Arctic Monkeys. No question! But that was 4/5 years ago. Where's my next post-05 mega stars?
and no one in America knows or cares who they are. The one and only answer is Lil Wayne.
I know people who listen to nothing but Pheonix/Coldplay/Snow Patrol/Radiohead/KOL that like the Arctics
i should have rephrased my question better. i was going for something along the line of will there ever be another band that sort of arrive from an honest background and release a debut that gives them the sort of status that politicians are willing to destroy their dignity by lying about how they are woken up by an album track of that band.
I have no idea what your asking here
this is an awful topic
...followed by the question (so) where are the next post-05 stars? But yeah, this is kind of a sucky thread.
I don't think he knows what he's after :O
Maybe he should of said 'Where are the next surprise breakthroughs' :)
anyway, drop the thread. it's awful.
The Killers and Kings Of Leon are arguably much bigger at this moment, and they started from well behind the Arctics.
but I don't think any of Vampire Weekends singles will have the staying power/universal appeal of Float On which was pretty much everywhere on American tv at one point.
So they will be like The National who are huge in their scene and their scene only whilst being moderately successful across the board.
KoL have been around forever, it was just one track and a lot of air play that made them what they are now.
it doesn't matter how long they've been around they 'made it' post 2005
