Band snubbing

September 15, 2008 at 1:45 pm (misc music)

I’ve noticed lately that people have been making fun of Coldplay and The Dave Matthews Band.  What’s up with that?  I like both bands, not my favorites but I enjoy some of their songs.  Are they nerdy?  Not hip, anymore?  What?  What’s the deal?

    I’ll tell you the deal: they’re both over rated.

    Thanks, Cath, mystery solved. I can always count on you to solve life’s mysteries.

    Cold Play is gay

  4. Philly said,

    I thought you were ok also,,,guess we are wrong

    Neither have enough cowbell.

    Who cares what anyone says, don’t listen to them. Take that time to listen to the music you like instead.

    DMB is ok but I have no idea who or what this coldplay is.

  8. Libragirl said,

    Coldplay just sucks. DMB used to be good, then they began to believe the hype about themselves and now they are not good and yes Coldplay is a band that most gay men like.

    I think they’re considered too mainstream. I don’t have a problem with either of them, but I don’t particularly seek out their music, either. Lots of people have problems with my favorites, Foo Fighters, for the same reason.

    The thing is that lots of these bands are popular–meaning they have many fans–and therefore become uncool. Apparently one must have indie taste in music these days to be considered cool. That means that you have to claim to listen to bands that no one else has ever heard of.

    I have no tolerance for elitist snobs in music. Hmph.

    Don’t make me start a list!

    Son1 (who insists that he’s not gay) listens to both of them.

    So does my grandmother.

  11. Teri said,

    metalmom, that’s funny. Now, why would you have to be gay to listen to either? I guess this gives your son and his great grandmother more “common areas” to discuss? ; )

    I’m nerdy, not hip or cool.. so I can’t help. 🙂
