    In my opinion, a lot of the bands mentioned are clear refutes, plus The Who, The Verve, The Strokes, The Cure.. I could go on, I'm sure.

    Anyway, this is subjective, surely? I don't think you can generalise, regarding music taste.

    No i dont agree these bands are great:
    The saturdays & yes they play instruments i saw them play in Leeds yesterday
    Are we talking about the same group? The Saturdays I saw live (and that the others were talking about) are a girl group. :p:

    shame no one knows them.
    I assume you're not at university yet? You'll be pleased to hear that Deceptacon seems to get played all the time at certain university club nights.

    I'm fairly sure this is ridiculous. Lets check my iTunes.

    I like..
    The Arcade Fire (although the presence of 'the' in their name is contentious)
    The Avalanches
    The Cooper Temple Clause
    The Decemberists
    The Dismemberment Plan
    The Field
    The Fiery Furnaces
    The Knife
    The Magnetic Fields
    The Mars Volta
    The Microphones
    The National
    The New Pornographers
    The Olivia Tremor Control

    I think that's enough to convince me otherwise. This thread is pointless.

    Is this sort of along the lines of people saying any degree with 'studies' in the title is crap?

    Yet further proof that sweeping statements are never right.

    The Decemberists, The Hold Steady, The Flaming Lips, The National, The Shins, The Smiths, The Specials, The Beatles, The Clash, The Stone Roses, The White Stripes, etc. etc.

    Im going to agree, the magority of bands which have "the" prefix are pretty crap (with exception to the roots). Mostly the guitar bands, e.g. The paddingtons, the kooks, the fratellis, etc.. there must be literally hundreds of these bands around, all as equally bland and lame as each other.
