    AC/DC by far. Three chord songs may appeal to some, but not me. The most overated rock band ever, and by doing this have become a revoltion, but talent wise, no better than the average pub band. (not saying all of you small gig players out there are as bad as AC/DC) :thumb:

    Metallica - no soul at all...and Rush.

    I know, people love them...no accounting for taste. IMO they both suck.:lol:

    Lot's of opinions slamming rock greats. Can't compare them today in retrospect. People must understand some of these guitarists cut a path that everyone else followed, even if they weren't technically the greatest.

    Anyone who thinks the Dead was over rated wasnt there. They have been a primary influence of half of the real music today. If all you know is the studio stuff then your opinion means nothing they were not a studio band. In their heyday you couldn't beat em.
    Anyone who has actually been to a show when Jerry was kickin it would not be saying they were over rated.
    The later years were riddled with problems from Jerrys health to a bunch of posers there for the drugs and nothing more. It was a real bummer.

    Nickleback ! Pretty much everyone else shined in a time where there was plenty of talent around. Nickleback is shining in a big musical void!!! If I wasn't for strip clubs, would we even know Nickleback?

    One of the only reasons Nickelback is even popular still in the first place is because they're so awful and nobody can shut up about it while simultaneously complaining "WHY WON'T THEY JUST GO AWAAAYYY." It's hard for something to go away when you never shut up about it
