A mere seven days since we last did this, here we are again, to the surprise of probably no-one. Unless you don't understand how the concept of a week works, in which case… damn. Anyways, welcome, to another installment in our series of retro-soaked pisstakery and finger-pointery, This Week In Kerrang! History.
This time, we're squinting eyes in the direction of and shining a figurative torch in the dusty old attic that is June 2004, when we reckoned it was time to decide who were the 100 most important people in rock. That or we didn't have any better ideas about what to put on the cover that week. Either way, such a timestamp of endorsement in the world of alternative music was absolutely never going to make us look like pillocks years later. No way. After all, rock stars are renowned for their excellent behaviour and reputations…
June 2004, then. Doesn't sound that long ago, does it? Except it really does when you consider that was the first summer that Donald Trump was saying, 'You're fired!' on U.S. TV and pointing his finger at something other than Twitter and saying brain-wrong things and over-using exclamations like he's permanently surprised by his own ability to make it to the end of a sentence!
Enough of that, let's get to it.
