Absolutely. AC DC is more overrated than Angus himself, but theres many guitarists that deserve more credit than him.

this is a close call as far the polling goes.

I voted yes, but only if you credit him as an amazing guitar player. He's over-rated in that sense.

But as far as what he did to rock and roll and his stage presence, there aren't many people that top him. He brought the swagger back into rock, and he gave a lot of aspiring guitarists ideas of the future. In that sense, I don't think he's over-rated. Just dangerously close.

This pretty much hits the nail on the head.

Exactly what I was thinking.

He's hardly overrated when he's not really ranked among the best players anyway is he? It's not like he's regularly touted as an amazing player.

Stage presence however? Among the best.
