Ok, not trying to make anyone upset but, to me there are bands that I think are way overrated or that I just don't get. So here they are: 1. The greatful dead To me they just sound like 60's hippie music. I've been to one of their concerts and was bored out of my mind. The music was played well but the music itself was so lacking plus the smell of petchuili oil. I only lasted about an hour and left. 2. The Dave Matthew's band. Another band that I just don' t get. I know they are popular but do not know why. 3. Coldplay Another band with long droning songs that to me are just boring. It's like they are trying to be the new U2 plus I know they ripped off a song by Joe Satriani and were sued by him. I think they came to a settlement. 4. U2 Too political for me and a lot of their songs sound so much alike. I wanna tell them write something new! 5.Metalica Now I like metal but these guys have really gotten boring to me and although their music is cool for the most part I really miss hot guitar playing. Kirk is good but for someone who's was a student of Joe Satriani's you'd think he would be a much better player and he is not. The kid in the garage band down the street plays better than him. These are just some the bands that I thought of off the top of my head. So what do you think? Who are the bands that you think are overrated and why? Please post your list.
