I hate bands like Bon Jovi and U2 who just follow the trends to the full - if you see an old U2 video they have mullets and do that spazzy back and forth arm dance everyone did at the time. The moment people think it's naff they drop it. *Spits*
I still dont see how anyone can like The Darkness yet mock Bon Jovi, Tigertailz, Ratt, Poison, Skid Row, Motley Crue etc because it's the same thing. It's like hair-metal never died.
But it did and that's a good thing
They're not exactly what you'd call GOOD, but nice for comedy value.
If you like The Darkness, you also like Poison, Saxon, Warrant, Van Halen, Ratt, Tigertailz and any other number of camp-rock icon bands.
The Darkness - for irony laden fashionistas to wear lyrca to The Barfly and talk about "how now they are maaan", whilst not realising it's Euro-Metal from 1986.
You should know better.
"What sits on your Wotsits!"
It sounds just like 'em.
I think Zane Lowe is the best example of multiple personality syndrome you could hope to find. Especially when he used to do Brand:new. I actually used to think it was two different people. When he interviews bands he's the most kiss ass person ever, and then when he's on his own he makes sarcastic and nasty comments about them. I hate the guy really.
