They just sit there in their little corner of the train in their HTTT t-shirt which doesn't fit nice and slimly, daydreaming of misery, and not in a cool way like a Joy Division way, but in a rather sad way.....

I am generalising here....
As i said this is based on the fans i have met
They are all lefties as well, moaning about global warming and they nagg me about how i could not care less. Moaning about how the world is a terrible place etc.

I even met one who said he stays up at night worrying about actions his government has taken in Iraq! - I actually told him to F Off as i couldnt take any more of than kind of talk

I get on with loads of them, most i met at uni, but we obviously dont see eye to eye on some things

I think its the smug factor as well, "oh look at us, we like radiohead, we must have an IQ of 189"

But I was generalising and stereotyping. Probably only 3% of Radiohead fans come anywhere close to adhering to this stereotype.....that's what generalising is all about. What does one expect a fan to be like, when you might know from loads of experience that such fans are often far removed from the generalisation, yet still it holds realtively strong in the mind.....and the generalisation differs amongst different people.

As a big fan of both Oasis and Radiohead I can't help but laugh at the sweeping generalisations people have about both band's fanbase.

This is actually true 99% of the time, though.

You'd call the Clash watered down, derivative pap?

No mate, but I wouldn't call Oasis that either. At the end of the day, they have defined a generation in the UK and are probably still the biggest band in Britain, and that can't be criticised so easily.
