The ten most overrated bands in music history.
I'm not quite done being bitchy about unjustified cultural phenomenons. Now it's time for the music industry to own up to all of the overrated horse shit they've churned out over time.

Here are the ten most overrated bands in music history, in no particular order:

10. Nirvana
9. Nirvana
8. Nirvana
7. Nirvana
6. Nirvana
5. Nirvana
4. Nirvana
3. Nirvana
2. Nirvana
1. Nirvana

Dishonorable Mention: Nirvana, Nirvana and Nirvana.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by.
With bright knives He releaseth my soul.
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places.
He converteth me to lamb cutlets,
For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger.
When cometh the day we lowly ones,
Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
Master the art of karate,
Lo, we shall rise up,
And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water.

Re: The ten most overrated bands in music history.
Oh, and I almost forgot about KID ROCK.

It still baffles the mind as to how a common thug from inner city Detroit is now a fucking rock/country star. He did a song with INSANE CLOWN POSSE for fuck's sake!

I'd also like to submit Werewolves of Sweet Home Alabama (aka "All Summer Long") as the one of the most overrated songs of all time.

Re: The ten most overrated bands in music history.
I'd agree about Nirvana. I was in my early 20s when 'grunge' exploded onto the world. I thought there was nothing new or original about them at all there were tons of sh*tty bands around then that cranked up the distortion on their pedals to hide their utter lack of guitar-playing ability and had the same sort of gutteral (or whining) vocals in lieu of any singing ability.

They had one fairly catchy song that grabbed the zeitgeist at the time (Smells like Teen Spirit) that was tolerable, the rest was utter crap.

That cover of the Bowie song was horrible but it certainly revealed what a gawd-awful singer Cobain was - over-emoted, pronounced certain words strangely, cracked his voice too much etc.

That, and their lyrics are atrocious.

Having said that, I'd have to include Pearl Jam. Again, one tolerable song - Jeremy - and the rest were crap (though at least unlike Cobain the guy could sing).

Can I get a DEF LEPPARD up in here?

Or perhaps they should go under "Biggest Sellout Band" instead?

Yeah, I also love how some of the biggest chart-topping singles ever are covers/rip-offs of older tunes.

It's like the music industry is trying to be unoriginal and turn out shitty music.

Sorry, but I'm afraid that the answer is YES.

"Generation X" turned out some of the worst music I've ever heard, and "Generation Y" isn't doing much better.

The airwaves are now dominated by garbage like Nickelback and by one-hit-wonders like Soulja Boy... and so-called "classic rock" stations have the nerve to play bullshit like Smells Like Teen Spirit and Come As You Are.

very average muscians...average songwriters, below average singing/ harmonies.

anyone that thinks the beatles are the most overated band in history, needs to try and write a song like Eleanor Rigby or A Day iN The Life, and then get back to me.
