    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.
    I didn't say Eddie invented it but some of his fans seem to think so and that's who the comment was directed at

    A LUTE IS JUST A GUITAR THAT ATE A DAMN AVOCADO. GO BACK TO MIDDLE EARTH FRODO.

    Yeah. They do. I understood. I was just defending my man's honor.

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.
    Definitely agree on this one. Technically blows my mind, but except for some of his hits, he seems allergic to pop music and forcefully tries to avoid it (which is why he left Cream for instance). Ultimately makes a lot of his repertoire sound dull.

    Pink Floyd is also overrated imho. Can't think of anyone with a better tone than Gilmour but song structures are often forcefully weird / arty-farty and long-winded.

    Also noteworthy :

    Led Zeppelin
    Dream Theater
    Foo Fighters (Screamo imo)

    For the record, I was a huge Nirvana fan and owned basically all of their albums. I used to skip school, get high, and listen to their music. One time my mom came home from work for lunch and I had to hide in my closet silently. Yeah... I was a cliche rebellious teen.

    Here are the bands and artists I can think of off the top of my head. Some of them aren't huge names but have a fan following nonetheless.

    The Doors
    Primus (I knew a guy who loved them and they're just crap).
    All "boy bands" + The Spice Girls
    Taylor Swift (she makes me want to stab myself, kinda like this next guy)
    Elliot Smith (even though I had 2 of his shit albums)
    5 Finger Death Punch (makes me wanna 5 finger death punch myself because rock is a whiny little bitch now apparently)
    David Bowie (sorry, was a wonderful artist and human being but I hate his music)
    Green Day
    Jane's Addiction
    Drake

    I'm sure there are a million more but my brain only works on some days. Today is not one of them.
    Perpetual mood

    And from here on out, I'm not gonna feel anything new.
    Just lesser versions of what I've already felt.”
