    Re: 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.
    Of all the bands out there I can't believe you singled out the greatest rock band of all-time. Sure they've been lame for the last 15 years but the 30 before that will be unsurpassed. I won't even go into this it's someone's opinion and their right to feel that way.

    My vote goes to either "Phish" or The Dave Matthews Band. Flame away.

    Overrated?

    Journey?

    Boston?

    T Rex?

    The Dead?

    Phish?

    Dave Mathews?

    Probably.

    Overrated?

    Garth Brooks?

    Fer sure man... CCR too.

    And Elvis too...
    Elvis? Now you've crossed the line. Was Boston ever "rated?" Tom Scholz designed guitar pedals for garsh sakes. Nerd.

    Friend of mine knows a guy who is a persona star Valet, gets called for 2-3 week gigs with the stars.

    Anyway, he's on tour with Van Halen and apparently Eddie has to fly in his own plane. the rest of the band is clean, but Eddie is puffing cigs and still drinking on his own plane with Wolfy in tow. Wolfy apparently is not as svelt as daddy was during the Carter era.

    Nirvana enabled MTV to drive away from pop... they and their ilk of non conformists killed both Hair Metal and MTV Videos.

    It's not so much that style of music (I like Pearl Jam,SoundGarden and Nirvana et al). It's just I think they get way over rated.

    EDIT: While I do love me Heavy Metal, anything speeding the early demise of the likes of Poison is a good thing.

    Nothing wrong with that--at least he was adventurous. Which is about ten times more than you could say for Keith Richards.

    Monkey Man on a resume is pretty nifty IMO.

    S'alright.

    It's also one riff out of...eh, how many songs? Hundreds? thousands? I just don't like him much. But i can see why people do dig the Stones, it's why I didn't include the band as a whole as "overrated". But I certainly think Keith Richards is.

    Same way people think Ringo was a good drummer.

    Are you talking about Elvis?

    I know peanut butter and bacon sandwiches sound pretty revolutionary, and that baby blue sequined jumpsuit, well enuff said, but come on if it wasn't for Elvis's guitar player (who was a god) he'd have had almost no impact on popular music IMO.

    Musically speaking, the competiton between Keith and Elvis isn't even close, at least in terms of actually writing songs. I'll admit, Elvis has great voice, but he didn't write most of his songs.

    The entire genre is WAY over-rated.

    Noooo! The greatest rythym guitarist of all-time wasn't creative or adventorous? (not sure what that means as it applies to guitar styles) He defined the role in guitar rock bands. Is it because he didn't bust out bow or popularize the hammer method like Eddie V? Just because he looks like he's about to fall over doesn't mean he can't play.

    So far I've seen the Stones, Queen, The Dead, and Nirvana as overrated bands.

    There simply has got to be better examples than that, my God I am shocked. I need to leave this thread for good now.

    The Beatles are the greatest rock band ever hands down. The Beatles could have done things the way the Stones did but the Stones could not have done the Beatle thing.
