Yes.

Don't get me wrong, I like some of their songs eg: The Scientist, Clocks but the rest of the songs all begin to sound the same as each other plus they are depressing as... I'm just not as crazy about them as a lot of other people I know are, likewise I feel the same way about U2 Just find them boring!

Also hate how they blatently copied Kate Bush's genius Running Up That Hill for the chorus of Speed of Sound *grumble*

I'm sure their emergence coincides with a higher rate of suicide worldwide.

I couldn't agree more with that post Gemma!

I don't hate Coldplay at all, they've written some really excellent songs. I love Clocks and Yellow. But I don't think they're as good as the hype

And they really did rip off HRH Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill

Incidentally I've always thought U2 were massively overrated......... *sorry U2 fans!*

Yes, definitely over-rated. Their latest single (cant remember the title ) is the first one I've even vaguely liked and would consider gracing my ipod with. The rest of it is just too depressing and I really really really can't get into Chris Martin's voice.

I find they are underrated. I find they are pretty much without a doubt the best band I have ever heard. Also I don't get why people find them depressing. I find their music powerful, inspirational and uplifting.

they're absolutely overrated.
but it's nothing compared to the hype surrounding James "I sound like a 13-year-old" Blunt.

DEFINITELY. Almost as much as James Blunt.

Every album they've made, or are going to make, are just half arse attempts at A Rush Of Blood To The Head, really.

Yawn.

Women's tennis sucks.
