I know, but I listen to them and I'm happy to say so.

I really like the first three albums -- a little filler, but a lot of the songs are brilliant. "Rush of Blood to the Head" is my favorite.

Couldn't get into "Viva la Vida" or much after that. Too pop for my tastes.

There's a stigma against Coldplay? I like anything I've heard from them.

Sorry, I'm living under a metaphorical rock. Most of the people I interact with like modern country

Disturbed recently did a cover of "The Sound of Silence". The singer really has some ability. They normally do stuff like this

Then they did this cover:

I can't deal with contemporary country -- as Tom Petty said, it's like bad rock with a fiddle.

And I've heard that Disturbed cover -- I see why people like it, but I'm not a big fan. Seems a little overblown to me.

Whenever I hear it, I feel like I have to listen to the original. Can't really top it, in my opinion. Unlike a lot of Simon & Garfunkle, it develops into something that is pretty much rock and roll -- especially considering when it came out.

And Coldplay -- you know some people -- once a band gets really popular, it's no longer cool. I have friends who will stop listening to a band once they hit the mainstream. And yeah -- sometimes the bands go mainstream too -- but they won't even listen to the old stuff. Kinda silly.

Personally I don't like them not because they're uncool but because they're bad.

Recently listened to Garbage 'Only happy when it rains'. Probably their best.
