I don't wish to be rude, and I am open to most kinds of music, but there are a tiny few sacred cows that drive me mental.

Queen are utterly pretentious, forgettable, lightweight shite. In 1976, when Anarchy in the UK was released, Queen released “You’re My Best Friend”. In 1977, when The Clash released their first album, along with the likes of Elvis Costello, Buzzcocks, The Jam and The Sex Pistols, Queen gave us the idiotic, singalong dumbfest that is “We Are The Champions”. Says it all.

U2: A pub band who got lucky. A lead singer with an ego to make Paul McCartney look humble who, despite being nearly 60 and surrounded by unimaginable wealth such that he can have his hat flown first class to a gig when he left it behind at one of his homes, believes he speaks for “the kids” and “the poor”. They truly believe they are world changers, when in fact they are an instantly forgettable bunch of twits whose lumpen attempts at music belong in the Dog and Duck back room on a Friday night, playing for no fee but all the lager they can drink.

So there :D

I make you right about Queen . I liked em up until Bohemian Rhapsody , that destroyed em as anything to be taken seriously .
When I saw them supporting Mott the Hoople they were a proper band .

At the time I thought U2’s Boy was a superb debut album . All downhill from there .
Are they still going ffs ?

Yep. Shit. Complete shit. Big old bag of shit. Big old smelly bag of shitty shit. Wrapped in a wrapper of shit. With a shit dressing.

They were lucky - right place, right time with nothing at all new to say. Terribly forgettable. I've been "treated" to their music since the War album (great cover by the way), and to be honest, the only tunes I can actually recall in their entire repertoire are The Streets Have No Name (good intro) and Angel of Harlem (which I do actually like). Other than that, it's all pretty mundane. In my opinion.

The main driver for their fame is not really their music though, which is just play-by-numbers rock, but their sanctimoniousness and hectoring pretentiousness.

They constantly shout slogans and march about on stage calling on "people" to do more - more for charity, more for peace, more for the poor and the vulnerable. Then get back into their private helicopters to be whisked back to one of their many homes.

They criticise the US and Britain - paint them as demons - while greedily taking the money these huge, free markets deliver.

They whine about governments not contributing to poorer nations, and yet they move their business from Ireland to Holland to avoid the tax they would have to pay were they to stay in their native land.

They spout on about nations donating to charitable causes, yet they cosy up to Apple (one of the world's great tax avoiders) and take millions for making their adverts.

They decry politics and politicians and the whole power game, yet have dinner and photo calls with George Bush, Blair - anyone willing to stand next to Saint Bono in the range of a camera.

They profess to despise class and privilege, yet they accept honorary Knighthoods from the queen.

They are a vacuous, hollow, self-serving bunch of sloganeering, pretentious knobs pretending, and failing, to be a rock and roll band.

But other than that, they are completely fine. :D

Oh, and as far as Anderson goes, good footballer, but I bet the bloke can't play guitar for toffee. :D

I agree with some of that, post Achtung Baby, but to say they had nothing original to say before that is Bollocks, have you listened to War?

Joshua Tree has been widely acclaimed as one of the best albums ever released and, whilst I don't agree, it's fucking ridiculous to suggest that the only good thing to come from it, according to you, was an intro.

Play by number rock = Beatles and every other band who wasn't doing Prog. Again, a ridiculous criticism.

The rest has nothing to do with their music, but wouldn't disagree; I can't fucking stand what they've become, but to use that bias to taint their early efforts is just bollocks.


Anyway, just can't stop having this on rotate right now :D :
