Arcade Fire vs. U2|

(Dotmusic) -- Arcade Fire have accused U2, Oasis, and the Rolling Stones of being obsessed with taking over the world, calling it "a total crock of sh-t".
The Canadian indie heroes release their new album Neon Bible next month, but have insisted they will never force their music down people's throats.
Accusing his rock peers of "marketing the f--k" out of their music, Fire frontman Win Butler suggested the groups in question might as well be selling toasters.
He said: "It's not like we shun success, but at the same time we don't want to shove it down people's throats. In the UK there's this kind of rock star competition. I don't know if U2 started it, or the Stones or Oasis, but a lot of bands think in terms of: 'I'm going to be the biggest band in the world. F--k all those bands who've got no ambition.' think that's a total crock of sh-t.
"There's nothing less interesting to me than the idea of marketing the f--k out of something so people are forced to like it. Some bands are just manipulating people to buy music. That's how 90 percent of the record industry works! It's basically the same as selling a f--king toaster or a cruise package," Butler told the U.K. music paper NME.
Neon Bible is released on March 6.
