Can you name any? Like musicians, that are dead, that had pretty much no talent at all, but were still very famous or for their private life or how they died.

I say Sid Vicious. He was a terrible singer and a below-average bassist, but people remember him because he was so controversial. Especially with killing his girlfriend and dying of a heroin overdose.

Kurt Cobain.

And tbh, Jimi Hendrix. He's not talentless...but overrated as ****. Most 12 year old Koreans are better at playing guitar than he was.

I can learn all of a specific guitarists songs. Does that mean I'm better than him?

He revolutionised rock music and his songs were fantastic. Why the hell does it matter if some kid can play better than him?

I had a friend who was held at gunpoint as a cashier. The robber told him to give him all the money in the register and what not. Apparently my friend then replied, "Would you like a slurpee with that?"

I'm trying to decide whether or not you're trolling, but whatever I'll bite.

Ill take a guess and say the 12 yo Koreans you mention are just shredders and as much as I like a bit of shred, playing fast doesn't necessarily mean you're better, it's about the feeling you put out and how it sounds.

That and this is 2011, Jimi was around in the 1960s, back when alot of the stuff he did was revolutionary, as no one had done it before, it's like saying Robert Johnson or John Lee Hooker are overrated in terms of blues, and that there are 12 year olds better then him. I mean **** I can play faster than them, but no way in hell am I better guitarist than them. It's not just about speed, it's about the sound you project. Then again going by your post, I bet you think dragonforce are teh shiz.

This thread is such a bad idea, there are some dead musicians that are overrated in my opinion, like for instance Kurt Cobain, but i would never call him talentless.

You just said he's not talentless, and then said most 12 year old Koreans are better than him. That's implying you think he's talentless and contradicts your point.

HE is not overrated, Purple Haze and Voodoo Child are.

Why don't you listen to some of his songs that aren't as popular and then try and say that he's overrated, because he's not. Listen to Pali Gap, Lover man, Straight Ahead, Ezy Ryder, Long Hot Summer Night, Gypsy Eyes, Midnight, Angel, Hey Baby, In From the Storm, Who Knows, Can You See Me... want me to keep going on?

Can someone define overrated without touching subjectivity please?

'Overrated' - that term does not exist.

It's usually said by idiots who don't understand the appeal and/or influence of a band/artist/film/show/song etc; so they make themselves feel special by going against popular opinion.
Isn't it a pity?
Now, isn't it a shame?

Hendrix had a surprising amount of dare I say "chill" songs. Which is alot cooler than him having a bunch of Purple Haze-like ones.
