Their video is entertaining, and I watched it so many times that I was beginning to fear that I liked the song, but then I heard it without the video and the song does indeed suck.

If you know who the Darkness are then you know which song I'm talking about.

The album, Permission to Land, is not crap. Though I haven't heard anything else from this band, I would venture to say I have not heard Justin Hawkins' equal as far as range and vocal manipulation are concerned. Maybe Jeff Buckley, but he doesn't rock nearly as hard.


The radio single is about the only piece of crap on the album.

Crappy crap crap crap. About 30 years too late to be original and 10 years too late to be retro. Crap.

I am truly at a loss for words to describe this band's astounding craptitude. The comparisons to 'vintage era Queen' are fucking insulting. I second, third, and fourth, what El Protoolio said.

I thought it was a joke. Spinal Tap Duex.
But one of those MTV jokes that aren't funny. (example: I still can't tell if the show "Extreme Dating" is a joke or not. I certainly laugh through the entire thing)

the darkness are an ironic joke... but the thing is they are so ironic that they have come full circle and are verging on taking themselves seriously... the thing is, once the joke wears off (and it's wearing thin already) we're gonna be left with a shitty cock rock outfit that do indeed suck - CRAPPITY CRAP

Ha ha! Guess what I say: NOT CRAP.

I saw an interview with them, and they are articulate and very specific about their goals with music. Their aim, supposedly, is to bring back the element of stupidity and fun into heavy metal. I think it is a brave and wise choice.

And it makes me laugh, and sometimes, it rocks.
But I digress. Please continue with the squirrel circuit semantic debate.

Haha, that's a worthy goal!

Haha, no, it actually isn't.

CRAP, though maybe it's due to a negative association. I was forced to listen to their whole record, too loud, in the backseat on a long drive while attempting to talk to a girl I was with on a blind date, who wasn't into me.

So, I was annoyed and uncomfortable anyway. But they kept reminding me of other bands that I'd rather be listening to, which is death for a band.

The music is so-so, but those vocals make me want to hurt someone. Personally, I never much liked this style of music when it WAS cool, and since this is just a hackneyed copy of something that's been done--been done--been done before, well...I don't feel like wasting more words: CRAP

A safe, watered-down version of Turbonegro. CRAP!

Like stupidity ever left heavy metal?

Crap. No, "KRAPP." If I could've shoehorned an umlaut in there, I would have.

I got obligated into going with a special lady friend to see them live the other day. It was utterly pathetic. From the singer's suicide-inducing voice, to the silk bandana wearing bass player's clapping-along at preconceived parts to catalyze crowd participation, to the finger-tapping (for christ's sake), I was watching the clock the entire time. Even when the singer encouraged a hefty lady in the balcony section to expose herself once more for all who'd missed her prior unveiling, and then called her fat, I was bored bored bored. However, I was impressed with the girl's burly sea-section (probably mis-spelled) scar. CRAAAAAAAAAP IN A BUTT!

Not crap.

I'm listening to 'Hazel Eyes' right now. On the National Day Of Slayer.
In your face!

They are totally stupid, but in this case stupid and crap are not the same thing. Both their albums, although ridiculously short, are great.
