Default Ting Tings

Do I like these? I really can't decide. - The Ting Tings - Salford, UK - Pop / Alternative / Melodramatic Popular Song -

Annoyingly catchy is the best way to describe them. I feel like I don't want to like them (sounds daft I know) but I can't get their songs out my head - particularly the latest DJ one...

I love their singles, especially Shut up and let me go, but after hearing their album once it was clear they're a one trick pony. I didn't even feel like keeping it even thought every time I see one of their videos I get intrigued and want to hear it again....I'm pretty sure this is one of those extremely rare cases where ALL the good songs have been pulled as singles and there's just nothing left on the album to keep you interested...

The ting tings - Shut up and let me go

One hell of a catchy beat/guitar riff, but don't you just wanna punch that bloke? He has one of those chins that's just asking for it...twat...:|

Hey the woman's hot! (In a strange way!)

The 3 tunes I've heard from them so far(think it's the 3 singles) are really catchy. Can't see them lasting 30 years but they've got some decent songs!
Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk

rubbish band and incredible that that awful single did so well in the uk pop charts. it's hardly even slightly catchy. a victory for insanely clever marketing strategies.

i liked "that's not my name" mostly because it got catchy after a personal joke, the rest of the album hasn't phased me yet. i think also that there are worse looking girls in the world than her.

They're not bad, I can tolerate their songs but I wouldn't listen to them everyday. The singles are well done, but other than that I can tolerate their music but I wouldn't spend money on an album.
