I wasn't crazy about Metallica's last few albums. But their earlier stuff (Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning, And Justice for All) are phenomenal. When I was younger, all my friends loved Metallica and I could never figure out why. It took me quite a while to get into them.

Black was the beginning of the end and Reload was a load of shit!! Ride the lightning is one of my all time favs
I know a lot of long-time Metallica fans hated the Black album because that was the point where the band started selling out. But I do love that album. Load and Reload are OK but nothing great. I haven't liked anything since.

What about the album they did with Lou Reed? I heard he got death threats from Metallica fans they hated it so much.

That album is really, REALLY bad.

I'm going to catch hell for a couple of these, but here goes:

Ozzy is way over-rated. He has sucked since Randy Rhodes died.

The Rolling Stones...I just don't get it.

Bob Dylan...I can't understand anything he says.

The Doors

Elton John


On the flip side, one of my favorite bands of the 80's that was way ahead of their time was Blondie

Didn't they do an album with Mannheim Steamroller or the TSO or something?

Now here's a subject I can really get on board with, especially because the buck stops rolling right on their fans' heads......I'll give my top 3.

1) Kid Rock - Boy, oh boy is this guy mediocre, and in every genre to boot. As if being overrated wasn't bad enough, he's also a shameless copycat who samples quality songs only to insert his own meaningless drivel into them. At least he clued everyone in to his wannabe status by inserting the word "Rock" into his name, and as everyone with brains knows, if you have the word "rock" in your name it means you don't rock. The biggest insult to me was during a USO tour, when he and 2 other celebrities sat and listened to music performed by the troops, and then gave them their opinions. Kid Fuck, being the fuck that he is, told one particular group "On a real level, you suck," which is the biggest case of pot-and-the-kettle syndrome I've ever seen. Don't believe me? Just follow the link: https://youtu.be/9AMiyID2_PE?t=154 Fuck this guy.

2) Poison - Speaking of names that clue you in, these guys decided to go literal with theirs. And I'm not kidding, you're not going to toxify a wave of music much quicker than these guys did. "Wait a minute!" you say.....am I blaming the death of hair metal on Poison? Yes....I am. Not to say that hair metal bands were always epic, but they had plenty of bright spots amongst them, only to have a slew of mediocre knock-offs attempt to emulate their success. So, the first time I saw these "guys":

Overrated bands/artists - Page 4 Poison-Look-What-the-Cat-Dragged-In

I remember thinking "Oh great, another faux-metal group with even bigger hair, freakier looks, and blander music.....I hope they die." But alas, they didn't crash fast enough and only got more popular, so to me they looked like the final festering sore on an already bloated style of music. And as the most appropriately named band of all-time, I feel they definitely "Poisoned" rock music as we knew it. Look at what shit the cat dragged in, indeed.

3) Hinder - Yeah, I know these guys basically aren't around anymore, but the fact they enjoyed any form of notoriety at all makes me want to puke in my hat. And go figure, they also picked a highly appropriate name that should've been a sign to everyone. Of course, they sounded an awful lot like the most popular band of that time period, Nickelback, but didn't bother themselves with making any good songs. Were they a "Hinderance" to rock music of the time? I'd say they were definitely the biggest boat anchor of their day, and like others before them, marked the decline in a particular phase of rock. Thank God they were brief, so I can be too.

So, those are the big ones for me, even though I have a bunch of honorable mentions, with the big difference being these bands actually put out some epic songs:

Nirvana - Oh, they were a great band, but I actually prefer Foo Fighters, who I believe have eclipsed them since.
Led Zeppelin - Another great band, but for some reason I really don't like Robert Plant's voice, so it ruins otherwise quality music for me. Sure you could say "But Bob Dylan had an awful voice," and that would be true, but no one ever claimed he had a even a good voice, let alone a great one.
Guns N' Roses - Just like Plant, Axel Rose's voice can really hit some grating notes in my ear canal, and somewhat spoil epic rock music.
Rage Against the Machine - More incredible rockers who only drop points on lyrical/vocal content, with just a little too much "Raging" for my tastes. Their lyrics can get repetitive, and sometimes I get burnt out hearing all about how much our government sucks, and our world's fucked up. Plus, like Foo Fighters to Nirvana, I prefer Audioslave.

Study Links Drinking While Pregnant to Being at Kid Rock Concert

Quote :
ROCHESTER, MN—A comprehensive five-year study conducted by researchers at the Mayo Clinic has identified a strong link between heavy drinking during pregnancy and attending a public performance by Detroit-based rap-rocker Kid Rock, officials confirmed Wednesday. “Our survey found that expectant mothers who consumed hard liquor were far more likely to be at a Kid Rock concert than a control group who did not drink,” said Dr. Lawrence Talmage, whose research also indicated that 78.3 percent of women who drank to intoxication while pregnant were wearing shredded T-shirts and riding atop the presumed father’s shoulders during encores of “All Summer Long” and “Bawitdaba.” “Across all three trimesters, drinking three or more alcoholic beverages in less than an hour was highly correlated with going backstage at a Kid Rock show and then getting into a fistfight with another woman in the parking lot.” The study also suggested that combining recreational drug use with drinking during pregnancy made women twice as likely to scream “Sign my titty!” outside the band’s tour bus.

Their best satire is when I can't tell if they're making shit up or not.

The Beatles, they suck, and I don't really like any of their songs.

I grew up a 90's metal head listening to metallica / megadeth / pantera / ozzy /etc, and didn't register beatles as 'rock'

metallica's newest stuff (basically anything after the black album) was terrible. Old metallica was awesome though

Not that I needed validation on anything, but I just stumbled onto a Ronnie James Dio quote on Youtube, and he basically felt the same way I did. Classic quote: "That should be an emblem somewhere, you know? 'Poison killed everything (metal).' Things that come out and wear make up, what's that all about? That's not metal....sorry it's just not." Go Ronnie, wherever you are!

I've always thought Poison, Kiss, and Motley Crue were extremely overrated.

i dont think it has anything to do with their make-up......their music itself was not metal.....not even close. i think a lot of hair bands incorrectly get labeled metal bands

Another great video about overrated rock bands, and this time the featured band's leader actually hates his own biggest hit.



How can you be more overrated than a band that KNOWS it's overrated? These guys win.
