I know you're just joking around, which is why I am doing the same in return. If I honestly thought you were trying to tear them down, I would have burned your house down by now.

I'll see you at their gig in St Kilda this weekend

 
I wouldn't. We all like different things. I hated Build a Rocket Boys and recall not being overly impressed by the other tracks I heard through DI. I don't even enjoy their version of RTSS. But no, I'm never being serious when I call them shit, just stirring the pot. "My loss", as pH put it.

The historian needs to search for this original discussion. I've been calling him "Gravy hater" ever since, but I don't really remember when it started. Something to do with Elfa commenting on not eating gravy because he's one of those vegetable lovin' types.

Well that's just downright un-American.

This made my day.

It's these moments when I want to punch Cobbler in the face.

Nah, I reckon Elbow and Coldplay are superior than Arcade Fire.

Coldplay comes closest but I think they've already reached their peak in terms of popularity.

And what others have said, the time of stadium-sized bands is over. Rock just isn't that popular anymore.

I don't think anyone is going to be able to be as huge as U2 is/was. I don't see any of those bands being able to consistently sell out stadiums around the world. I also don't think it's necessarily a bad thing though.

if i could go back in history and change people's opinions (mostly in the marketing world), i would say that Doves are the next big band. that's in my alternate universe though.
