Glad to see two guys agree with me on that one...

I mean, Nirvana is/was an incredible band that was part of a major scene responsible for creating a new generation (YES, that means your precious little Linkin Park too), but they surely do not deserve all the press...

Hey Dan... Don't even attempt to deny that your little Linkin Park wasn't in some way influenced by my Pearl Jam or other bands of that era...

Nirvana was incredible and they had a HUGE impact on the music scene, is anyone old enough to remember the crap that was on the radio pre-nirvana?? I think I will change my answer from Puff P-Diddy Daddy to EVERYTHING on MTV...well thats if and when they play a music vid.

OkOkOk

Let me address some issues here first.

I dont think that being "over-rated" necessarily means "Bad".

Most of the bands that I think are "Over-Rated" are not bad bands, they wrote good music and were (in some cases) good musicians im sure, they just get more CREDIT than what they probobly should get,

 

1. Nirvana. Personally I dont think that it was Nirvana that cause the change from air-rock to alternative/grunge. Sure, they may have brought the scene to the masses, but if they didnt come along I think that the industry would have gotten another north-west grunge band and made it famous. There are alot more and better grunge/alternative bands from that time that were before Nirvana, they just didnt get picked by the Orwell-like machine that is the record industry.

2. Metallica. I dont like people that say "OMGAWWD METALLIKA ROCKS TEH SOCKS TEH R TEH BEESSST METAL BAND EVERZ", Then you ask them to name another metal band and they give you a blank stare. Are they awsome? Hell yeah. Can they play great? Hell yeah. Are they the best metal act out there? Not really.

3. ACDC. Take what I just said up there, and change Metallica to AC/DC, and Metal to Hard/Classic rock.

 The only reason that i started listening to AC/DC was the quitar player with his "hard rock sieziers". I like a few of thier songs. I know she is not a band, but i think Brittany Spears is THE MOST over-rated person in the industry. She doesn't even sing her songs for real. When she performs, it is a recording and she mouths it. I like 311's remake of "The Love Song", but it just isn't the same as when The Cure sang it.^^ Nirvana would have been a great band, but Kurt had major problems. I think that radio head was over-rated, but i never was into thier type of songs, so i guess that makes it different. They were rated in the top 5 greatest songs by MTV or something.

i agree with everything you just said      i kinda miss nirvana...

and wtf is wrong with that. the only part of ac/dc thats over rated is angus young. everybody thinks hes the best guitar player but hes not that good at all. i can play a lot of his solos and if i wanted to i could figure them all out. he uses the same scale in every solo.

nirvana is the most over rated band. kirk kobane didnt do **edited**. he wasnt a musical genius, he wasnt a good guitar player, and he wasnt a good song writer. he was a piece of **edited** in the road. he sucks, nirvana sucks, and grunge sucks.

led zepplin is definatly the most over rated band.... sure they make good music and all.. but they are way over rated.... and for people in this thread, i dont think the point of this thread is 'what music don't you like' ,over rated doesn't mean that.....

no one can say a band is overated. Everyone has their own opinion about music. Someone that doesnt like rap doesnt like rap. what makes you think they will like puff daddy. they probably have never heard his music. you get the idea.

More bands were part of the whole grunge movement and don't get enough credit for it... Pearl Jam accomplished 10x more musically then Nirvana (even during that time... you can say what you want, but Ten puts Nevermind to shame musically)... Both of those bands were the major figures... Others like Soundgarden, Busch, etc should get more too...

As far as Cobain being a great guitarist, he wasn't and in no way deserved to be high up on Rolling Stone's "Greatest Guitarists" list... As a lyricist, he was one of the best, but as a guitarist, Mike McCready mops the floor with him...

I love that whole era... I'll say it again, Nirvana is one of my favorite bands, but is incredibly over-rated...
