I don't. One of my cousins likes them and hates Queen.

I love The Darkness. I wanted to see them in concert when they were here about a year ago, but I never got the chance. Anybody know when their next album is coming out?

Don't know, but since they've already ripped-off Queen's glam rock era, I guess on the next one they'll be ripping-off their pop/rock synths era.

I think they're a good tribute band, but it takes quite a lot of talent to come up with an original sound that you can call your own, but The Darkness doesn't have that.

i dont think they were THAT big in Australia...well they might have been, but i wouldnt know. when it comes to this modern music, i wouldnt have a clue! but i like they're song "i believe in a thing called love"....i think its catchy. the pitch scares me, because i cant get that high, but oh well. and i like they're clothes. i like the bass player (justins hot!), he reminds me of ben stiller in happy gilmor. oh good times... and the drummers quite cute and i wouldnt say no to him!!! (then again, who would i say no to?)

Speaking for the older generation, I hadn't heard of The Darkness until I came across "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" on one of the PlayStation Sing Star discs.

I have to say that the lead singer's vocal range is impressive - how he gets to those top register notes without busting a valve I don't have a clue! But the song in itself I thought was quite good - I also liked the backing harmonies. Something quite original (see my recent post on what I think of most modern "artists")

I dont believe some of you people! I mean most of you say you like em, good on you, their GREAT! But some of you saying "their ripping of Queen..." and "they dont have their own sound...", FUCK OFF!

Of course they have their own sound. You know your listening to a Darkness track as soon as you hear it (then Justin's high pitch voice confirms that!). They were definatly influenced by Queen and other Glam Rock bands, but to try and bring back that era doesnt necessarily mean they're 'ripping it off'! Obviously there are some people here who don't appreciate rock!

Not saying everyone must like The Darkness, but i just hate people who say "their ripping of Queen..." and "they dont have their own sound..."!

Saw them live @ Werchter and they rocked the stage. His performance as frontman can be compared with Freddie. I Mean now way he's better but he has something that's a little similar (except from the outfits...). I think they're a great rockband and they bring colour to the stage. Which isn't a garantue these days as there are a lot if acts who just do thier songs and that's it. Something we, as Queen-fans, all hate I think...
Peace


Does anybody know what we are living for?

Thank you for your so kind words, I truly appreciate them.

I mean I'm sorry that The Darkness will most likely be nothing but just a one hit wonder. They were indeed a catch of breath for those who long for 70s and 80s nostalgia, but unless they truly proove to be original they will most likely fade away. I mean Queen was heavily influenced by Hendrix, but they sound nothing like him.

However don't take it as if I totally hate The Darkness, because there's still something very nice I have to say about them... they're a lot better than Ashlee Simpson.

Next time, cool it down just a bit my sweet fella.

Your dearest friend, Mr Jingles79.
