It's true. Coldplay could very well be the cure for Insomnia.

back on topic, the Foo Fighters kick ass. I've been a fan since the beginning

Yeah they're pretty lame. A few of their new songs sound like U2 rip-offs too.

40 Year Old Virgin did say it best.

They used to be better. They're still not bad or sell-outs or anything, i just find the new stuff pretty homogenous and bland. Its not poorly written or anything, just not very exciting
"How can we justify spending so much on destruction and so little on life?" Matthew Good

"The white dove is gone, the one world has come down hard, so why not share the pain of our problems, when all around are wrong ways, when all around is hurt, i'll roll up in an odd shape and wait, untill the tide has turned.....with anger, i'm dead weight, i'm anchored"- IME, God Rocket (Into the Heart of Las Vegas) ^ Some say this song is about a terrorists thoughts before 911

"Pray for the sheep" Matt Good
"But it's alright, take the world and make it yours again" Matt Good

I felt it in the wind, and i saw it in the sky, i thought it was the end, i thought it was the 4th of July.

I wouldn't have ever described Coldplay as "exciting"... but music doesn't have to be exciting to be good. :P

Sometimes it's just nice to relax to music.
