I'm indifferent to Haim. They're just... well, generally fairly bland and unremarkable. Don't know how they've polled so strongly.

London Grammar I feel like I should enjoy more than I do. The vocalist has a great voice, and they make some cool downtempo-ish music, but they just don't quite achieve greatness.

Prior to this I had never heard of The Preatures but I don't like the similarity of their name to one of my all time favourite bands.

It's like being at a nightclub where everyone has poisoned themselves and you're the only one who hasn't.

Safe to say the top five is now going to be Do I Wanna Know, Royals, Get Lucky, Riptide, and whatever that Chet Faker and Flume song is called.

Fucking hope Riptide doesn't win. Out of those five I'd prefer Royals to emerge #1.

Aaaaand here's a timely reminder why Flume and Chet Faker are both massively over-rated.

I'll never forget when I saw Washed Out and Toro y Moi last year and EVERYBODY talked through Chet Faker's opening set. About three months later I'm pretty sure every wanker there was all "hurrr I saw Chet Faker before he was famous" and FUCK YOU because you thought he was shit boring at the time.

Ah, the Arctic Monkeys. The taste of flat, warm champagne three days after a cancelled wedding.

I really don't mind the Arctic Monkeys but if they're the sort of band getting a ridiculous amount of hype and attention then today's popular rock music really is slim pickings.

The NME have pretty much rendered their own opinions useless after their ridiculous fawning over the band.

I'm stunned the Arctic Monkeys have become big again. I figured they were on the same slow descent into utter shite like every other band that became big off a mid-2000s debut. I'd perhaps like them more if they could spell "are" and "you" correctly.

"Get Lucky" is another song I don't mind but I don't see the greatness. Having a catchy hook doesn't inherently mean a song's good; I mean, I get Taio Cruz's "Hangover" stuck in my head all the fucking time just by somebody mentioning that they're hungover and that song's a huge sack of shit.

I reckon this is one of those big hit songs that will define a year but seem dated and awkward in a decade.

He's going to drink himself to death if he hasn't already.
