Music/Food in UK Sixth-Form Colleges 2007

This is really a personal experience question that I don't think I could answer well with Google.

When I was at college at the tail end of the 90s we had a student-run radio station (and a lot of guys strumming guitars) in the common room; they played a lot of Green Day/Smashing Pumpkins/Mansun and the like, and I saw a lot of Offspring and NOFX t-shirts. So my question is to the people who are at college (or even university) in the UK at the moment: what's the equivalent of that these days? Which bands/songs are getting played incessantly in student venues, and who's everybody going to see in concert and/or wearing on their T-shirts?

Also, a quick secondary question: when I was at college we subsisted on pizza slices and bacon sandwiches. Is that still a likely option, or have independent sixth-form colleges been hit by the same push towards healthy eating as the schools?
