It's not often that The Who is given any recognition for this sort of award (in the UK, at least).
(Although they did win "Outstanding Contribution" award at the BRITs in 1988.)


So it's nice that they've at least been nominated.

There's no chance that they'll win though: Stayin' Alive, Live and Let Die etc are all much more important / well known songs.




The Nominations are:

The BRITs Hits 30:
Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive/How Deep is Your Love
Bros. - I Owe you Nothing
Coldplay - Clocks
Eurythmics & Stevie Wonder - Angel
Girls Aloud - The Promise
Kanye West - Gold Digger
Kylie Minogue - Can't Get You Out of my Head
Michael Jackson - Earth Song
Paul McCartney - Live & Let Die
Pet Shop Boys - Go West
Robbie Williams & Tom Jones - The Full Monty Medley
Scissor Sisters - Take Your Mama
Spice Girls - Wannabe/Who Do You Think You Are
Take That - Beatles Medley
The Who - Who Are You
