Asking Americans to agree on something is like asking the weather to stay consistent: It’s not going to happen. Unless of course you’re asking about Coldplay because many Americans do not like the band. For many, Coldplay is basically what would happen if the world’s most punchable face became a band. They sucked in their home country of merry old England, and they especially suck now that they’re in America, depleting our greatest natural resource: Beyonce. To find out why Americans hate Coldplay, start scrolling through this list at the "Speed of Sound."
“Why do people hate Coldplay?” is a question often asked by the members of Coldplay (probably). “What did we ever do?” they inquire of one another. Luckily, this list answers that question about 12 times with all sorts of reasons why people think Coldplay is lame. No matter how hard this snooze of a band tries to be cool - whether they’re hanging out with Jay-Z, or aping the likes of much cooler boring bands like Radiohead and Animal Collective - Coldplay just can’t seem to make anyone like them.

It’s a Basic Band for Basic People
Coldplay is like Urban Outfitters, pumpkin spice lattes, and a $60 plain black t-shirt from American Apparel - BASIC! If the depths of your emotions can be summed up with the lyrics from a song like "The Scientist" then you might as well move to Florida and start drinking Bud Light.
They're Too Self Congratulatroy
The Lyrics Are ZZZ
You know what gets us pumped? Super duper rock 'n' roll lyrics like:
And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
Take a listen to the lyrics for "Viva La Vida." They sound like Chris Martin's high school English teacher asked him to write a poem about the Olympics.
