You may not have listened to everything, but you could have listened to ANYTHING and it would have been better than Franz frickin' Ferdinand.

Take me out is okay, average and overplayed. Their other songs have been awful.

I know they have. I only mentioned Franz Ferdinand because I like that song.

Well, you know that I won't say 'The Beatles',
because I HATE them with a passion!!!

Even they probably already know that it's crap..........

(I'm only kidding!!)

So here's a few artists (in no particular order of quality or success), that should support the theory that the Brits make fantastic music.

1. Prodigy
2. Pink Floyd
3. The Cars
4. Bruce Hornsby & The Range
5. Chris Rea
6. Franz Ferdinand

That'll be all for now.....
Ok just a couple of questions:

1. Aren't the Cars and Bruce Hornsby American. Im almost certain the cars are from Boston and maybe im confusing Hornsby because he went to Berklee School of music (in boston) but I was certain they were from here.

2. You said brits are making, implying that its still currently being made well, and your first two out of the gate are people who, if their making music, its complete ****. Did you actually buy Gilmore's new album? And I can't recall one decent thing prodigy did this century.

It's the other way around I'm afraid. Take Me Out is their worst.

I would say Take me Out is their best, only because that is the only one of their songs that I can actually listen to without ripping off my ears. They are awful.

Anyway let's not turn this thread into a Franz Ferdinand discussion. Let's press on. I have another opinion on the whole Brits vs Yanks argument-I think that while I prefer British music the Americans as a whole have done a lot more for the music industry-they have brought us many fantastic genres that we wouldn't be listening to today if it wasn't for them. So, with that in mind, maybe the Yanks are better at making music after all?
