I'm always curious if the reason a lot of U2 fans seem to badmouth Coldplay, Green Day, The Killers, etc is because they're currently very popular and blatantly stealing U2's spotlight?



Wow, that came out a bit more inflamatory than I meant it to...
It has nothing to do with U2 whatsoever, I just think the song is fluffy crap, just my opinion.

i saw a commercial on tv for it last night. no, i really didn't know about this. i may be on a u2 forum, but it's been several months since i've actually read a u2-related thread.

if you can get over the over-played singles, mtv exposure and the fact that it got teeny boppers to think they were punks and actually listen to the album from start to finish... it really is something to behold.

green day are what they are... accesable pop/punk/rock. they've never tried to be anything else.

i tried to listen to it. i did make it through once. the title track was the only single at the time, so i didn't have several overplayed tracks to worry about. i wanted to like it because i do like green day, or i did. i just don't like this cd.

if they weren't trying to be anything else now, would they be dressing up like my chemical romance? tell me that's not to sell records and appeal to the kids who were still in diapers when dookie came out. image does not equal music, but you don't think it sounds like they've taken any musical progression they were taking on 'warning' and tailored their melodies to appeal to today's mtv punk fans?


(although i must say, good shirt. the explosion )

I don't think it has anything to do with stealing U2's spotlight. U2 is not an indie band only a minority of people know about, they're a well-known band.

The Killers and the Bravery have some sort of "fued" between them. Their fued may be due to stealing each others' spotlights.

I think it's more that, when a band copies, or seems to be copying another band, the copycat or so-called copycat is gonna catch some flack for it. Which seems to be part of the reason for the fued between the killers and the bravery, but they're sort drawing from 80's synth pop so I don't know what's their problem.

I like a lot of bands, musical genres, U2 just happens to be my favorite.

.
The problem with that now former feud is that the lead singer of the Killers has become a raving ego maniac who needs to go away for awhile and learn some fucking tact.

I've never seen this particular Green Day video, but from what I'm reading I'm thinking it's fucking 'Hero' by Enrique. Crying, rain, sad dialogue, like watching the fucking Bold and the Beautiful or something. Hell, I've seen plenty of crappy Chinese pop singers capitalise on that formula in an attempt to win the teen girl market. What's the video actually like? Anyway, the song's very popular here, particularly since it was September sometime ago. Never heard it personally, but I've got friends who love them. Oh well.

I couldn't care less about Green Day, they've never hurt me. blink on the other hand...

Oh yeah, and as for U2, this is their what, fifth, sixth concert release? Do we seriously need yet more undistinguishable live versions of 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'? And before you say that this one has got all of those rarities like 'The Electric Co.' on it, you already own 2000 bootleg versions of it, your life isn't going to be better.

If it has Bono sticking the V's up to sum1 after throwing a bottle at him again, then YES!

Not exactly. This is a war-based video.

You must be mistaken. I don't give two shits what anyone on here says about Coldplay, it just gets beaten into the ground and that's the only problem I have with it. People are free to not like whatever they want.

I laugh when you make yourself look like a fucking retard
