I'd go for 3 of those. The UI on u2.com leaves a bit to be desired. To be fair, however, I've yet to find a well-designed band site.

The last one will goto Bon Geldof, he is much more derserving for what he's done again this year.

I must say, Keane is an irritating simple stereotype band...

Sorry...

They have nothing done in the sense of new things or so, and their sound is way too simple.

Maybe they become a better band in the future.

Wow... I couldn't disagree more. Keane are the ONLY new band who have really impressed me in the last few years. Their album is stunning, genuinely perfect (and it's not often I can say that). I think their music is gorgeous on every level, unlike all the other new bands who all sound the same (bland and/or irritating). *shrug*

No accounting for taste! :p

How do you work that one out?

A band with no guitar. Not very stereotype if you ask me.
If you don't like the music thats fair enough, but I'm not so sure you can say that of Keane. You certainly could of Franz Ferdinand, Coldplay etc.

But I guess right now its very cool to bash keane ;P

I've never read NME myself, but judging from what I've heard about it, you really shouldn't worry about anything the magazine's writers have to say. XD;

I could be mistaken, but I think the nominees were actually selected by the general public. This makes me sad.

It also makes me wonder who in the hell nominated U2.com for best website, given all that's been happening lately!!

Well, the general public likes Britney Spears and Good Charlotte, so I wouldn't worry about what they have to say either. XD

Haha, maybe it was the scaplers who nominated U2.com. Or maybe Adam's brother. :X
