I've heard one song (the video), and I think they're pretty cool, even though they're kinda making fun of the 80s heavy metal genre. They're very melodical and I like the singer's voice.

To be fair though 70 + 80's metal really does need making fun of!!!

they're doing really well over in the UK, and I think it's cool they're bringing soloing into the mainstream

I think they're a bit rubbish, really. Another fad band.

Yeah, I have to be honest.....they suck. I don't get what the hype is about, and I'm sorry to inform you that no, they're not making fun of 70's/80's hair metal........their manager told them that popular music fashion dictated that it'd be a good idea to bring it back, or at least something similar.

also, dayem, they are UGLY! and how random are their videos?

That's right, there nothing big, just another regular rock/slock band.

I think they're the only new band (i.e, zakk wylde doesn't count) in radio for the past 4 or 5 years that could actually play guitar

I agree with shader. I love them and I think they are going to bring classic rock, and guitar soloing back to the surface. Because it was never really gone. :)
