I would have to say the Muse in my opinion is the most over rated band.

Theres just something I don't like about them, they have done everything that other bands have already done, and they just are that innovative in my opinion

But the most underrated band has got to be Mogwai

Holy **** these guys can play, they are so good they dont even need vocals, the instruments just carry you away.

mogwai and meat puppets are the only alt/indie bands in this thread.

off the top of my head i can't think of anyone i think is over-rated. probably because if i thought they were over-rated and not good i won't listen to them.

bonnie 'prince' billy is criminally under-rated by the general world, although the critics seem to love him.

My Morning Jacket never gets any talk around here. Elvis Costello too.

Although, a lot of artists get no talk around here.
To be totally honest this forum kind of sucks.

oh yeah! the mighty mighty bosstones are underrated! sadly people usually only know them by "the impression that i get"
#10
ac/dc is definitely overrated. not that i don't like them, it's just that too many people when asked what the greatest rock band is (MCR) they answer with ac/dc

the second again "what" i assume was directed at you saying system of a down was alt/indie. it probably also arose from you calling weezer under-rated.

I don't really listen to any bands I consider overrated. I have to say that one of the most underrated bands ever are The Melvins. An indie band I never hear anyone talk about is Built to Spill. I have to agree with jakesmellspoo and say The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are great, although I'd consider them far from underrated.

Overrate: too many, Bright Eyes, Death Cab

Underrated: The Violent Femmes, The Faint

A little irony about that list, Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes was the originally the singer for The Faint.

Are you serious? I enjoy Metallica but..

1. They are not Alt/Indie and therfore they have absolutely nothing to do in this thread.
2. They are far from underrated. They are certainly one of the most acknowledged Metal bands in the history of music and Enter Sandman and Master Of Puppets are far from the only Metallica songs people know.

Anyway... The most overrated band? I don't know, I used to think Radiohead, but they've grown on me a bit. Just a bit, though. The most underrated band on this forum? Well there are far too many to choose from, but I think I'll settle for Stereolab this time. The most underrated band overall? I can't think of one right now. Stereolab?

Yes, I've come to like Stereolab quite a lot.

Muse underated what a lot of hairy balls. Muse totally rock each album they've done has been different from the last and they have been consistently on form. Matt Bellamy is one of the best singer/songwriters/musicans out there and imo the best of the new centuary. Dom and Chris provide a great back up. Have u seen them live? They are totally awesome best live act of recent years and the awards they've won prove this, saw them myself at wembley arena last december and it was deffo worth the entry fee. Can't wait for the next album

You really think so? I have that Bonnie 'Prince' Billy/Tortoise album. Probably the worst album I own, and I have Jock Jams 5.

saying radiohead and sonic youth, possibly two of the most influential bands of the past 20-30 years are overrated is a pretty bold statement.

i would say over rated - muse i do like a few songs by them but i would definitely say over rated.

under rated - air and devotchka

I think saying Radiohead is overrated is just the new cool thing to do

However, I'd like to agree with rushmore... Air is maddd underrated.

There are like so many criminally underrated bands!
To be honest, Most of Saddle Creek is a bit over rated (not to say that I don't like them)
and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists are under rated IMO. You never hear ANYTHING about them in australia =(.
I've almost finished.
