Round 3 is in the books and Marvin Gaye came out on top of Elvis Presley and Don McLean.

Round 4 promises to be a fierce affair, the array of familiar songs I personally could select is staggering. Although clearly Britpop isn't to everyone's tastes. Poor Union was so befuddled by it all he's sitting this round out meaning he adds a 4th 0 to his score.

Go forth and vote (for your favourite TWO).

Round 5 will be a corker because you'll all be selecting songs by your favourite boybands. Before you ask, The Beatles are not a boyband. The Rolling Stones are not a boyband.

NOTE: A boyband is a group of two or more male vocalists that did not play instruments themselves and went under a silly alias like 911 or A1.

Why would you do a round of boybands only on a mostly male forum based around sports, I hear you ask? Because it'll amuse me to get PMs from grown, often professional working men, filled with their favourite song by 5ive.

Reasons for some of the choices from the good folk who selected them:

song 2 by Blur please - When that killer "woohooo" kicks in, everyone recognises the song and starts moshing. Iconic and defined the whole era.

3) Take That- Relight My Fire

Not as good as new and improved Take That but utterly passable.

One of the most under-rated bands in my book. Should have been a 'Big 3' with them joining Oasis and Blur. Everyone knows their songs from the Different Class album. This is one of their earlier numbers, and one of their best.

Alright - Supergrass ..................... A great summer anthem of a song that was everywhere , and that video got me out on my bike with my mates for numerous drunken pub crawls around the countryside around here .

1st choice - Whatever by Oasis. Not only is it Oasis's greatest song, but it is the best song ever written ever. Ever. EVER!

Charmless Man. During the 90s I was always an 'Oasis Man' out of them and Blur. Since then though I have realised how much I prefer Blur's music.

Common People - Pulp; She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge. Sing along godammit! Geek chic 20 year before its time. Whilst everyone was embroiled in the Blur v Oasis battle, the real Britpop band just got on with creating anthems such as this. Jarvis Cocker, we salute you!

After Hours write up - Not your typical in your face Britpop song, neither the over the top attempts at ballads Oasis did. Listen to it before you vote, its a class song. And Edgar Wright (of Hot Fuzz, Spaced and Shaun of the Dead fame) directed the video.

Any song that contains the line "Strap on Sally chased us down the alley, We feared for our behinds" deserves to win this round! Also has a great guitar intro and a catchy chorus.

Reason: When a list is made of the best songs of the 90s, You Get What You Give shouldn't be missed out. It's a class song by a band which disappeared after releasing it but were totally underrated.

Elastica - 2:1 - had to use the wikepedia link to see which groups count as Britpop & was ecstatic to see that I knew a few, recognise this song from the Trainspotting soundtrack which is enough to earn plaudits on its own

New Radicals are miles from Britpop, in country and genre. Shame as they are the best band on there.

I went for Song 2 and Common People

By my own criteria, they are. They won't get the votes of course but I checked before I let them go on.

I like how they don't though appear on the timeline. Sorry but they are certainly not Britpop. Might as well have Spice Girls and East 17 in there too.

I am really surprised at how poor this round is with a ll the great songs to pick from!

I would have thought something like unfinished symphony, this is how it feels and Theres no other Way would have all featured.

I agree I wouldn't class them as Britpop, but I can't reject the song because by the criteria I used it passed the test.

No one remembers East 17 for their music either, only for the guy that ran himself over.

Easy - Suede and Pulp. Britpop history is so wrapped up in Blur vs Oasis, but these two bands were far cooler.

Animal Nitrate is by far the best song availible here. Suede did so many awesome tracks.

And I've gone for Common People, because its such an ANTHEM!

Thank you, Demon. I hadn't been much into Suede until recently but they were great and their new album is pretty good too as it goes.

I haven't checked out their new album yet. Worth a listen then? I'll look it up.

I got Suede's greatest hits a few years back because I never owned any of their CD's, I always borrowed my aunty's... and it is jam packed with cool tunes that stand up as fresh today as they did then.

I think it's worth a listen. They haven't really tried to reinvent themselves, it just sounds like Suede. "Bloodsports" it's called.

I thought they would have, although Thom Yorke would hate to be. Two of the best bands of the 90's though.

Round 5 will be a corker because you'll all be selecting songs by your favourite boybands. Before you ask, The Beatles are not a boyband. The Rolling Stones are not a boyband. If they weren't in Smash Hits magazine in the 90s they weren't a boyband, so there is your criteria.

My choice were in Smash Hits in the 80s, does that count?

No - boybands have been around longer than that. I was being slightly facetious when I said they had to be in Smash Hits in the 90s. Although that is a fairly good guide as to where to find them.

Suede were around before Britpop as well.

True, but their sound is synonymous with Britpop I would say.

Whereas whilst Blur and Oasis were battling for number 1, the Manics were releasing "The Holy Bible" - which is pretty far removed from Britpop.

Though admittedly "Everything Must Go" briefly succumbed to the 90's sound - that was only for one album though.

I think we also need clarity on what a boy band constitutes.

For example, you could say that Queen were a boy band as they were all male.

Yes, Everything Must Go was more britpop than their early stuff. Another top album.

Ok, how about this:

A group of two or more male vocalists that did not play instruments themselves and went under a silly alias like 911 or A1.

Surprised nobody went for Live Forever, which I'd say is probably the best Oasis song.

Would have chosen Laid or Destiny Calling if I'd've known James were Britpop. Curse my ignorance - already looking like another round without scoring.

Would anyone have voted for Lucky Man? I prefer it to Bittersweet Symphony and was stuck between that, Live Forever (which I actually had then changed picard ) and my choice.

Live Forever is the best Oasis song, then Don't Look Back in Anger. I'm not a huge fan of Oasis, mainly because I don't rate Liam Gallagher as a singer. I think Noel is actually a better singer, as well as obviously being the better song writer.

I'd rate Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds as better than Oasis, it's a shame that Noel didn't leave the much less talented brother earlier.

I love Lucky Man, was on the radio yesterday actually too. History as well I'd have over Bittersweet and the dirge that was Drugs don't Work.

I can see that there will be a lot of controversy with picks in the next round (of New Radicals proportion!).

For example, Take That are a boy band but Gary played Piano - so do they qualify?
