Why is everyone crying about the X-Factor? So they covered a song by Biffy Clyro, who cares? For all you know, the cover of this song introduced them to the original version, and then those people got into other awesome bands. 
I was playing this on the guitar the other day out in the back garden completely oblivious to the world around me. Next thing you know, I heard from my neighbour "Oh, someone's playing Matt Cardle". Oh how my blood boiled!!!! If I wasn't playing it, I would have gone crazy!
