Inspired by our awesome partnership with The Stone Roses: The Third Coming exhibition, we’ve created a playlist of all our favourite songs from the era and one which you won’t want to miss! Get ready to be transported back to the days when The Hacienda ruled and Brit Pop was changed forever.

Starting with Hallelujah the song which coined the term ‘Madchester’, our track list includes everyone from The Stone Roses and New Order to the Inspiral Carpets and 808 State. With some serious disco basslines thrown together with funk, indie jingle jangle, psychedelia and alternative rock. This playlist is a collection of some of our favourite bands who revolutionised popular culture.
