You may notice some changes in sub pages today through Friday, as we implement parts ofthe new design into the page. The majority of the changes are occuring on my hard drive,but a few changes must take place online, so ignore these (I.E. color changes, broken links, etc.). I'm hoping to have the new design up by Saturday morning, but no promises.

Radio 1 Sent This To Us:

Best Album of 2000
4th Jan 2001
Here's the top five albums of year 2000 as voted by you on this site:

1: Green Day - 'Warning'
2: Radiohead - 'Kid A'
3: Oasis - 'Standing on the Shoulders...'*
4: Sigur Ros - 'Agaetis Byrjun'
5: SFA - 'Mwng'


Thanks for taking part in the vote.
Why do you try Steve Lamacq's Buzz Chart?

*We had to disqualify 31,000 of Oasis' votes after they appeared over a very
short period of time (naughty, naughty)

It just proves once again that Green Day are without a doubt the greatest
band EVER!!

Keep up the good work on your site, and I don't think that your current
design is all that bad.

Green Dazed and Confused? -rockdaily.com

Green Day are on the receiving end of a copyright claim by the Other Garden, a British band who insists that GD's "Warning" plagiarizes their song "Never Got the Chance." Garden bandmember Colin Merry says they were "alerted by confused fans who thought that Green Day's release at the end of last year was a reworking of our song."

more from the BBC:

Green Day’s Kinky Warning

Green Day are facing yet more copy cat claims over their latest single 'Warning'. Radio 1 reported yesterday that the little known British band The Other Garden reckoned that Green Day had copied part of their song 'Never Got A Chance'. Now both songs have been compared to 'Picture Book' - a 1969 album track by Britpop originals the Kinks. A musicologist is on the case.

from the BBC: Green Day's thorny garden

English band, The Other Garden, are suing American band, Green Day. Their latest single 'Warning' which entered the top 30 at the end of last year allegedly has a striking resemblance to Garden's 1997 release, 'Never Got The Chance'. According to their lawyer, Alastair Nicholas, the group could be due £100,000 in royalties.

Green Day's Billie Joe Remembers Humble Christmas with Launch.com: here.

Armstrong told LAUNCH that gifts were hard to come by. "Christmas . . .I kind of stopped getting presents after my father died and stuff, because that's like our main source of income. And my mom was a waitress, so, we just learned to accept -- the rest of my family -- we just learned to accept it," he recalled. "We didn't get extravagant gifts or anything like that, but we never really cared. It was always sort of . . .We just had fun. My family knows how to party, so it was no big deal, you know?"

CRITICS SOUND A 'WARNING'

- from MSO
"Their new album, WARNING, takes in a wider range of sounds and styles than any of their previous discs...Various songs contain echoes of the Beatles, Kinks, Stones, Who and other timeless rock icons. But every single number is imbued with the glinting melodic sensibilities and deadpan wit that have always been (Billie Joe) Armstrong's stock-in-trade. And at the end of the day, it's Armstrong's unmistakable songwriting style that defines Green Day..."--Alan DiPerna, Guitar World December 2000
