    "Ilikethepixies""The Who.

    None of their songs sound good at all to me."

    I'll never get that. I wouldn't consider them underrated because they have alot of good songs that nobody seems to know, unless its Baba O'Reily, My Generation, Behind Blue Eyes, or Wont Get Fooled Again. I actually kind of disagree with FunkyGuy, I don't think they have a divided fanbase at all. I think Townshends songwriting has a song for everyone he has so many different styles. The Who are like The Beatles of harder rock, they have songs that are so creatively made, and not just famous because of good guitar solos(though I love that too) They are just good songs in themselves. I will always love The Who and I think if you really looked into them, you would find yourself liking them too.

    "Angelmessenger1980" "Pink Floyd"

    I have to agree with Funky Guy on this one. Like I said before, you just got to find the right group of songs in their whole library; not just the basics.

    Which leads me to my next point that sometimes people need to know the difference between overrated and overplayed. Their are some bands that, sure they get played alot in stores or on the radio, but that doesn't make them not deserve the credit for making the music. For ex. I currently am kind of tired of listening to ACDC, but I don't think they are a bad band for it, or think they are overrated, they may just be played too much. After a while of not listening I will enjoy hearing the songs again.

    I didn't mean the Who's fanbase is divided, Kriller, I meant public opinion of them is.

    Whoops, that's really what I meant, I didn't mean to use the term fan base.

    Slipknot (they fucking suck)
    Nirvana (go ahead and kill me)
    AC/DC (I never cared for them, now shoot me)

    I wouldn't even consider the Jonas Brothers as a rock band. They are just pop with guitars.

    yeah, U2 is complete garbage.

    The Edge and Bono need to do kind of a murder/suicide kind of thing where they both hold guns to each other's heads and pull the trigger at the same time.

    The other two dudes are cool.

    ^ Radiohead definetely. Early U2 ain't bad, you gotta be in the mood for AC/DC, and Pink FLoyd isn't overrated.

    The band I was in during highschool was overrated. People at school were the ones overrating us.

    Haha.

    To me, the Kings of Leon have GOT to be the most overrated band out there. They couldn't possibly suck anymore.

    I read an article on them in Rolling Stone and it was like they were talking about some different band. When I finally heard them, I was like "Woah, they're just some shitty Creed knockoff"

    Yeah, and bands like Creed were never good anyway. Thier voices make me wanna reach into my ears with a pair of tweezers and pull my ear drums out.

    U2 are a bunch of fools that make poor music
    I have never enjoyed a metallica song, really boring

    I see some people said Oasis too, I think they are awful, they made a few decent songs back in the days of brit pop, but they make lame songs to try and live on
