Obviously, I don't PERSONALLy belive that Coldplay or Babyshambles or kasier cheifs ar ethe best band of the past 5 years, but COMMERCAILLY they are. You can't argue with album sales and figures. Band in teh last 40 eyar slike the white stripes???? The reason there is no other like them is because they're ****. Ni the simplicity is the fact that they're no talented losers. Name me one good lyrical song by teh white stripes, I dare you.. Okay, name a band like Hot Hot heat. Okay so Seether, and american hi-fi are generic but they're talanted. More talnted than the White Stripes at any rate. And thinkign muse are head and shoulders above everyone is why you are an idiot my friend. Muse are good but they'r enot THAT good.

If i started a band mostly consisting of pre schoolers, we would still be better than Seether.

Fell In Love With A Girl has some clever lyrics, among others...Its not really the lyrics that make The White Stripes great anyway, their like AC/DC...They are more about the music than the message.

I still have not made my decision

that's yet another reason they're great, they play their own style, which is a mixture of all great styles, yet they still have their own distinct ssound at the same time.
Lucky enough to finally have beeen able to see them live on this recent tour and anotehr great sign of a good band they'er as good live as studio they played must've been 3 hours and they looke dlike they literally coudl've kept going for another whole set.
One ex co-worker put it in great words, 'They like to play as much as they like to get paid' I defintiely believed that when I saw them..

as musicians however they are too good. They have 3 different songwriters, which usually doesn't support longevity in any band. I am very jealous you got to see them however, they don't play too many Canadian dates

good lyrical songs? try one more cup of coffee, offend in every way, im finding it harder to be a gentleman, we're going to be freinds, little room (for a song 50 seconds long the lyrical content is a perfect summary of the stripes rise) and i fought piranhas. all have great lyrics. oh and little acorns. for just two people the music they produce is quite remarkable. and they are very very infulential- spawning a new-wave of two piece bands such as DFA' 79, the black keys, dresden dolls, viva voce and idiot pilot to name a few. for "no talented losers" they've done pretty well for themselves havent they? im not going to question your tastes because that would be stooping to your neanderthal, unfathomably low level.
However...one quip...seether talented? you've had your head too far up your arse for far too long. you call me an idiot when you cannot even spell "talented".

And so onto the Queens, granted minus olivieri they've lost a lot of the pinasche that in my opinion made them great. but their three albums prior to that bought desert, sleaze rock to the mainstream. three of the best albums for purely for their content for the past 5 years? can anyone really question that? and live they are unbelievable.

I've seen QOTSA live three times and they've always been crap. Whack the bass up so high nobody can hear the fact that Homme can't sing live. I was with quite a short girl who couldn't see the stage for one of the gigs, and she didn't even notice Mark Lanegan come on the sound was so appalling.

Great new bands?? American hi-fi, Seether, Hot Hot Heat, Fozzy, Reel Big Fish..

Who's the best?? i don't know..I think that you can't really decide.

I think comemrically someone liek Coldplay have relaly become the big band in teh past few years. However bands like babyshambles and Kaiser Cheifs are also pretty big right now (unfortunatky)

Tool - They have an extremely unique sound. Maynard James Keenan is a great lyricist and an even better singer. Adam Jones isn't very technical but writes riffs that fit the music perfectly.

Porcupine Tree - If I had to pick out who I thought most related to a modern day Pink Floyd, than PT would be it. Steven Wilson is an amazing singer and songwriter. His voice sort of lulls you into space in a Gilmour-esque fashion. They are a very diverse band and one that I think will be remembered a long way down the road.
