Who is the most overrated artist or group ever?

Fist of all the indescribable mr. Sting. Is enough a good song and only few discographic works with the Police to make this person a great musician? I don't think so. He is absolute moderate and stagnant for many years.
Second is Oasis. Has anybody understand why this escort of picturesques has made such sensation the last decade? Personally , no!
And mr. Lenny Kravitz. Fortunately the last years has disappeared from the limelight.
U2 they are only a good commercial arena-concert group and nothing else. And for music only a good debut album ( but Desire is one of my favorite arrangements). Neal Young is probably the most overrated guitarist ever. The puppet-show man Marilyn Manson, Eagles, Rage Against The Machine, the singers of sleep Radiohead. Also Moby, Yes, Nirvana a lot of groups from the British punk scene and finally in my opinion the most overrated group Sex Pistols. i hate them!

The Beatles. They're the average 60's pop band. I don't get all the fuss...

The Who and Prince - While both have put out some good stuff, it's usually 1 or 2 good songs per album and the rest is crap. Exception - Who's Next. Also, live the Who is a true wonder - on record ? - maybe otherwise.

I agree with Reptile. While the Beatles have a few songs I like and think are pretty good I never saw what the fuss was about either.

Again t2t, I like both Prince and the Who. But I would recommend sticking to the Greatest Hits, not individual albums as with the Stones. "Who By Numbers" is no "Sticky Fingers". And "Happy Jack" ain't "Happy".

Heart - talentless, with the only thing going for them was that 2 sisters were in the band.

By the way, Reptile and tumblingdice, as for the Beatles, you had to have been there when they burst on to the scene. There was nothing like it. Maybe you both are too young to have been a part of it. In today's world, their music probably does seem tame, but back then it was groundbreaking.

Floyd is much better with some herbal remedy. I thought you were probably from the NYC area when you said you were going to Radio City. If I hit the lottery, I'll see you there.

Braves - Yankees World Series this year? May be Mets-Yankees.

Maybe you want to know what group I think is overrated ?

PINK FLOYD

I'm a fan from the day they started, I stopped after the released Meddle.
Till that time they where Pink Floyd.

After that they become POP, MONEY and SALES.

Although I like MONEY.

Sting (as opposed to the Police), Rush, Yes, the Moody Blues, Heart, Journey...all dreadful. Terrible.

Pink Floyd, though, is awful on such a huge and enduring scale as to be in their own wretched class.

So NOT rock'n'roll.

Fleetwood Mac
Journey
U2
Emerson Lake and Palmer
Styx
REO Speedwagon
Phil Collins
The Ramones
The Tragically Hip
Mariah Carey
99% of all rap artists

you and Reptile need some rock'n'roll history lessons......the Beatles impact and influence on the pop world at the time was undeniably HUGE........they literally shook up the world....just as Elvis had done in the 50's..........and there's a reason that thousands of bands followed their lead......the music

I've gotta go with Floyd.

Runner up? The Clash. I'm not saying they were bad - quite the opposite - but for every great Clash song or album there seem to be two that are just kind of mediocre. That said, when they were great, they were pretty damn untouchable. But overall, just way too uneven to warrant all the praise they get, in my opinion.

Led Zeppelin, the singer is awful and were way too self indulgent with the solo's I mean 30 min dazed and confused, and moby dick, thats just wanking in my book. It is too bad because Page wrote some great riffs that I love but so much of the time they just went too far and made a good song boring.

I think the Beatles were/are overated. But that shouldn't diminish what they established. They invented pop music. The overate simply kept the Stones in their shadow. One overated one underated.

Now this will realy get some annoyed. Although I like studying Dylan's lyrics, I think he must be the king of overate.



Sorry about the spelling mistakes. I'm drunk.

Springsteen, a complete poseur who can't play a worthwhile note on that old Tele that's just a prop, but I give him this: he can "sing" lyrics while coughing better than most

Gun's n Roses
