    Default Daft Punk is overrated.

    It is an objective fact that they have achieved a level of commercial success not commensurate with their level of artistic ability. Their songs are repetitive, easy to get lodged in the head, but unlike good music, it does not make us want to keep them there.

    This is reality. The burden of proof is on others to show that this is not so. Reality does not need to be explained. It simply is.

    Subjective taste is subjective.

    *glaring contradiction*

    If you don't like Homework & Discovery, something is wrong with you. Hell, Human After All was even pretty decent.

    Meh, most bands who acheive such success are overrated.
    And now there came out of this building a form - human - was it human? ... It reminded me of symbolical images of Genius or Demon that are seen on Etruscan vases or limned on the walls of Eastern sepulchres - images that borrow the outlines of man, and are yet of another race.

    This thread is blasphemy.

    If you say something is good or bad, your merely saying something about your taste and their is grounds for anyone to argue. When you say something is underrated or overrated, it inherently involves the implication that a large number of other people are wrong, thus the groundwork for an argument is laid out.

    Dont think they've done anything good since the Insteller DVD/Album. Loved it.

    Yeah I kinda agree but they're not bad. I like the video for around the world.

    I thought it was funny when daft punk fans flipped out at kanye sampling their music in "stronger" saying he 'stole from them.' I don't think they understand how the music industry works.
