A genre of nineties British music. Not actually as poppy as the name suggests, it's a form of alternative/indie rock, often heavily influenced by The Smiths and/or David Bowie. Often male singers, but certainly not always. Look at Elastica. (despite the fact that I hate Justine Frischmann, I have to admit they are a good band.) Usually the singer will have a pronounced British (duh) accent.
Britpop bands include Oasis, Suede, (one of the best bands ever despite the fact that they never made it big in the US. Much better songs than Blur. A much better singer than Blur. Generally better than Blur in my opinion. And Blur are good.) Elastica, Blur etc.
My mother: What is that awful noise?? Are you playing various Britpop bands of the nineties again and dancing and screaming in your room with two other friends who are also obsessed with Brett Anderson?
