Revenge Recommends: "Bullet" by Grand Avenue

Bands like U2 and Coldplay are among the biggest on the planet. Denmark's Grand Avenue, founded in 2001, tick all the same boxes, but tick them a lot better – and they even sing in English – so it continues to surprise me that this band is not mega massive.

Maybe the problem is that the musical niche Grand Avenue is so well adapted to fill is already monopolized by U2, Coldplay, and others. Maybe Grand Avenue will only get the audience they deserve when all those U2 fans gradually realize that their heroes are over-the-hill. Hopefully by that time Grand Avenue will still be under-the-hill.

Bullet is one of the excellent tracks from their third album The Outside, released in 2007. Other great songs are Almost Gone, She, and Closer.
