    Yeah, they're massive, but their fans are all fat, middle aged, balding white blokes. Not doing Glasto.

    The Cure are cool tho. Might have been uncool at their peak (I have no idea) but The Cure defo have an above-average fanbase in terms of coolness amongst younger people. Killers? Muse? Mumford? These bands have uncool fans who deserve to be bullied, but not The Cure. I was joking on that part, my friends aren't that weird, but Eagles are trash.

    If I told my dad The Eagles were headlining he'd probably say "That'll be decent", which sums them up. I've actually never heard my dad mention The Eagles in my life but he probably thinks they're good because of Hotel California.

    Eagles are The Killers for middle aged people (actually that's who The Killers are for isn't it). The Cure are The Strokes for middle aged people (and every other age). Only one of those pairs is headlining Glastonbury and it's the pair that you don't get bullied for going to see.

    Yeah but no one gives a damn about The Eagles who wasn't around when they were in their heyday, do they? The Cure are listened to by people of all ages, from like 15 upward I'd say. They're massive cultural icons and one of the first bands from the past people will check out when getting into alternative music (in the same way as the likes of The Smiths, Joy Division, etc.). I've never met anyone who actively likes The Eagles, never mind anyone under 40. If The Eagles headlined Glastonbury I doubt you'd find many young people there. I'd probably get laughed at for having a ticket to a festival headlined by The Eagles tbh.

    I'm recently 23 and they're big with people my age. I was like 15 when they made their comeback with Angles and they were one of my favourite bands at the time, and they were big with most people my age who were into indie music. I'm not sure whether people that age have any clue about them nowadays but I don't see why not. They must still be a pretty big starting point for people getting into indie music, in the same way Foos are for rock music. Is This It is a mainstay in conversations about essential indie albums.

    Yeah true. Macxit could have been months ago tho. He could have already pulled out when Neil got info on him playing

    ??? If we're going by critical acclaim then: 1. Is This It (Strokes) 2. Room On Fire (Strokes) 3. Hot Fuss (Killers) 4. Angles (Strokes) Hot Fuss is only 2 points ahead of Angles ffs.

    We're on about The Strokes not Pusha T.

    Fake or real ,line up poster 2019

    Not real, doesn't have The Strokes on it.

    That's the point, isn't it? They've been at weirdly short odds for ages, before they'd even announced their first shows. Suggests there were probably people betting on them since a long time ago, or at least one big bet on them.

    Led Zeppelin would go down well too but Julian Casablancas is standing in the way.

    No I just think they're a really bad, annoying band. Same as how I'd say Catfish and the Bottlemen's music is all trash. Fuck sake. Huh we have my speculation every day.

    I'd largely put that down to them being an irrelevance now. The less rebooking of bands like that the better.

    The Killers' supposed good album literally has Mr Brightside on it. That's like claiming a Stereophonics album is good.

    Saw them in 2013 and Rock Werchter and it was they were dull as fuck.

    Even if you think The Strokes one have one good album, that's more than The Killers have. Room On Fire is better than any Killers albums n all. Nah that's not in question. What's in question is whether any of them are any good.

    2019 Headliners

    At least that's a set of headliners they belong in. Imagine putting The Killers alongside The Cure.

    Back on topic: The Strokes are headlining the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2019.

    I remember the Let Down thing but I'm sure you also said it was good. I'd check but it's on my old phone.
  22. Gucci Piggy

    2019 Headliners

    I can't wait for you to message me during it saying it's good then come back and claim it was rubbish on here like you did with Radiohead.

    See you down in the pit when Stroke blast out Juicey Juice. Fair enough then, that makes me a little more hopeful, didn't realise you were at that gig. In fact it may just have been @Mash011 who said they were shit at BST so I probably shouldn't have put any stock in that.

    But those Stormzy songs have a way wider reach than those Foals songs. The whole Capital FM demographic will know those Stormzy songs but not the Foals songs, and I'd wager most people who knows the Foals songs know rhe Stormzy songs, too, because everywhere that covers Foals will also cover Stormzy. Stormzy also has the celebrity aspect, which Foals don't. You're not gonna catch them on prime time chat shows talking about their political views or charity work.

    Do they actually? One of my mates who went to BST said it was good but he's obsessed with them and I knew he'd think it was amazing regardless. Have read from other people that it wasn't good.
