      i wouldnt consider limp bizkit to be overrated, because for the most part theyve paid their way to the top. thats how they first got on the radio, and now they under investigation for TRL fraud. i've never heard a respectable person say they like them.

      The rolling stones are not overrated if you have ever heard the music of theirs that is not played on the radio.
      how come a transvestite donkey witch is next to you and why is it wearing a dress?

      Overrated? I think At The Drive In's Relationship of Command was overrated. I'm ending it there, don't want to start a fight.

      I'm the one who started the most under rated band string, and this is another one that's really good to post on. I almost started this same one myself. The most OVER rated band/bands of all time are without a doubt The Who and Led Zepplin. The Who is so absolutely terrible it's pathetic. And that joke "Tommy" album is a piece of garbage.

    12. 10-03-2001 12:27 PM #11
      I agree, the Rolling stones are a really great band. Anything they have put out from there "Steel Wheels" album until now has been terrible, but all those albums they made before (lots of them) were excellent.

      I personally think you're on crack.

      Oh, and the Stones do not EVER belong on a list of over-rated bands...EVER! If you need proof, acquire a copy of the London Years disks (3 disks) and listen to them straight through. I don't like all of their songs or music, but there is no denying the greatness of the band.
      remember, everyone, you can't be biased by personal taste. There's a lot of music I'd never be caught dead with, but that by all means write and performs quality music.

      A big Rock Opera fan, are you? Well this crack head thinks you're a total JOKE for liking that laughable "Tommy" album. I don't mind listening to it myself here and there, it provides great amusement for me. That album makes me laugh harder then George Carlin.

      EARLY who stuff is NOT overrated, but yeah the Tommy stuff does suck. they were angry mods that turned into just another bloated rock band.
      The music that I think is ridiculously overrated:
      -Pearl Jam =they SUCK and always have. Mark Arm from Mudhoney should just kick their asses.
      -the whole 70's cocaine rock thing like Fleetwood Mac, BORING pretentious crap.
      -All rap metal bands. rock is cool. rap is cool. a mix of the two is NOT. it is only a recipe for riling up dumb white hat wearing frat boys AND/OR pseudo disaffected 15 yr olds who probably also buy ICP albums.
      -U2. for the simple fact that the Clash were so much better in so many ways.
      -DMB. how come white middle class people love this stuff so much? DMB is so awful I'm gonna have to start a thread just for the discussion of how much they suck.

      Hey- yeah the Tommy album is boring, but the movie has ann-margaret rolling around in baked beans and pudding. yesh! I think ALL this rap/rock sh1t is WAAAY
      overrated. Glad that trend is about played out. MTV also seems fond of this band called nickelback...they claim to be from ATL..I'm from ATL..I'd never seen or heard of them before...
      I stand corrected....aparently these goons are NOT from ATL,despite what a local station claims

      BTW..Dan92slc..Mudhoney rocks. They should be on the underrated bands list along w/ the melvins, the cows, and probably every other band I like.
