Also, is this little corner of the Internet a bit unique in its hatred of Fix You or something?

But I've recently encountered some references to Fix You as a good song, apparently with no trace of irony or sarcasm. And that worries me. What the fuck, people.
On the Simpsons forum I go to, a number of the people in the Coldplay thread there named Fix You as one of the band's best songs. When someone was wondering why they didn't care for it, I responded:

It's probably because the lyrics are an abomination, clearly aimed at 16 year-old girls.
Spread the word. It's a shit song.

Oh my God. I could see a Simpsons forum being EXACTLY like Inteference...no one really likes the show all that much anymore, so they just talk about everything else, and wait with baited breath for something good to happen

Fix You ... Coldplay's best song?

No, my brain refuses to process this. It's just stalling.

After all, it's clearly aimed at 16 year old girls. Whiny pseudo-emo 16 year old girls. Who sit on their bed with a teddy bear and cry. Because their mother won't let them get a top they want. IT'S ALL SO UNFAIR.

You're correct, actually. The people in the A/V section (music, movies, etc.) are largely the most painfully hip folks imaginable and never discuss the show at all, looking on those who do with scorn.

That's a pretty damning indictment of Speed Of Sound!

Given how shit the last nine or so seasons of the Simpsons and the last two U2 albums have both been (and somehow that covers a similar timeframe), I can definitely see it being similar to Interference.

The people there are more asshole-ish though.

Or maybe folks here just seem kinder to me because I'm one of them. Hmm.

For all the people who thought Speed Of Sound sounds like U2, I really want to make a thread saying U2 is ripping off Kate Bush. I mean Speed of Sound is so heavily influenced by Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush.

Uhh...I haven't missed an episode. The average rating for me is about a 5/10 or 6/10 though.
