getting wound up about, but then Dave Matthews Band, seriously?!?
controversial : )
Then fucks it up with Coldplay straight afterwards.
I haven't seen anyone drop the ball that hard since that dumbass fallen footballer in the opening 10 minutes of every goddamn sports film.
'And I just have to include 5 bands that show the promise of establishing a lasting legacy in the future:
Band of Horses
Kings of Leon
Mumford & Sons'
with Mumford and Sons.
recorded the best album of the 00s
I really hope not. All of those bands suck.
This guy can't have listened to music. ever. it's not possible to expose yourself so witlessly so publicly with any prior knowledge of the subject.
Oh GOD, really?!!
YOU AND I MUST FIGHT TO SURVIIIIIIIIIIVE
NO ONE'S GONNAAA TAAAKKKKKEEE MEEEE ALLLLIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVEEEEEEE
this is why i need to get better at reading subtextually.
The Huffington Post Discovers MADCHESTER and interviews the singer of Joy Division, Peter Hook and the boss of hip new record label Factory Records, Steve Coogan.
but this has helped me get over the guilt I felt for stealing a girl he had his eye on. You snooze, you lose-- that's what I always say.
Both Jeffs are big-time snoozers.
(Don't even get me started on the friend that tried to tell about this great new band called Mumford and Sons... it's impossible to be diplomatic and honest at the same time.)
.."And I just have to include 5 bands that show the promise of establishing a lasting legacy in the future:"
their legacy is pretty well established
not saying he invented these things but think he was certainly important in popularising: the rise of the one man as a band thing, also the ramshackle indie folk thing that was popular in the last decade, also think he rasied the scope and ambition of lyrics within 'indie' (whether you think they are good or bad is personal taste but I think it would be hard to argue the ambition wasnt there), and pioneered singing really emo outside of emo. Good or bad im sure he will be influencing bands for a long time
(almost) makes Q magazine look relevant by comparison. Funny if it's an April fool though.

So basically it's like asking the marketing manager of Capital.
No wonder MTV died and had to reivent itself as a reality show station.
No Oasis either. What a plonker.
25th March 2011, I guess he means now...
Anyway, this is from his 10 bands that shook the world article:
"The only band since the 90's to have a far reaching and lasting influence. Emerging during the hair band craze, one of the worst creative eras in rock history, Nirvana's explosive, raw and uncompromising sound and lyrics brought a return to the late 60's...when playing, not how you looked, mattered. And the grunge scene was born.
After Bleach, their second record introduced the groundbreaking song and video "Smells Like Teen Spirit," along with classics like "Lithium," "Come as You Are" and "In Bloom."
Their completely unexpected success created hysteria that was unwelcome for the band and particularly Cobain, who was referred to as speaking for a generation, a role he was very uncomfortable with.
Restless creatively, the band released In Utero, an uncompromising new record that impressed critics and fans alike with its originality and raw energy.
An excellent MTV Unplugged record that had been recorded four months before Kurt died came out as their final album.
Nirvana's time was short but their explosive talent and originality, combined with a major influence on every rock band since the early 90's make them a band for the ages."
(ignoring the grammar) I'd like to draw attention to "...Cobain, who was referred to as speaking for a generation, a role he was very uncomfortable with..." - some form of plagiarism, shirley.
...Nirvana's 1991 Nevermind album, which has sold more than ten million copies, turned Kurt Cobain into a spokesman for his generation/It is a mantle with which he was never comfortable'
-Wesley Willis (1963-2003)
COLDPLAY AS YOUR OPENING GAMBIT?
