What does Rage's victory mean for X Factor?:
I would say , people are sick to death of being lied to by politicians.
Sick of the system that can award a war mongering president , the Nobel peace prize. Despise the system for supporting the bankers with a massive tax payers bailout, while allowing the climate change conference to be used as a front for their boring New World Order agenda. There is much trouble on the horizon, as the lies and deceit go on, we the people are tired of being taken as fools!

Good lord!

Let's express this outrage by paying 29p for a download. The revolution's here, and it's buying readily available products.

EDIT: also, i hope that's THE Charlie Watts.

See, personally I'm more bored with people posting about other people's apparent reasons for talking about Girls Aloud rather than simple, offhand comments about the band itself which I imagine are probably entirely genuine.
I mean Sound of the Underground probably is the best christmas #1 of the decade.

blimey, I'm only two posts in and already you're bored!

the simple truth and it's clearly evident is that nobody really likes girls aloud, it's all a pretence

It most certainly isn't the first time this has come up!

sorry if I'm recycling old material... I can't actually recall positing this particular opinion before

it's equally tiring the other way around- and admit it... you don't really like them, you're a grown man, for goodness sakes!

Oh, I don't think it was necessarily you. It's been coming up since back in those Bowlie days though.

Basically a load of us made up some guff about manmade climate change so that we could impose more taxes on the hard working average family and use the money to doss around.

Not just that, but for our whim we've subverted environmetal and climate science in the process despite the fact that on the surface it looks like exactly the same process of gathering information in a structured way as every other field of science.

RATM is part of this whole conspiracy. By organising a "grassroots" campaign to get revolutionary protest to Christmas number 1, next year we'll be able to organise another "grassroots" campaign to ban Christmas totally as it contributes to CO2 emissions, and we'll force people to eat traditional carbon neutral Winterville Vegetarian Quiche.

I don't believe no one told you Pete. I'd have thought the PC brigade would have popped round to let you in on it when you mentioned the "same old Tories" in a song.
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

I've no memory of bowlie, sadly

no, I'm just being a prick in respect of why would anyone like them- fuck it, I've bought records by them but I do feel amongst some there's this attitude that 'hey, I've bought a chart record by an actual pop band- I am the revolution' when buying a chart record by an actual pop band is an extremely commonplace thing to do... I also think that a lot of girls aloud records have lost their lustre over time and currently they seem like a spent force

I think that's- if not a particularly original thought- one that hasn't been peddled so often... they seem to be trading on past glories

anyway, all of this is because I wanted to crowbar in that 'godwin's law' comparison

sorry

they're shit and always were shit.

the only vaguely amusing thing they've ever done was call a record "sound of the underground" when they are, as a "band" formed on prime time tv and bludgeoned into the popular consciousness with millions of pounds of promotion money, quite literally as far from being underground as its possible to be.
As wrong as it was to do,

The single after that sounded exactly like Legal Man by Belle & Sebastian.

I forget what it was called.
There ain't no-one gonna turn me round

No Good Advice, wasn't it? I don't remember that sounding like Legal Man but the ballad that followed sounded like Wonderwall.

That's sounds in-fucking-credible. I wonder if there's any way to recreate such a thing on the unsigned-band-playing-for-nowt-in-a-pub scale...?
I may be ugly and hate-filled but... wait, what was the third thing you said?

Pockets Filled With Matches are no more, but we still have copies of our e.p. 'If Time Heals You' for sale, if you'd like one

I've wondered the same thing.

Later they covered Fight For Your Right To Party, which was either the best or worst thing ever. Either way i went home and played the fuck out of Licence To Ill again.

Yeah, they played that when I saw them. It was awesome. They also did the Ghostbusters theme.
