    I don't want to wobble the foundations of this entire fine thread, and I can't be bothered to spend five hours on Google looking for Justin Hawkins quotes, but.... did The Darkness ever actually claim to be the new Guns N' Roses, or even say they were influenced by them?  I always thought they were more like a weird mix of AC/DC and Queen.
    Honestly, both's an insult to Guns N' Roses.

    It's The Darkness FFS.

    Their guitar work was lame yet they run around saying they saved rock when The Darkness actually pissed on Rock's door, gate crashed the party and acted like it knew all the cool bands inside.

    You've taken my question and responded to it as if it was a statement.  Cheers.

    Here's another question - did they ever "run around saying they saved rock"?  I don't remember that either.

    Are you asking for a dedicated The Darkness suck thread?
    What are you asking?
    Stop asking for things.


    Can you actually read English? 

    This IS a dedicated The Darkness suck thread.  You started it and you're the one keeping it going, you buffoon.


    Yeah...

    I think they're lame.
    I'm glad it's on record.

  • This is brilliant, please keep this thread going for ever.

    I quite like the Darkness, but for the sake of balance, they are a bunch of posers who can gargle my balls and eat my full and meaty turds!!

    I should have been signed by now, maybe not to a record label, Mary Spender had me sign a piece of paper her lawyer delivered telling me to stay 100 yards away at all times, does that count?

    Can I borrow that afterwards?
    The Darkness said Pinewood Smile was in your face with its guitar work like Appetite For Destruction was this year...
    and nobody said anything about it (but me)
    - that wall actually does look appealing to me now.

  • Apparently we both (me and The Darkness) both hate Southern Railway... but....


    Other than that, they suck.

    I mean, we both like Guns N' Roses... but....................

    I sort of see that like my sainted mother and The Darkness as posers...

    Like, Southern Fail don't go to Suffolk, that's Anglian probably (IDK who). Posers singing about my sucky railway when they have no right why I oughta... Selling tickets and records to target me instead of being of me in the genre that is stale because of thee; The Darkness.... Last of our Kind gives me hope, wishing it would die already and be put out if it's misery dealt to the record industry today.

    The Darkness are the kind who gave us S Club 7 dressed up as Motley Crew.

  • IDK who I don't like more, Southern Rail or ASLEF or RMT, but still, Southern do suck.

    I'd never write a song about it though.

    Even this song without so much guitar rocks way way way more than The Darkness ever tried.
    Gave it a listen.

    It's still pants.

    But you know what? I have choices.Maybe I could start a thread running to several pages (of mostly my own posts) explaining (badly) the reasons for not liking Republica,or I could put something else on (which I do like) and move on (hint,hint).
    In my life,why do I give valuable time to people who I'd much rather kick in the eye.

  • Each to their own, but if I don't put it out there that The Darkness suck, how else are these record companies going to know who's going to sell/go multi platinum?

    Rejection of The Darkness running around when they did singing and saying what they did is like hating the X Factor for ruining the industry; perfectly just in order to send the right message to the people producing this stuff.

    I think the record company are probably quite happy that they backed The Darkness tbh.

    Nothing like a bit of humility. 

    Seriously dude, this forum is loaded with players who have tried to make it, had deals, played great stages and still not quite tipped the balance. There are a good few still trying to make it, a number of pro players and session guys who are in regular work, alongside the rest of us mere mortals who love playing -but none of us are this angry or bitter.

  • This thread is stranger than the time I went to a "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" themed party at a 90s pop bar. And that was pretty fucking weird! 
    Don't you try to out-weird me. I get stranger things than you free with my breakfast cereal.

    I am so sick of local (I mean it, it hurts, they're local) Local Dub Step people my age getting a break, local rap, but when you write a rock song, it's not going to get signed because rock labels are pop labels today.

    I'm from Thornton Heath, we're getting people get signed all over now, but not in rock.
    Whenever I try I get turned down.
    Why should I change my art when they can just sign me?
    Have you actually tried to 'get signed'? If so, how?

    Why doesn't the world recognise how bloody awesome my bass playing is?

    I mean, I use all 4 strings - often above the fifth fret, and I even change volume or tone sometimes. 

    These two-bit "professional" bass players don't deserve the break they get. I mean, I bet you can't name one bass player out of a modern band that is any cop at all.




    Now that's not unreasonable at all, is it?

    Their bass player isn't as good as me. It's criminal.

  • OP. Genuine question. Did Justin steal your girlfriend or something? You’re being an utter dick for no reason. The darkness were a massive band and are still quite big. Justin is a funny likeable bloke. Just chill out man and start a thread about pretending to go to America or something,

    The Darkness are shit or good. They may have copied G&R (who are also shit or good) but G&R don’t know that they copied many other bands and started as a parody that people take seriously. 

    Coldplay are shit but I’m not telling you why.
     Why?
    Why should I?
     Why not though?
     Don’t want to. 
    But fredom states that you must tell me your thoughts 

    Even though I’ve written it out I still have not a fucking clue what’s going on with this thread.
    Just to recap, 

    my comment above still stands. 85 posts later....
