Known for limited lyrics such as, DO DO DO DE DA DA DA.
How misleading this is; they had a hard sound - often forgotten
Andy Summers writing some nasty b-sides and a few album tracks, dark connotations.
Stuart Copeland is one of the worlds greatest ever drummers, extra ordinary tightness.

Does anyone listen to The Police any more?
Here is a few of my favorite tracks...



Deathwish.
Miss gradenko.
Walking on the Moon.
We were born in the fifties.
When the world is running down.

Yeah, I do. They have the song Message in a Bottle on Giutar Hero 2. Man, that song's hard to play.

If someone can inform me as to why The Police is awesome, I shall give them nothing.  :mrgreen:

I'm so glad I listen to them. Sting is a damned good songwriter and a good bassist as well. Andy Summers has an interesting guitar style and Stewart Copeland has become one of my favorite drummers.

Good lord, these guys do not fail.

I am not a big Sting fan either...but I love The Police...its something about their sound that attracts me to them..."Every Breath You Take - The Classics" is a great album!!! I would definitely recommend...

My two all-time favorite songs are:
Wrapped Around My Finger<-my all-time favorite song! I can remember watching the video on VH1 when I was younger...Sting prancing around a room full of candles! Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRoUpDON0_0
Message in a Bottle-actually there's two versions of this...the original and "new classic rock mix"
