I doubt the Killers(and I live in Vegas), ever listened to or dug Morrissey/The Smiths, but guess who says that in every ****ing interview they get a chance to do? you guessed it, Brandon Flowers. Most of the time, some band says that so they can dupe some unsuspecting fan into buying their worthless cd. If they were any good in the 1st place, they wouldn't need to do this, their music would stand up by merit, and how wonderful it is, but often times, thats not the case IMHO.

Now, you can make a case that their first disc had an '80's sound, which it did, sorta.

Listen, you guys can give me **** all you want for liking what I like, and so forth. I could be wrong in many eyes, but thats what I like, can't fault you or I for liking who/what we/I do.

The reason why I like 80's music so much is, especially w/Synthpop, SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many people/groups took chances w/music then, and went to places they might not have gone before, and the music, for the most part, was fantastic, and phenomenol. Now, were there some stinkers along the way, of course, as is the case w/any genre' But, was there ALOT of brilliance too? of course. Those 80s: Depeche mode/ Siouxsie/Echo and The Bunnymen/Smiths/Thompson Twins/Chameleons, etc cd's are brilliant IMHO. Do they have some downright clunkers on them? of course, but when you bought those cd's, there was like 5-6-7 + songs on the disc that were tremendous, and worth keeping.

Nowadays, you're lucky to get 1-2 songs, and the rest of the disc, I'd wipe my arse with, it's THAT ****ty.

I just think most of todays music, is bands/people trying to copy, or duplicate what happened in the 70s/80s, and when they cant/couldnt do that(and still havent IMHO), they sounded even ****tier, and ruined the original bands/music they were trying to emulate in the first place.

I dont think they can copy/duplicate some of the magnificent stuff that was released in the '80s, but they continue to try, and it pisses me off. Alot of these bands i just cant get into...sorry.

You seem to be confirming my statement...the Killers are not a particularly good example to use when I am talking bout people who say modern music sucks don't actually listen to much in the way of modern music.

Are you trying to tell me duran duran took chances? get stuffed.

Yep. When people go on and on about how music used to be so great in this decade or that decade and it all sucks now, it usually says a lot more about them than it does about the actual state of music.

Now I probably hear stuff like Led Zeppelin , Queen , The Eagles , Guns n Roses , U2 or Coldplay much much more than some of the stuff I choose to listen to. If your in a workplace with a radio on you can't avoid this stuff so why the hell shouldn't I be allowed to moan about it once in a while?
I don't dislike Stairway to Heaven or Bohemian Rhapsody or Hotel California or Where The Streets Have No Name or Another Brick In The Wall to appear cool or hip or edgy or to make my own taste in music look superior. I dislike them because i'm bored of hearing them and i'm bored of being told how great they are. I mean i've had to put up with some of this stuff since fucking childhood so can you blame me for wanting to cause bodily harm to anyone playing them. I mean how many fucking times do you need to hear them.

And when someone replied to me 'You can't say that it's a classic'
Just hold me back or have an ambulance standing by.
Honestly, I hated all that stuff from the start; overplaying it just makes it worse.

I was somewhat disappointed by this entry; I expected an anti-Beatles fan rant.

5 : Ringtones

It's a fucking phone. It's for phoning your friends and arranging meeting times at the pub or whatever.

It is not a device for advertising to the world how shit your taste in music is. Your not impressing anybody by continually blaring out the intro of your favourite shitty chart song at maximum volume every 5 minutes.

Ringtones - Music downloads , only for cunts

That's not what i'm complaining about though. at least if it's released like that you have the choice if you want to pay the extra or not.
How would you feel if they released it with the bonus disc for the same price as the original a few months later. That's what i'm talking about here.

And would you really pay almost double for a CD just because it has a couple of bonus tracks on it?
