Silverchair in Internet Chat

By Bryce Corbett (Sydney Daily Telegraph)

They may well be Australia's youngest pop millionaires but it's done nothing to endear Silverchair to their critics.

With the launch of their new album just around the corner, the lads from silverchair have been hitting the promotion trail all week.

On Monday they assented to an Internet chat with their many fans -- organised by their record company Murmur and Red music channel.

Upon hitting the net, the boys were assaulted with a barrage of insults from nasty Net users, some of whom had waited for up to three hours on the website to hurl abuse.

Using the type of colourful language Thirteen would never dare repeat, silverchair replied in kind, proving they are really getting used to stardom.
