Kaiser Chiefs: We Flopped

The Kaiser Chiefs are reportedly to take a hiatus, while they rethink their next direction and to avoid being overexposed. An insider told the Daily Star that the decision came due to the disappointing chart placement of last single 'Good Days Bad Days' (it failed to enter the Top 100), and as a result no more songs will be released from third album 'Off With Their Heads'.

"There was huge excitement when the Kaisers and (Mark) Ronson confirmed they were working together," the source tells the newspaper."It was a dream pairing. But perhaps it came a little too quickly. For a long time you couldn't turn on your TV and radio or go to a festival without the Chiefs being in your face."

Hopefully their hiatus will spell the end for this band, good riddance! This just goes to show that the few years of dominance that indie music enjoyed are well and truly at an end. No longer will you turn on the radio to be drowned out by The Killers, The Kooks, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, The Feeling etc. because their genre is dead. Pop music has well and truly taken over again, if this were 2006 Lady Gaga wouldn't have had a hope of topping the charts with a songlike Just Dance.
