Overrated

Why are average bands so overrated?
Just to make my self clear.. I am not talking about One direction or the likes of that girl who sang baby. I mean bands that won't/havent been forgotten.
The Beatles, The Ramones, Nirvana, Greenday... You know what I mean.
The songs are okay, but I would not rave about them!

I started to listen to the Ramones again... I am right now...
"Now I wanna sniff some glue
Now I wanna have somethin' to do
All the kids wanna sniff some glue
All the kids want somethin' to do "
... Very inspirational! :rolleyes:
Why did I ever listen to this!?

So what bands do you think are overrated?
... and what bands aren't talked about enough?

Bands that should have more hype:
Creature feature, Ludo, the blackout, the refused, Hadouken, Missing andy, sick puppies, Depeche Mode, Tori Amos, Billy Talent.

Any artist who entered the industry after 1989 is pretty much overrated.

And don't get me started on (c)rap artists like Jay-Z, Flo Rida, Lil' Wayne, etc. GOD, I F***ING HATE RAP AND HIP-HOP!!!!!!

I feel like Odd Future is overrated (the hype for Goblin was really overrated imo), but I have been enjoying the OF side projects (Earl Sweatshirt, Frank Ocean, etc).

Eh, the Beatles weren't really average. I mean, they were pioneers.

Led Zeppelin was very talented, but I think that their godlike status is totally undeserved.

It is sad how true that is. What is more sad... that statement refers to the majority of bands from that era.

Bands like the Beatles and the Ramones are not overated. Of course they are not virtuose, most of their songs are simple melodies. However thair impact on music is huge. The lyrics of the Ramones look stupid but that's exactly what they were looking for. Most of the blues and old rock songs got stupid lyrics from Chuck Berry to The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC...but thy success to make awesome music with simple things and that's not easy !!!!

I just don't understand why they are/were so inspirational.

Because when they came they were one the first to do this music and have success too !!! Beatles are mainstream actually but in the early 60's it was new.
