Members of The Script are "ordinary blokes"

Despite The Script's overwhelming popularity, they're not the sort of band to be seen hanging out at exclusive celebrity haunts or A-list parties. 

Guitarist Danny Sheehan explained to Bang Showbiz:

"We're ordinary blokes who don't want to hang around with a load of d***heads who think they are better than everyone else."

"So we go to pubs with real people and don't pretend to be anything we're not. I've watched bands say they're downing vodka onstage when it's just water. We'd rather be honest."

The band, who are currently on tour in Europe, also admit that they aren't ashamed to be considered within the pop music genre:

"We're happy to admit we make pop music because we know we do it really well."

Singer Danny O'Donohue also added:

"We hold the record for the longest-climbing single in any US chart. We stole it from Snow Patrol's 'Chasing Cars'."

"Mind you, I'm not sure 'slowest climber' is much of an accolade."
