Oasis have dominated a vote by NME readers to establish the Greatest Britpop Anthem Of All Time with the top five spots all being filled by songs from the band.

‘Live Forever’, the 1994 single taken from the bad’s debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’, topped the poll and was closely followed by ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, ‘Supersonic’ and ‘Cigarettes & Alcohol’, with ‘Wonderwall’ finishing in fifth spot. The Manchester band did not get any other songs into the top 20, however, with all of the remaining slots taken by songs from Pulp, Suede, Blur and Supergrass.

Pulp‘s ‘Common People’, which came top of the recent list compiled by NME writers and famous fans, finished in sixth spot. The Sheffield band proved popular with voters also selecting their songs ‘Disco 2000’, ‘Sorted For E’s & Wizz’ and ‘This Is Hardcore’ in the top 20.
