Most Overrated Bands of All Time

Fri Jul 03, 2015 10:19 pm

I want to know your thoughts. I think you should only get to vote for three. 

  • U2
  • Dave Matthews
  • Backstreet Boys

I second Dave Matthews Band. I also think it's bullshit that One Direction is going to be the first billion dollar boy band.

I don't even know what that means. Billion dollar band. Didn't Michael Jackson make Sony billions? Anyway, Fox News thinks the Red Hot Chili Peppers is the worst band of all time.

Besides any hair metal and nu-metal band as whole genres (nickleback, linkin park, staind, godsmack, Motley Crue, Def Leppard), I'd have to say Tool, Green Day, and U2, but I could go on for hours as I can't limit it to just three.

Looking at your choices, I can see how you would think that about the last three. I think the bigger the band is, the easier it is to say they're overrated. The other bands you listed (except Nickelback), to me, are kind of middle of the road, at least these days. That being said, I think Green Day is one of the best bands of all time. I think there's a lot to be said for being able to do so much with simplistic style choices, and some of their choices have been really creative. I also hear they put on one of the best shows, like they're really entertaining.

Pearl Jam. Alice in Chains. Weezer. Trying to think of some bands from right now but I don't really listen to current radio shit. What's the band that did that really fucking stupid song that everyone liked? Bastille. I also hate One Republic. Carrie Underwood. And I concur with the above. Korn can go get korn-holed.
