This week’s overrated/underrated series is over bands. I am sure there will be plently of people who disaggree but then again…doesn’t that fit into the definition of overrated? So comment back, tell me who you think is most overrated/underrated and what you think of my selections.
OVERRATED- Beastie Boys
Wow I really think I could make millions of dollars in a music career with absolutely no talent. I base this off of the Beastie Boys. There isn’t another band out there that gives me an instant head ache the second they come on the radio. There isn’t real music, there is no singing, the rapping is nothing but yelling into a mic about random things. The lyrics are just awful. I really don’t understand how this band has done so well in the past.
RUNNER UP- TIE- U2 / AC/DC
I just never saw the appeal. They have some talent and they do a little singing. But something just doesn’t click. Both are lacking in areas. First with AC/DC- some bands pull off the “guy sings with screeching high voice” I don’t think it works for AC/DC. U2- The band just doesn’t work and its only because of Bono. Bono is just plain awful. His voice sound horrible, his lyrics are bad, and when you have to sing “Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah” for filler…you’ve just become an overrated band.
UNDERRATED- The Living End
Who?…My point exactly. The Living End is an Australian Rockabily band. They are one of the top 5 rock bands in Australia and some of the most taleneted musicians around. Their lead guitarist produces some of the most talented songs while singing over it all. The bassist plays an upright bass which he uses for more than just playing music. He balances on top of it while playing. The whole band produces good rock music with just a different unique sounds to their own
