The Most Overrated Bands

4crazyweldermen 7 years, 7 months ago at Oct 29 4:31 -
This is a post/threads for those that feel they should express which bands/groups/people they feel are OVERRATED.

My Nomination: LED ZEPPELIN


Well they did not start metal, a popular misconception and they're overplayed. I do think they're talented and they're good, I'm not saying they aren't. The thing is EVERYONE, most LOVE THEM and say they're the best. That is the definition of overrated= not as good as they're made out to be yet everyone loves them. get over it..they aren't "GODS", such a gay term, so lame. They're so overplayed it's unbelievable.

Bonham and JPJ are Gods for rock and roll.

I nominate:Nickelback, and Disturbed

Other great nominations!

I agree with Nickelback & Disturbed...

The Eagles
99% of Mainstream Hip-hop artists
Any band playing pop country
Tool (who I like, but their popularity has increased even though their musical output has been on a steady decline from what it once was)
Avenged Sevenfold
Green Day
Neon Indian
Lowest Common Denominator Soundsystem
Linkin Park
Lady Gaga
Of Montreal
lots of other bands I hate that people inexplicably enjoy

And I still say Zep is accurately rated.
4crazyweldermen 7 years, 7 months ago at Oct 29 22:23 -
Muse? no way ahhh.

My other choices:

Disturbed, The Eagles, U2, The Beatles(even tho I love them), Linkin Park, Journey, Coldplay, Ac/DC, Aerosmith, Rage Against The Machine, Metallica. Those are my other tops. I'm sure there are others haha

If I'm honest, I don't truly know enough about music in general, or the history and evolution of all things music to confidently declare many artists "over-rated".

But that won't stop me from sharing who I just don't get or plain hate that a bunch of people adore. That list looks like this:

Pink Floyd
Dave Matthew's Band
3 Doors Grace Linkin Nickel
anything Weezer put out that's not Pinkerton
Kings of Leon
Smashing Pumpkins
probably every artist on the top ten list for most youtube views.

Awesome list/post I must say, I agree with all of those
the giraffe 7 years, 7 months ago at Oct 30 3:05 -
Can't believe I'd missed Coldplay and Kings of Leon in my list. Heh.

And I agree on not seeing the appeal of Cake and any of the Pearl Jam clones (3 Doors Down, Creed, Nickelback, Eve 6, Our Lady Peace, and all the other bands that sound exactly like them).

I'll give you Journey too. Meh.

I'm not going to quote bands like Linkin Park or Lady Gaga because they are the usual commercial trash that always was and will always be succesful.
Although I love The Beatles, I have to say they're overrated. But I think they are a pretty good band to be "the best band ever".

Now, I think all the 70s and 80s "hard rock" is REALLY overrated.
AC/DC, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Guns 'n' Roses (THIS BAND, MAINLY) and all that but Led Zeppelin is nothing but trash.
renan 7 years, 5 months ago at Dec 31 20:50 -
Oh, I almost forgot one of the most overrated movements in history: GRUNGE.
God damn, I like some musics, okay, but Kurt Cobain was not "the last rocknroll heroe" or something like that, for god sake.

I am going to say Nirvana

First off with Nirvana; I don't see how Kurt Cobain is cited as a "great" guitar player. Just study his work, power chord mania, and he really could not play much. Never got the hype around them. I admire Dave Grohl as one hell of a musician from guitar player to drums, and he's released some great work over the years with the Foo Fighters, but I never got the whole buzz about Nirvana. Just not for me.

And yeah I agree with Kurt Cobain, he wasn't the "last rock and roll hero" if anyone saved Rock and Roll it was the hard rock bands in the late 80's, and the re-surging Blues players SRV and Albert Collins had it going on a right track.

The Rolling Stones - there is just something very lazy about them

Madonna - strip away the visuals and you are left with a few average pop/dance songs

but the most over rated of all time

Love - seriously I cannot see why people get excited about them - One hit wonders with Alone Again Or, which IS a brilliant song, but the rest is all foregttable

Eric Clapton' stuff...and Iron Maiden

No Led Zep No Heavy Metal...
Michael S 5 years ago at May 31 15:56 -
Guns n' Roses
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Fnord Prefect 5 years ago at Jun 6 21:27 -
Bon Jovi
The Doors
Led Zepplin (Max, I respectfully disagree. MC5 debuted a year before Zep and were absolutely at the forefront of what would become Heavy Metal, with or without Zep's influence)

Katie Perry, Justin Bieber, Disney artists, etc. aren't overrated. They're not even rated. They're product, and not meant to be influential or regarded as anything more than tween music. They do their job and they do it well. I know, because I'm outside their target demographic and don't listen to them ever.

I respectfully disagree with you, Prefect, I've bought Kick Out the Jams back in 1977 but still sounds punk to me. I don't like punk rock so much, I don't hate it but I don't love it.

Oasis and Eric Clapton don't do much for me.

I hate to say this, but for me The Beatles is the most overrated band of all time.
