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.

"Since everyone else is telling you food, try out some foil pack cooking. It's really difficult to screw up, and you can make all your meals before hand. Just grab a packet, burry in redhot coals, when you can smell it, it's time to eat."
