  3. 3. Britpop was defined by focusing on bands rather than solo artists. Writing their own material and playing instruments themselves. Singing in regional British accents. References to British places and culture in their lyrics. Fashion consciousness. Stylistically, Britpop bands relied on catchy hooks and wrote lyrics that were meant to be relevant to British young people of their own generation.
