There aren't any.
Or do you mean any band that plays more then 3/4 diatonic chords in 4/4, which is what people usually mean?
Most other bands that get called pretentious really aren't.
Except if you're talking about Pete Doherty people like that, that's fair enough, he's massively pretentious and shouldn't be able to get away with it.
such self-importance with such nothingy music
for while it may seem to us that their sentiments and claims of emotional resonance are pathetic, I'm sure they're honestly felt by the performers. Maybe a record company creation like Glasvegas are genuinely deceitful in this regard, but for all their shoddy, derivative songwriting, perhaps Bugg and Mumford aren't so much pretentious as just a bit crap. So much of what makes an artist pretentious lies not in their art so much as what they say about their art - I'd need to see an interview or two.
I wasn't aware of something like this...
It's just with Mumford & Sons there's all the fucking olde fashioned lyrics and dressing like 19th century farmers and OH, DO FUCK OFF YOU BUNCH OF UTTER UTTER CUNTS

I didn't want to be held responsible for Dis' version of the night of long knives - mass ban culling.
Old itchy trigger Theo is not a man with which you should fuck.

but seriously, she's such a repugnant character.
maybe she isn't the monster I once envisioned.
This 'corporate face of rebellion' she projects is laughable, though - the hypocritical Stupid Girl video, the tough-talking verses interspersed with needy wailing choruses, having a song railing against her ex-husband which her ex-husband actually appears in.
Can't remember the last time I heard anything by her that wasn't teeth-gnashingly awful both musically and lyrically.
Seems incredibly popular with lesbians too for some reason.
that's not what feminism is
hence why it doesn't really make sense
They suck so badly.
Bands that are "pretentious" and manage to maintain a large fanbase/critical acclaim without being called out on it or what?
Love the idea of Godspeed You! Black Emperor arriving onstage and the audience just going "nah lads, not 'avin' this" within the first five minutes.
''we've been rumbled lads! time to scarper!!''
and GY!BE pranced away anxiously
Until this year happened
