Like I said, I don't want to go into detail or get in an argument about Oasis.

I really shouldn't have even posted that. But I'll just say that, yeah, Noel and Liam are cool and anyone who thinks differently is WRONG. I could provide a goddam surplus of written and visual evidence that would prove how badass they are but I'm not really in the mood. Maybe later.

Cool? I suppose depending on your criteria, but that doesn't give them the almighty right to run their mouths the way they do about all kinds of other artists like they are the best musicians that ever lived. A little humility goes a long way, (as does learning from others rather than bashing anyone who gets praise).

This is a perfectly good little Coldplay thread here so I won't engage in heated debate Oasis in this particular spot.

But Noel, Liam, and I are waiting in the alley with lead pipes and bottles of lager and we're ready to street-fight any of you motherfuckers who want to talk shit about us.

Your sense of humor about it doesn't change the fact that "badass" and "douchebag" are not mutually exclusive.

And I could only imagine what they'd have to say about Coldplay and Chrissy Martin.

I'm sure I read a quote back in the Parachutes days when they called Coldplay music for bedwetters.

I was just reading some reviews of the new Coldplay album in our media. It's so annoying that most reviewers use this album, whether they like it or not, to bash U2. There are some who say Coldplay suck, because U2 suck and Coldplay just sounds like U2. And some are saying Coldplay's fine because they sound like U2, but better. I hate reviews.

Are you sure that's not from the second album, A Rush of Pee to the Bed?

It only happened because they slept in Parachute Pants.

I really like "Death and All of His Friends." The ending has this cool post-rock vibe and soaring guitar, I just wish there weren't vocals right there. "The Escapist" is a nice little call-back to the first track, too.

Manic Street Preacher's Bassist is guilty of that too

Could I join ya?

One thing I love about Oasis is that what ya say and what ya hear is what ya get. No dodging around what they think, they say what they want and they say it real.

They're also proper working-class, like Bono, and not Privately Educated poor little rich boys like Thom Yorke and Chris Martin.

I have to say that those violin 'shrieks' in Yes remind me a bit of Suds & Soda by dEUS. Great song(s) though!

Please. Tell me. If you think that tons of horseshit they've said or done in the public is consider to be badass, alrighty then.

You must be a big fan of Adolph Hitler, too.

Really? I haven't read a single review of Viva La Vida that doesn't mention U2, but not disparagingly.
