Both of these modern rock bands are often cited as drawing heavily from their influences (or in the case of GVF, their seemingly singular influence). Which brand of possible copy-catism do you prefer?

Not sure I know any The Struts’ songs...but a vote for them is a vote against GVF. So, yeah like that

I can't really vote as I have never heard anything by The Struts. I'm not overly fond of GVF ..... I prefer to listen to the real thing not a tribute band!

The hate for GVF is ridiculous. They are a wonderful young band with so many wonderful songs.

And so many people who whine about a lack of originality I also see fawning over really unoriginal fare.

Young band, hearts in the right places, a love for classic rock of various eras, and they write and play their own material. Is it envy that they found an audience whilst your personal bland faves have not?

They are wonderful. And I think they sound like a mixture of Yes, Led Zeppelin and early nineties alt rock.

Looooove them.

Well, I personally don’t remember saying that they lack originality. I only dislike the singer‘s voice. Hate, really. Sure, he’s trying to emulate Plant and that’s fine but it annoys me to where I can’t even focus on any decent elements the band actually has.

What’s ridiculous about hating someone’s voice? I’m sure everyone hates a vocalist or two out there.

I actually have heard this one. I just didn’t know it was The Struts.



It does nothing for me but I don’t particularly dislike it either.

I guess it comes down to your preference for the Robert Plant poser band or the Freddie Mercury poser band.

I honestly hear a blend of Jon Anderson and Geddy Lee

A former flatmate/childhood friend told me about this band a year and a half ago. He mentioned Geddy too so I gave them a whirl. I probably listened to about 5-6 songs from them JUST because that former flatmate of mine who knew me well was so convinced that I’d like them. He was wrong + surprised by my dislike. Oh well.

I’m no fan of Poison’s Bret Michaels. But I think the pesky little GVF vocalist sings like his testicles are caught in a pair of pliers.
