Isn’t it about time this tired old magazine called it a day?

Not Much Education

What kind of world is it, readers, when The Hoosiers – maybe the only decent band around at the moment – are voted Worst Band, Kylie Minogue – possibly the biggest trout around right now – is voted Sexiest Woman, Pete Doherty – the dirtiest, most unpleasant and most ridiculous man to record a record since Shane McGowan – gets Hero of the Year and both Mika and The Hoosiers are banned from attending?

The kind of world it is is NME world, where grown men wear teenagers’ jeans, Peaches Geldof, Kelly Osbourne and Kimberley Stewart (now that’s integrity!) are welcomed as a guests of honour, people not only put up with but give awards to the likes of Arctic Monkeys and where Amy Winehouse is ridiculed as the Worst Dressed woman in pop.

The magazine – down 12% year-on-year, btw, and still sending out journalists who brag they ‘don’t know nuffing’ (don’t be fooled by the accents; they all went to public school) about David Bowie, held its ‘let’s all be really naughty boys’ awards yesterday: sponsored by Shockwaves, by the way, the really cutting edge product from a major manufacturer to make your hair stand on end, you know, like the punks in the 70s. Sorry, we were forgetting, if you don’t know who David Bowie is you won’t know about punk.

Triumphant was Kate Nash (so she’s OK and Amy’s not – funny old world), The Enemy and Manic Street Preachers. And George Bush was Villain of the Year, so no marks for originality either.

Grow up people. And get a hair cut.

  1. Hear fucking hear! NME is populated by a bunch of losers who are trying so hard to be cool but just can’t get shags and suffer from halitosis.

  5. So Mika and The Hoosiers are banned, but they invite the vile spawn of celebrities?? Oh the irony. Just coz they wear dirty jeans they’re still trust-fund cunts, you know! NME is an embarrassment.

  7. Haha! They really have shown themselves to be the huge frauds that they are – and how out of touch they are with the world. On no, I forgot, being out of touch with the world is what makes them so cool. They’re out of touch with the people who are out of touch, which is really rather desperate. NME and their ilk really need to go to bed now. Good night, losers.
