A One Way Ticket To Hell ... And Back

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

What is rock’s greatest hoax? Milli Vanilli, those two Jamaican dudes who sang like a pair of vocal major white dudes, because that’s who actually recorded the vocal tracks? How about Spinal Tap, a heavy-metal parody started by British comedians that took on a life of its own after movie-goers were too stupid to recognize This is Spinal Tap was satire and not a real tour film? Or maybe Har Mar Superstar, that overweight, balding leprechaun, whose over-the-top R&B sex jams were so well-executed they fooled morons everywhere (including Har Mar himself) into thinking he’s the real deal?

THE DARKNESS frontman JUSTIN HAWKINS is still furious with U2 singer BONO for usurping his vocals on last year's (04) Band Aid single, insisting that his singing voice is stronger.

The I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE star claims Bono cut his contribution to DO THEY KNOW IT'S CHRISTMAS? and re-recorded it singing in a whisper, because he couldn't outdo Hawkins' powerful voice.

Quick Note...

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

...some slight confusion with the articles.

Some of the articles have a 'read more' link for full articles with credits. These articles have not been written by myself, but are actually on the web written by other journalists.

It it hasn't been credited on the 'read more' link it usually is a note from myself. I'd be mad to create a fan site dedicated to The Darkness and slag em off tongue

Pump up the pomp, flex that falsetto, and liniment those loins, because the Darkness are back. They're minus original bass player Frankie Poullain, who left over creative differences.

In New Zealand their debut, 2004's Permission To Land, caught on tentatively. Many asked themselves, "What is this bombastic, piss-take rock'n'roll bollocks?" at the sound of frontman Justin Hawkins' helium voice singing I Believe in A Thing Called Love. But it took hold here simply because songs like Growing On Me and Get Your Hands Off My Woman were hilarious.
