I've seen Sunn O))) live and they sucked... but one might've guessed that from the name already

I've seen Mastodon and I have the 3 albums - Blood Mountain is easily the best of the bunch. Ok live, but nothing truly great - they need to slip the drummer some valium.

Neurosis - great, great band. I haven't heard too much of what they've done but what I've heard is just great. Don't think I've seen them live...

Overrated bands... well... it starts with R and ends with Adiohead

I agree. I love Nirvana but no band could live up to that hype.
So true. I think they were a great pop band, but when you have a significant number of people saying that they changed the world, and that they're the single greatest rock band in history, the bar is set ridiculously high.

Re: Overrated Bands

Nirvana may or may not be overrated, but they're no more of a pop band than Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

As for American Metal... I dunno how this conversation got started but I think there are some good bands like Leviathan, LoG's pretty good. But canadian metal is where it's at for North America.
is awesome live if you ask me.

Re: Overrated Bands

The problem here is expectation - anyone who has ever been rated has almost certainly been overrated by some as much as underrated by others.

IMHO, natch

Re: Overrated Bands

I'm going to say the Doors, a very repetitive band outside a few good tunes i couldn't get into much.

Hair metal as a whole- it's just like playing van halen over and over and over again.

what? what? Who said something?


Naw, I saw something about being famous just for the sake of being famous... if I missed something more important please direct me to it.

That's why overrated is almost a nonsensical term. It's all just opinions... and seriously, wouldn't the world be a boring place if we all liked or disliked the same things.

Like how interesting was it here when I said the Beatles are overrated? C'mon!

Re: Overrated Bands

Radiohead seems to me a little overrated, not that I don't like them, I really like their music (but I prefer Rush ), a great band but....

....'Ok Computer' is considered 2nd best album of all time on RYM (Rate your Music) ?????

https://rateyourmusic.com/charts/top/album/all-time

There are thousands of albums on RYM in a lot of different genres,... but RYM users think that after decades of rockandroll and pop, the second best album of all time came in 1997!!!

That's what I call overrated (though I think their music is very good and I like 'Ok Computer'). 'Revolver' by the Beatles is considered the best album of all time, somebody can argue this (not me ), but IMO the Beatles were much more influential than Radiohead so the top position is justified.

Other bands (IMO) overrated: Nirvana, Sex Pistols, Coldplay, etc...

(from the ones above...the one I like some songs is Nirvana, hardly like Coldplay and I don't like Sex Pistols)

hence my thought about overrated
"ALL CLASSIC ROCK BANDS ARE OVERRATED" plenty of great music has come out before and after.

Re: Overrated Bands

Sis: Sure it's all opinion. Everything on this SITE is all opinion. But it's still illuminating to hear the opinions. As long as it doesn't devolve into fights, it's interesting. Like hightea says Zeppelin completely sucks. I don't know how anyone with a brain stem can feel that way, but hey, it's a reality check.

hightea: I'm sure you know lots of people on here have interests in music beyond Classic Rock, but after all, this is a CR site so that's the emphasis.

infidel I was joking hence the Actually these days on CRF2 we have a more mixed crowd with plenty of other tastes but back in the day this site was full of people who thought any band that came out after 1980 sucked and anything prior to 1956 wasn't worth listening too. nice ramble who am I? Wayne?
