Default Am I Really The Only One?

Who finds Metallica, Nirvana, Oasis, and Modest Mouse, INCREDIBLY OVERRATED?

lets think about this for a bit,

Metallica = everything from 80s sounds exactly the same, everything after is just plain crap. very very bland.

Nirvana = Bleach - Decent
Nevermind - Amazing
In Utero - Good
Overall they really werent anywhere near as good as people think.

Oasis = everything sounds exactly the same after Definitely Maybe and WTS(MG) and even those albums arent that great, just good.

Modest Mouse = also another very bland band, everything besides their 2004 release was not good at all.

How are Modest Mouse bland? Good News for People Who Love Bad News isn't even close to being their best calling it their only good album is completely laughable.

I dunno I don't hear people rave about Modest Mouse much, but they have been playing for a while and have not been afraid of changing things which i respect. I'm not really a fan of any of those bands and have not listened to a bunch, so I can't really make claims of how overrated they are.

damnit rave on then
a music still a nazi

Band's who achieve a certain amount of success will always garner an overated tag. In the case of Metallica I agree a little. I listen to lots of Metal bands instead of them, yet growing up they were my favourite band for a few years. As for bands like Nirvana and Oasis, their albums hit at the right time regarding the populace although Bleach is far superior to Nevermind IMO.

I wouldn't call Modest Mouse bland, more like an experiment to see how annoying music can possibly get.

I certainly wouldn't call Nirvana bland, I was obsessed with them for a time, and they're still one of my favorite bands. I also love a lot of old Metallica.

I do however agree completely about Oasis. Not only are they bland, I think of Oasis as being somewhat of the best way to measure music quality. Through extensive scientific research, it has been proven that Oasis make the most average music known to mankind. They are the very definition of average.

So when it comes to determining weither something is good or not I think of it this way, is it better than Oasis? If so its good, if not its bad.

Nirvana & Metallica-Overrated maybe but w/e...Last thing i care about is "xxx magazine naming them the best band ever/yyy group giving them the greatest band status/zzz website listing them in the top 10 bands of all time". Let them have the status they deserve/don't deserve(whatever you want to take it as) as long as it really doesn't affect me.
I enjoyed listening to their stuff and its the only thing that matters. All these overrated sentimental bullsh!t belongs in the dustbin for me.

Oasis-Overrated, they are ok.(have a few awesome songs but thats about it)
But as i said, i really don't care whether any band is overrated or not. If i don't like them, i just don't talk about them.

Modest mouse-I really don't like them at all...but thats my opinion. No comments here.

Nirvana - still like them, great band

Oasis - listening to one of their albums really was the most boring musical event of my life

Modest Mouse - pretty good band, nothing "wrong" with them, just never listen to them anymore.

Metallica - never cared for them, but I haven't really heard a lot (and have no intention to), so no comment.

Cant believe people call Modest Mouse overrated. They're pretty much underrated over on this side of the pond.

They're still hyped a lot in most indie circuits though.

As mentioned already - all bands that have peaked in popularity in whatever genre they are associated with always be considered overrated. The key is to look beyond how over rated they are & just listen to their music. If you like it, then great - if you don't, then come up with another valid explanation than just being over rated.
