What makes me angry.....

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).

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:
