Chris Martin is not a rock god, duh

Posted June 26th, 2008 by eric

I’m a little slow getting around to this, but I just re-read it and laughed the whole way through: Meathead over at Buddyhead rips Rolling Stone and Coldplay’s Chris Martin a new one. Easy targets, I realize, but they were both asking for it. For RS to call Chris Martin a rock god is more than a stretch, as Meathead so eloquently muses:

What?  Christ Almighty, just how far down has the bar been lowered that motherfucking Chris Martin, whose music can frequently be heard playing over the speakers at Bed Bath & Beyond, is considered a rock god?  Correct me if I’m wrong, but in order to even qualify as a rock god, don’t you have to actually rock first?  I’m pretty sure Kenny Loggins is further up the list than Chris Martin.  I can’t say with any real authority how many times the devil horns have been thrown at a Coldplay concert, but I’m going to make an educated guess here and put it at around zero.
