    Has anybody else heard the band The Darkness? My God I had 80's metal flashbacks listening to these guys. Guitar solos, screaming vocals, and cheesy lyrics...I thought I had died and gone back to high school. I may pick up their latest album if I can find it used, which should prove difficult.

    I have, they are a UK act who are trying to take us back to a time when music was fun. They have build up a decent following here in the past three months. The debut album went No.1 and is selling well. They recently broke the Top 5 with their 3rd single. The UK tour has also sold out. I think these chaps are in it for the long run. [​IMG]

    Unfortunatly I have. I just can't stand the lead singer. Otherwise, they could be pretty good...

    The singer is what makes this band ... great stuff, but besides 2-3 real instant hit songs on the record, it is pretty filler.

    They do have a good buzz about them going though ...

    Can't quite figure out if they are a joke band or serious.

    I just picked this up today for 10 bucks at Target out of curiousity. I don't really know what I think about it yet. It's definitely different than most stuff out there today.

    I think this is the worst thing to hit the airwaves in 15 years. I listen to a hard rock station here in Hartford and whenever the Darkness comes on, it is the ONLY SONG that makes me turn the dial. Supposedly, the DJ's at the station say the Darkness is the most polarizing band they play...half the people love them, half cannot stand them...there is no in between. For me, I am in the latter group. I friggin hate them.

    I finally saw the video. Apparently, the guy is also trying to look like Freddy Mercury.

    As usual, when music tastes change, the music doesn't go away, it just goes underground.

    Check out melodicrock for better bands than the Darkness.

    At first, I couldn't stand these guys due to the lead singer (and horrible mental images of him from the video). However, I must admit they really grew on me. A buddy of mine picked it up before a 7-hour road trip, so we got a good listen to it. I think it's a really solid album and kicks much ass in an '80's kinda way![​IMG]
