i'm afraid this is just a tabloid trying to get a bit of scandal going, and talk of any rivalry between us and the darkness is just utter bollocks so i suggest you guys ignore it. they're one of the most entertaining bands to emerge for years, and their current popularity is a testament to that. and anything that gets people out to see gigs is good news. we also have a lot of respect and sympathy for the band because, like us, they had to spend years and years working and waiting before anyone paid them any attention. however i think it's pretty apparent that we're into completely different styles of music from them (apart from, is suspect, a shared love of early queen!), and so it's hardly suprising that tom should say that those songs don't move him as much as some other music does. anyone who says they adore every single band out there is blatantly lying. and as for the future, it goes without saying that any band has to develop and change if they're going to stay relevant and keep suprising people....and at the moment the darkness' appeal is so rooted in a particular style that it's hard to guess where they'll go next. but it was hard to guess how u2 would develop after the joshua tree, and they came back with achtung baby. and personally i hope for the sake of the music scene as a whole that the darkness do stick around, because we need bands like that just as much we need keane or dr dre or norah jones or slipknot or aphex twin. it's a shame some people struggle to appreciate the grey areas between loving a band and hating them, but i guess that sort of possessiveness and agression has long been a part of music fandom. frankly i think there's enough aggression in the world just now without bands (and their fans) turning on each other. and, as we've said in many interviews, we're very proud of the fact that keane fans don't subscribe to that attitude. anyway that's what i think, and as far as we as a band are concerned that's the end of it. love from tim

Oh sh*t, well I'm stuck in both worlds aren't I, not only am I avid fan of Keane, I'm also a fan of The Darkness.

But I'm not like for example, Oh my God, Tom hates The Darkness, I love them but now that Tom hates them I must start hating them too, if you get my drift.

Everyone has their own unique taste and I know I have mine.

I really don't anyone here will have a go at you because you like The Darkness - unless you go round posting that The Darkness are awesome and Keane are s**t! The only reason I called the author of this thread a monkey was due to the tone of his post, not because of who he likes to listen to (she?).

Ok, I have only just found this thread!
First of all, Tim is right. The Darkness are good for the music world and itís obvious that this tabloid pullout are trying to create a bit of gossip.

I must say, I do have a bit of a bother with Justin Hawkins. It just seems to me that he plays himself to be very up himself and arrogant, purely for the cameras. He was on Radio 2 a couple of days ago doing an interview and there was none of the cockiness that he seems to have when interviewed by the likes of the NME etc. Like when they won a couple at the Brits... he said something along the lines of "we deserve it", with no sort of thanks and its things like this that give the Darkness their "novelty" status! Like itís all a joke or part of the act!

Like others have said, itís personal choice and taste. No one has the right to judge whatís good or bad.
