For one band to come back into fashion is tremendous, for two means there must be something in the water.

Blur and The Stone Roses are to battle it out for the title of best band in the world at this year's Q Awards.

Lady Gaga can usually take on all comers at these kind of events, but she has some pretty stiff competition this year

The reunited groups line up against Coldplay, Lady Gaga and Muse for the accolade when the event takes place next month.

Blur and the Roses - who both reformed for eagerly anticipated summer shows - are both shortlisted for two titles, along with Noel Gallagher and Florence + The Machine's Florence Welch.
