Top of the Pops

Discussion in 'The Clubhouse Bar' started by St Helens RLFC, Jun 21, 2006.

  1. Has been axed.

    Will you miss it? Did you watch it? Do you think its axing is fine or totally unacceptable? Will you even know it's gone?

  3. Used to watch it when I was younger, but it's been steadily going downhill to the point of being awful.

    You know when they move it to Sunday evenings on BBC2 then it's in trouble.

    It's the sort of franchise that could easily be brought back again if anyone was really desperate anyway.

    I would like to see them keep the Top of the Pops 2, which has all the older records on, as some of them are really quite interesting...

    If you know what I mean...

    I agree that it has well truely done its time tho, the modern generation dont really go for it like they used to.. and I was never truely a fan of it...
     
  5. Let's be honest, MTV has steadily killed it.

    30 minutes of music, of which you usually only like one track, doesn't really cut it when you can put on a music channel and listen to what you want.
     
  6. Totally agree, I watch Scuzz and Kerrang for my musical need myself.

    Big difference, we are geeks for we use internet forums. EMO's are depressed chavs.

    The only thing I'll remember Top of the Pops for is when they wouldn't let Nirvana play thier instrutments live, so Kurt Cobain sang Smells like Teen Spirit like a funeral song, and changed the opening words to "Load up on drugs, kill your friends" and you could see Krist and Dave in the background looking like Unco's pretending to play their instrutments.

    and kurt didnt really play the guitar? only moved his hand like a pendulum infront of it? i think they played that on some Nirvana special on C4 a while ago and it was pretty funny lol
