    I'm 27. If you are ever around white dudes between about 32 and 40, you'll be around some serious Pearl Jam fans. Do you have file sharing software? Search "pearl jam live" sometime. Guys in backwards baseball caps are sharing that stuff like Deadheads did 20-30 years ago.

    To discuss the most overrated musical artists - like it says in the title. I didn't make this thread to rip on The Beatles because they're a fantastic band that completely deserves the acclaim it receives, but that's just my opinion.

    Well, I really am never around people who think they were a great band. Although I just started a new job for a music placements company, and there are a lot of bands who list Creed and Alter Bridge (come on, ALTER BRIDGE?) as influences on their sound.

    Not to sound condescending, but that's probably a function of your age. I was in college when Pearl Jam hit it big, and trust me, I have several friends and acquaintances that think they're the best band in the world. Eddie Vedder inspires Jim Morrison/Kurt Cobain levels of worship. Personally, I always thought they were pretty good, but I liked Nirvana and Soundgarden better among the grunge bands.

    I think age has a lot to do with the disrespect for the Beatles, too. They were as much a cultural force as a band, and if you are too young to remember, it's hard to fathom how much they influenced the direction of popular music. They basically invented the paradigm of the rock band (or at the very least brought it first success.) You rarely hear bands say that the Beatles are one of their influences. That's because they're an influence on every band, even if it's not consciously.

    I will get killed for saying this, but I don't like the Beatles either. I'd never consider them overrated because I know they changed music, but I just can't get into them.
    jock! i'm appalled!

    Who cares if people rip the Beatles? Does it lower the band in your estimation? Does it make them less seminal? No? Then ramp down.

    I don't personally *LIKE* the Beatles, I don't relate to them, and I don't buy their music, but I would never contest their position in the formation of modern rock music, just like I wouldn't contest Elvis (do you see me attacking Xander?) or early country/rockabillies like Johnny Cash or guitarists like Link Ray or Dick Dale for pushing the evolution of the amplifier just to accommodate their style without exploding.
