catatonia, The Lightning Seeds, Rialto, Jack, 60 Ft. Dolls, These Animal Men, Gene, Hurricane #1, Shed Seven, The Supernaturals, Northern Uproar, Babybird, Cast (formed by the backing vocalist of Britpop influencers The La's), Theaudience (notable for jumpstarting Music/SophieEllisBextor's career) and Music/MyLifeStory. Many of these groups were considered to be FollowTheLeader acts to the big names, and many never even managed a blip on the radar outside of the UK, but they all have their own devoted followings to this day.

Today, the genre survives in the form of Post-Britpop, an even ''less'' well-defined category that formed in mid-1998. It's occupied by bands like Music/{{Placebo}}, Music/{{Feeder}}, Stereophonics, Texas, Music/{{Keane}}, Music/{{Elbow}}, Music/{{Travis}}, Music/{{Peace}}, Swim Deep, Superfood, Music/SnowPatrol, Bell [=X1=], Athlete, Music/BlocParty, Embrace, Music/KaiserChiefs, Music/FranzFerdinand, Doves, Toploader, Music/{{Coldplay}}, China Rats, Idlewild, and [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Gay Dad]].

In the end, heaving under the weight of drugs, [[CreatorBacklash artist disillusionment]], and the continued failure by any band not named Oasis to break America, it collapsed in 1997: Oasis's long awaited third album ''Be Here Now'' was (and still is) the fastest selling album in British history, but it was equally quickly sold on to charity shops by disheartened fans and went down in history as an overhyped, dismal flop. Oasis chugged along, releasing well selling albums that got alright reviews until the band ended in an yet another squabble between the Gallagher brothers in 2009. Music/{{Blur}} turned away from the Britpop sound with their fifth album ''Blur'', paved the way for the GarageRock Revival of the 2000s, and unlike Oasis quit while they were ahead and still at the top of their game in 2003. Pulp continued to release critically adored albums for a few years before completely disappearing. However, both Blur and Pulp have since made comebacks (in 2015 and 2013, respectively). Supergrass somehow managed to outlive most of their second-tier Britpop competition, became a major player in the British alternative scene and existed until April 2010. {{Radiohead}} and The Verve, formerly 'the ones who did ''Creep''' and 'that shoegaze act', released ''OK Computer'' and ''Urban Hymns'', successful albums that moved the music scene onward. Bands like Space, The Supernaturals, Dodgy, Puressence and The Charlatans have either since reformed or simply stuck around long enough.
