Hmmmm...whilst not a 'fan' of the Darkness they had utilised a formulae that had been successful before. They mixed 70's style Thin Lizzy riffs n hooks with Queen style vocals. It was familiar, yet silly. As Rocknut said..they invoked a Carry On style memory and it worked for them.

Not arguing over the 'talent' side of things but that said I'm not really a fan of Nightwish either. IMHO they are also 'silly' but in a totally different way. The video posturing especially is kind of embarassing and totally 'false. Their music is overblown for overblown's sake. I find alot of their stuff sounding very very similiar and it becomes tiresome very very quickly.

So in summary I dont like either band but would take a quick 3 minute hit of 'I believe in a thing called love' over any of the 'pretentious posturing' of Nightwish any day.But thats just me.
