    I don't think Murdoc deserved to be saved, he's a horrible person, but if it weren't for him Gorillaz wouldn't even exist. So he's technically my favorite person..like, almost ever. When he retires, or probably even dies, I'm gonna cry, but I wouldn't think of it as a sad thing. Because Gorillaz is always gonna be Gorillaz. With or without the originals. We'll always remember the true guys that went through hell, stayed, went back out, and then had an affair with Satan until they cut connections off. And then it became a half stalker. Its just that my point is, Gorillaz is great, but they deserve better, and when they break up, they'll always be one of THE best bands that had ever existed.
