London, Jun 7 : Coldplay frontman Chris Martin says that his group has failed as a band because they have not fared well in the karaoke market yet.
Martin admits that he would like his songs to be a success in the sing along category too.
"I'm really determined there should be more Coldplay songs in karaoke bars," The Sun quoted him as saying.
"I've been into them and you open the lyrics book and there are a million Beatles songs.
"There's dozens of Abba, Culture Club or even Bucks Fizz, but Coldplay? There will be two or at best three. If we could just get eight in every bar worldwide I'd be happy. I would know we've made it.
"I think there are three karaoke possibilities on Viva La Vida. It surely has to be the ultimate measure of success," he added.
Martin also revealed that he is nowhere close to being able to perform a karaoke himself.
"I got up in a bar one night with my mate Tim Wheeler (from ASH) and we chose Bohemian Rhapsody. It was appalling," he added.
