..i just dont get this band.i even saw them years ago at the Tibet freedom concert.What other bands do ya think are overrated.Overrated not suck for example Nickelback sucks the Chili Peppers are overrated
When I first heard the Deftones I thought they were going to be HUGE, I mean giagantic. It sounded like nothing else out there. Soon after I heard Limp Bizkit and thought they were a low-rent wannabe Deftones ripoff band that would never make it.
Shows you what I know.
As for Radiohead, I haven't listened to anything beyond the "hits" to really say if they're overrated or not.
They're overrated. I like some of their stuff, but I haven't been able to listen to anything they put out after OK Computer, which I liked a lot. I'm going to give the new album a chance, since they're letting people download it for free, but their last couple of albums reeked of too-cool-for-the-room arteest crap.
I also think Nirvana was overrated. I think Kurt Cobain gets way too much credit as a songwriter. When I hear people call him the John Lennon of his generation, I want to beat them with a shovel. Suicide doesn't equal genius.
I think people are confusing 'taste' with being 'overrated'...Of course you may not like them and thats cool...plenty of bands i dont care for...but in the collective of their output is some great music...highly reviewed and appreciated...Reviewers LOVE to slam stuff that isn't up to par...Radiohead doesn't get a free pass. The music speaks for itself...I just get the feeling a lot of you dont like their music therefore you think they're overrated. I think those can be mutually exclusive...
Radiohead just happens to be unlike most other bands out there. I think it puts a target on them. And i'm not some too cool for the room douche...I love all types of shit...i just see why they are given so much respect and adulation
