The Scissor Sisters...

I can't decide whether or not I like their music. Y'all for and against the group...state your cases for if you love 'em or hate 'em.

They absolutely butchered Comfortably Numb, and for this, I cannot ever forgive them.

They killed the best song ever.

Good campy fun - I perfer their orginal songs - I can see how a person who likes the orginal comfortably numb would be offened -It is kinda like Clay Akin (sp?) covering WTSHNN - just not right on any level as that song is sacred and shall not be covered by anyone
I like Filthy/Gorgeous - very campy pre-party fun

I think those rap girls that ripped of the Wall were far more worrying.

I like Scissor Sisters, that backseat song, love that one. And comfortably numb. And tits on the radio

I have heard much ado about them, but I have yet to hear any of their music.

Yeah, I know that's not helpful.

I saw them live at a festival a couple of weeks ago and I was impressed (and that doesn't happen easily). Their songs are okay (don't know if I would play the cd at home), but what was the coolest was the show. Very entertaining...

I love what I've heard so far on cd.
I haven't seen any videos.
I am going to see them September 24th at a small club.

Eh...I don't like the CD that much but I kinda liked the Glastonbury set I downloaded. I'm seeing them on the 12th, they're playing here with The Killers.

Trying to keep an open mind since I've heard they might be opening for U2.

I havent heard them yet, and I'm not really jumping at the gun to hear them either. I'll keep my mind (and ears) open to them when I finally do though.
