English singer Ricky Wilson is thrilled with the success his band the Kaiser Chiefs have enjoyed this year (05), because he felt they had a point to prove.

The I PREDICT A RIOT star is confident their string of hit records have shown the world they have finally transcended their art rock roots and ensured longevity.

He says, "I think we've proved ourselves as a proper rock band.

"We're not just an art rock band, or a gimmick band like The Darkness, we've proved to a lot of people that we're actually major contenders and going to be around for a long time."
