RightNation.US: Coldplay Might Just be the New Supertramp - RightNation.US

Jump to content

-----
For me, that is. See, I loathe Supertramp, but I can only allow myself one band to really, truly hate. This cover of The Beastie Boys' Fight for Your Right might just cause me to move my feelings for Supertramp over to indifference...

(Warning for lame attempts at bad language)


This is what they were trying to do...

(Another language warning--it's a gangsta rap, so be doubly warned.)


It was kinda funny over a decade ago for a bunch of doughy white people from the other side of the tracks to make an acoustic version of an NWA "song". Irony, I think they call it. Coldplay can't really do ironic. It'd be like U2 covering an Iron Maiden song.

I think one more incident and Coldplay knocks Supertramp off as my most hated. In fact, if I hear lead singer, Chris Martin, utter the name, Barack Obama, one more time, that's it. Probably the most uncool thing I've ever seen is that guy incongruously yelling "Barack Obama" at the end of his performance on SNL. I dropped my midnight snack I was so nonplussed.

Dont worry.

In the land of his birth, Martin is also considered a 'complete wanker'.

Have you ever had In-n-Out Burger? Well, it's kind of like when you smell In-n-Out Burger and get all excited, but then realize it's someone's body odor. Now you're completely grossed out. When I first heard Coldplay, I thought it might be a new U2 song. Now when I hear them, I get the In-n-Out effect. They're just too close to post Zooropa U2 without being U2. They're musical body odor.

And now this.

For me, that one band is Foreigner. I don't know why, really. I can't explain it. Deconstruct their songs and they're not much different than anybody else's of that era. But there's just something about them that's fingernails-on-a-chalkboard to me.

Well I can't deny being surprised: Supertramp & Foreigner? Oh well, I guess it'd be a mighty boring world if we all thought exactly the same, LOL. As far as Foreigner goes I readily admit they aren't anywhere near my "favorite", but I also can't say I "hate" 'em. The Foreigner songs I know are OK, if not exactly "great". But Supertramp is definitely one my favorites, one of the bands I do consider great. I can't think of a Supertramp song I don't love.

Well, if they cease being the one band I allow myself to hate, I might have to stop changing the station as soon as their songs come on. Then I might grow to like them again.

It happened with The White Stripes. I couldn't bear the sound of Jack White's voice until I got into The Raconteurs. Now, it's all good.

Coldplay is dead to me, though.

I love Lou Graham's voice, but I'm still not a huge fan of Foreigner.

I....um.....don't know anything whatsoever about Coldplay. :blush: I listened to that video (and admit it pretty much sucked, LOL), but that's now the one Coldplay song I've ever listened to, that I know of.

The problem with Coldplay is they are oh-so precious...and they know it. One look at their album artwork, and one is immediately prepared for snooty, passionless music.

One of the best bands of all time and another Hall of Fame snub

I knew that once a read the Supertramp in the title, it had to be a Mindcleaner blog.

Here you go Chris. One of the best Supertramp songs of all time and one of their most progressive ones

Except that Supertramp once got David Gilmour to play his guitar on one of their songs. I don't see Coldplay being able to achieve that.

I don't see Coldplay getting Mili Vanilli to play on their songs.

While I agree with your contempt for Coldplay and covering Beastie Boys, I have a greater abomination in the front of my head.



After seeing/hearing that act of cruel and unusual punishment, this song below becomes an act of beauty.
