    People who dislike the Beatles and Elvis are doing so only because they want to be contrary.

That's the case with a lot of the bands I listed - mostly good bands (minus a few), but not the 2nd coming, IMO.
    Fair point, but nobody has ever been or will ever be as good as the Beatles, when it comes to pop songwriting. (And "pop" covers everything from rock to hip hop here, anything that uses a 3-minute marketable radio single format!)
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Hmm... I guess I was thinking more of the people in my generation who lived through the ruckus.

    Cause you're right.
    Elvis wasn't a great singer.
    He was very entertaining eye candy though.

    AC/DC has great guitarwork and some good songs, but other than that, it's just the same "hard rock riff" formula with a somewhat-melodic solo thrown in at the end. And Guns 'n' Roses is just another hair band.

    Who do you guys think is the most overrated artist?
    That's funny, I clicked on this thread ready to post AC/DC

    Close...there's a difference between "I dislike it" and "It's bad" that most people refuse to acknowledge (or are incapable of acknowledging.)

    I don't really enjoy Elvis's music that much either, but he was an awesome musician and that's not even debatable.

    Likewise, there are numerous bad bands that I really enjoy, just because they happen to appeal to me.

    You can't run around telling other people what they should or shouldn't like--that's all up to opinion--but when it comes to who's good, that's a different story entirely.

    So I think what you mean to say is, people who say the Beatles/Elvis are bad are either stupid or just doing so to piss people off.

    Umm...your point?

    Try telling that to my uncle who thinks Blue Christmas is the most beautiful song of all time. Lol.

    The most overrated for me is Green Day. They used to be good but since American Idiot I couldn't stand them or the bandwagon fans that only became fans when AI came out. They're only redeeming quality is that they don't like Twilight. Anyone who doesn't like Twilight gains instant points with me. Other than that, meh about them.
