Most overrated rock bands ??

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by crazybassplyr, Apr 16, 2004.


  1. OK folks, no need to add "IMHO" here, this question is all about opinion.
    What rock bands (any sub-genre) do you think are the most overrated, add why if you want its no biggy.
    My picks are (in no particular order):
    Nirvana
    The Doors
    Oasis
    Metallica (the new stuff)
    Likin Park
    ....more to follow.......
     
  2. Guns 'n' Roses.....Jeez I hate that guys voice.

    Been done before. Accomplished nothing. Just got people angry at one another. People like what they like, if you don't like it, ignore them.

    Overrated threads are overrated.

    I love Zep. I do feel they excel in the studio though, and not necessarily live. Paige had trouble finding the right notes in several of the Zep shows I saw. There's other bands like that too (good in the studio but not live), the Stones come to mind, and the Chili Peppers.

    i know this thread is probably going to turn into a flame war, but i'll throw in my two cents before that happens.

    99% of any rock played on mainstream radio is overrated. I know it sounds trendy to say that, but I really can't stand listening to the same 3 songs recycled by 15 bands in a continuous rotation.

    These kinds of threads are as useless as the "Best" threads.
