Ok now thats a little harsh. Placebo are an awful band.. We've had our fair share of good bands, and they outweigh the crapness of Placebo if y'ask me.

To both of you ill say, its not that they are brittish (or not), and its not that they are crap (or not) its that they receive high billing in large concert festivals like redding, and if they came here, they'd be lucky to open. My jab comes out of this point, lets not be jingoisitc and stupid when each of our countries has put out its fair share of garbage.

Too right. I dont pay enough attention as to which bands come from which countries, hence why I didnt wanna post in this thread till you said that. I just had to defend ma country from the Placebo comment is all.

its "cocaine". at least attempt to present yourself as knowledgful. well for one daft punk, air and stereolab piss over any mainstream export from sweden- including the goddamn hives and abba..yea that god-awful band that may well be the most overrated pile of horse turd in the history of the music industry. if you call that "extremely talented" then it cant be me who's on mind-altering drugs.
but yeah, i suppose sweden as an ounce of musical heritage..unlike one country i can think of in eastern europe...the name evades me- cant be that important. though their football strip resembles the clothing of a clown.

we had to tie a steak round her neck so the dogs would play with her,
her mom had to be Pissed drunk just to breast feed her,
when born, the doctors had to fit her incubator with tinted windows....

WITH LOVE, FROM CROATIA....
