The Smiths have been voted into 22nd place in a new poll by Virgin Radio listeners entitled The Top 100 Great British Artists. Surprisingly, Queen headed the list followed by The Beatles and Oasis. Perhaps even more shocking was Spandau Ballet making the list at #88. A complete list of results can be seen here: Virgin Radio Top 100 British Artists.

Johan de Witt also writes:

On New Year's Eve Virgin radio counted down the top 100 best British artists ever, as voted bij its listeners. The Smiths only became 22nd. Before other 80s acts such as The Cure, Depeche Mode or Joy Division, but behind New Order, The Stranglers and even Paul Weller.

      .. the Stranglers rated so high. They're very underrated, in my opinion. Good band.
