    You took "girl or boy band designed to sell clothing instead of music" and came up with sex pistols?

    What's in that blue stuff? And where is it commonly available?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Maybe not of all time, but they're up there, and they're current. I will refuse to believe that their lyrics have any substance, ever, though it's hard to do that because they make good music boring by the way they go about doing their songs, and tbh I really haven't listened to much of their lyrics.

    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.
    That's kind of the problem with this thread. Half the people are evaluating based on personal like/dislike as compared to their friends, and half are evaluating based on importance/actual ability to live up to the hype/reverence shown.

    U2 ripoff, as well. I can't hear a Coldplay song without thinking, "U2 Lite."

    They're more of a U2 ripoff than a Radiohead ripoff, I think.

    I see...it must fun to have that level of clout! Rolling Stone must be beating down your door.

    What on earth are these critical standards (aside from technical proficiency, obviously) through which we should objectively evaluate music?

    Well, they were put together by a clothing store owner who was trying to capitalize on the burgeoning punk rock scene.
