Radiohead are followed by Revolver by The Beatles and the Stone Roses’ self-titled debut. The poll conducted by Q of 11.000 people voted two other Radiohead albums (‘In Rainbows’ on 40, ‘The Bends’ on 11) ended up in the list of 50 British albums.
Q’s editor, Paul Rees, said Oasis had polled three times more votes than any other act on his publication’s list, making them “undoubtedly the nation’s most-loved band”. “In a list that features the likes of Radiohead’s OK Computer and The Beatles’ Revolver, this is a testament to the popularity of Oasis and their music.”
