are we talking about the same band? because I'm not even sure....
is keane the band that has the song out that's heavy on the piano with the singer that sounds alot like thom yorke?
I think the name of the song is "somewhere only we know" or something like that...

then yes, I liked them alot more when they were Radiohead.

I can't tolerate The Killers and Snow Patrol and Keane and I know they are popular but I don't see why.

And now there is a whole emergence of bands like that such as Franz Ferdinand, The Kaiser Chiefs and The Futureheads. At first, those bands were a little different and now they are all the same. They can't really sing, their songs that are in the charts all sound the same, they all have lead singers who squeal and they all wear suits and trousers that don't fit and think they look and sound "cool".

I'm really waiting for some great band to blow al this type of music out of the water. There are great bands around at the moment, and some great artists releasing new albums this year, that I think people should pay more attention to.

Your claims are intriguing.

What Radiohead song do you think "Somewhere Only We Know" sounds like?

And for what it's worth, I don't think anyone in the music business sounds like Thom Yorke. Not even a little bit.

I would say if you stack up the vocal on "Karma Police" against "somewhere Only We Know" the similarites are there. The fact that they're an alternative band with acoustic piano playing those kinds of chords, major 7ths and the like, instantly radiohead comes to mind.
it's just my opinion by the way.
why people are getting upset over the comparison is kinda weird.

Sorry to disappoint, but I'm not upset. Just wanted to discuss music and know why you thought they were similar. Thanks for responding.
