I don't get why you're all ripping them.  What band hasn't gone through the druggie years?  What band hasn't gotten old?  These guys are old enough to be our grandparents.  I can't see my grandparents putting on a show like these guys do.  Give em some credit.

Jimi Hendrix didn't get old.  Unless you count 27 as old.

Nirvana didn't get old, they just got overplayed.

Yeah, that's my point exactly, thanks for that.

If any of their songs sounded at least a little different maybe they
wouldn't suck. And that's a really big maybe.

Talent according to you. This is a big part. You can't tell me that the millions of fans this band has had world wide since their beginning like them only because they were a fad and it was the "cool" thing to do. They're popular for a reason.

And Angus Young can play the guitar better than you.

Saying a band sucks usually is a very stupid statement.  Try creating music yourself, I guarantee most of you will suck at creating something that lots of people will like (taking away the fact that lots of people will enjoy a band because everyone else does like a flock of sheep/insane marketing etc...).

The longevity of popularity has to account for something. If you don't believe so, then perhaps you ought to find a nice quiet room to spend the rest of your life in where you get to be surrounded by soft toys and brightly colored bits of string.

I don't like her, but thats not to say she SUCKS at singing.  Although didn't she play at one of the half time shows with Aerosmith?  I didn't agree with that.

I'm a musician, I play shows frequently in my college town, and I have enough fans to the point where people know my name. I create music, and I know for a fact all ACDC does is throw 3 or 4 power chords together, put a sick solo in, and call it good. Then people just eat it up.

I get why people like them. All I'm saying is they really aren't that good of musicians. Yeah, Angus Young is good...but he's a good guitarist. I don't think any of them are good musicians.

Okay. College band guy with fans who know is name says ACDC are bad musicians.

I think I'll change my opinion based on this expert testimony.

AC/DC are good entertainers, regardless of musical talent.

They write good songs using limited song-writing skills. (I'm not saying they don't have the skills, but if a simple song sounds good and sells well, why make it a complex song? It's worked for 3 Doors Down as well)
They've been around, what? 30 years now?  They're still touring, still getting well played on the radio (some would argue overplayed), and they're still selling albums.

Apparently they're doing something right.

As for the college musician bashing a band for putting 3 or 4 power chords together, I would really like to hear some of his influences, as he just bashed probably 90% of popular rock out there now.  3 or 4 power chords doesn't make a good song, no, but it does make a radio friendly song.
