Who the hell is touting THEM as saviours of rock? Yikes. I am not sure if they can ever be considered THAT.

For me, (as for anyone who likes a specific band or music style), I just happen to connect with their music. A lot of their songs have an emotional tug for me. And it is the same with ANY band I like, whether it be U2, Frank Sinatra, Travis, Radiohead, Ride, Stone Roses or Janes Addiction (etc. etc. etc.). I try not to get into bands becuase of "hype."

everyone needs to listen to some Iron Maiden today.

edit: I'm not a fan of the Mighty Maiden at all, but they're fun to listen to. and why not everyone listen to some Maiden and we can all work out our differences over that?

A support group? As in, you're all here to help each other conquer your Coldplay-disliking problem?

I like Coldplay. I own "A Rush of Blood to the Head" and listen to it now and again, so I guess I can't join your support group, Kitten. However, I do get annoyed when I hear people in the media throwing around terms like "The next U2" because I just don't see it. Just because the guitar riff in "In My Place" sounds like something the Edge might come up with does NOT mean they are the next U2. I think Coldplay has come up with some beautiful melodies, but they don't have the charisma and power that early U2 had by a long shot.

Sula,
I totally agree and I've tried to give them mega benefits of doubt because so many U2 fans think they're great.
Whereas U2 and other bands mix up the tempo on an albumn they are all slooowwly the same.

edited to add:
I do like a few songs, but the next U2 No Way.

i'm here to join the ranks of those who like the band but hate the hype. i think both albums are realy good, i've yet to hear any b sides, but i do enjoy what i've heard. that being said, they are still far from being my favourite band. are they overrated? yeah. "the next u2" or "the next radiohead" titles are beyond annoying. people are far too quick to categorize bands as "the next fill-in-the-blank", and this sometimes ruins the music. i can think of more than a few songs i used to like that i got extremely sick of after hearing too much of the song or reading too much about the band.

if you don't like them, don't listen to them, don't read about them, turn off the radio when you hear "clocks" for the 14th time that day, and put on something that youlike better. just cos you're a u2 fan doesn't mean you have to worship the same bands that everyone else here likes.

oh and if i hear "yellow" one more time, i'm going to pound someone's head in. i am still sick of that song
