People like their music because they changed their haircut.
Er, no I said that I warmed to them as a boyband because one of the guys looked a bit better IMO. And they've just released two good singles. For acts like them it's partly about the image they project.

You buy Olly Murs and One Direction, because it's rubbish, say no more. Why don't you just transfer the money directly to Cowell's bank account?

I don't hate them.

They are an inoffensive boy band. What's to hate?
People hate them because they believe they cannot sing, which they can, and that they have been very lucky.

The fans defend them when there is a hateful comment on any of their videos (or anywhere) along the lines of 'why bother watching their video' which I would agree with. But, the fandom (which is bound to die down soon) are not as good at debating when it comes to Twitter, especially death threats.

I don't think you are a little child. But if you don't realize who is a real musician and who is not it's too late for you.

It's not their best song but it's not their worst. The only issue is that it doesn't involve much group singing, but the vocals and harmonies are of a good standard. Bearing in mind it is a cover.

I don't hate them, I'm sure they're nice enough boys. I just don't get the appeal but I'm not a 10-15 year old straight girl. And there's no harm in those girls liking them, I liked Britney, 5ive, Justin Timberlake when I was younger, I also like(d) Sinatra, Elvis, Supremes, Queen Stereophonics etc.

They'll all grow tired of it and return to their lives with a fortune in the bank.

Are you implying it sounds bad because the original is bad?

I'm saying that it's not their best song because it's not their type of song.

Actually many Blondie fans would agree with this. It's not the vocals but the actual song that is lacking

Actually most Blondie fans wouldn't agree with that, and it's been a staple diet of there live set since it's inception.

Do people really need to ask why they are disliked? It's self-explanatory for any music fan.

Pointless thread.

Apparently One Direction are going to produce a 3D movie about them. One Direction in 2D is worse enough.

where are they going to find the other 2 dimensions?

apparently even their live shows are only in 1, so it makes no sense - the wonders of technology i guess

I agree it is indeed sick but putting it into context it is just a few out of many millions. Shame they get all the publicity tarring everyone with the same brush. But it really isn't anything new. Boy bands have always had a few insane obsessive fans. I worked with one many years ago and that was Paul McCartney fan from the Beatles. Just we didn't have social media for the whole world to see how badly they behave.

I do wish someone would tell their parents!!
