Good one. There's always a bit of concern when the "wrong people" like what you like.

I do understand what Urban is talking about though. A few members on here were complete noobs when it came to music but within 3 months they were world experts on British Post Punk or Avant Garde Rock. There is more to Music than just knowing a few facts and figures.

I have 2 Fall albums and I think they're good, not my fav post punk band, but I appreciate them. I also like Coldplay, deal with it.

Read Jackhammer's post , thats the sort of thing i'm getting at.

I'm not saying if you like band A you can't like band B.

I'm not really bothered when someone says they like the band, it's when they go 'OMG this is the best band evaaar' and they've got about 3 songs by them.

Snobs of the board unite

Any Half Man Half Biscuit Songs

OK those are the exception to the rule and are actually quite good. The rest I will be happy if I never ever hear again in my life. Anfield Rap , The Manchester Utd squad & Status Quo , Vinda****ingloo , Chas & Dave (Who are actually Crystal Palace fans not Spurs fans), all of them.

It used to be so different , way back when you used to get maybe one song a year for a cup final , maybe another one for a world cup where you'd see loads of footballers in track suits looking uncomfortable on Top Of The Pops having a jolly sing song , the song would scrape into the top 30 then sink back into obscurity just as fast as England got knocked out , and that was it. But then Sky poured their money into the Premier League and so all these plastic celebs come along declaring their life long love of football and what better way to express that passion by making some shitty record convincing the world that ING-URR-LAND are going to win whichever tournament they're taking part in.
Everytime some tournament comes along we're bombarded with these awful novelty records. Who in their right mind wants to hear Ron Atkinson or Terry Venebles crooning swing songs. I mean do you really want to hear a fine band like Echo & The Bunnymen collaborating with the Spice Girls? It happened alright ... for 1998 world cup in an abomination called How Does It Feel (To Be On Top Of The World) as if any England fan knows how that feels. Complete with cheesy video with David Beckham & Victoria lovingly gazing at each other.
It's not just the football songs themselves it's the songs picked up and sung by the terraces. I mean being surrounded in a crowd of people singing Hey Baby by DJ Otzi is enough to make anybody turn to football hooliganism.

Anyway to finish this rant I leave you with quite possibly the biggest abomination of this type ever.

Enjoy



3 lions and world in motion are exempt from this criticism
