Britain has really produced a lot of great music: Beatles, Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Smiths, Cure, My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Mary Chain, Blur, Radiohead... I think they've got us beat.

Don't let that idiot bother you. He cannot even spell! And my favorite Smiths song right now is Frankly Mr. Shankly, but it changes quite regularly.

You forgot The Who, Rolling Stones, Sabbath, Queen :P:

Nah, you got plenty of sweet bands. Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Metallica, REM, Tool, Sonic Youth... Hendrix, damn you, Hendrix!

Seems to be a bit of a world cup of rock bands here.... I'm Irish by the way, is this thing judged on Great band per head of population?

ah i love both his solo work and the smiths.
saw him in london in may and at benicassim, and he is fantastic!
opened with panic when i saw him in spain and that was incredible!
not so keen on his new album as with you are the quarry and some of his others, but it is still a very good album

Most overated band of all time, in my opinion. Don't hate them by any means, just, over rated.

yeah i have to agree, i think they're really overrated. I don't hate their music but there's just something about their sound that makes it sound really dated to me. I prefer most of the other British bands that have been mentioned ( the who, the cure, pink floyd, radiohead, etc)...

I am a huge Johnny Marr fan and he is underrated, but John Squire has got to be more underrated than Marr.

the short answer to your smiths proposal is:

no. regardless of your title, i think you're forgetting to take into consideration many other influential artists. namely pink floyd... anyways i think they're a bit overrated as well.

I'm not entirely sure how they can be so overrated when so many people hate them with all their soul

(And bands like Oasis exist)

I think the Beatles are overrated. I much prefer The Who to them.

Also The Smiths are my favorite non-metal/hardcore/punk band.

Well I really think you're too biased to be saying that.

Floyd is not awful in any way, I'm sorry man. One of the most important bands of all time. Even non-fans ought to be acknowledging that.

It irritates me when I'm arguing on the same side as such ignorant people. It's like people around me are discrediting any point I may have to make simply by being there.

Yeah even though I don't listen to them anymore, Pink Floyd were extremely creative, technical and were able to make a new record every time without changing too much. This is very hard to do. I agree that Led Zeppelin shouldn't be worshipped though. They're terrible.

Ahaha well it is only my opinion, but I think Jimmy Page was a boring improviser who was really sloppy, Robert Plant was annoying as fuck and that John Bonham was a stupid show off who had no reason to play thirty minute drum solos because after two minutes it becomes tired and boring. I have no beef with JPJ though, I think he was the most talented member of the group.
