    That's the point, why do you think Mr Rotten was a little annoyed at a sizable portion of his "fans"? Beacuse of image? No. It's because instead of actually thinking, they simply followed him with a "**** yeah" which is exactly what he never wants.

    Okay after reading what's fallen after the posts yesterday, a few issues...

    1. Yes I am posting my honest opinion, evaluated empirically and measured against the same yardstick as yours.
    2. Fair dues, yours is bigger... I mean I'd argue the ruler is bent but I'd seem whiney
    3. How on earth can anyone expect to calm or even point out that someone is being a little too emotional by getting all emotional?

    Jeez you can tell the age gap a mile off with some people.

    I thought we were going on our opinions of how much we liked the bands, not how "important" they are.

    When I say that a band is overrated, I am saying very generally that there is a great disparity between how much I like the band and how much everyone else seems to like the band. Because you are right about the other stuff being more objective.

    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.
    Nope, no way is Guns N' Roses overrated. Their variety is great, they're my personal favorite band of all time.

    Perhaps from an objective view point it would be possible to say that all groups who have any form of prestige are over rated. After all if past the point of making music that is capable of pleasing a listener then isn't it all just opinion and hot air? Thus pretty much every band you can think of is over rated.

    Sorted.

    I love music. My collection is vast so I just can't say any band/performer is overrated. it goes against my music lovin' upbringing and all that is moral and good in the world. some of you should be ashamed.

    I was just trying to point out that it's totally possible to be a band put together to sell clothing AND make some great music.
