They've got a lot of the dates wrong: Come to Daddy was nothing like 2007, Cash's hurt was nothing like 1995, f'rinstance.

Also, it's quite useful for carbon dating when I entirely stopped paying attention to this sort of music - sometime in the middle of 2004. I've not heard many of the songs after than (apart from the proper pop ones) but I've heard nearly all of the ones before then.

They've got the wrong Winehouse song in the top 10. They've picked a lot of the wrong pop songs.

You can tell that NME's had a big turnaround in staff - there's no way that the Spice Girls would be anywhere near this sort of list with the late-90s clutch of writers (period pains maybe).

I think most of all it's worrying how much of this list I do remember - I'm guessing a lot of the writers are probably my age and used this to be a bit nostalgic. Which begs the question - wot, no Gene? (And the less said about the Bluetones the better).

It's as bad as what you would expect from the NME.

I'd yawn, but they don't seem worth the effort.

What an arbitrary length of time to judge from. The past 15 years? 1996 is the earliest year then? Like that year in particular brought forth any revolutionary music?

It's the year NME.COM debuted.
