Show Summary

Unsympathetic to the precious pomposity of the rock and pop industry, 'Buzzcocks' takes a sledgehammer to the delicate egos of the biggest and most famous names in music - often whilst they are guests on the programme. The scathing wit of Mark Lamarr and later Simon Amstell, has literally caused guests to walk off the show.  From 2009 to 2013, the show was presented by different guest hosts each week. In July 2014 it was revealed that Rhod Gilbert would become the show's third regular host from the 28th series. This would turn out to be the final series as the BBC announced in May 2015 that the show had been axed.

In 2013, the BBC aired a series called What a Load of Buzzcocks which is narrated by Blur's Alex James and looks at the best bits of a certain year of music including moments from 'Buzzcocks'.
