Most overrated band ever ?? ... Discuss .....
Oh, Bobbo you thread starter
OK, Flame suit on,.....Uh, how can I say this , Uh Led Zeppelin. There, I've done made my grave. I blame alcohol and drugs. I don't do them and they did How else can you explain Moby Dick live...
Oh wait, maybe I can save myself here.
The Grateful Dead.
Just like Zep, I don't get it, but with the Dead, I REALLY don't get it.
Zep I can see where they are coming from even if I don't always like the results. They did some good stuff, but not enough in my opinion to garner all the praise and hype.
Anyway, Flame me , I can take it
Somebody has to start these wacky threads ehh?? .... I think Elvis is the most overrated performer of all time !!! He was a white guy who stole the black man's blues and made a fortune doing it !! While all the black blues guys he ripped off went starving !! ... White America couldn't accept the blues from the people who started it namely the blacks ! They had to have a big dumb white guy sell it to the country !!
Yup! You said it. The King was is overrated. Still, he brought music out of ethnic obscurity to the white masses. He filled a niche and was a product of his time.
Anyone with the moniker "king" should be squinted at, Like Michael Jackson, "King of Pop" crap.
Not Freddie king, or Albert King, etc, They are cool!
Hey, Viva Viagra is playing on the TV right now. THAT is the Elvis Legacy, his song shilling erection meds! What a world
I was never a Dead Head, and I didnt get the actual drawl to them either ,Jerry Garcia might have been a very articulate player, but he didnt in any way drive or inspire with any kinda wicked or sweet tone solos at the time they were big, they seemed sorta too countryfied electric folk with a dash of space
I like some of the vibe of the Dead, but I'm not a fan.
I never got the Nirvana thing... at the time anyway. Looking back I can see what went on there, and why it was so important, but at the time it just pissed me off.
I remember it very clearly. 1 day everyone was wearing neon colors, had hairspray and pointy guitars, and the next? BAM! like without any warning.. everybody was acting all depressed, with their hair hanging in their faces, wearing plaid, complaining about how guitar solos were overrated and that being an anti-rockstar was way cooler, even if you actually were a rockstar.
Thank GOD i still had GnR, ACDC and Metallica to get me through those trying times!!
Most overrated band currently? Fall Out Boy. I don't think anybody else on the radio annoys me more right now. Its just so mediocre. Doesn't anybody see it?
Hands down its the Greatful Dead
i just dont get it
+1 For Nirvanna , never got them either
A guy that sucks the barrel of a 12 gauge and leaves his
kid without a dad, makes him a zero in my book
O Come All Ye Grateful Dead Heads | Holiday | Funny Videos, Pictures and Jokes at JibJab Ya gotta HEAR This one !
Come on, there was some good stuff from that era too. Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Jane's Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers were still pretty rockin'!
For overrated band I'm going to say U2.
weird to think that both hiippies and bikers love those guys???
makes no sense.......tone deaf
oh man, dont put those great bands in the same catagory
yea U2....thier guitarist drives me nuts
Aye For U2, Bono and all his freakin causes , along with him I gotta add Bruce Springsteen
Oh fuck yeah!
Cant play their instruments and
reminds me of Hillsong
Pearl Jam is a bit that way, as well.
the singer of Pearl Jam cracks me up hahha
Adam Sandlar used to do a great impression of him
I'm glad you guys say U2 ,I've always wondered what all the fuss was about.
Thought it was just me missing somethin'.
Ole SingleCut. you are not missin anything, brother, Being ALL Irish by blood, I think U2, and Sinead O'Connor are two of Irelands musical disgraces
Oh definately! STP, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden... Those are 3 of my favorite bands. I just felt so oversaturated with Nirvana EVERYTHING... There were even kids in my high school who killed themselves after Kurt did.
I'm not a U2 fan at all either. I think its just Bono and his attitude that puts me off. He actually sat in on the G8 conference with world leaders and preached to them... HE'S A FUCKING ROCK SINGER... Not the Dali Lama. He's got some good things to say, but who he is and what he does doesn't lend credibility to his message.
Another overrated performer... Ozzy. I love the guy, but his stuff always felt a little cheezy to me. Musically, brilliant guitar work. Lyrically... ouch.
I don't mind some Pearl Jam songs, and I heard a new track off that movie soundtrack Eddie Vedder did, and I enjoyed it... but I won't go buy the album. Just not a fan.
Somebody who is extremely underrated though... Ray Lamontagne. That guy puts soul into everything he does.
Overrated... RHCP is a bit overrated. Good band, but when those guys talk in interviews, you'd swear they think they are like the Beatles of California or something... Flea is amazingly talented, but the rest of it sort of feels arrogant to me.
