THE SMITHS! Hate them with a passion. They make Leornard Cohen sound happy-clappy.

Ah, The Smiths. You either get them or you don't, and if you don't get them the first time you hear them you never will. Personally, I love their happy miserabilism, it's disco music for masochists.

I feel the same way; much like Radiohead, it's easy to label them as miserable - but if you actually listen to Morrisey's lyrics, his arch, kitchen sink writing style contains a fair amount of humour - albeit delivered with an arrogant sneer, which understandably pisses a lot of people off. For me, the greatest lyricist of his generation, if only for this line:

"If a double-decker bus crashes into us / To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die / And if a 10-ton truck kills the both of us / To die by your side, the pleasure, the privilege is mine.”

U2/Bono.I really don't understand how they are so successful. Average at best. Maybe Bonos hobby of collecting friends in high places has helped.

The Pet Shop Boys.
Morrissey- lite lyrics droned over a sub Giorgio Moroder electo track. Same old schtick over and over again since the mid 80s.
Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number--
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you--
Ye are many -- they are few.'

Percy Bysshe Shelley - 'The Mask of Anarchy'

'And when I get that feeling I watch
Broncos in Ealing'

Marvin Gaye - 'Sexual Ealing'
