Kasabian, ‘One Direction Are Little Dicks’

Kasabian579


Kasabian’s Tom Meighan told NME that One Direction as ‘five little dicks': ‘It’s frustrating when you see five little dicks like that take over America, it’s horrific but you’ve just got to get on with it. They’re a boyband for God’s sake and there will always be room for boybands. They’re kids. Let them eat the candy.’

On his band trying to crack the US: ‘We went to America and it was a harsh fucking tour we did. We did nearly eight weeks out there and it was fucking gruelling. It was the hardest we’ve ever been pushed. We did well, we won the war on terror on that one. We’ve got to keep going back and back.’

    they can say what they want, it’s not like you ‘directioners’ read NME anyway. i’m not denying they’re a bit jealous of ‘1D’ because naturally you would be if you were in their situation. ‘1D’ play on their young, female fanbase and their music is, in my opinion, ok if you’re under the age of 16. this, i think, is what tom’s implying. they’re using their female fanbase to become relevant and popular in the US. unlike kasabian who release a different sound practically every album, their music evolves as they do and their fans like them because they make great music, not because they’re good looking.

    That’s an unfortunate reality. Some girls will buy an album to listen to their faces. I don’t deny that either I just don’t think it’s cool to insult the band for a reality they have no control over.

    Um actually I did. I thought it was rude and hateful. Don’t put us all in the same box. Directioners are individuals as well. If it’s any consolation I think Kasabian IS talented. I don’t ONLY listen just pop, you know.

    and with regards to an earlier comment Kasabian played at Coachella just gone, have one direction played Coachella? No?
    seeing as though i’m indie therefore i automatically am full of myself i’ll go listen to some real music now, ciao!

    KASABIAN ROCK
    ONE DIRECTION SUCK
    X FACTOR REJECTS
    THAT DIDN’T EVEN WIN

  • sheldor

    1D are shiiiiiite. it’s 12 year olds like you lot who makes them popular and relevant. they’re barely even on the radio in england anymore, and seem to focus on america which goes to show they’ve forgotten their roots and are becoming sell outs. their music’s crap anyway so i’m not complaining.

  • anony

    kasbain isn’t as hot or talented as liam pain anyway. he’s just well jel of their success because he didn’t get past the audition round of xfactor. :(

    Tbh their music is no more than average so most of their fans are blindly fans because of their looks. And if they are truly fans of their music then they have 0 music taste.

  • SubwayToVenus

    Kasabian is awesome though and they will bash ANYONE not just 1D. they’re against mainstream pop music, it’s not something personal. However, I think it’s rude to call them little dicks, but, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Indie. They are not mainstream, but they have many fans and are actually respected for their lack of promotion, etc.

    I like indie music I just can’t stand the attitude of some of the bands and fans. “Whoo I’m a REAL artist unlike those MAINSTREAM bands cuz no one know who I am!” Fuck off! They ALL know they would LOVE it if more people to heard their music. Don’t need to bash things that are popular.

    I know, they’re posers.
    I don’t get why they put themselves in that stupid position.

    kasabian aren’t one person THEY’RE A BAND.
    and in the uk, particularly england they’re more well-known and have a better, more loyal fanbase than one direction. so before you all start bashing them do a little research. tom was talking to NME magazine, who cater for an indie/alternative audience, so it’s quite right he’d tell his opinion on one direction to them. i understand where tom’s coming from, bands like arctic monkeys and kasabian who have worked so hard to put together a band and make it in the charts are hardly getting a look in in america, whereas one direction who went on a talent show, were put together by the talent show because they couldnt make it solo and don’t write their own songs suddenly blow up. it’s wrong.

    Then their qualm is with the industry NOT 1D. They should have said industry is full of a “bunch of little dicks”. It isn’t 1D’s fault they are successful. They’re just enjoying the ride for as long as it lasts.

    Well, I respect his opinion, but he shouldn’t be rude. He could simply say `One Direction isn’t that good enough for me.` We can accept that because obviously, not everyone likes them. But yeah, I guess he’s really mean, so what can we do? x

    I don’t see what the problem is.. if you like 1D, wich I do, then fine, go listen to them and if you don’t, then don’t listen and ignore them.. it’s really stupid insulting a person or a grouo of people out of their music taste xoxo

    Oh Kasabian I love you guys and mostly your music, but please don’t say shit about other bands. You don’t even know them and if your are tired of this ‘faces’ on the radio so say shit about the fucking industry okay? I don’t think this is 1D fault, they’re just teenagers with no sense of music trying to win some money with a shot that someone gave to them. So to be more specific: say shit about Simon, he made that boys. And people just love them because their fans are young. Normally 12 years girls don’t know what is real music. To the kids that are reading this: listen to Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes (most popular indie band), The Fratellis and The Vaccines, is good for you guys :D One day you’ll all thank me…

    And I don’t have anything against 1D ok? When I was a little bit younger I also had my 1D :) (Jonas, cof cof)

    That’s pretty obvious, duh. Jonas Brothers are actually a band, not just a boy band, they write their songs, play instruments, their music is pretty good too or otherwise Paul McCartney & Obama wouldn’t be fans.

    yeah you don’t have to like their music and you may have worked hard for your music but don’t go off name-calling it makes you sound like a bitter prick tbh
    having an attitude like that won’t let him and his band go further…

    its really weird no one knows who kasabian is…..
    and theyre not called ‘The Kasabian’ or ‘kasabians’

    good music is forever lost.

    Everyone has their own opinion, he might have portrayed his brashly, nonetheless it is his opinion. Just as you are all brashly expressing your opinion about him.

    “we won the war on terror on that one”
    is this guy serious? that’s the rudest statement ever. GEE no fucking wonder why he and his band never took off in america. sorry i’m not sorry for being sensitive over the war on terror, but i don’t really just get over people intentionally blowing up 3 buildings with intent on 1 more.

    1D guys had never said anything to anyone, they have always treated people with respect and they just like to do their music and mind treir own bussiness.. been jealous for the seccess of someone’s career does not give that person the rights to be rude or to say mean things.

    Why are you guys flipping out? He’s allowed to have his opinion! Not everyone is going to love One Direction! Even if you think everybody should!! So, get over it, and stop bashing people just cause they dont like them! I have no idea who Kasabian’s are either, but i wont bash him for having his own opinion

  • Viva La Vida

    I don’t like 1D either, I don’t see what people think it’s so special about them. In fact, I think that half of their fans are fans because of their “looks” (I don’t find them attractive, either). But that was so out of line to say. 1D has never done anything to Kasbain or whatever its name is.

    But HE is BASHING THEM by calling them little dicks….. so….

    He was not that rude, but he was a little bit.

    Kasabian is bitter and jealous. I could respect if he said he didn’t like their music, but the name calling ish is ridiculous. Yes, they are more popular than you, get on with your life. This story is hella old, btw, but whatevs.
