I forgot to mention that Nirvana is overrated.

I cringe every time somebody says that Cobain's songs have some deep meaning and the like.

Just look at this:

"A mulatto, an albino
A mosquito, my libido"

Yeah, greatest song writer of a generation! Right?

I'll take Blind Melon over Nirvana any day when I want early nineties grunge.

Thank you. I had said that earlier than you though... although I was waiting for reactions before I explicated. BTW Alice in Chains and Mudhoney> All other grunge.


We're Going to be Friends, I think.

Only if you open your mind to the beauty and raw power that is Garage Rock biggrin


Meet Me in the Bathroom On The Other side; Alone, Together, we'll talk about this Modern Age's garage rock.

Or were you referring to the old stuff and not the recent resurgence?

Unfortunately I do not know those bands, but I love all the garage that I can find (garage rock and not garage house or the like). Garage is highly UNDERRATED. Bands of yore like the MC5 and the Kinks and The Stooges. Modern bands like The Black Keys, The Mooney Suzuki, The Strokes(to a lesser extent), The Subways, The Sugars, The Black Rebel Motercycle Club.

+1 to moca for the AAR drop too. I would add the Sex Pistols to the muck of overration as well.

Does this go out to solo artists to? IF SO HANNAH MONTANA
SHOULD WIN THIS AWARD D: I'M SICK AND TIRED OF IT!
EVEN BARBARA WALTERS INTERVIEWED HER. WHAT HAS THE WORLD
COME TO!?


She's skinny and her dad is semi-famous-ish. Get used to her. But I agree, she makes Hilary Duff look like a good actress and Ashlee Simpson look like a good singer. Haha, speaking of overrated...but anyway, Hannah Montana or Miley Cyrus or whatever she is these days totally qualifies.

*tears hair out in frustration over what qualifies as music, so long as the singer - not artist, just singer - is skinny*

That is why I listen to blues. There is no such thing as an overrated blues or jazz musician.

Also, every "Rapper" that makes club tunes is these days. That is why I stopped listening to new hip hop, unless it's from a trusted artist.

I do not really follow main stream pop music charts, so I have no idea what bands are overrated.

Smart. I should try that myself. Oh wait, I do, but I still have to listen to the hideous monstrosities every single time I go anywhere that plays the radio. And I like shopping.

I'm sure that many people don't even know who they are. I have never heard a single one of their songs.



I say that John Mayer is overrated

eh.. I like some of John Mayer's songs... =\ but I really cannot stand Waiting on the World to Change or whatever it's called.

I agree with the people who said Nickelback, the Jonas Brothers, and Hannah Montana. blehhh. some of those artists with huge tween fanbases really can't sing.

it makes me mad when "hit" radio stations or mtv start playing a song a lot and then the band becomes really popular. it's like.. the people listening don't have their own opinions and they're just clones or something. o_o it's really scary actually. I was like that when I was like.. 10-years-old, and now when I look back, I cringe.
sorry. that was slightly off topic. ^

No, but I am a Blues Guitar player, and he is very popular in the community.

I'm just wondering how rihanna does it. I mean I like her songs, but seriously it seems everything she releases gets HUGE on the radio. Does she suck the dick of her Record company president or something? I thought SOS and Pon the Replay were interesting, Unfaithful didn't make sense, and WTF is please dont stop the music. Umbrella was incredibly repetitive. although she is good, I do think she's overrated.

Rihanna doesn't even have a good voice, nor does she write her songs. She is just a money magnet.

But catchy.

I personally don't agree with the idea that Linkin Park is overrated; they're popular, but I think they deserve that popularity (from their music; no idea about the band members.)

Any of those rappers that put out some rap song about fairly trivial issues and get their song to the #1 of anything are overrated.

I don't understand why Coldplay is so popular, or was (I could just be out of it for now). I could never even listen to a single song they put out. I'd understand if some people liked them, but almost everyone I talk to about music mentions them.

Also, Utada Hikaru. (Hey, she's released English albums.) If anyone's music sounds the same-

-more than Nickelback, anyway.

I believe that Linkin Park is SUPREMELY overrated. They don't really innovate that much and for being a Rapcore/Alt metal band, they are overshadowed by many other bands.
