this is an opportunity for everyone to flame the band they hate the most

not the wisest idea

Edit: The arctic monkey's haven't gone downhill at all, they've just gone to a different hill. with pretty flowers and squirrels and clouds all around it.

I used to think Rage against the machine, but when they played in 07 and 08 they were pretty spectacular.

The first indie band that comes to mind is Modest Mouse
I, however, don't think they've really gone "downhill"; I like their old stuff and the new, just as much
Their sound's changed but not for the worse or the better

actic monkeys HAVE gone down hill, but they're still very good, but alex turner has let himself go,

every indie band

your favourite bands are red hot chili peppers, guns 'n' roses and rage against the machine.

as much as i love the strokes, they've really gone downhill. hopefully their new album will be better. most of my facourite bans are still releasing great records though.

You mean those aren't indie bands?

If Oasis were still together I would say them.
And I would agree with the Arctic Monkeys

I dont think Arctic Monkeys have gone downhill just changed there sound a bit. Aiming towards a different audiance (sp?)
As for downhill, I'd say Kings Of Leon.
Does it offend you, yeah?

The killers have gone downhill. Alot. The old stuff is quite good, but the new stuff is un-listenable.

-My Chemical Romance this incredible onslaught of cathartic noise seven years ago. Now they sing "Welcome to the Black Parade".
-Fear Before the March of Flames made some really interesting, avant-garde, Blood Brothers-influenced post-hardcore. Now they sound no different from the rest of their scene.
-A long time ago, The Smashing Pumpkins were a well-concealed Billy Corgan ego-trip. Now they are a blatantly obvious Billy Corgan ego trip.
-In the '90s, Dinosaur Jr. wrote angry noise-pop worthy of mention alonside Sonic Youth. Now, they'd fit in fine at a blues-rock festival.
-The Jesus and Mary Chain once made utterly unique music. Then they came out with "Automatic".
-Blur was once a shoegazing act. Soon after, they joined all those other Britpop bastards in writing absolutely soulless garbage.
-Lush: see Blur.

and in the mid-to-late '80s, Dinosaur Jr. wrote even angrier, noisier punk/rock. then the '90s came.
meh, i still like them, though the new stuff's nothing special.

Not sure why I wrote '90s. My brain slipped for a moment. I was specifically thinking of "You're Living All Over Me".

Elliott Smith hasn't done anything decent since 2003.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I agree totally wilth toyboxmonster,
Fear before the march of flames used to be so great, the always open Mouth was a masterpiece. now they sound exactly like the rest of their scene.
they changed their name and their sound, now it sucks.

Kings of Leon

Arctic Monkeys have got progressively better imo, still not as good as everyone makes out but it's good to see them move away from their first album

Blur were shoegaze... when they were shoegaze?

During their "Leisure" days, they were grouped with bands like Lush and Slowdive as part of the Scene That Celebrates Itself. "Leisure" is very much a feedback-drenched, effect-tinged, pseudo-psychadelia record and fits right in with bands like Moose and Catherine Wheel.
