    i presume you mean critically overrated because they’re quite popular. I got stuck watching them at Reading festival when that save rock n roll album came out and they sucked so bad live, their performance was dull and the music wasn’t even catchy, it was shambolic and surely pop music is not supposed to be that. You come over like you’re trying to be contrarian more than anything

    you should know me better than that by now
    Fall Out Boy are awesome; once they broke free of their emo confines, they got down a couple of albums with some great classic songwriting, experimented with soul and disco, whilst retaining their edge. Patrick Stump is a great singer, and Pete Wentz a witty lyricist. I've seen them live and yeah it wasn't particularly impressive
    this is probably my fave FOB song:



    this one's also good:



    and this is a riot:



    this one has a stomping 80s swagger:



    granted they are often cheesy and I can see why they're hateable - I used to hate them too before I got into them - but I think their talent is undeniable

    I've never cared for Orianthi. She's a sloppy guitarist and a weak vocalist. Either she's wearing a wig or some really bad hair extensions. Nita Strauss is a hundred times better than her.

    Richie Sambora was fired from Bon Jovi because of his drug and alcohol use. I read somewhere that he showed up drunk to a RSO concert in Australia.
    He and Orianthi started their show ridiculously late and they pissed off the whole crowd. I thought only Rihanna and Justin Bieber did that. Some people have no respect for their fans.

    Not even the punk or funk stuff? I know you're not into hip hop, but the other directions they went into is still really good too.

    Neither am I. Never will I ever say they're not great or disregard what they've done for music, but other than a few select songs I'm not really a massive fan.

    I find them a boring chore to listen to.

    They also have a lot of obnoxious songs such as Intergalactic.

    I loved those guys when I was a teenager, but I eventually lost interest. I still think they were cool in their time, though. And Paul's Boutique is kind of amazing.

    I was way into "aglio e olio" at one point a long time ago. Beasties definitely have good songs here and there (gratitude, so whatcha want, looking down the barrel of a gun) and are best when they are a live band, but 80% just doesn't work for me.

    I don't dislike them. They just never did a lot for me.

    i associate "intergalactic" with having a stupid amount of fun during the summer before senior year of high school, so i enjoy it. never cared for them before, and honestly "sure shot" and "sabotage" make me wince.

    so whatever. but what i have learned is when someone says they don't like something here (re: the whole point of this thread in a roundabout way), no one is going to change their mind after you post a string of youtube vids that you happen to like. in fact, chances are the user you're responding to won't bother watching a single one. that's my experience, anyway.

    I don't really care if people like the Beastie Boys or not, but I definitely think they were fantastic, especially once you look past the singles (which I also enjoy).

    Glenn Hughes is the most gifted vocalist and songwriter to front Black Sabbath, even if The Seventh Star isn't their best album (in the top ten for sure). And his solo albums blow away most of Ozzy and Dio's.

    no way. artangels is so good.

    foster the people. i don't know where to put them here. i really like them, especially "sit next to me."

    "pumped up kicks" still rules.

    Agree to disagree on that one. For me, it's easily one of the most overrated albums in the last few years. Tries too hard in so many different directions and leaves me with a flat experience.

    Grimes was never “good”. That’s my take.

    Also just found out this week that her her and Elon Musk were dating. Had no idea.

    This probably isn’t controversial to people here but it is to me, I randomly listened to Korn ‘freak on a leash’ on a Spotify radio channel and I actually really like it, it has a great bass line. Honestly I’ve just dismissed nu-metal without actually listening to most of it.

    one thing that will be controversial is that I bought a best of Smashing Pumpkins CD rotten apples on the basis of how much so many people on here love them, great songs, horrible horrible voice. Does his voice grow on you over time?

    Hahaha. His voice is .. unique. Guess it's like a Geddy Lee kind of thing.

    i love Rush though although I could see how his voice can annoy. His voice just seems to go with the music

    Most everyone did as well, I believe.

    Id be a big SP fan... if Billy Corgan wasn't the singer. Can't stand his voice. The music is great though.

    Korn is far from a "bad" band. They've definitely got some cool stuff on their discography. They seem to get hate/dismissed due to the nu metal tag and being all over TRL back in the day.

    I can't think for a moment in a Smashing Pumpkins without Corgan's voice. To me, it's a fundamental aspect of the band's sound.

    Agreed. Not the most consistent band, but plenty of good songs throughout, especially up through 1999.

    The Beastie Boys instrumental album/compilation(?) is pretty solid.

    Korn has some interesting music, though some songs are a bit intense. This is my favorite video by them (caution advised, it's a bit graphic).

    Anyone else kinda love their 2nd untitled album produced by none other than Atticus Ross?

    Like any Korn album the lyrics can be cringy but it's an interesting sound ... for them at least.
