    Coldplay Singer Gets Coldcocked

    Cops nab Seattle woman after bizarre karaoke bar meltdown

    AUGUST 10--A Washington man's karaoke performance of a Coldplay song apparently triggered a female bar patron to attack him early yesterday at a Seattle bar. According to a Seattle Police Department report, a copy of which you can find below, Lindsey Lawrence, 21, assaulted the unnamed victim while he was performing with "two other subjects" at Changes Tavern, where patrons sing karaoke Wednesday and Thursday night from 9 PM until 1 AM. When the assault victim launched into Coldplay's "Yellow," Lawrence allegedly told the man that his "singing sucked" and that the song "fucking sucked." She then grabbed at the man's microphone and "pushed him and punched him in order to get him to stop singing," cops reported. When employees escorted Lawrence from the bar, she "became very violent" and struck several other people (and was hostile towards police and fire department medics who responded to the scene). Lawrence was booked into the Seattle Correctional Facility, where she is currently being held on an investigation of assault rap. It is unclear why Coldplay's music apparently made Lawrence snap, though a famous June 2005 New York Times appraisal by Jon Pareles may offer an insight. The critic called the British group "the most insufferable band of the decade," adding that, "the lyrics can make me wish I didn't understand English."

    I suppose simply leaving the karaoke bar when you don't feel like listening to crappy singing just wasn't an option here?

    Karaoke is just bad, it doesn't even matter what they try to sing.

    I don't get the appeal either. If I wanted to see people degrade themselves in the name of entertainment, i'd go to a titty bar or read the movie forum.

    I want that shirt. It's bad enough that Coldplay exist, without having tuneless imbeciles (other than Coldplay themselves, that is) groaning their songs out as well.

    It seems to me that if you don't want to listen to really horrible music, you shouldn't be in a karoke bar.

    I like Coldplay.

    I don't really get the hate for them. To each his own, I guess.

    Some people just like to hate certain things because it's "cool" to hate them. BTW, I've seen Coldplay in concert and they were outstanding.

    Personally I hate them because of the bland insipid drivel they try to pass off as music.

    Bit harsh, sounds like she's got more going on then just not liking Coldplay. While I understand not liking Coldplay, heck all their stuff sounds the same to me, laying into someone for it.......if it was Chris de Burgh maybe, but Coldplay just doesn't seem worth the effort.
