Censorship's a slippery slope but would you make an exception for these folks?
maybe I joined too late but they are one of my favourite bands.
They got a bit too popular.
Isn't it just bland music for bland people to listen to whilst doing the washing up?
Impressive live as well.
and I'm not saying people hate them because of that, it's just people that wouldn't listen to them & that style of music end up listening to them to see what all the fuss is about.
You can lead a horse to water...
It's not like they'd all be frollicking round in a meadow somewhere, they only exist because we get them to do something.
I don't think its a brainy decision.
On our way home, we just throw from our window our record collection?
and a lot of their stuff sounds the same. Also I've found they're quite easily mimicked. Just get on the piano, play about 3 plain chords in a minor key, and mumble a bit.
As far as bands that both my mum & I could enjoy they rank pretty highly & no I'm not saying that as a bad thing. Not to mention the lyrics have actual depth to them unlike a lot of the bands that people that have casually listened to one or 2 songs compare them to.
then you really have never listened to them.
I just don't listen to them. Simple as that.
it's what their band would have wanted
