    Most over rated band of all time

    Who would you all say is the most over rated rock band of all time and why?

    Some of the most over rated bands to me are AC/DC, Sublime, Nickleback... there are a bunch. But #1 on that list is Nirvana. Kirk Cobain could barely play guitar, and wasn't that great of a singer. They played catchy songs, and had this raw and somewhat fresh style and look, but they really were not good musicians. The first time I ever picked up a guitar, I learned how to play "Smells Like Teen Spirit" that's how easy their songs are.


    This is Ophion speaking.

    Sometimes a band, and music (and life) in general, isn't about how difficult it is. Finding something amazing in the simple is its own kind of genius.

    I don't know if Nickelback is overrated or not, but I hate them with a deep passion. Their songs all sound the same.

    Re: Most over rated band of all time

    I'll go with Nirvana but for a different reason. I just feel like they fell into a right place, right time type of situation. That's not to say that they were devoid of talent - Dave Grohl has turned out to not only be a great drummer but one he'll of a good frontman. And I'll stop short of calling Cobain a genius but there was something magnetic about him that drew people in.
    I just think that the grunge era would have happened with or without Nirvana. And their long term influence on music is questionable.

    And all this thread is gonna turn into is people listing the bands they don't like and calling them over rated.

    I've come to expect that. And you're correct.
