The nineties saw the surge in BritPop acts dominating the airwaves. This led to a number of high-profile rivalries between bands, desperate to make their mark on the British music scene.

We discovered that people throw out seven times more Oasis CD’s than that of their rivals Blur.

The Oasis albums that Brits are most keen to say farewell to in their spring-clean are “(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?” coming in at first place. With “Stop the Clocks” and “Heathen Chemistry” not far behind.

But it’s not just Blur’s back catalogue that’s in demand, the band recently reformed and are releasing their first album in 12 years – The Magic Whip.

Paul Treanor, eCommerce Director at Ziffit said: “I was personally taken aback at the number of Oasis CDs being sold on compared to Blur. There’s no accounting for taste and I will be holding onto my Oasis CDs, but Blur clearly seems to have won this battle of the bands by a long shot.”
