Yes. Especially REM.
Can anyone think of any more?
ETC ETC ETC
well maybe if they only own one album and say that, but if a real music fan said so then they'd be totally justified.
but have you ever met an REM obsessive? Total fucking freaks. They write the lyrics to 'Everybody Hurts' on tiny bits of paper and keep them in their wallets so they can read them on the bus and cry.
you do that, don't you?
My Chemical Romance.
only when the pain becomes too much to bear.
Miami Sound Machine
No no no no no no no no.
Postal Service/Death Cab For Cutie
but most have been sensible well adjusted types who love the early stuff, like the middle period stuff, and on/off like the more recent stuff. thankfully the hate for around the sun is universal.
although, i do actually trust someone who loves bright eyes.
and then say "the bloke off the marmite advert". a woman actually did this to me once when i was working for cd warehouse about two days after he died.
Although why anyone would call them their favourite band beats me, and if I hear that "If You're Lonely..." bollocks or whatever it's called one more time today on shitty Trent FM I'll jump through the nearest window.
know who he was?
but anyone who says 'Urban Hymns' is their favourite album is clearly a massive fucktard. And probably wears mainly beige.
HiM again. I was talking last night to someone who's just quit working for Kerrang! He said the editorial meetings were hilarious, and mainly centred around whether or not they could get such-and-such to take his top off for the poster.

on 'first three albums'. Yes.
are truely amazing.
these bands are pure gash!
no-one ever says Miss Black America.
absolute shite. I'm ashamed that they're Scottish.
I totally didn't see this before I posted mine in the other thread!
The only thing Scotland has to offer any more is The View and Camera Obscura.
They seem to attract completely ignorant, fashionistas who look down their noses at other's music tastes despite their own's clearly shit inclusions.
but I don't see the appeal at all.
I'm trustworthy aren't I?
Maybe not my "favourite", but objectively, my pick for the best band ever.
Don't trust me.
In other news, that single you sent me to review is very pleasant, I will be reviewing it this weekend. And we are apparently doing a gig together on April 6th at the Windmill, where I will heckle you for REM songs throughout!
Seeing as how all her fans want to bukkake her.
one of your favourite bands then?
I could go on...
but quite a lot of people who count them as their favourite band are into a whole lot of MOR shite. So I sort of agree.
Oh yeah, that makes sense.
...people used to ask for CDs from "that coloured girl".
At least REM showed it was possible to create geniinely interesting alternative music in the 80's US?They inspired the likes of Nirvana and Radiohead.
saying REM are one of your favourite bands and being obsessed with them are often two different things.
Does that even work as a joke? I don't even know anymore.
Although they only TRULY hit form after Load.
someone whos favourite band is Metallica to have long hair, bad BO, poor social skills and be a fan of motor racing. I didn't say I didn't like Metallica, just that I would trust one of their hardcore fans. Freaks!
I AM a hardcore Soundgarden fan though. Trust me?
got a point though.
I wanna know about it.
I am ultra-trustworthy. I kill you.
We shouldn't mock the deaf and mentality unwell.

:( The The? I won't have it said. Matt Johnson is one of my heros....
that Marco hasn't posted...
Who cites Coldplay as their favourite artist is not a music fan.
the hell is wrong with REM?
as I have 'too much experience'
Oh how I want this job
