Dire 'Queen' tribute band consisting of a few shrewd businessmen who realised they could fleece stupid little rocker-wannabe children out of their hard earned pennies by dressing like retro twats and generally being nothing more than fucked-up Queen clones, masquerading as something 'different'. Pfft.

A bunch of Queen wannabees (who I have got absolutely nothing against) with a bunch of annoying fans who dosen't know the definition of selling out and have the absolute nerve of comparing the band themselves with teenyboppers who were meant for children, forgetting that was the kind of music they would have listened to at their age. They also complain about the lack of quality of music now even they are 20 years old and had being listening to Take That, Backstreet Boys, East 17, Peter Andre 10 years before
The Darkness fans, aren't they a bunch of pretentious t**ts, don't they need a good punch in the face?

sell-outs with a vocalist/guitarist that thinks he's all that. everyone says he's brilliant but if you want a real guitarist listen to John Petrucci or a proper musician you sad wannabe moshers have probably never even heard of.
To the Darkness : Who the fuck do you think you are? Rory Gallagher???
To the Darkness fans : What do you think Yngwie Malmsteen is? A breakfast cereal?

A queen tribute band that happens to play their own songs.

Music listeners who are young and/or fans of shitty music (pop/mainstream hip-hop/most current mainstream rock) tend to believe that the band and its spandex wearing, innuendo loving, high vocal ranged frontman are crazy and original.
Sorry kids, but that concept was pioneered by the likes of Roger Daltrey and Robert Plant, and perfected by Freddie Mercury.
And the difference between those 3 and Justin Hawkins is that they all have world class voices... and he does not. Not to mention the lyrics they sang were much more deep and meaningful.

Oh yea, and all 3 of their bands (The Who, Led Zeppelin, and Queen, respectively) had bassists, drummers and guitarists far superior to those of this band.
Go listen to some real classic rock... none of this revival crap
