Oh lawd, you mean you're a... a... European?
I'm actually Maori, but i live in Croatia because my wife dragged me here.
Also, don't call me a subject of the British, you guys bent over backwards to sign a treaty with us, and we felt sorry for you.
Croatia has gone from exporting wives to importing husbands?
I wouldn't be so arrogant as to lecture you on how the Treaty of Waitangi made all Maori people British subjects, so I'll just leave this here.
Eh, she didn't think having a half Serbian baby was going to be the best way to celebrate her 14th birthday so she moved, we met, etc., etc., and the treaty didn't make us British subjects, it gave us the same rights as British subjects, while still allowing us to claim our territories as our own (we screwed it up later, but still, you were scared of us before we grew complacent.)
Say what, now?!
Oasis is one of the few good things to have come from there!
Don't worry, we totally got you back, hence the all blacks.
Oasis were the most overhyped band in history and Liam's vocals were in dire need for Hall's Soothers.
Flattery won't get you a visa to enter Manchester any quicker.
But money will. PM me for details.
Since New Zealand is a British colony, the All Blacks winning is really just us beating ourselves.
Because nobody else can.
They weren't that bad, there's been worse.
The thing is they got people into listening to guitar orientated music again after years of incredibly bad commercial techno and dance music. And I am quite happy about that. Nothing wrong with techno and dance music, but the country was full of the crap end of it.

Yet more sons of the city with songs in their hearts.
There was some great bands in that scene but I never really into it. My mate was heavily into it though as well as punk. We'd refuse to go out with him if he wore his incredibly baggy jeans that had the hems cut off...the clown!

Another great Manchester band.

You forgot the greatest band to ever come from Birmingham.

The only good thing to come from Birmingham was
Yeah. I got nothin'.
Keep up that treasonous insolence and your friendly neighbourhood Empire Correction Officer will oblige the kamate part.
You have the music tastes of a girl who was 13 in 1999.
