    I've just read a few bits of news on different bands on drownedinsound.com, and underneath each bit of news people get to have their say on whatever they like.

    What really annoys me is people constantly slagging-off The Darkness, Muse, The White Stripes......I mean come on, these aren't boy-bands!! These are artists that are improving the state of the British music industry (which, a couple of years back, wouldn't house a rock track in the so-called 'Top 40). The Darkness in particular are constantly being ridiculed. People are taking these guys way too seriously!

    So, in conclusion, everyone has their different tastes and opinions, but lay off bands who are offering us some relief from all the churned-out, teeny-bopper crap that we've had to put up with for so long :lesson:

    They are, but they are charting over here and gaining alot of hype and recognition, so that has something to do with the British record industry....

    Well, that's the flood gates opened. Fortunately, though, you didn't mention The Coral so it's not as bad as.....oh, b*****r.

    You've torn it now... :mad:

    My feelings on the White Stripes and The Coral as musicians are common knowledge, but they're endlessly better than pop ****e and spurn much more interesting debates - You can only say Westlife/Blue/insertgenericpopacthere are crap so many ways, but I can slag off the WS anew each day. The thing with rock is it's not meant to be liked by all, that's pops job (though it fails in so many ways).

    ..............lest we not forget REM :D

    typical of Adox, the mere mention of The D word has him springing for his Keyboard, the rest of the time hes hiding out in some other part of the forum. :nono: ;) or smoking illicit substances :smoke:

    Bus Lanes :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Bands the dont turn up for Gigs and never announce it till the last moment..........Donnas (they must pay).

    When I cant get on the Internet and Im not sure if its down to my PC, ISP, Router or an act of god (small g, cos Im not a believer).

    Cd cases that fall to bits, particular reference to the centre bit that disintergrates letting the Cd fall on the floor :mad: :mad: thats cos god knows I dont believe in him :rolleyes:

    When the curtain hooks keep breaking, so when I try to put on a film, theres a gap of light on the PJ screen.

    Bob Geldof and Sting (they think they are god).

    People who undertake on Motorways, just as your moving back into the other lane :mad:

    people driving an inch off your boot in sleet, rain, snow etc.

    Ignorant people, people who dont say Please or Thank you..........its endless

    Why bother gettin angry about what other people say about bands? Main thing is that you listen to what YOU like. Me, I've never been a fan of the charts, they can keep their top 40:devil:
    Not gonna say that I'm a big fan of Darkness, Stripes etc. they're ok to be fair but there's much better around IMO, just look anywhere but the top40 and there they are:smashin:

    Just because a band *isn't* a teeny bop group doesn't necessitate them being any good. I like Muse but the White Stripes are all style over substance - their albums are poor with few standout tracks. If they put as much effort into writing as they seem to do in appearing "enigmatic" in interviews they may get somewhere.

    As for the Darkness - are they a bad joke done well or a good joke done poorly? You'll only go so far ripping off Freddie Mercury but at some point a little originaloty is called for.

    I buy records by dozens of bands that never chart (Sparklehorse, The Jayhawks, Wilco)and a few that seem to have charted all of a sudden (Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand). I don't expect everyone to like them just because they're not teeny boppers - personal taste is still valid. Who cares if someone slags off Muse - it's just a band at the end of the day.

    Who cares? The guys wetter than a haddocks bathing costume.

    Why all the Darkness hatred? Surely anyone that keen on sending themselves up is worthy of laughing along with, not getting mad at. I mean death threats? C'mon, this is getting silly.:nono:

    No , it's good that a band should provoke such a fearful reaction from the softcock bank managers of our society. You see, when I went to school I was a metal head and I was universally denigrated by the stiffs that made up 97% of my year. Now, all those freaks and geeks that didn't quite fit are really doing something and guess what? All those cheesemongers are working in the filling station or the estate agents.

    You see, to really feeeeeel the need for the power of rock, to need that buzz, that kick in the head. To want to turn it up till it hurts and then turn it up again, that means you have spirit. That means you are alive. The fact that loads of kids are into this stuff is great if you ask me.

    So, enjoy the fact that people hate your music. It's because they are afraid. They don't know why you want to stage-dive or go crazy at a gig. That makes them fear they are missing something. And they are. They just don't know what. Which is the point.
