Now, I’m a fairly big Coldplay fan. Their older stuff was good, and even Viva la Vida got my attention for a little bit. However, they’ve become overhyped, and in the process, rediculously rich. As my friend puts it, their music is being affected by ‘the rich affect.’ Personally, I can’t wait to see the outcome of this trial, but not to see who wins; I want to see what will become of the loser.
Humorously enough, another band called ‘The Creaky Boards” claimed that Coldplay had copied “Viva la Vida” from them as well, but those charges have (as yet) to be carried out.
