    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.
    When I saw the thread title the first two that came to mind where AC/DC and Nirvana. But was surprised to see them in your post because they both seem to be loved by most. I do have to say that part of the problem for both is they each have a handful of songs that get significantly overplayed at sporting events and on the radio.

    Nickleback isn't overrated, only because of the almost universal hate for them outside of their relatively small set of fans. I almost always find it funny, hearing hate for Nickleback is kind the inverse of hearing the The Beatles are someone's favorite band. Its a safe answer that rarely gets an argument from whoever the person is talking to (although I would put The Beatles on the most overrated list too, partially for that reason).

    For the record, I don't think I've ever heard a Nickleback song I've enjoyed and there are some AC/DC & Nirvana songs outside the really overplayed that I listen to.

    Re: Most over rated band of all time

    Two worst: Megadeth (Mustain is a ******), and Red Hot Chili Peppers

    But anybody that says Dave Matthews Band or Nirvana are simply wrong in every way.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    The Who

    Also, any hip hop artists that sample. Pulling someone's music and then laying a rhyme on top only fools those too young to know the original song. Not hating. Just saying. I enjoy pretty much any music genre.

    Re: Most over rated band of all time

    Not necessarily. My top two overrated bands would probably be Nirvana and RHC. I still like them, but they're definitely overrated.

    Also the Beatles.

    Certainly not an all-timer, but Zac Brown is a current pop star that I could live without.

    Re: Most over rated band of all time

    I think the Beatles are underrated.

    In the course of our forty-year love affair with The Beatles, something was lost. Their craft became obscured by their artistry, their artistry disappeared into their significance and their significance was eventually folded inside their legend. The result is that they are underrated for the work they did and overrated, if anything, for what it all meant.

    Bob Dylan.

    These threads are always so much fun. Can't wait for some fool to name Van Halen so I can go all "internet tough guy" on them...




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    Re: Most over rated band of all time

    I'm all in on the Beatles being overrated. They are really good. 10 out of 10. But people act like they are 100 out of 10. The world existed before the Beatles, and it continues to exist after them. They can be great without being 1 million times better than second place.

    Also ACDC. They really suck. I can't listen to anything by them after Bon Scot, it's all identical garbage.

    Aw no you di'int!! I've actually always thought AC/DC to be underrated. They have loads of songs that I feel are even better than the dozens that you hear on the radio. Heck my favorite album, Powerage, gets zero radio play at all.

    Oh well its all subjective anyway. Some bands that I've felt were overrated I looked into and then gained an appreciation for. I used to think The Rolling Stones were overrated and now I love every song on almost all their albums. My general rule of thumb is that if there is a big fuss about a band, and they are in my genre interest, I'll listen until I get it and usually end up loving it more than the music I like on first listen.
