I could go on for hours about all the bands I hate. Pick anything that came out in the last 10 years and I'll probably hate it.

The only band I can really think off the top of my head is Tool. Too many people trying to find "deep" meanings in them. Don't get me wrong they aren't an awful band but people hype them too much for just being another rock band.

I actually really like Have a Nice Life even though I've never bothered to read the lyrics (nor the 75 page booklet :mellow:) :P

Most punkrock and stuff like that (the offspring sum41 and more of that) is really overrated, the songs are all the same and they usually have some fake happy sound to them.
And yeah I never really liked Tool, mostly because I couldn't care less if something is deep.

Nirvana are pretty overrated. I still quite like them but i don't like all the hype and whatnot thats placed on Kurt Cobain.

No, the Beatles were not overrated if you look at them in the context of their time; they changed music forever. I'm not even a Beatles fan and I can understand that.

So did The Who. I don't think that has anything to do with them being overrated or not. I'm sick of hearing The Beatles everywhere I go. I mean, I don't think they're that horrible, just not good enough to be played as much as your average person wants them to be played. But then again, the thing with The Beatles is that they have sooo much music that everyone is bound to like at least one or two of their songs. Their music is applicable to many different generations and types of people, so I guess it shouldn't be a huge surprise to me that they're so popular.

The problem with saying these bands are overrated is that you weren't there at the time they were created. The concepts that were new at the time aren't really new anymore, they're nothing outstanding. That's sort of like saying the Beatles are overrated. They weren't when they were first releasing songs.

I hate the kids that can't find music on their own and have to use last.fm to get it.

I don't use last.fm, but wtf? How is there a better way to find music, efficiency aside?

I guess to be fair there isn't anything wrong with using last.fm but to me it just feels like cheating. Every artist is spoon fed to you by your previous selections of music. It's like "Hey, you like this band, well you MUST like this band." Last.fm is good if you just want to listen to the same sounding stuff over and over again. For me, I look up artists on Wikipedia to see who they collaborated with, who their producer was, who else that producer has produced, and maybe I'll find a new artist that I like. I guess I just find music my own convoluted way.

No. The Who did nothing to influence and change music compared to the Beatles (even though I hate the Beatles). They're awesome and I love them, but The Who just played rock 'n' roll. While the Beatles were introspecting and becoming better artists, The Who was busy smashing their guitars and destroying their equipment.

What do you think Lastfm's suggestions are (partly) based on? Lastfm, wikipedia, it all comes down to the same thing.

Yeah, exactly. There are so many bands that have been inspired by The Who's vivacious rock style. Of course they didn't make as big of an impact as The Beatles, but there are many other bands who caused music to evolve. Black Sabbath is another one.

Maybe inspired, but surely not influenced musically and artistically. That is a huge difference.

You're thinking way too much. Music is made to be enjoyed. It's not a competition, there's no cheating.

I guess you're right, but I still feel like they have more fans than they deserve.

overrated artist.....Lil Wayne. he doesn't write his own material, and half of his songs arent even good. also, auto tune loser. now, the same could be said for many of today's artists, but i think that in the Rap genre, the biggest part is writing your own stuff because it's meaningful to you, and not about some ass you couldnt get because you were a [kitty] and didnt go get it. REAL rap that doesn't suck and is sadly overshadowed by today's BS includes stuff by Biggie, 2PAC, Eminem, Big L, Nas, Jay Z (old stuff), Rakim, Dre, etc.

overrated band.....Jonas Brothers. i dont need to hear [cabbage]ty guitar playing with [bleep]y vocals. and the disney channel [cabbage] along with those [bleep]ing 10 year old girls dont help either.

I think you're confusing "bad" and "overrated" here.

And I very much dislike the beatles, yet I'd be the last to call them overrated.

Nirvana I can see being overrated, just because of the massive amount of bandwagon fans.

In terms of G&R, their original lineup had phenomenal chemistry...once the first members started leaving, then I'd call them overrated. Definitely not the first album though.
