Never Mind The Buzzcocks is a panel game that takes a satirical swipe at the world of popular music. Each edition features sarcastic humour and attacks on the current state of rock and pop music.

Originally on BBC Two, it was hosted by Mark Lamarr, then Simon Amstell, guest hosts, and Rhod Gilbert. Sky Max has now revived the format, with Greg Davies as host.

Phill Jupitus played team captain in all but one of the programme's BBC Two episodes, with Sean Hughes his original regular opponent. Hughes was replaced by Bill Bailey, and later Noel Fielding. Guest team captains filled in during Series 22.

The Sky Max line-up is Noel Fielding and Daisy May Cooper as team captains, with Jamali Maddix a regular panellist.
