The Final Straw breaks the camel's back of Snow Patrol's obscurity

"We've tried not to learn any of the rules of music. None of us are even in any way trained. We're all self-taught. We actually try and close our ears whenever anyone explains stuff to us. 'Well, it's in the chord of G, that song.' Is it? I didn't want to know that," He laughs. "I know I play G sometimes, and that makes sense, but I don't understand why."

Nor does he need to, given Snow Patrol's ascent.

Snow Patrol: "We've tried not to learn any of the rules of music."

"I suppose we should feel vindicated in a way, because we've been going for so long with so little interest…with only critical acclaim," McClelland says. "But we always really believed in it, and we were pigheaded and stubborn about it and kept going and didn't listen to any of the bad stuff people said about us. It's nice to not have to justify yourself anymore. Everything's been pretty crazy, the way it's taken off. We're just struggling to hold on, really. The bus has left, and thankfully, we're on it."
