Bands/artists everyone loves but you don't...

You know, there are some bands/artists considered "sacred" that it's some kind of sacrilege not being a fan, since almost everyone likes them. But sometimes, you simply can't stand the music or the band itself. What are yours?

Mine are:

STING
THE POLICE
REM
U2
METALLICA
ERIC CLAPTON
NIRVANA
SOUNDGARDEN
PEARL JAM
JIMI HENDRIX
WHITESNAKE
RUSH
ZZ TOP
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
DIRE STRAITS
MARK KNOPFLER
THE WHITE STRIPES
ANASTACIA

and dozens more...

All overrated shit IMO.

Not everyone likes the bands you mentioned. You mean bands you think are just overrated. Sacred are bands like The Beatles, Stones or artists like Presley.
I mean Anastacia considered as sacred??? She has one hit album.

Just a difference in the word choice, but I know what you mean.

Overrated bands/artists:

Nirvana
Pearl Jam (worst band ever)
Most "The Something + s" type of bands of the last couple of years (like The Kills and others)
Frank Zappa
Beefheart
Neil Young
N.E.R.D.


and hundreds of others

Most people mentioned here I agree on except for Neil Young. I think he belongs in the top of all musicians. Nirvana is way overrated, but their Unplugged set was fantastic.

Gotta agree on Jimi Hendrix...
He was a fine guitarist... was able to write good songs. But that's it. I never considered him the God everyone says he is. So actually he's overrated. I have all his albums though... and they are really good... but I heard better songwriters, better guitarists & better vocalists.

Would have said Zappa only one year ago; but downloaded some good sh*t from One Size Fits All, We´re Only In It For The Money; and the late 70´s stuff. But he sure aint no God.

Here´s my list:

Dylan
Robbie Williams
Rod Stewart as solo artist
Eagles
Smokey
Sweet
ABBA (though - or just because - I´m a Swede)
CCR

...And the most overrated all-time-high:
The Smiths
and Morrisey

N o t U2; they are as good as their rumour; I just think many Tell Me-folks are obsessed beacause they´re s'possed to be threatening Stones on the throne

Sting

Phil Collins

"everyone loves" in the title is a bit strange, nobody is loved by everybody, not even the Rolling Stones, oddly enough...:-)

anyway, I go for Dylan - terrible singer
Pink Floyd, Sting, Coldplay - all sound lame to me

Hahaha LOL Morrissey!! and the Smiths! I had forgotten about that whiner. Ugh dreadful yes!
And Eric Clapton is th worst most boring person IMO. Way overrated.
All others like Sting, Phil Collins are too obvious. Any half assed rocker with any kind of cred is not even going to consider them.
I don't dig green day too much. Their songs are lame. Production is firstclass but the tunes bite.

"All of the silly white bands that wear their winter hats in the warm weather" by cafaro is a full-body-hit! Right!
I would though be offended normally by mentioning the Doors as an overrated band - 'cause they are favorites of mine - but I'm at the moment pretty tired of them... After I discovered all the dimensions of the Stones and their sources of blues I can´t anymore place the Doors as a blues band (still there are some fine moments, e.g. Cars Hiss By Window, Roadhouse Blues & some more. In the future I will appreciate Morrison´s poetry more than the music.

Some guys mentioned Rod Stewart solo.

He did record some supurb albums in the 70s.
If you like The Faces, I guess you should like some of his solo work better(Every Picture, Gasoline Alley)

I know, BowieStone.
But I saw him at Parkinson and he stank.
Now he´s a real crooner, like the Sinatra of the 00´s.

Yes, I know... I'm not a big fan of what he is doing now.
But that's not what Rod really stands for.

"BoSto": Give us some good tracks;
Which(what) album from good ol days are(is) the best?
Your favorite songs?

Re: Bands/artists everyone loves but you don't...

Gasoline Alley, Every Picture tells a Story, An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down, Never a Dull Moment (all of them are with Ron Wood), Atlantic Crossing, A Night On The Town, Foot Loose & Fancy Free

are all terrific albums. And the first 4 I mentioned are better then the faces IMHO.

Those albums = Rod Stewart solo... you can't deny it... that's great stuff. Not his 80s & 90s output... although some true hidden gems in the last 25 years.

Better than Faces. Gotta check.
I´m afraid its with Rod like with Melanie
(old thread) for others; sometimes you simply havent the distance to an artist.
I was breastfed, or at least, daily brainwashed with mr Stewart
along the 70´s, as a kid. I´ll give him a new chance
There are some vinyls in my neighbouring city for ab 1$/album.
Some of the one you mention I think, often in fairly good shape.

Re: Bands/artists everyone loves but you don't...

U2, Talking Heads, Green Day, REM ('cept "Monster"), Black Sabbath, Rolling Stones (PSYCHE!).

Anyone that thinks that Jimi Hendrix was/is overrated wasn't around when he broke on the scene, he changed EVERYTHING! Overrated, not on your life.

BowieStone wrote: He was a fine guitarist... was able to write good songs. But that's it. "Fine" guitarist? He redefined how to play the instrument, just ask Les Paul. "Good" songs? How many artists have covered Hendrix tunes? And anyway how much more is there? Beyond The Beatles and The Stones I can't think of another single artist who had more of an impact on the music scene in the 60's. I mean I've alway's heard that the first time Pete Townsend saw him live Pete wanted to give up playing. All of the British bands were blown away by him.

I ain't stupid, I'm just guitarded.
