Re: the most overrated artists of all time

Some have the same reaction to Morrissey.

Morrissey supposed whine was away by Hatful Of Hollow and his voice has improved all the time imo. Dylan's voice has just got worse and worse. I don't think Dylan is overated myself but i can understand why some people don't like him.

Dylans' voice of sandpaper and glue is addictive

While I'm horrified by the inclusion of Jeff Buckley, all is forgiven by the inclusion of U2. :D

I don't like polls like this because the title is spoken like fact and the content is opinion based. No band is overrated, it boils down to the commercialism they receive.

a) I don't see a poll here

b) You yourself are contradicting yourself with your opinions in a factual style

c) Of course some bands are overrated, you mention commercialism (which suggests overplayed) - The poster was on about overrated.

d) I don't like what you type

Re: the most overrated artists of all time

I meant post, not poll, my opinion is that of my own it is not fact and I am not putting in such manner to suggest that it is factual. No band is overrated it comes down to personal opinion, like most decisions or perferences in life. Just because you feel a band is overated doesn't mean that very band is overrated. It's funny how you changed your fourth point from "I don't like you" to "I don't like what you say". I'm not vaguely interested in what you think of me.

To say no band is overrated is complete nonsense. Overated means To overestimate the merits of something or to rate too highly. When a human being says something do they have to qualify everything they say by saying "In my opinion"? or "in your opinion"? It goes without saying really.

I have no idea what your problem is.

Your argument is really weak.

I changed what I said as I didn't want to be personal towards you.

Re: the most overrated artists of all time

Who decides what is overrated and what isn't? It's personal opinion, I could turn around and say to you that I think Belle and Sebastian are overrated, you could say, you're wrong and they're not overrated. Who is right and who is wrong? It comes down to opinion like most things in life. I don't see how stating the obvious is weak? I could say Nirvana is overrated and then two other people say they were never fully acknowledged, who is right and who is wrong? No one, because it is down to personal opinion. You wouldn't of made it personal, I don't know you and you don't know me personally, so I won't lose any sleep over you disliking me or my opinions.

It does, but you were stating it as though it was fact. If three billion people said Kasabian were overrated does that mean they are overrated? No, it doesn't it mean that Kasabian are overrated it means that those three billion people think they are overrated.

and there lies the problem you have....


It is so obvious that when someone says something like an artist is overrated that it is an opinion that it does not even need to be uttered. However, there is sometimes something called a mass concensus of critical opinion that goes against what I have just said... think about it...

I agree that Bob Dylan is massively overrated, what do you think?

However there are certain facts, One being that your points here are pointless.

Interesting discussion and I haven't time to read other posts so apologies if I'm covering old ground.
What I think this is getting at is singers/bands/artists who are generally critically acclaimed, and there are quite a few of them. This would include people like Bob Dylan, The Fall, David Bowie, PJ Harvey, Blondie, Beck, the Stone Roses, Nirvana, the Smiths (but not solo Morrissey), Radiohead etc. Artisis who have a body of work which, so the music journalists would have us believe, is pretty much beyond criticism...

Re: the most overrated artists of all time

Wow, what a great thread of stupid (and often uninformed) opinions that mean nothing to anyone. Lets make a thread about underrated artists and we will see all of these supposed overrated bands be reposted.
