What I find offensive about them (and many other bands) is their underestimation of their audience. They're trying to pass off gimmicky, recycled music as innovative and worthwhile, which dumbs down their collective audience. Their song titles alone make me vaguely nauseous, and there's a moment in a song I believe is called "Scummy" where the singer (whose name I've already forgotten) makes a point of enunciating "summat."
I mean, REALLY.
I'm probably being unfair and overly harsh, and most of the responsibility really lies with the imbeciles who are swallowing this afterbirth. But why, WHY are we being inundated with all of these shaggy-haired, cuffed-jeaned, unshaven, corduroy-sporting, indie-sucking bands?
Somebody make it stoppppppp
