Does it bother you when people cite bands that you think are greatly inferior to some of your favorite bands as the greatest?

For instance, this 14 year old kid was saying how he thought Fall Out Boy are "the greatest" etc. I told him that I personally think The Beatles were the greatest...He said he didn't want to 'offend me' but he thought Fall Out Boy were greatest band in history.

Now, I know it's all subjective personal opinion...But it's like, when people cite Linkin Park, My chemical romance, fall out boy, etc. as the greatest bands I laugh a little inside..I mean not that I don't like those bands..I like LP and MCR but certainly not 'top 100' quality.

The Beatles Were alright I guess, but I prefer Aphex Twin, so what? People are entitled to their own opinions.

I realize this. But the beatles were one of the most influential, innovative, groundbreaking bands in history, that were also absolute genuis musicians...It's like, there is no way in hell linkin park or certainly MCR could top that...And I know it's all opinion but c'mon like, it has to bother you a little bit when people cite bands that you think are not really amazing as the greatest, right?

I really couldn't care less, as a matter of fact if that bothered me I would be irritated with you right now, because in my OPINION the beatles are not that great.

Get My angle?

They're just calling them the greatest band because that band is their favourite.

So it's fine.

it's only annoying when people say slash is the greatest guitarist and say stuff like "i wonder who would win in a guitar off jimmy page or slash, probably slash because he does welcome to the jungle"

anything else i don't give a crap
#12
their only citing them as the greatest cause they havent heard anything better
by better i mean the beatles cream hendrix so on
but new bands are also awesome
they just lack musical exposure
or in some rare and unfortunate cases fall out boy ( fob:P ) floats there boat in which case i pity them

Oh what the hell, Dragonforce.
People that say they are the greatest have only heard one(just one) of their songs and tell me they cannot be beaten.

To me, bands that change and shape a certain genre fall under the category of "amazing" and "the greatest".

Slash is a ******* amazing guitarist, but I don't think there is a single 'best guitarist' although I feel like I'm supposed to say it's jimi hendrix.

People can think that...but when they act like douchebags about it, then they suck.

plus no one can really say that a certain band is the greatest of all time...well at what?

plus i doubt you've listened to every band ever (not you TS, just in general.)

Define "Greatest Band", I mean the Beatles were possibly the most popular band seeing as they are number one in record sales but your individual musical tastes define what you think is great.

BUt does it bother you though? Like I hate citing critics or whatever but the beatles are constantly cited left and right as the greatest band in the history of man, right? Now would it bother you when some guy says "lol, linkin park are better"

I guess that's true. Just this guy on XBL said that, and I gave him my two cents, and we got in a quick argument.

how can one band possibly be the best band in history?
My favorite band is Tool.

Okay, but for arguements sake let's say I like Lincolin Park more than the Beatles: Does that mean I'm wrong? Nope. Should you be annoyed? Nope, becasue I'm entitled to my own point of view.

I don't like the beatles. So I don't think they are the greatest. Simple as that. The fact they were 'innovative' and 'influential' really doesn't change anything for me.

Its all subjective, don't harsh on other peoples opinions like that, it just ends with you looking like a wanker.
