My guess is that this won't last long in the spotlight, so enjoy this crap while you can....that's my advice to you if you're bound and determined to keep on championing this shat.
So the darkness isn't allowed to have influences?
What I meant by my post is that while they can be influenced by these bands, they are not some phony made-up band that is a rip-off of Queen. Same with my marketing thing that Ames took different, I meant that they aren't marketed to be the new Queen or Queen Jr.
About Jet, I meant that they are like Nickelback in the way that when I hear a song by either of them, it sticks with me but quickly gets old. There's bands out there that I can listen to over and over and over again do not tire of them, TOOL and Mudvayne being my 2 most probably. Maybe Jet is too soft for me or just not what I'm into musically, but I get tired of hearing their songs after a few times.
