They actually got famous by ripping off queen riffs and solos like one vision and the solo from somebody to love,i dont understand how roger and brian can show these nontalented thieves any respect. They are just a shitty cover band.
Nothing new- look at Oasis- bloody Beatles cover band...
nah- it's ridiculous- there's more AC/DC in Darkness than Queen... And personally I think "Get Your Hands Off My Woman, Motherfucker" is a great tune!
Maybe you should ask yourself why Roger and Brian have never thought those were ripped off Queen parts.
I'm no fan of the Dark lads and I like them only a teency bit. But I can at least recognise that they are themselves.
The Darkness rock all arses off!! (is dat een uitdrukking in English?)
They're really good and they are not copying Queen at all IMO. I like them and I'm very looking forward to their new album. I think they are a good new rock band for the future and they mix several styles, which is good.
And BTW, I can't find any riffs that have been stolen from Queen... Maybe the riff in I Believe In A Thing Called Love sounds a bit like One Vision.. a BIT.. but it's not stolen come on!
Haven’t we been though this before, just look at the recorded industry today everyone rips off everyone now. The Darkness are influenced by bands like Queen, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy and Sabbath.
A lot of people on here need to get there hands out of the sand see there is a lot more bands around which are as good as Queen.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again... The only blatant Queen ripoff by the Darkness is Curse of the Tollund Man, aside from the occasion Queenish riff.
Blatant ripoff of AC/DC's Thunderstruck - Begining of Makin' Out
I still like 'em..even though I'm not ENTIRELY convinced the whole band is nothing but a joke..;-)
who gives a crap.
i like the darkness alot.
but do i rip apart every solo, saying it sounds like "this" or "that"?
and keep in mind,
the sound a like an early def leppard song, more than Queen ;)
they spent years trying to get to where they are. they spent hours of practice and giging so that they could get noticed. they used up alot of money to get the equipment they needed. hardly call them a joke band and just because justin wheres catsuits doesnt make the ENTIRE band a rip off of queen does it
