The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. When I joined up Help by the Beatles and We Got to get out of this Place by the Animals. september 1965
    which now seems a bit Ironic.
    what was popular when you guys joined.
  2. I think this has already been done?
    but I'll start with Wild thing by the troggs and 'trains and boats and planes'
    six months earlier than you by the looks of it.
  3. B*witched had two number one singles while I was in basic. The other bands at number one over those twelve weeks included the Spice Girls, Spacedust and Billie Piper.

    That says everything that needs to be said about music in the 1990s...
