Minus the singer's vocal range, every hair metal/ACDC ripoff band.

Do they play fun, awesome, rock and roll? Yes.
Are they a complete, unoriginal, ripoff of music from 15 or 20 years ago? Yes.

Not that it's bad at all, but please don't play the "they're so original, they're saving rock and roll!" Game, a la Strokes, White Stripes, etc.

No it does not make you a dumbass in anyway, however some of the things you say sometimes are just ridiculous, trust me this isnt just me randomly saying this jord haha
saying the darkness is original is just wrong. I like what they are doin for music though, i definitly agree, in addition they definitly have skills!

It seems that most of their songs are about love and that is WAY too overdone. Their mesage would be cool 30 years ago but it has been done thousands of times. They also sound like they are trying to be a joke. I don't see the seriousness in their music.

I like the darkness... Sort of a refined 70's/80's hairband. I just hope there aren't too many power ballads on the CD. I might go pick it up.

The music is fun. Definitely rock-out-with-the-cock-out worthy... ;)

Not to say that the Darkness will ever be remembered in however long, but that's pretty much what tons of people said about Hendrix too "Oh it's just noise, he's an untalented hack, etc."

Hell, Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd got shit reviews from some people back in the day.

Oh, before you get all huffy about you not saying that, I know you didn't, it's just one of the better examples of not backing up your statements.

Like 243 said, wasn't directed at you.

The Darkness suck because:

They are like a million other bands. Pink striped tights don't make their music better or seperate them. Like most other crappy radio bands they are nothing more than your average high school garage band, who use brainless diatonic harmony and simple power chords. Usually these bands are put together by money grubbing R&A guys at big name labels as a cash grab, knowing full well they will fade quick. Its not music, its advertising. To me its the same as a commercial on TV that is filler between the real stuff. It is a shame image is what sells shitty bands like this, because you can bet there were a thousand just like them before they ever came along. Yes the guy has some strong vocal qualities, but so does Christina Aguilera.

I have several more reasons, but I'm sure that enough. Hey, one mans garbage is another mans gold. I'll stick to the gold though, thanks.

huzzah! :P

Actually, I mainly listen to bands outta the 60's and 70's, and Rush. I just happen to find The Darkness' big radio hit fun, and the music video is awesome, in a B-movie sort of way. Anyway, yes, 'tis plenty of reason for me.

it's not a huge groundbreaking amazing band but it's fun music and the video is cool and hilarious, especially when the guitar comes down from the ceiling into his hands :lol:

sadly i do not see how they parody anyone. i see it rather that they feed off of the same energy that drove those bands. i think they all have the best elements of the cars, queen, acdc.

and does all rock have to be serious? i would not classify the barenaked ladies as rock and i do not like them, but look at how long they have been around. more than 5 albums scores of awards and enought fans to fill every concert hall, all for some chickedy-china-the-chinese-chicken?

Oh, come on people. Why do you honestly care what other's think of your music? Obviously you have reasons for liking it, and they have reasons for not liking it. We don't need to bitch at each other because one expressed their view when asked. If you didn't want to know, don't make the thread.

The picture of "The Darkness" has a stroking resemblance to one of my favorite bands from back in the day, "The Cult". Note that the Darkness has even gone as far as to wear the same kind of fur hat.

...that being said, I don't mind them. They are a tad unique with the glass shattering vocals, but are refreshing break from the "my girl friend dumped me, my parents hate me, I am an addict, I need help, I should shoot myself" type rock that we get too much of these days.

You have to appreciate that.
