R.E.M. or Coldplay?

Since there's no actual forum here to discuss other music(if there is, please move it there for me), I'm putting this in here.

So, two bands around now that are really good mates with U2, but which one is your favourite?

I like both, but I'll go with R.E.M., because I've been a fan longer of them than Coldplay.

Coldplay by far not much of a fan of R.E.M.

R.E.M. tower over Coldplay like something huge towers over something very small

R.E.M.

They were basically the founders of the college rock scene of the '80s with some other bands and still great and relevant until Reveal

Coldplay tagged onto the heals of Radiohead, U2, and R.E.M. themselves to make decent music, but nothing new.

REM easily, a better band than Coldplay will ever be (for the record, Im not anti-Coldplay, Parachutes and A Rush Of Blood To The Head were good albums IMO).

I like Coldplay well enough, but REM by a country mile.
