    Are they actually gay or did you just say that because you thought it is funny and would offend them

    Ten Times more depressing and Angry

    Maiden are the most unoriginal and best proper old-skool rock of our times

    Each to their own and all that, but Funeral for a Friend are dire. They're also fairly popular I do believe, so no need to promote them or owt :p

    However bad they are though, Keane are insurmountably worse :yuck:

    haha, exactly! Keane are a disgrace.

    Why is being "gay" an insult? Thats really pathetic.

    Anyway...Funeral For a Friend were WAY better before they became all polished and radio friendlyish. Better when the vocals were more shouty and gritty, less pretty. Wasnt there some sort of line up change that affected their "sound"?

    iron maiden are gods who have been making good songs for almost 20 years

    dance of death is by no means that original but it is one hell of a good album
    and dont even get me started on bravenew world, one of their best albums blatantly

    my mate saw maiden wen ffaf were supporting, and all he made out was a lot of distorted guitar with no real tune and someone whining on top of it

    I remeber the days when gay meant homosexual - now it has been taken to the dogs by schoolboys with nothing better to do than brutalise the english language

    To be fair, before that it meant "cheery", "bright" etc etc.

    I agree with the sentiment though ;)
