Pretty sure his bitterness comes from being trapped in that shell

They've had some great songs though.
Looks like Brian May ate all the pies

Looking at that pic, I now get those forms now that have so many options when they ask for your gender....

He's been called Fat Bob for quite a while now. I'm not going to get on anyone for their looks.

I used to be a big fan of Roxette and Belinda Carlisle but I stopped listening to them in mid-90s. Roxette's main vocalist (Marie, RIP, a very talented woman who left us too early) and Belinda also hated the Boys. I don't know why pop-rock chicks (womanly jealousy?) do not like the Boys but this never stopped me from buying their albums at that time.

I think you mean that you couldn’t care less.

PSB are my favorite music artist ever, but The Cure also have some unbelievable songs such as: Just Like Heaven, Charlotte Sometimes, A Letter to Elise, Pictures of You, Plainsong, Lullaby. Undeniable brilliance.👍

Different musical universes so nothing to worry about.
Nowadays PSB get more musical credits for their current (past 80s) work than The Cure

Love them both but after 1992 The Cure ceased to be relevant IMO

The Cure had their big accolade period a few years ago. Unfortunately, failing to release any new music in the last 12 years, promising a new album over and over...hard to stay relevant at that point.

Apparently Catch by the Cure was inspired by Rocky 2, which led to a friendship between Robert Smith and Sylvester Stallone, which then led to the Cure writing the theme song for Judge Dredd.
There was even a plan for Smith to fight Rambo in an episode of South Park but it was never made, which is a great loss to world culture.
