The Washington Capitals - A BritPop Sampler

Inspired by Becca's August 31 QOTD, I decided to make a list of the Caps players and what Britpop song would best represent them--in some cases just the title, in others the song itself. Please note all songs don't necessarily come from the 90s Britpop movement. In some cases (such as The Who or Stones), they were inspirations on the movement. Other bands such as Joy Division or Talk Talk would be more post-punk and/or new wave but hell, they were still British (and you try finding a Britpop song for David Steckel--sure isn't easy). YouTube clips of each song have been included for added enjoyment.

Enjoy,
