RORY: You’ve done card tricks, you’ve made coffee, you’ve tried to explain to me how on earth Coldplay could be considered an alternative band, but as of yet, no studying.

Coldplay, British rock band formed in 1996, with vocalist and pianist Christ Martin, guitarist Johnny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman, and drummer Will Champion.

Their 2000 debut album Parachutes included their breakthrough hit “Yellow”, and it received a Brit Award for British Album of the Year and a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. This may be the source of Rory and Jess’ discussion as to how Coldplay can be considered an “alternative band”. In the US, their singles were played on college and alternative radio stations, and charted on the Alternative Music charts.
