I wouldn't even mind it if that was real. It would be the first time I'd enjoy a Coldplay song, because it misses the main annoyment factor: Chris Martin.

Adam: "Well, one of two things. Either they praise our cover and say that it's much better than the original, hence having to admit that they've actually listening to the original, OR they say it's a crap song by a crap band and a crap cover and we're crap. They then fall into a bitter, bitter fight, and don't even notice when we release an album in fall."
Edge: "Let's do it."
