    Is it true that Slash worked as a fluffer for Justin Hawkins early in his career? I'm sure I heard that once

  • Ok... U2. 

    I just find them very much vanilla and that spunk trumpet front man needs to get his head out of his arse.

    The Darkness have their tongues firmly in their cheeks.

    I don't even want to think where GnR have had their tongues. As I've said before, they are a semi-competent bar band with a singer that sounds like a cat being tortured and if their stuff had been released twenty years earlier they would, at best, have been a footnote in the history of rock music.

    Well done those trying to name bands they don't like.

    But come on, this is supposed to be a thread about The Darkness being really shit.  Especially in comparison with Guns N' Roses who are, like, really not shit.

  • When I was younger I used to love and like bands, hate bands, have complex reasons for both.  Ideology of music etc. actually took it seriously enough it probably cost me some friends at times.

    Then I grew up and found caring too much about that sort of thing counter-productive, I've got a lot else going on now.  The positive side is the best thing about music, the negative side is just another reason for people to be shitty to each other and there is too much of that.

    If a song or band makes you happy or brings a smile to your face, well great it's entertained you, fair enough, even if I think it's shite.  However if something has inspired you to pick up an instrument, got you through a tough time or touched your soul, I'd positively be an asshole if I argued with that.

    Back on-topic though ;), GNR did a stunning first album then a load of coked up nonsense that sometimes was great (November Rain, You Could Be Mine) and sometimes atrocious (Civil War, the horrible, horrible covers) but that is just IMHO.  The Darkness on the other hand seemed at the time and still to be a fun, light-hearted take on the classic rock sound, and surprisingly great musicians on top of that.  That little harmonic on the end of the riff of "I Believe In a thing Called Love" is a little bit of genius.

    Taking two bands from such massively different approaches and basically saying "GNR were better", well yes, they were, but they were equally as much of a joke when they disappeared up their own asses!

    I think bands like The Darkness and Steel Panther are great because they are obviously just having fun and they don't really care what people think.

    I don't mind The Darkness, they're just a bit of fun and theyre great players. Met Dan a few months ago and he was a nice down to earth bloke. He was playing 2 plexis cranked and it was bloody loud. 

    My "most hated" is a cliché and the go to answer, but I really can't stand Coldplay. I don't think they're bad per se, just really really fucking boring middle of the road background noise for people who don't want their music to mean anything. 

    Apart from Blur I don't like any of the big britpop bands. Or the whole load of indie that followed in the 00s (stuff like the futureheads, libertines etc) - apart from Arctic Monkeys but even they went a bit downhill after the first album or 2.

    Not a huge U2 fan either but respect what The Edge does with delay.

    There's hundreds of bands and artists I like and probably thousands that I don't, so...er.... I don't bother to listen to the ones I don't like. Makes sense, right?

  • I find them incredibly dull and bland.  The music has no excitement and they are pretty much the soundtrack that white, middle aged, middle class suburban women would listen to when they're getting ready to go to a wine bar.  
    -we're still talking about GNR, right?

    In GnR's favour, they did have the line "with your bitch-slap rapping and your cocaine tongue, you get nothing done", which I'm sure we'll all concede is poetry on a Keatsian level.

    But The Darkness were nearly as comedy.

    And they just ripped off the Darkness.

    To me, they tried too hard to be something they weren't and their sin was branding themselves as Guns N' Roses and Appetite, is offensive when you see Pinewood Smile as a lame attempt of What's The Story Morning Glory which Rocks, about an erection basically... Which, to me, stinks of Geeky and not having a girlfriend, opposed to Appetite, IMO.
    If The Darkness just didn't call themselves the next Guns N' Roses, but they did because they're more like the Kanye West of Rock.

    Is this you?

    Loads of bands I don't like. 

    Luckily I bought some records by other bands I do like instead.

    I really don't like Guns'N'Roses, at all. I like Slash's guitar playing, but that band have me reaching for the off-switch.

    Another one that makes me switch off is Status Quo.

    The Darkness had a bit of humour about them (their best bit being unintentional, when Justin stormed off from the Eurovision qualifiers), but only the Bee Gees can do falsetto properly.

    That was actually post-Darkness, FWIW. He was on just a little (i.e. a lot!) too much coke at that point...

    If you were old enough to be a rock fan in the 70s you might well have seen the arrival of GnR as a lame, retro pastiche of better things which had gone before, I know I certainly did. 

    At least The Darkness did it with a sense of irony. 

    Ultimately both bands dress up in silly clothes and make lightweight, occasionally hilarious dad-rock, but only one of them actually knows it. 
    Quality post. Well said.
