    I don't think I reject bands right off the bat and think of them all day but here are some which I might of said in the past already: (lol)

    Please note: no hard feelings to any who like this stuff: and I'm probably forgetting a lot.

    My Chemical Romance: whiny, fake emo, and songs condoning suicidal feelings.

    Green Day (2000's on): You know punk really is I guess too, political. But punk was better before the millennium hit. Imo. When September Ends sounds so blah compared to their previous work.

    Most mainstream Rock: Rise Against, Three Days Grace, 30 Seconds to Mars, All-American Rejects, etc.

    Blink 182: I could never get into the hype that they were in.

    Maroon 5: Songs about sex bleh.

    Nickelback: No. Just no.

    Rolling Stones: Overrated.

    Most metal: sound the same, sorry. I do like progressive rock and post metal.


    Honestly, I prefer to want to share things I do like with people rather than the ones I dislike.

    Some above I agree with, like Pearl Jam, Maroon 5 (all songs sound the same), especially Rolling Stones, the Doors, Nirvana, Janis Joplin (yuk). The Who is probably over-rated as well. I think some of the older bands are revered because of the influence they had at the time they were popular. Nirvana IMO is mostly because of what happened Kurt Cobain. I would like to remove Bare Naked Ladies songs from my brain. They sounded like a soft drink commercial. Rap I also wish to exterminate as well though some of Eminem's stuff was ok. Christina Aguilera has an amazing voice but I really can't remember any songs that I thought were that good.

    I have always thought Led Zeppelin is really pretty good. Maybe they are over-rated but there is something about the experience that is special. I think Aerosmith is one of the great bands of all time. Evanescence is awesome.

    Metallica... I really have trouble telling their songs apart, though part of that may be because I just don't care to... I don't see why people ever loved them or thought that they were special

    I like a lot of the bands mentioned in this thread. Although I may have grown out of The Doors a little. Zepp is pretty cool, I think.
    LOL, I'm such a plebe.

    Maybe Adele, with the exception of the Skyfall song? Although I generally feel that way about that particular genre. Oh, I just thought of a rock and roll one. The Sex Pistols..... just noise.

    The Ten Most Overrated Bands Of All Time — Wax & Wane

    my own thoughts

    -Led Zeppelin? Fucking snore. I'm sorry, I always thought they were a second rate blues rock band. Page was a gifted session player, I'll give them that. Robert Plant is just Janis Joplin with a dick and testicles.

    -Janis Joplin? Okay, she made it possible for women to be accepted as gritty, sexy rock stars alongside people like Jagger. Fair enough, she deserves credit for that. But I could never get into her music. I found a lot of the Big Brother and the Holding Company songs BORING--it's bar music. I'd rather just listen to Otis Redding or Aretha Franklin for superior examples of classic R & B. As far as female rockers pushing the boundaries in the 60s, I prefer Grace Slick of the Jefferson Airplane, who could, um, sing. Janis Joplin is just Robert Plant with tits.

    -Nirvana? Punk rock in flannel, little more. Neil Young and Crazy Horse called and they want their sound back.

    -Clapton? Same reason I never got into Zeppelin and Joplin. Cream and Blind Faith were alright. Layla is a decent album. Everything else he did has bored me to tears. A gifted sideman who should never have been a solo act. He has nothing on Jeff Beck. He might be better (technically) than David Gilmour and Syd Barrett, yet those two at least took their blues influence and transformed it into something sonically interesting rather than just playing copy and paste, watered down appropriations of far better blues players from the 50s and 60s.

    -The Doors? They're not bad, but they're not the greatest. They were sort of the anti-hippie band, and I can respect that, but then I would say both Love and The Velvet Underground were more interesting bands in that regard, and did more than just white guy blues rock--both sadly underrated in their time, even if they've since become overrated by hipster critics in their own rights. Jim Morrison was just a glorified hybrid of Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. LA Woman and Strange Days are OKAY albums.

    Some more not on that list:
    -John Williams (OK he's pretty good, but how many Oscars does this man need?)
    -Aerosmith
    -Van Halen - Eddie didn;t even invent "tapping," so stop saying he did. Steve Hackett of Genesis and probably some classical guitarist I've never heard of deserve more credit for that.
    -Pearl Jam
    -David Bowie - I actually LOVE Bowie but he owed A LOT to his contemporaries and forebears such as T-Rex, Dylan, Eno, Roxy Music, The Velvets and Lou Reed, Scott Fucking Walker, et al. He appropriated far more than he innovated and progressed, and that's perfectly fine, but let's appreciate him for being good at refining and popularizing fledgling genres rather than being some grand innovator. He had a eye and ear for what people wanted, what was on the horizon, and he knew when genres had overstayed their welcomes or become tired and stale (i.e. dropping glam rock before it became a novelty).
    -Mozart - just because I think Haydn and Beethoven were better. Personal preference.
    -Frank Zappa - dude, slow down with the releases. There's prolific, and then there's let's-spew-out-five-albums-a-year prolific. Plus, I dunno, the whole elitist, snobby, making fun of other bands thing was probably cute for a bit, but he did that his entire career. Respect him for his attacks on censorship in the 80s though. He was a prick to the Velvets, that never sat right with me. I dunno, I didn't see anything too innovative about his music--just a glorified mash of prog rock and jazz fusion, but I'm sure there's some Zappa fans ready to talk down to me and explain how his music isn't "for everyone"
    -The Who

    I know I'll get some flak for this, but they're just my opinions. Feel free to list your own overrated bands and mercilessly shred them.
    To be fair, Eddie has never taken credit for inventing tapping. He just made it famous. Showman SP's: were just gonna make it look *that* much better.

    The Who: Musical theater majors with a minor in Performance Art. Just too self-aware for their own good.

    Nirvana was raw af. It made them great but it also made them overrated. I think KC was trapped in his own frustration as a musician. Always falling back on sloppy/self-pity/rage and poor guitar playing.

    You know how the Beatles reinvented themselves with India? If Nirvana met the Dhali Llama they would have become Blind Melon. (Underrated!)

    This is difficult because even crap bands are still great or talented! I could give each big compliments too but that isn't the spirit of the thread.

    Most indie bands are overrated. I can't even list them all. Just hacks who get a mandolin they picked up from a flea market and add that 2nd lesson experience to some terrible new-timey drum and fife music. Hard pass.


    Meg White got lucky.

    What the hell is wrong with drum and fife music? America wouldn't exist if it wasn't for fife-and-drum music; we'd all be speaking English now. You hate America?
