    They're actually quite the hype.

    Do you mean they're good, or they're not good but people hype them to be?

    They're quite popular in the UK at the moment. They just re-released that not so long ago, and got to #2. I think they were #1 at Christmas with another dodgey song like that also

    Edit: I didn't realise it said what year it was released (didn't look)

    What happened to England? They were so great with bands like the Beatles and the Stones, and they were still OK even after that, but now...:lol:

    I don't know Xen...I don't think they're Spinal Tap or something.

    I think they actually want to be commericially successful. Then again, they might be just so we can laugh at them...

    They're pretty successful, they're funny and better as Britney Spears and atomickitten and I got pretty quick accustomed to them, so I'm satisfied for the moment.

    I'd oppose anything that brings back tight bodysuits with zippers open to the crotch on men. Anything.

    Hey, you take that back! I liked the 80s! :cry:

    It's not that much different to today.

    Cars were pretty much the same, we had cool TV shows like Star Trek TNG, NASA was the same, our militaries looked the same, we had luggable bricks in leather cases called cellphones or something, Amigas ruled instead of PCs ... and all-in-all, not really that much different to today except the skateboards in the 80s were infinately superior to today's cheap copies... Yay! Bring back the 80s! :D

    Reminds me, I've been watching some tv thingie, and they said they were on a awards show, where they performer usually would see themselves on a screen. Except the Darkness, the insistited that the screens be turned off, while they where on stage. They propably know that they look like dorks, but who cares. At least they can play instruments. That's a lot and quite uncommon, today.

    Well i'm pretty sure they were miming whilst on TOTP's, when singing that Christmassy song. If not, they definately weren't actually playing their guitars (or they were, but they weren't connected to the speakers ;))

    They kinda remind me of Queen, except not as talented...

    Maybe they can play, but guitar talent shouldn't be tasted on 80s style solos. :p

    Yes, given how terrible the 80s were, I guess Reagan is the last resort...

    Cgannon, you should try to find a videoclip of Modern Talking to get the real 80's feeling ;) .

    I love The Darkness! I'm going to see them when they come down here to play a festival on Friday (along with the Strokes, Muse, Metallica, Datsuns, Kings of Leon, Flaming Lips and Dandy Warhols)

    Lucky Me :)
