So Milton Keynes missed out on city status yet again – helping to prove that buying in a football club, building an IKEA the size of Saturn, and filling the town centre with every chain store and bar this side of the Sun does not make a city.
But hey, we’re still a town, and that’s ok. To make us feel better about it, here’s Beatcheck’s run down of the top five town tracks of all time.
1. The Specials, Ghost Town
2. The Killers, Sam’s Town
3. Lipps Inc., Funky Town
4. The Drums, Skippin’ Town
5. Less Than Jake, History of a Boring Town
