    As ever, the entirety of Glastonbury has been absolutely woeful for me.

    Disagree entirely with the praise for Radiohead - best British band of the last 25 years?! Don't make me laugh - they personify bland and pretentiousness.

    It's the most overhyped festival in the UK calendar, and it's organised by a group of charlatans who peddle absolute lies to make their festival seem socially responsible, environmentally friendly and 'cutting edge'. It's none of those things.
    Radiohead "bland". Well I have heard it all now!!

    Does anyone actually like Ed Sheeran? I know he sells a lot of albums but it's the kind of music your Mum buys, plays it once on a Sunday morning then sticks it in a cupboard (or the digital equivalent) forever more. I don't get the fuss at all.
    I didn't see the Glastonbury set but he can put on a good performance for a boy using only an acoustic guitar and a few pedals. I have no issues with him being there but I'm not sure about headlining it.

    His songs are ok and I don't mind him being successful in the grand scheme of things, considering we have members of boy and girl bands worth tens of millions of pounds nowadays. None of whom can even string a guitar, never mind write a song.

    Interesting wee back story too (At my kids school, he was used as an example of someone who was bullied when they were in primary) and he's got to where he is through sheer determination.

    He's apparently a really nice guy too. Ach, there are worse things in the world than him :-)

    It's quite a typical Radiohead fan response that I've heard over the years. "You just don't get them".

    Perhaps that's the case, and I'm OK with that.

    I don't totally despise them (they're not U2) - I liked Kid A (who doesn't?), but a lot of their more 'innovative' or 'experimental' stuff is just awful.
    Okay, technically I'm a serial killer...

    Bizarre isn't it? The only song I really like is the one that's ripped off of Marvin Gaye.

    Sentiments, not sentences . . .

    You're intelligent.

    Millions of people enjoy Radiohead. Obviously therefore, their music isn't"awful".

    I know people who don't like seafood. They don't know what they're missing either.

    I can't be bothered with U2.

    Or Oasis.

    But Kid A is arguably their most experimental album....not a favourite of mine.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    I believe they call it 'easy listening'...
    He comes under the 'aye, he's no bad' banner for me but, like yersel, I really don't get his apparent universal appeal! In fairness though, he does come over as a decent bloke all the same and as someone else observed, at least he can play.

    Thinking he may have meant OK Computer.

    Astonishing that anyone could call them bland, to be honest.

    You can't argue the boys talented. His set last night was a hell of a spectacle.

    That's understandable.

    No effort required with Ed. Just let the hooks guide you.

    TBF, I quite like his stuff. It's throwaway, but it's inoffensive.

    You're correct with your first sentence

    Perhaps 'bland' is the wrong word to use - I just find a lot of their stuff to be lengthy, drawn out and slow. For reference, the stuff I listen to is usually a fair bit heavier than Radiohead, and it's been a while since I last listened to them in any real depth! Perhaps if I go back and listen to their older stuff now, they'll be a contender for the other thread in the Dug Out of 'bands you never used to get...'.

    Pretty much all music is **** now IMO, I grew up in the 90s which had a great music scene, now it's all a load of bollocks in my humble opinion

    Man in growing old and grumpy shocker


    I'd disagree that there's no good music now, 6 music for example is full of good tunes from new bands and artists.

    I agree music was better in the 90s though

    I left Radiohead after their fourth song (Airbag) and went to see The Flaming Lips.

    I do like Radiohead and I'm a bit sad I didn't see their whole set, but watching a band on the Pyramid Stage is generally a thoroughly unpleasant experience.

    Instead I went to see The Flaming Lips on The Park stage and it was my highlight of the weekend. What a performance - I've never seen a band take 90 minutes to play 12 songs.

    Also really enjoyed Future Islands and Metronomy. The Pretenders were a real surprise for me too. She hasn't lost her voice, unlike Debbie Harry who was in the same slot 3 years ago.

    Apart from that... worst lineup ever. Great weather though!
