I thought Fuck Buttons had won the vote?
They look like a right bunch of muppets. The bloke on the far right is young frankenstein!
The Courteeners ended with something like 56% of the vote, and the journo even acknowledges it was barely a fair or popular fight. They could have thrown them off for fan rigging but then they'd have had to do the same for second (Fuck Buttons, thanks to us) and third (the Wave Pictures, who picked up something like 20% of all votes overnight) so it looks like they've gone "fuck it, let's go with the fanbase's will and never speak of this again".
as the 'credible' alternative. But this is what happens when you allow folks to vote democratically. I should imagine that the Guardian are fairly pissed off too.
