Doves "Snowden" video/Coldplay "Speed of Sound" video

In my last post I dissed Coldplay, and I got a ton of hate mail today (lie). Anyway, I totally stand by my correct opinion that Doves are a far superior band than Coldplay, but I've been wrong before. Here's Coldplay's "Speed of Sound" video and Doves "Snowden" video. Listen to both and see who you like better. Of course these are the videos and I'm asking about the music, but I do hope that it is evident that the song is played in the video.

editor's note: I had a long weekend of drinking in Cancun, last weekend, and another one ahead of me this weekend. Point being, alcohol has zapped my creativity so yet another music video post. Those Coldplay dudes look hard, don't you think?

Nothing, "Chris" if that is your real name. I mentioned in my post that I love Crohn's Disease. So who's the jerk now? I think it's you.

Did someone just say Coldplay is "wimp rock"? Does that mean that Danzig rules? Or maybe Henry Rollins?

Pretty good band in my opinion; easily better than most of the pop or "rock" shit released recently

Here are my feelings on Coldplay, they are the most over-rated band of the last 25 years or so. Sure they're OK, but all the people comparing them to U2 can suck a dick. All of their songs sound basically the same, and their lead singer is a douche who named his kid Apple. I know no one here has said they're as good as U2 but I've read numerous things comparing the two groups in the early stages. Also, if you asked the lead singer of Coldplay if they play "wimp rock" he'd probably say yes, but that's because he doesn't have scrotum, he's the most self-depricating (in a bad way) person that I've ever heard in an interview. If he had any balls he'd tell assholes like me to shove their over-inflated musical opinions up their ass and then go cash another check. So in summary, I estimate that Coldplay has about, at most, one decent album left in them, then they'll go the way of dinosaur.

I agree that Coldplay is probably on the way out and there is no way in hell that they should be compared to U2. However, I must admit that there are few very catchy tunes on A Rush of Blood to the Head. Their new album blows.

It's amusing how bent-out-of-shape people can get over bands.

While I would not compare them to U2 (especially to an avid U2 fan), I think they have more than one album left in them.

"Satisfied '75" - Danzig sucks, and there's really no way around it.
