The Cure is the 56th xkcd comic.


The comic refers to the English alternative rock band The Cure and it's singer Robert Smith, and the English alternative rock band Coldplay, and it's hit single Clocks. The explanation of the joke is pretty obvious; when the lyrics of Clocks mention "the cure", this obviously doesn't refer to the rock band with that name.
