As you can see it doesn't take much for me to want to listen to something other than Queen

Five Live Yardbirds is okay. Pretty much everything after the big three (Clapton, Beck and Page) left has been devoid of talented songwriting. They just retained fans because of the name.

Yeah, why are The Yardbirds even still together? Should we even call it The Yardbirds? It's just the rhythm guitarist and drummer now of the original members.

They don't even have Keith Relf anymore, he left for Renaissance and then he got freaking electrocuted to death. Seriously whats the point in having a "reunion" when it's only 2 original members who didn't contribute much anyway?

You have to get Roger the Engineer. Sometimes just credited as an eponymous (self0titled) album.

Also any live stuff from the 60's or early 70's is pretty damn good.

Honestly, I find Metallica to be overrated. The dedication of their fans though, its quite admirable. They like to rip on them and talk about how much they suck now, but go to sell out shows and always buy the new album even if they dont really like it! Lets see...I'll also say Dave Matthews Band is overrated.

What about The Beach Boys? Pet Sounds might just be the most overrated album of all time.

An opinion I voiced a very, very long time ago. What's unique about The Beach Boys is that they only became critically acclaimed years and years after they lost their popularity, as if to say, "We know Dennis is dead and Brian is crazy, so we're going to start force-feeding their shit down our readers' throats." They are, to date, one of the worst acts to be compared to the Beatles. Despite the clear lack of musical ability (of any of the Beach Boys) and their pithy songwriting, I am consistently reminded of how high their shitpile rose. To my everlasting dismay, I regularly see articles like "Why Brian Wilson Is So Great" and "Let's Hold Hands and Suck His Cock Together." And it's about fuckin' time someone has the sense to pull these people's inflated heads outta their asses.
