It's a clearing house for free mp3 which - occasionally - are ok. That Underlights song is pretty good. A thousand others would probably never cross my radar.

Sonic Youth for me. It's not that I don't like them. I just don't seem to place them on the same pedestal that many others do.

COLDPLAY.....totally lost their way after the first three albums (ala Oasis)....peaked in their shitness with Viva La Vida or whatever its called (the ONLY album i have ever physically gotten rid off in my life). Listening to Xylo Myloto, its mediocre at best. This band certainly dont have the ability to take you on aa musical journey. .....if their music was a colour....it would be beige.....just bland.
Rush are another band i just cant get to grips with. They are everything i DESPISE in music. Pure CHEESE!

^ I mostly agree with that. I don't understand the fuss about Viva La Vida. The album kind of bored me and I haven't listened to it in ages and don't feel the desire to listen to it again. The new album is so-so, but not as great as I hoped it would be. I liked their first 2 1/2 albums, but for me, it went downhill from there.

Well, that makes a lot of sense. Sort of like how I don't like Ireland because of Bloody Sunday. That's really all I know about the country, but I don't want to learn anything more about it.

The last Coldplay song to move me on any level was 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' (title track of same album).

lol... I actually like Coldplay a lot (I sort of categorize them as "guilty pleasure band") but the "physically gotten rid of" line cracks me up.

I think they have lots of very, very, good songs and a few legitimately great ones, but there's something I can't quite put my finger on that prevents me from saying out loud "I love Coldplay." Is it that Chris Martin just seems like a huge dork sometimes? Is it that they all seem too polite and well-brought-up to have a truly rebellious rock n roll spirit underneath the cheerful dispositions and manners? Part of it is the "U2 rip-off factor," where they incorporate so many U2-y elements (whoah-ohs, Brian Eno's production, etc.) that I roll my eyes a little... but then I sheepishly turn up the stereo too.

There are loads of bands that I don't like, so to answer this would mean me staying up all night and I do want to go bed soon. I want to watch the omnibus edition of Hollyoaks tomorrow then I fancy going to the library.

No I was just tired. Now I'm thirsty. I may make myself a cup of tea in a minute

Apparently the Raconteurs.

I was praying for them to get off stage.

I agree with every single part of this post.
