This is a question Controversial Beliefs

Some mugs still think the MMR injection gives children autism (it doesn't), while others are of the belief that we're ruled by billionaire lizard people. Tell us about views outside the mainstream which people go glassy eyed if you bang on about them (Your grandad's a racist - no need to tell us, thanks)

I still think Carter USM are an amazing band

I've had this argument with my missus many times. They were not good. They were EMF without the physical presence and charm. And Ned's were even worse.

The cool kids were listening to Roxette.

After listening to Ned's at the weekend,
I'm convinced that they only ever recorded one track, then made a career out of releasing it under a variety of titles.

Carter USM >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> EMF
Way better lyrics, tunes, insightful anger.

EMF were like the McDonald's of 90s indie dance music.

I saw Jesus Jones at Christmas and they were way better than I thought they'd be

Ah, but EMF got swearing onto the radio at prime time.
EMF's Unbelievable was (and still is) one of the only songs to get prime time play with uncensored swearing -- that's got to be worth something.

Apparently, some people never get past "THIS IS BRILLIANT! IT'S GOT SWEARS IN IT!"

Oh do fuck off.
If you don't find it amusing that even when the slightest profanity is censored a song with a chorus of "What the fuck was that?!" gets airplay you're clearly up your own arse.

The joke may have worn a little thin over the last [I don't want to think how many] years.
I find it amusing that profanity is censored from anything on the radio, given that radio has no watershed (particularly when rap records are butchered beyond coherence). I also enjoyed the fuss that was made when someone said "fucking" during an episode of The Moral Maze.

"Due to the amount of air time that "Unbelievable" has received since its release, it may be responsible for the most profanity ever heard over radio. The constant background vocal during the chorus saying "What the fuck was that?" which even appears in the lyrics in the CD booklet, was never edited. This is possibly because the background vocal appears incoherently, and most people dismiss it as undecipherable lyrics. The song has also been used unedited in pre-watershed television adverts."

Precisely this ^^
Nothing to do with "Oh, it's got swears, teeheeehee". It's amusing because otherwise sanitised media like adverts use it.

Sorry, but no...
That accolade belongs to John Lennon for Hey Jude.

"awwwwwww.........fookin'ell!" halfway through the last verse before the "na-na-na-naaas"

A few more airings than EMfuckingF, I'll wager.

*edit* right after 'let her under your skin' in fact, around the 2'55 mark

Me, I'm not... is right
There's a bit repeated the whole way through that sounds like 'what the funk' but it's actually 'what the fuck'

(, Tue 30 Apr 2013, 13:04, closed)
It sounded like funk because it was. Which is also why it isn't censored.

OK, I'll bite
Carter USM were fan-bloody-tastic live. Even better before they had a couple of hits and the idiots started to turn up for a fight rather than a mosh.

Perhaps their ideas ran out towards the end but while they were good, they were very very good.
