Feb 9, 16, 02:17 PM #81Coldplay has well established themselves as fine musical ambassadors to the world, and have crafted some rousing uplifting, goose bumpy, and anthematic numbers throughout their career, and are seasoned artists that have tons of experience at playing to, and exciting large crowds.
Chris Martin is a decent vocalist, and a likable, even tempered, non-radical guy that knows how to behave himself with class, and this along with them consistently producing big selling albums has garnered the band millions of fans worldwide, making them a household name.
Like them or not, whenever an artist, or a band deservedly draws this much attention, you'll undoubtedly also hear from the haters, and in the case of Coldplay I suppose that their emotional uplifting brand of music is not manly enough for all of the serious rock n' rollers who require more all balls outness in their jams. To them it is somehow a bit too fluffy, and it would be emasculating if by chance they'd ever admit to liking a tune here and there.
Oh my, what would their buds think?
This reminds me of the days when Disco became popular, and while almost no one could resist to at least tap their foot to it, it became all too polarizing in a Rock against Disco kind of way that for those who were way too cool for it, it became a tough guy buzz thing to say that "Disco Sucks".
Certainly everyone has their taste in music, and there's no steadfast rule that everyone has to like Coldplay, but considering that it's become so trendy to be a Coldplay hater, this speaks volumes of how successful they are, and that they must be doing something right. They've certainly got your attention enough to hate them. There are tons of bands out there that you can love or hate, but how original are those who jump on the "Coldplay Sucks" bandwagon as a way to ensure to everyone else what a real man they are?
It's neither original, nor is it convincing.

Watched the first 10-15 seconds to see if I won my prop bet. I didn't, so I switched channels then. That being said, I'm not really a fan of Beyonce parading around a hate group/ hate group look-a-likes during the halftime show. Mainly because she has a large, impressionable, and generally dimwitted following who will somehow likely turn the black panthers into iconic figures. This might just be me, but the super bowl half time show is a time to celebrate the culmination of the NFL season, not to push your political agenda. Do that on your own time when you not getting paid to perform.

Music doesn't have to be manly or macho for me. I love Weezer, and they're not exactly macho.

It's a guy thing to say that Coldplay sucks. How often do you hear woman say it?

I heard it more from the women at our Super Bowl party, but that's cause all of the guys were in the corner, ripping our shirts off, pounding our chests, having a keg race and eating beef jerky.

My biggest beef with Coldplay is that they are just bland. Nothing about them wows me. I liked "Yellow," but I felt like they didn't do a whole lot to grow as an act after that. Kind the same reasons why I loathe Dave Matthews Band. He, and Coldplay, sound like cover acts of themselves.
