This is a question Worst Band Ever

If I was in charge of the B3ta fatwa department, we wouldn't be hearing too much from Simply Red in the future. Who's on your musical shit list and why?

Belle & Sebastian
I notice that no one has yet mentioned this collective of pretentious twattery, yet. So I'd like to be the first.

Logically then, I think they're a bunch of twats. And in similar vein as a few other posts, they've proved the "inspiration" for countless other ball-less rock bands, often gimping on about how their shoes have made the words in their favourite Salinger novel look odd, or how they got picked on once in primary 4 for having wet themselves in gym, or some such shite.

A "good" Glasgow band apparently, they've certainly fecked it up for anyone else from up here.

However, I do like how the lead singer/writer has now seen fit to include numerous references to his omnipotent fictional figure of choice in recent output, which at least gives me some justification for requesting my wife to not try and brainwash my son into the cardigan wearing scenesters that amount ot their fan base.

Additionally, they're my wife's favourite band. My least favourite. This has perhaps unsurprisingly led to a few tortuous gigs I've "had" to attend. And resulting arguments. Hey ho.

At least I don't need to go anymore...

I often
dream about going on an axe rampage at a Belle and Sebastian gig.

I used to know a lad who was a Belle and Sebastian fan.
He was a sullen, fluffy-haired "arty" manchild who was allergic to anything vaguely interesting. Also, he had Eric Morecambe glasses that made him look like a prick. When I finally got round to listening to B & S they were exactly the way I'd imagined.

He was a big fan of MGMT too. I used to wind him up by persistently calling them MDMF (a hybrid of ecstasy and medium-density fibreboard), or saying stuff like "MGMT. They're the ones who say 'chiddy bang' aren't they?"

Maybe I'm just being judgemental, I thought.
Just because every single Belle & Sebastian fan I've met has been an absolute and utter cockend that I'd like to bludgeon with a hammer and just because their name is so insufferably twee it makes me want to vomit rainbows of bile, it doesn't mean their music is necessarily shite. I'll give it a try.

I was wrong. Can someone build a time machine, go back and, you know, just kill them?
