Whatchatalkinabout, it's one of the biggest band threads on here, plenty of people here like them. Your friends must have a shit taste in music.

Monkeys were fine with their debut, which was good for what it was. A solid sing-a-long with amusing lyrics etc.

Second album was pure turd and they seem to have cast off whatever fun they had and take themselves way too seriously, as though they are the saviours of modern music.

Not sure where you're getting this "saviours of modern music" crap but I'm pretty sure it didn't come from them. They certainly haven't made such a radical departure in their sound to merit such a harsh reprimand, but even if that was true it doesn't really explain why a more serious sound would equal bad music. Either way, it's a fact that they're the best thing to happen to British music in the past 5 years. Record sales and critical reception speak in my favor.

well this thing about them being saviors of music and other things like that began from articles in british music magazines like Q and NME. anw I don't think they take themselves so seriously and I really admire Alex Turner's work ethic.also I enjoyed both of their albums, yeah their debut is better but I also like "Favorite Worst Nightmare", which I believe has a few better melodies

Speak for yourself. Do Me a Favour and 505 are unbelievable tracks. I prefer Favourite Worst Nightmare.

Here's a good one. For those of you who don't already know, I'm a pretty big fan of Fall Out Boy, they're newest album is total radio crap though.

Old. I saw them on tour with Tiffany in 1989. In my defense it wasn't really by choice, my uncle tricked me into going with him and his step-daughters.

The Lion King was great movie but the music wasn't very good IMO.
