Glad some of y'all like the cover. I see no reason not to buy into The Darkness. I think I'm going to pick up Permission to Land soon. Even my husband likes them, and he can be pretty picky about his music.

And thanks, yertle, for finding a place to get the song.

And there is, in fact, something to like about Andrew WK?

nothing against you if it doesn't appeal to you, but there's a joke there. it's fun. cheesy metal-ish stuff with keyboards.

i'm not saying you've got to like AWK if you like the darkness or vice versa, but it's the same sort of thing for me.

the only crap thing about the Darkness is Dan Hawkins is a Norwich City supporter...

I have no love of Andrew WK myself, I think like the Darkness he falls into the 'love or hate' camp. Read the pitchfork review of his album though - it throws all their credibility out of the window. OK, Mr Schreiber, let's get this, you're having fun and enjoying the listen but because it doesn't fit in with your pre-conceived notions of good you're going to violently repress this? for real!

no further discussions on the shiteness of pitchfork though, please, or in fact, on andrew wk. go the darkness! let's see some thumbs!

They're a fun band. I just got the cd a couple days ago, and if you're not looking for serious stuff, this is a great cd. It's kind of a mix between Led Zeppelin and, say, Motley Crue or Poison, with a nice sense of humor thrown in. Definitely nothing heavy, but nice songwriting and one-of-a-kind singing (the man has RANGE).

I like em.

Love the videos...But the whole "Dio" thing just loses the script for me.
