Thinking about it I'm not so sure the 90's and 00's "Britpop" (EngRock) thing is totally about rockism. There is a tradition of 'the English are almost English' that has parallels with the Young Fogies, 80's yuppie businessmen resurecting old cockney rhymning slang, the films of Mike Leigh etc. Blur apparently got a lot of stylishitc cues from the film Meantime. Of course this relates to authenticity, but it is perhaps not as isolated as "rockism" suggests.
