Your Favorite Band Sucks, Part One

Yes, it's Coldplay butchering the Pretenders.



I don't care if Chris Martin IS married to Gwynneth Paltrow, he's fucking awful.

I dunno. He's not my favorite but I think his version is sweet. Heartfelt. I believe him somehow. I like that it's not overproduced, which, as much as i lurve Hyndes, her version is overall... colder.

of course, this is a concert, live, more immediate. it's nearly impossible to compare the two. c'mon steve, be fair! :)

No one, I repeat NO ONE, butchers covers like U2.

I know that has nothing to do with how badly Coldplay sucks, but I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in.

You're just like Chilly, the Elf Who Cannot Love.

Which makes two of us, I guess.

It won't be that version of "I'll Stand By You" by Carrie Underwood, will it?

No, I wouldn't inflict that on you, I promise....

Why would you imply that being married to Gwenth Paltrow would be redeeming. She won an Oscar for a horrible movie where she faked a horrible british accent. Unless you are a hardcore fan of Duets I don't see the logic.

steve simels said...

Well, I think she's a goddess, although that's mostly because of her mother.

Rinjo Njori said...

I would agree on Blythe Danner. She could act and was quite a looker back in the day.

Cleveland Bob said...

You're correct Steve. It's a horrible rendition, and I use that word in the worst possible Rovian context.

And yes, Blythe Danner was/is a doll.

Coldplay...Coldshit!!! Another modern rock act I may be hearing for the first time! Who listens to this crap? Is there something wrong with me for listening to Los Lobos or Dave Alvin instead of Modern Alternative Rock?

PS: thanks for turning me on to the Black Hollies, now there cool!
