Jesus Franz Ferdinand are garbage no matter what Bono says about them and the others ain't nothing to write home about either!

Whatever Mr Martin.
And do you think that if U2 had released the very overrated (at least on here) SYCMIOYO against the frog crap it would have still made number one???? Me thinks not!

Agreed 100%. They had one great song and the rest of their singles were just average album tracks.

Snow Patrol are my favourite band after U2. Unlike Franz Ferdinand they have more than one good song.

Quite right...talking about whether this band or that band is good is like debating if onions are good. Everyone has their own taste and you can't help what you like. All you can do is keep trying new foods.

OMG, I absolutely agree. The Arcade Fire and their music are so much more capable of being the best band in the world, more so than Coldplay. The AF are my second favorite group and their music makes me feel almost the same way that U2's does.

Man I've read this thread and it's made me laugh!

What are Coldplay now? The Anti-Christ??? The Anti-Bono??? Are U2 fans going to organise CD burnings because of their "We're bigger than U2" like they did for John Lennon's "Beatles are bigger than Jesus?" Seriously do you not see the parallels? A band is not allowed to have ambition? Chris Martin talks about reaching the heights of U2 cos they are the yardstick, it could be any band out there, he could have said the Beatles, the Stones, the Police, whoever. "Big, brash" statements are wrong when said by Chris, but Bono's been making the same sort of statements for 26 years. What's the difference?

So Coldplay don't do it for you? Well, U2 don't do it for a chunk of the population either. So what are you gonna do?

The hypocrisy of fans by claiming that U2 have "something to back" their own "biggest band" in the world statements. Geez. That was like 13 years ago, and the album was Achtung Baby.
