they go and announce 2 christmas gigs :( i wish they would go away :(
they had gone :( gone for good :( i thought theyd tried to save the world, failed, married superstars and would just fuck off :( haha
They're gonna keep releasing records and touring for some time yet, so I wouldn't get your hopes up if I were you...
Frankly, if they made another Parachutes/Rush of Blood To The Head, then that'd be great.
hahaha the world is such a nicer place without them :(
as shit as the world is, it is shitter with coldplay
Not my words, Chris Martin's (presumably).
all over the radio/tv etc trying to act all nice and dancing in a shit way on a stage spinning round, then yea, he might have a leg to stand on, seen as i just go to work and live a normal life, i doubt hed actually say that to me
Being pissed off that a band is making music and people like it enough for it to be played publicly and frequently is just as silly as them being pissed off for you going to work.
I can't comment on their dancing in a shit way on a stage spinning round, but I can't see how that's particularly insulting to you. Likewise, trying to be nice...maybe they're just nice. If they're not, how would we know either way?
they remind me of bono and such
you seem to really dislike the band rather than just not like his musical work.
maybe cos i dont liek the music and the fact that they try to save the world in the shittest way imaginable and think they are better for it . id lump them in a bag with the likes of bono and sting and throw them somewhere dark where they cant be seen
they'd probably reason the world would be a less shit place without you in it.
nonsense, this kind of argument would only come from a coldplay fan. not anyone with a soul haha im jus jkin by the way im sure you have a soul but they do wind me up , i dont wish them any specific harm but i do wish theyd go away
I do like them, though I've not listened to their last couple of albums, singles seemed a bit weak... I should give them a listen though.
I just find it fascinating how we all, at times, get wound up and take personal offence to music we don't like, or music that we are clearly not the intended audience for. This is a good example of that.
Surely it's better for us just to ignore and try avoid the music we dislike, rather than winding ourselves up about it, but in reality we secretly prefer to get annoyed at it to have something to bitch about.
but yea i do take a slight pleasure in disliking them, and look at the response i got for it! i think ill keep it to myself next time haha
I'm trying to be more reasonable with age, but it is hard sometimes.
my lead whatever you do, or end up looking like a cunt of the highest order liek i have after this thread! hahaha
Which is why I really dislike it (and dislike catching myself doing it).
It makes you look bitter and cynical.
still enjoys it though but yea, i know what you mean
with a million roadies and equipment with sum shit scribbled on the back of your hand a good way to save the world, convince me
and i find that to be actually quite a good thing for a massively public person to do. swings and roundabouts.
however, i don't know why it should encroach on your liking of the band's music when their music is nothing of the sort - neither political nor offensive. just my opinion.
music bland thats all my hatred of the music has nothing to do with their stance on anything else
raises awareness about fair trade etc in a pretty non-offensive way, is this a bad thing? People look into it as a consequence.
P.S. Yeah, lock Bono away, like he's never done any good for the world... He actually uses his influential position to do a lot of good but hey, lock him away like a criminal. Fucking do-gooder, eh?
this this , but you dont mean it :( haha
i'd almost welcome them back... they we're slightly less boring with Eno producing too.
being shit? ill give u that, but theyre still both shit
I don't mind them. Clocks can bog off though.
I like their albums. I like all of the albums, bar a few on X&Y. The last one was pretty damn good.
So, we disagree, so you're not wrong. But i really like them.
The venues will remain hidden until 24 hours before Coldplay step on stage. This gives gig-goers a small taste of the uncertainty faced by the thousands of homeless people who do not know where they will spend the night
It's just like being homeless.
this is why i dont liek them, how in the hell is that liek being homeless????
What utter cunts.
id 'this' this hahahaha jkin as i said above i dont wish them specific harm, i just dotn liek them and thought they had gone away, this has all spiralled out of control! haha
I never thought the day would come whereby I'd be defending coldplay on dis
The saturation argument I can start to see but they aren't as bland as people like to make out.
it would've been in the news by now had Coldplay split. They're quite significant.
Here's a list of charities that Bono has supported:
Charity Projects Entertainment Fund
Chernobyl Children's Project International
Food Bank For New York City
Keep A Child Alive
Make Poverty History
Millennium Promise Alliance
Mulago Positive Women’s Network
Not On Our Watch
The Lunchbox Fund
UN Millennium Project
Wildlife Conservation Society
- There are only 29 of them.
Also, he was on Forbes’ Generous Celebrity List for his work with Debt AIDS Trade Africa (DATA) against the spread of AIDS and for debt relief in Africa, participation in fundraising concerts like Live 8, and his donation of $50,000 to One in Four Ireland, a charity that helps survivors of sexual abuse.
I guess you're right though, eh?
Maybe if you actually paid for a Coldplay album you would love it ;-)
id check my head for a brain slug from futurama
I have the feeling they could put out something great if they'd just push the envelope a bit more, don't love them or hate them, they can be bland but they can write some good tunes. To be honest with you they're one of the better Stadium/Arena bands we have right now
sounds like a pubescent choirboy with a particularly heavy cold.
God damn it.
How does it effect you, in any way, if Coldplay makes records, does shows, and does anything in general? Are they doing it in your living room? At your workplace? No. Of course not. If Coldplay were to disappear tomorrow, you wouldn't even notice, because they do not effect your life. There are some bands that are everywhere, and do deserve to be complained about (i.e. I can't walk down the magazine section at work without seeing 10 magazines with Justin Bieber on them, which is goddamn excessive), but Coldplay are not one of them.
You're just being a whiny cunt for no good reason, and, quite frankly, it's annoying. I know that you're just a troll, but you're not even a good one, and that bores me.
Whether or not anyone likes Coldplay or not, your opinion on the existence of the band is childish and just plain idiotic.
Whatever happened to the GOOD trolls?
thats the fuinniest thing ive heard in a while
do you have to have the message boards read to you or something??
pedantic here, dont be a dick haha (jokin!) but seriously you may think im a dick (and rightly so!) i dont care but im not picking grammatical/spelling errors out of peoples posts, which i think is just as shit
Just because this is the internet doesn't mean you don't need to use proper grammar. Trolling lacks a certain finesse when you just half ass everything... as you seem to be doing, with your lack of apostrophes and capitalization.
Really, I think you're just a whiny twat who's trying to get in on the trolling game. We've already got a really entertaining troll. We call him buynikeshoes_09. He's a badass. He actually believes in trolling. You're just a shithead.
or not i wasnt trying to troll , but still, get over it, i have
But the intelligent responses in this thread have gladdened my heart.
the kids think theyre alright??? :-O hahahahaha
all they want is to be u2.
and didn't play stadiums and have their music on x-factor auditions....and were maybe from norway or summat....you lot would all be licking their balls.
not that i really like coldplay....but y'know.
It's painfull to hear
No, you're right, if Coldplay weren't Coldplay, people probably wouldn't treat them the way they treat Coldplay.
still shite though
If you're complaining about anything it should be the Republica reunion. Now THAT'S offensive.
Please say you're joking? Please?
not sure why everyone spends so much time on them. i remember when grandaddy opened for 'em in 2001 and i felt sorry for them, for having to follow up such a colorful and exciting performance with their sadsack anthems and sleepy stage set. we left after 3 songs.
great live, frequently
but the words.. man they generally are wretched. i REALLY wish they weren't as they'd be a great band with some decent wordsmithery. it's all Oasis' fault. they made it okay to say absolute doggerel bollocks over a decent tune. i think what really galls is that Martin *thinks* he's saying something profound. you can tell. but on closer inspection the words of, say '42' really are some absolute nonsensical horse-shine.
