Bono Big-ups Girls Aloud, Compares Them to U2, Kings of Leon, Coldplay

Some of you will probably credit this remark to Bono's "tendencies" the ones that made this photo possible, but the U2 frontman recently said of English girl-group Girls Aloud, that "[they] are at the cutting-edge of pop music. They are a great band and deserve to be center stage."


Bono continued, "We see ourselves as contemporaries of bands like Coldplay, Kings of Leon, Interpol and even Girls Aloud." That probably sounds pretty ridiculous to some of you, but considering that I know two Girls Aloud songs; the one that they performed at the Brits and the one in Love Actually, and I can still remember what they sounded like five minutes after the first listen, I'll say they're doing better than Kings of Leon at least.

A lot of my friends in the UK are coming out as Girls Aloud fans, I'm beginning to think I should check them out....

Boo-urns at all the Kings Of Leon hate from the Prefix staff.

As a Prefix Staff Member, I liked the first Kings of Leon record, scraps of the 2nd and 3rd, but found the new one to be a turd. They got too big for their britches methinks.

My boyfriend, who normally has really good taste, is a Girls Aloud fan. But he also thinks it's okay to refer to Kylie Minogue as just "Kylie," so, you know, grain of salt.

Girls Aloud is one of the greatest singles artists of the decade. There, I said it.

Is this the comment thread where the Prefix staff seriously contemplate the artistic merit of Girls Aloud?
