People seem to hate her husband's Coldplay in the same way, which is odd because they're the Gwyneth Paltrow of music, really. Do they tour anymore? Nobody knows. Did they have an album this year? Meh. Dunno. They're famous and I liked a couple of their songs I can't remember the names of, but they haven't really been on my radar for some time.
They probably didn't think people in America would associate that song with Gary Glitter, mostly because most people over here don't know who he is. Joan Jett is famous for the song here in Americaland.
