I might be imagining things, but it seems the UK radio has improved a lot recently. Maybe its just a one-off while the current batch of songs are out (mind you there is some tosh, Holly Valance comes to mind), or maybe its the influence of all these little mosher kids making nu-metal stuff popular. I've asked my brother to get 4-5 songs that I heard on the radio for me, including something by idlewild, puddle of mudd, a muse track (but he's failed to find it, I think its unreleased or something) and the hives.
