   schema:reviewBody ""In the early 1990s, England seemed as dominated by the Nirvana-led grunge explosion as the USA, but as the decade reached its midpoint, something unexpected happened. Led by the likes of Blur, Oasis, Elastica, and Suede, UK rock rediscovered its confidence, tapping back into the spirit of The Beatles and Stones, and giving rise to the phenomenon quickly tagged "Cool Britannia." Drawing on interviews from all the major bands, as well as key players in the music business, Britpop! charts the rise and fall of this cultural moment: its trail-blazing beginnings, its hedonistic peak, and it eventual drug-fueled demise. The result is a narrative, shot through with drama, excess, rivalry, and romance."--Book jacket." ;
