Best argument yet for voting for The Beach Boys.

Don't you like bands from Scotland, Davey?! Jokes, jokes, I'm sure some Scottish VU hater is going to come along and bollock me any minute for my generalisation.

The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground {!} nor The Beach Boys were in the top 4.

The right place at the right time.

Let's rank some quality bands instead

I reckon more of a Beach Boys influence than a Velvets one there.

Nice to see common sense prevailed ultimately.
