If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

I thought so too, but then I heard Exile on Main St. One of the greatest ****ing albums ever. Also, to be honest, Zeppelin doesn't deserve to be included in the same sentence as The Beatles, The Who and The Rolling Stones. I love Led Zeppelin but in terms of songwriting, The former three piss all over them.

Agreed even though I really like them.

Actually Bruce saved Rock and Roll from disco.

The Joshua Tree is a beautiful album.


I would add:

Syd Barrett
Sublime

Also I'm adding Lil Wayne. I'm tired about hearing how great you are at various things please shut the **** up.

Heres the thing, certain bands you mentioned, I agree, are overrated, yet some bands I hear about them being overrated more than I hear people build praise upon them.


Heres an example, you listed Nirvana (might I add I disagree entirely with your claims that they become another AIC or Soundgarden if Kurt didnt die. The difference is that Cobain not only was a FAR superior songwriter, but had a much more eclectic musical taste that showed through in his music, which I find often seperates him from those grunge bands that pandered to the classic rock Gods. Im not saying he was original, but at least when he ripped off bands they were somewhat underground and not as dated, as opposed to Soundgarden re-doing Black Sabbath with lamer riffs), back to the point, I hear more about Nirvana being overrated than people talking about how great they were. Almost every person I've met that likes indie hates them, same for punk, metal, new wave, etc. The only ones that do (besides me) are stupid high school kids that hate on rap and are too bored by classic rock, kids I don't even associate with. Yet if you ask me, they're a pretty good indie band that got put in the wrong place at the wrong time, which has severely tarnished what the true heart of the band is.


But what I mean is, everything that's "rated" is also considered "overrated", as long as theres just one person who doesn't hold a band/album in as high regards as another. So everything in the entire music industry since the dawn of time is both "overrated" and yet "underrated" at the same time.
