I'm kinda tired of hearing and reading the word "overrated"

So, I'm trying a new angle here: Who are some artists or bands who you hate or dislike, yet you find yourself having some respect for?

Like if they were the first to do this or they only ones to do that... etc. Innovators in their genre somehow.

Or maybe they did one thing extremely different from what the normally do.


I'll start... Marilyn Manson. He's had a few songs here and there that I thought were just ok. Nothing great, nothing worth too much of my time. The reason this guy pisses me off is that there are people who worship his freak-ass and think he is "sexy"
*shudders*

BUT! I respect the man because of the work he did scoring the first Resident Evil movie with Marco Beltrami. I liked the mood they created and I believe that if they had kept him on to score the other two RE movies, they wouldn't have sucked so bad.

So, that is an example... and no flaming or anything like that. This isn't a "hate" only thread. This is a "I hate them, but dammit, I respect them" thread.

(And if this has been done before, I'm sorry. The search bar wasn't working a minute ago. Might be my internet connection.)

I don't hate Jason Becker at all, but I don't like his music. However, I still respect his devotion to music and his character.

dragonforce. im not really sure what to think...i dont like their music really but they play like crazy but they also use a lot of effects and layered guitars
#16
Pink Floyd. I, for one reason or another, can't stand their music. Still, Gilmour and Waters are both great musicians.

Same goes for Muse.

OH! And whoever wrote the following songs:

Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go- Wham
Jessie's Girl- Rick Springfield
Danger Zone- Kenny Loggins
Sister Christian- Night Ranger
Here I Go Again- Whitesnake

Because they're so goddamn catchy.

ICP... their music sucks ass, and despite all the ridicule and hate they get, they did manage to carve a niche for themselves, did all themselves.

I guess I respect Enter Shikari for the same exact thing...


According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Off the top of my high mind:

James Blunt, when his Your Beautiful was a giant hit. I read him saying in an interview once

"Yeah a lot of people keep saying I'm a one hit wonder but hey, that song keeps getting me laid all the time."

(something to that effect anyway.)

Would you believe, that James Blunt was an officer in the British army in Kosovo?

Damn.

The singer from A7X. His voice has always annoyed me alot, but for some reason his voice fits really well with the music.

I could say the same about Phil Anselmo and Axl Rose.

Prince. I really can't stand his music, but he can play the hell out of a guitar.

The Beatles, Muse, The Mars Volta and Fall of Troy. I don't like their music, but they're good musicians who did their own thing, and I admire that.

Also, Leo Fender. I love his designs, but apparently he was an asshole.
#36
I just thought of someone else: David Bowie. I don't see the big deal, but he is a huge influence to many musicians I enjoy listening to. So, he must have done something right.

After going through my some old threads of mine, I found this one and couldn't help but notice that everyone was being civil and no one had said that this was done before. Wonder why I didn't keep it alive?

Bringing it back:

Foo Fighters. I really don't see anything great about them. But, Dave Grohl is a great multi-talented musician. I'd like him better if he'd stick to drumming, but its great he can do so many other things. I just don't like him as a front man.
