I feel bad though. There's this girl in my class who's in love with guns n roses, and I keep proving to her how much superior the bands I like are better than guns n roses. I keep telling her about tool, rush, apc, pt, queen, yes, king crimson, dream theater, and other rock bands that are actually better like triumph, dire straits, and so on...
She struggles to say anything, and has begun to realizing how badly she is overrating them. I like them a lot, but she says that those guys are all the best at their instruments, that they have the deepest lyrics, that they have long songs (  z7shysterical.gif  ). And now she's begun to realize there is better stuff out there. I wonder if I did her a favor?

I think a lot of bands are overrated, but a lot of the bands I love are considered overrated by family and friends. That's the name of the game and it usually ends up a nice debate and/or argument over a couple of beers.

Anyway, I can not fathom the success or popularity of Bon Jovi. I will go to my grave worried for mankind and confused on why it happened.

Anyone who thinks that The Beatled are over-rated is an ignorant moron. I don't even like them much but their influence on modern pop and rock music has been immense.

Good if they were influential, but all the bands who came later an were "influenced" were better than them.

You've made a wholly subjective (and fatuous) reply to my stated fact, what was the point of that?

All the bands who came after The Beatles were superior to them.

Theres no point really, the Beattles just suck.

I was cutting him some slack since it looks like English is his second language but this is too much.  Ignorance or trolling, i don;t know....

Indeed, Akron is from Costa Rica.

A small favor, perhaps.  It's not like you saved her from a burning building or gave her a great stock tip.

The Beatles - I just can't stand them

The Doors- if Morrison didn't die he wouldn't be the "legend" he is today, and Manzarek's f*ckin' playing gives me such a headache!

Zeppelin- never liked Plant's whiny ass shrill voice

Nirvana- talentless hacks who just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Cobain was a horrible "singer" and an even worse guitarist.

Clapton- just an alright player to me- not the guitar hero many think he is

Beatles - early beatles were good, but definately over-rated! they overshadowed and stole so much spotlight away from other awesome bands albeit not their fault. later beatles, different story! they progressed into arguably the first prog band and did some very creative stuff! plus the big "british invasion fan-gasm" was over with.

the Doors - completely agree about Morrison but I do like some of the stuff he wrote. the other band members were all decent musicians but their music didn't do much for me. too shrilly and carnival-like. and no bass player?!? wtf!

Zeppelin - they were pretty popular but I think they deserve to be! Physical Graffiti and the debut album have always been "must haves" for me!

Nirvana - I agree. I mean yeah they "invented a genre" but was it a GOOD genre...? lol

Clapton - I agree. he's good but ya..



I can't believe no one's mentioned the Rolling Stones yet...  some people think they invented rock and roll for cryin out loud!


EDIT: ok turns out the Stones were mentioned by Ghostworks...  trink39.gif

I agree, his logic is flawed.

I never liked using the terms "better" or "best" when describing music. I prefer "most influential." Some Rush fans will look down on other bands if their musicianship isn't flashy, and ignore the influence those bands may have had. To do that with the Beatles, if indeed that's what Akron is doing, is criminal. You don't have to like them, but you have to respect them. No rock or pop band was more influential, despite their lack of flashy chops.

It's simple really. If you aren't a fan of a band and lots of other people are you might be disposed to dismissing them as over-rated.

Just think about how many people out there consider Rush to be "shit".

50% of their fans for starters... wink.gif
