they just say that because they hear everyone else say they love LZ

I too agree Free Bird gets old....QUICK. I also hate Led Zepplins mainstream stuff to a point where I could strangle someone. My favorite song by them is Trampled Underfoot.

I think that AC/DC is the most overrated band. Nothing about them thrills me and their songs just sound too similar to one another.

I just hate the latest Take That album, and that's pretty popular among the un-musically-literate.

That's all I'm saying.

THE BEATLES and LED ZEP.

#13
Wrong forum, this has been done so many times. Anyway,
I STRONGLY disagree with your list, I would say Black Label Society, The Beatles, Pink Floyd.
#14
U2 may be a tad overrated but they are still one of my favourite bands. The same with Metallica really. Green Day are defiantly overrated, however most of it is towards "American Idiot" whereas there old stuff is reasonably good. I dislike Led Zepplin and the Beatles, however they had had an enourmous influence on modern music.

Pink Floyd.

but Metallica is not overrated at all

Pink Floyd Overrated?
Have you listened to their music at all?
#17
Metallica, Ac/Dc, U2, A7X, Ramones, Sex Pistols....
GN'R ain't over rated, they are a good band. Slash is a decent guitar player but he is def. over rated.

I guess it really all depends on what you feel makes a guitarist/band worth "being rated."

I'm always confused when I hear people say that bands like the Beatles are overrated or that guitarists like SLASH are overrated. Personally, the Beatles, as a band, and SLASH, as a guitarist, had huge impacts on the way music is played and on music history/culture in general. I think that makes them worth every bit of praise they get.

But I guess if you base a band or a guitarists worth off of being able to shred like Steve Vai or Yngwie Malmsteen, then, yes, bands like the Beatles and guitarists like SLASH are overrated.

Led Zeppelin-I love Zeppelin to death, but I am sick of the piles and piles of acclaim thats thrust upon them without any thought.

Pink Floyd-Boring, and overly pretentious

U2-Boring as hell

Nirvana-They had a couple of good tunes, but they did not revolutionize music at all. All they did was shift the labels attention from glam to grunge

Guns N' Roses-Great band, but anyone who thinks they put "the balls back into the music" Should realize that there was a gigantic underground thrash scene, fueled by
testostrone and beer, that made GnR look like Winger

Anthrax-A couple of good tunes, nothing more

umm i agree


the band that shouldve gotten the attention nirvana had during that time was alice in chains

i beleive they invented grunge
#29
I don't consider GNR overrated because at the time they did something different and made a great album when they were only 20 years old. I agree/disagree with the fact that Slash is overrated. He writes great riffs and solos and is a versatile player. I think people consider him overrated is because he is really popular among guitar players and non-guitar players. That is just because his music appeals to a lot of different people. His image plays a role in that to as well. I somewhat agree with him being overrated because people who don't play guitar may say he is a guitar god and what have you thinking he is better then he is.

Dude you know how many people DON'T know about Free Bird? It's surprising, it's not THAT popular it seems.

Metallica is overrated, Guns N Roses isn't overrated, just no one likes Axl for ****. U2 has been dead for years, and Clapton earns his right as a damn good artist.

Nirvana = Most overrated band ever. There not remotely good to me.
Kurt Cobain = Most overrated guitarist ever. He's not even GOOD. He just plays power chords from what I see, and his solos...there just the vocals played on the guitar.

I agree with Clapton. He isn't very good. IMO, his only good solo was crossroads.

i kinda think the solo to crossroads was one of his weak ones. he rips on the live solos.

I disagree that Led Zep, the Beatles and Queen are over rated. Over played perhaps, but not overrated.

I do think that Nirvana, Green Day, Guns N Roses and the Doors are over rated.

I agree, Nickleback are generic commercial radio-rock, and Kid Rock makes AC/Dc look like Dream Theater
#39
IMHO, AC/DC isn't really overrated. They are a great band and get the props they deserve, but I never really hear anyone call them a "godsend" band as much as Metallica or GnR, which are also great bands by the way.

I'm gonna have to say Nirvana because their songs don't have a lot of "feeling", ya know? It almost makes them seem monotonous when they play because there's not much emotion in their music.
