I can’t believe that I almost missed this story! A woman was arrested on August 9, in Seattle, for attacking a man in for singing “Yellow” by Coldplay at Karaoke (Yahoo! News). According to the article, originally reported on NME.com:
‘A woman reportedly declared: “Oh no, not that song. I can’t stand that song!” She then leaped at the would-be singer, shouted expletives at him and told him his singing “sucked,” while expressing the same opinion of the song, according to a Seattle police report.’
This is good news for me. I’m not alone! I’m not the only person in the world that doesn’t like Cold Play. I wouldn’t go as far as punching somebody out over it, though. Since these guys broke I have taken lots of heat because I think that their songs are overrated and I just plain don’t like what they do. They make easy listening music for old people. They are the Pat Boone of “alternative” rock. And I don’t like what he does either.
