Doesn't even have a rapper in the middle of it. There's some seriously sick rhyming in it though.
Actually thought the band name was 'Romantic Idiots' and thought that, well, at least they're self-aware.
still better than Brother tho
My favourite is the 'Hull' and 'Dull' rhyme.
yes, they're shit, but you're just fuelling the hype if you compare every other shit band in the world to them. Just ignore them, who gives a fuck?
The Justin Bieber of 2010, the Nick Griffin of 2009, the Crazy Frog of 2005.
Whilst people keep insisting on how horrible those things are, they somehow can't help mentioning them in every other conversation. It's slightly Orwellian.
Presumably Lincoln, unless they just filmed it there for a laugh.
Boston perhaps? I know the scene in lincoln isn't exactly booming, but im pretty sure they wouldn't get away with that gash there
this is stupendously boring, one of the dullest songs I have heard in some time.
It's SRS BSNSS. Haven't Radiohead taught you anything?
and was so, so pleased with it that in his head he thought he'd written something as classic as boys don't cry or i want hold your hand. that's the only explanation i can think of that explains why they repeated the chorus 700 TIMES.
that while he generally listens to 'indie' stuff and is irritated by most pop, that he'd always prefer to listen to awful pop music than awful indie, because at least awful pop is normally reliant on a production trick independant of any talent of the people involved or such. This compared to 'Friday' shows this in the clearest possible way, Friday is comparatively much more fun to listen to, regardless of having no greater real creativity.
Having said that fairly sure Katy Perry is missing this element of pop that makes it better than Romantic Idols
Oi Indie knobbers of DiS why do you like that song, the hook would be good if Katy Perry actually sung it well as opposed to just yelling her disgustingly irritating voice towards your poor innocent ear drum
not only is the song utterly turd but her vocals are fucking awful, she just honks her way through the entire thing.
Because I assume this was written, performed, recorded and produced by a bunch of amatuer teenagers who are still aspiring to become better. And while it's pedestrian, and stupid, and copies off the worst influences, at least they're tying. How did your band sound when you were 15, or however old these lot are?
Also, when they or their girlfriends find this thread, it's going to be amazing.
She clearly wants to be a pop star as big as Lady Gaga or Katy Perry or someone like that, and she's certainly trying for that (although, to be fair, Gaga did spend a long time honing her performance and music, working from nothing and with no one, playing New York drag clubs to a couple of fat queens, all while she was studying at NYU. But, y'know...).
Therefore it's much fairer to lambast their efforts than it is this bunch of nobodies from Lincolnshire.
What a cock...
I didn't think being a 'hipster' was a kind of youth cult thing like being an emo or a goth?!
...a contemporary punk rock acapella band"
nah, it's definitely a joke. Kinda sad it is, in a way.
the best bit is when he switches up the chorus at the end to rhyme town with town. no-one saw that coming.
that's actually got a THIRD syllable in it.
stop making fun of kids.
is this, or is this not, his city?
White Stratocaster played high up...
Chunky bass player...
Urban lyrics for the kids...
I bet they sit and touch each other's rude bits while listening to "Whatever People Say About Me..." and drinking cider.
but she has a really weird technique
Does he ever say where he is from?
right up until they run out of ideas at the end of their disappointing third album.
What's more worrying is that if you asked him, he'd probably reference The Enemy as an influence, rather than The Jam (who he's never heard of).
FILMED IN LINCOLNSHIRE
But fair play for at least going out and doing something.
I totally identify with this guy.
However, now I can't get that chorus out of my head. Who has had the last laugh. Not me I fear.
ps: Is there an category for 'Best Acting In A Promotional Music Video' at the Oscars?
but the song is playing 'this is not my city'
can't decide whether it's worse or better though. and before anyone asks, it is 100% not tongue in cheek
I think this might be tongue-in-cheek
they're really serious about "making it". not a joke band whatsoever
but I'm still really, really hoping that its so deep in layers of irony that maybe I'm just too dim to get it
Its a new low in audible sound. But i love it!
Pretty much redefining the boundaries of 'music' right there.
it wasn't a figment of my imagination.
Ah, I remember stumbling upon them a while back.
Fucking hell, smashing a bottle over some ten year old's head, well done gents.
and can confirm that trailer pretty much encapsulates the whole experience.
Could have done with an incongruous guitar solo though.
The most amazing lyric ever:
"When I'm down south they say "do a bit of slang"- I drop the beat for a second and I say: Why Aye man."
And genuinely not tongue in cheek.
The line "I'd like to bid you all a Jew" at the end CLEARLY signifies that the lyrics address the unlawful Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip from a Palestinian perspective. Go listen to Barbra Streisand or something, you? Zionist mainstreamers
its just as shite either way
I'd recognise that grey foam padding anywhere.
of all the demographics of people you could beat up in order to steal their possessions for sound insulation- I think games workshop geeks would be pretty high up the list, just below Mumford and Sons.
I witnessed an enraged games workshop employee sprinting down the street after some townie guys screamed "geeks!" through the open shop door. The townies were running, terrified. (He was pretty much a giant to be fair)
The whole scene truly warmed my heart
