I Hate Coldplay

I realise I'm in the minority here, but I'm just gonna come out and say it anyway: I hate Coldplay. More and more with each passing day, in fact.

And there's no escape. They are everywhere. Radio. TV. Even film - it seems obligatory to have at least one Coldplay tune in a film's soundtrack nowadays.

Who is buying their music? Cos I may have to shoot you when the revolution comes.

    I think the phrase you're looking for is 'a bunch of bed-wetting public school nancy boys who'll be first against the wall when the revolution comes'.

    I quite like the first two albums but I too am getting sick of the all-pervading Coldplay-ness that we do seem to be subjected to. I don't even fancy Chris Martin any m ore now he'd got that weird thing going on with his hair.

    Hiya, you could be right about the OCD and jaw thing - if stress is linked to anxiety and anxiety is linked to OCD, I guess it's possible. :o)

    I like *some* of Coldplays music, but even so I do agree with you about the current mass media onslaught of their music. I used to like their song 'Fix You', but every time I hear it now I just cringe!

    Hope all is well with you! [Hug]

    I call Coldplay "U2Me2". They so blatantly rip off U2. They'd be good as a U2 tribute band. The lead singer sounds like he spent much of his teenage years alone in his bedroom, singing along to his copy of "The Joshua Tree" and trying to copy Bono's nasally voice *exactly*.

    I hate Coldplay too. They are so bloody bland. I found your blog by googling "I hate Coldplay". When I said the same thing at work today my colleagues seemed almost horrified. And it's not just sad middle-aged gits (like me) who are buying their records, even the young seem to have been infected.

    What really gets me about Coldplay is that when you admit to hating them, everyone around instantly assumes you simply 'don't get' them despite the fact their music is so dreadfully dull. And now they even have copyists like Keane and Athlete! God help us all.

    Coldplay are so over rated they should burn in hell along with all their sad pathetic fans...

    Yeah, I also found this by searching "I hate coldplay". And I do. I'm going to kick the cr@p out of that whiny little bitch, Martin. He truly will be shot at dawn after the revolution. There's so much good music out there, but the morons keep lapping it up from Coldplay. Fools. Get a life.

    I googled, I hate Coldplay. Good to see there are others who dont like them either.

    Coldpay are what I call'call centre, melancholy'.

    Oh and when crazy frog was not letting them get one of there bland tracks to number one, it was 'Sooooooooo' like unfair according to Radio 1.

    Its time for some elements in the right on media to wake up and smell the crack cocaine that seams to ever cloud thier judgements and all those who buy Coldplay-


    I prefer the Crazy Frog, its got more charisma.

    Come on if you are going to be an inernational music star, 'Chris Martin', wow that name surely will solve all world poverty.

    Something is VERY wrong here.

    What a sickly, bland, wannabee political right on mediocre group.

    Mental. I just looked at the NME web page and the headline was, like it has been every other day for the last 2 years, something incredibly boring about Coldplay. Incensed, I hurriedly typed "I hate coldplay" into google and wound up here. It's so pleasing to know that others feel the same way!

    well, i am quite in love with coldplay. chris martin is a beautiful person. coldplay's music is something that i find unique and touches me quite deep. some of their songs are not any good (unless heard repeatedly) but most are just awesome. i don't like rock that is all screaming and cursing!! Why can't we have bands like coldplay? they are relaxing, sensitive, beautiful. the words transport me. i don't know why you would hate them with such a burning passion...
