Why would Kasabian feel the need to insult other artists, bands and soloists? If they feel Emo is influencing teens to become depressed, I think they are wrong. This is because people of any age,sex,race and/or so on....will gravitate towards music and topics that interest them and music they can relate towards and with....music is the universal expression of many emotions, feelings and events...etc, etc and so forth....and to deny that there is sadness, heartache, disaster and pain in our world and lives would be non-human. The irony that they are being extremely negative in criticizing other performers-- who obviously have a large fan base-- shows that Kasabian has what I consider the unappealing many-eyed monster of jealousy, lacking respect and professionalism. Sure, even the 'hating method' used in the media helps to involve Kasabian in being promoted and they may find some of the public may not enjoy the artists whom they slam, but this is setting the example of what appears a 'poor sport' or in this case, a poor example for a group of musicians --who are most likely intimidated by the popularity, success, talents and gifts of other dedicated, hard working music creators-- those diverse in genre and styles who honestly give more than 100% to their fans. I hope they mature, admit their comment is harsh, biased and see the entire picture by realizing that it is possible to not enjoy listening to other people's music, voices and songs without insulting them personally and appreciate instead the intensely hard work that went into the creative process. The kind positive thing would be to apologize to everyone they insulted and show some maturity and class. Hopefully, this is a rumor and not truely what they believe and if not then they may continue with their evidentially bloated egos and irrate irrational and superficial ideals that claim others have no right to be shown the respect they deserve especially in such a difficult industry as the music one.

I live in Denver, Colorado. I've never heard of Kasabian. Having read what they said about the Rolling Stones, I don't think I want to. They couldn't carry the RS jock strap. They ought to thank the RS every day for pioneering into Rock and Roll. I'll bet in 20 years the stations will still be playing RS music and not Kasabians.

They are quick to criticize other bands, well here's my opinion of Kasabian...You need to finish the signing lesson you obviously walked away from years ago. You dissed a band that long time ago set the tone for Rock-n-roll bands everywhere. Obviously you missed that part of the training.......
