The List Only Brits Will Get

List is bands that have remained massive in the UK while the rest of the world has stopped caring years ago.

The level of airplay these guys still get - *twenty years* after becoming shit! - is off the charts. Think of how much airplay the most insanely overhyped, overplayed Top 40 hit ever got. That's EVERY Oasis single in the UK.
2The Stone Roses

Maybe it was just a Manchester thing, but when they had a reunion gig a few years ago, it seemed like EVERYONE attended it.
3The Killers

Mr. Brightside has never left the British charts since being released. In *2003*. Enough said.

Also, 'Human'.
4The Prodigy

Their singles are still very much part of the cultural zeitgeist, and occasionally get airplay. They're also one of the few truly cross-generational bands - it is not unheard of for people in their 20s, 30s and 50s to all be engaging in conversation about how good Prodigy were.
5Kaiser Chiefs

Not everyone likes them anymore, and their biggest hits are seen as overplayed and a bit annoying, but many people still have plenty of time for them.

They're not exactly unpopular elsewhere in the world, but they're not as talked about anymore - except in Britain, where Viva La Vida and Yellow are still on the radio on a regular basis.
