‘Cool Britannia’

Britpop emerged in the early 1990s as part of the ‘Cool Britannia’ movement, which celebrated British culture and harkened back to the UK’s ‘Swinging Sixties’ era.

Time magazine recently described the movement as a ‘celebration of Britain’s mid-90s youth culture.’

‘Cool Britannia’ is a pun on ‘Rule, Britannia!’, a patriotic song from England’s colonial era.
