Default Most overrated bands/songs/genre/etc.

Here you can post all the things music-wise that you believe are overrated and get more attention than they deserve. For me, here are the most overrated genre, artists, and songs in my opinion:

Arctic Monkeys: yes, I know, many of you will hate me for this but I just don't see what's so special about them. P.S. I'm not biased against English people if that's what you think. (Go Simon!)

Rap: yep, it's not music, it's people speaking. Not MUSIC.

American Idiot: I like Green Day a lot, especially BOBD (I know a lot of people think THAT song's overrated) but American Idiot just isn't as good as people think. I personally believe people only like it for the lyrics which are in my view only about 1/3 of what makes a song great.

It is music. Hear that stuff in the backround, well thats music.

Lyrics are 0/5 of what makes a song great. Lyrics are also 1/1 of what makes lyrics of a song great. See what I am saying?

since your so interested in lyrics... have you read the lyrics to any artic monkeys songs? your not exactly going to find a cute little repeated paragraph that girls can sing along with. you will find deep, meaningful, lyrics in which have alot of things to say. take 'fake tales from san francisco' for example. when he wants to say 'your music sucks and your women are ugly' he drops a beautiful line 'is the prove that loves not only blind but deaf'.

ps Inuzuka Skysword is right... take bob dylan and explosion in the sky for example

I heard Paul McCartneys new song the other day, thats pretty overrated, i think most 5 year olds could write a song that simple.
