Inspired by Cody's Most Underrated Album thread. At the risk of having the whole thing turn into a big clusterf*ck flamewar, I'd like to hear about what bands/artists/albums you think are totally overrated. I've read posts like this on other sites and it seems like people can get very defensive about their favorite artists/albums, so lets keep it civil here.

Gotta go with the Stones. I like some of their stuff. I really do. But I'm not sure all the worship is justified.

Guess I should add my .02...have to go with KISS, for basically those same reasons. They're alright, but some people absolutely worship them as the be all-end all of rock and roll, and I don't get it.

Led Zepplin - never could get into them.  Felt his singing was on par with someone shoving their fist up a cats ass

Nirvana and U2....

basically anything from the 80's or 90's...

Ya, the 90's doesn't seem to have been a very good decade for music, or a lot of things.

I would have to heartily agree with Tom and Kurt. I'd also like to add The Beatles. Before anybody goes nuts on me here, I think that too many people cover their songs, and too many people swear allegiance to them because it's the thing to do. They had a lot of great songs, and I enjoy their music, but I feel as though they are put on a pedestal far too often.

beautiful. Now if ONLY my band would listen to you...

Slash. Completely overrated.

Slash as a solo artist? or Slash as a guitarist in general? or is it that the two most famous bands he was in (G 'n' R and Velvet Revolver) are overrated?

Yes.

I mean Slash as a guitarist. Especially among high school kids. They treat Slash like a god. 

To each his own... I happen to like Guns and Roses and Velvet Revolver. Still, I can totally understand what you mean about High School kids. Slash isn't the best guitarist ever or anything but I do like a lot of the music he was involved with.

Calling All Sculptures and Artists

Okay I would like to sculpt a model of this sculpture because I cant find one online within my price range. I consider myself to have bit of artistic ability and have always admired the Aztec/ Mesoamerican culture. And suggestions on how to go about sculpting this or even what kind of clay to purchase would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link with some photos of the statue …See More
