Take That? Um, No!

BBC Radio 2 just conducted a poll of its listeners, asking "Based on songwriting, lyrics, gigs, and showmanship, who is the greatest British band of all time?"

The appalling results:

5. Take That
4. Oasis
3. Rolling Stones
2. Beatles
1. Queen

The top three bands and their respective positions are infinitely arguable. But I can't stop staring at the list and thinking, "Where the FUCK is The Clash?" Oasis has always left me stone cold, but Take That? In the top five of all time? But not The Clash? Not The Who? Not Depeche Mode? Let me say this about that: "BWAH HA HA HA HA HA!!!"
