Oh, and he's wrong about SY never having recorded a song in standard. Mildred Pierce is in standard.
What have Therapy? got to do with anything though? I've never seen anyone hate them and usually no one has heard of them... how many people have heard a band with a small moderate hit in the 90s and then just complete subterranean releases there after?

Anyway, it seems most of the hate for Placebo is people who only are familiar with their newer work (which is common among people my age, my girlfriend thought they had only been around for the past few years!) or are sick of them because their fanbase consists of 13 year old goth girls... but they are good!

Couldn't agree more, Molko's lyrics are absofuckinlutely retarded. That plus his voice is SO annoying.

I agree with the first 3-4 albums being good... but, wow, when I tried to listen to the more recent stuff (especially the last album with that WAY out of place new drummer)... ugh. Painful.

Now the music is as cringe-inducing as some of the lyrics...

Nothing, I guess. I've just been listening to them a lot recently and they came to mind. And I remember some time back I asked this board if anyone liked Therapy? and a lot of people said they were horrible...

Granted, this was around the time High Anxiety had come out...

If it's been on the radio more than a couple times a year after 1996, expect some hate from here.
