Of course but they aren't treated reverentially by other musicians who have been influenced by them. Would you disagree with me that influence and quality are usually correlated?

Hang on a second. Before I respond, I want to finish this line of thought. Can you give me the name of a current artist who you think is terrible?

Personal opinion isn't synonymous with fact. I was discussing The Smiths with someone the other day and they said any band in the world is better than them because he hates them. How does that work? If I hated Led Zep I'd just say I don't like them, I wouldn't say they are awful because that is obviously not true, awful would be someone like LMFAO.

Would you at that point decide that they're somehow good? If people told you that they were influential, would you suddenly regard them as worthwhile?
