My point, however, was that sometimes people confused saying that with hatred. I don't hate Nirvana any more, or any less, over it. However, I think that pointing out they were a decent/good band that was treated like it was monumentally good like say - Pink Floyd - is annoying. Since Nirvana has a lot less material, a lot less ambition, a lot less originality, and a lot more filler. Doesn't stop me from appreciating them.

Saying a band is overrated is not the same thing as saying they're bad. You can still like Nirvana while acknowledging that they're overrated. I bet even they thought that they were overrated.

I think nirvana is rather good, but I do think they are overrated.
As in: There's other bands that I think are better, that don't get as much credit.

Well, that's very closed-minded of you. It's a shame.

Because it expands your horizons and influences. It saddens me that you allow others to tell you what to like.

I'm not sure you really understand the business of music.

In any event, you're welcome to listen to whatever you want however you want to, but I imagine you'll have a difficult time connecting with the other users of this website if you allow your interests to remain limited.

I think a number of those artists are very good at what they do, although it is not personally what I enjoy.

Who do you dislike most?
