    Most overrated band in rock history?

    My vote goes for the Rolling Stones. I have seen them live twice and they were absolutely horrible each time. I think that if you take the best songs off of all their albums you could make two good albums thats it, they have released some very weak albums and songs in my opinion.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Both of yous is crazy I say, crazy.

    I'll admit that the Stones aren't very good live, but they have a ton of great albums (although none since 1978's some girls)

    And the Beatles, well if you don't like them there's not much I can say.

    Maybe it's a generational thing. How old are you guys?

    BTW- My vote goes for Queen- They have maybe 5 good songs.

    I think Led Zeppelin is overrated too, and I'm sure I'll get pounded for that.

    Oh both of you please.

    Without the Beatles it's doo-wop and Frankie Vallie.

    The Stones are a great studio band from the 60's and the 70's... those other guys are pitchmen for a lifestyle commercial.

    Overrated?

    Let's start with Europes favorite Queen.

    Yes, you may not personally *like* their music, but good grief you have to give the Beatles respect for what they did.

    My two votes: U2 and Bruce Springsteen (yes, I know, not a band, but i still think he's grossly overrated.)

    U2, I even like them...but, particularly recently, their stuff just seems formulaic and by-the-numbers. Half of the Joshua Tree was good, Achtung baby was killer, and some of their other albums varied from average to pretty good...but they are simply not one of the best bands of all time.

    Springsteen...well, if the man has written a song containing more than three chords, I haven't heard it yet.

    C'mon guys...

    Queen has some great songs that weren't "radio-ready", especially in their early albums. (You don't have to agree with the lifestyle...we're all Manly Men here ).

    Rolling Stones and Beatles are classic, can't mess with classic.
    (I'll admit She Loves You and other "early" Beatles make me want to puke nowadays).

    Blink (and their clones) is great stuff -- just fun (enjoy it).

    My vote:
    Nirvana

    Kurt Gobain doesn't die and they're nothing.
    (I still like some of their songs).

    Heck, if only Queen were MORE gay. They did just enough to be totally uninteresting, which is aesthetic death.
