There are a lot of obvious overrated bands out there. I'm not talking about commercial flavor of the month crap, I'm talking about the ones who've had long lasting careers and are still at it. Bands that people I actually know and respect enjoy.

Remember: Assholes are like opinions, everybody takes a dump. So take it easy.

My top 5...
ELVIS COSTELLO - I can't think of another musician in the history of the world that is more overrated than him. Just awful music, voice, performer. Every time someone has tried to play me the "good stuff" it makes me want to push an old lady out of her wheel chair. I've been to 6 Costello shows. Why? I was paid to be there... and it wasn't enough. Wreckless Eric did the coolest thing. Got him to sign a copy of the Stiff records comp. that they are both pictured on. He put an X through Elvis' face and called him a "wanker." Eric should have sold a ton of records, not Elvis. Another thing that seriously bugs me about him... Why does he have to be interviewed on every music documentary ever made? I don't care what he thinks about Howlin' Wolf, Stax, Black Sabbath, Carl Perkins, Mozart etc. I don't care what Bono thinks either. Both of them are on every doc that comes out now days. Just the fact that he named himself "Elvis Costello" makes him suck. Being in the Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame lost any importance the day they let him in.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - Down home constipated American roots at it's worst. Album after album of "walkin' down a lonesome highway" crap. Yeah "Nebraska" sucks also.

MICHAEL JACKSON - Jackson 5 was not a very important chapter in the Motown history book if you ask me. So let's just jump right into Thriller. Best selling album of all time. Okay. Probably the worst Quincy Jones production of all time. This is such an unimportant record. Stupid songs, lyrics, and dancing. Best thing Thriller had going for it was Vincent Price. Purple Rain kicks Thriller's ass and I still don't consider it very important either.

METALLICA - Whoa! Yup, I said it. Worst rock vocals and drum sounds all on the samealbums. Awesome! Yay-ee-yayyyyyy!!! Clickity clickity clickity!!!

SEX PISTOLS - They sucked. Fashion punk at best.

That's all. Hate away and add some more!

5. Maritime VHF, specifically channel 16, or 156.8 MHz - fuck that guy.

4. The "A" Band - just because it's situated on either side of the H zone of a muscle sarcomere, doesn't mean you're such hot shit.

3. Band used as a verb. As if.

2. Möbius band - o.k. we get it already. "It's all the same side, maaaaaan!!!!"

1. Bands - Thank god the cravat finally came out. AMIRIGHTPEOPLE?!?!?

and the word "bandied" sucks, too. I've got something you can toss.
Posted: Mar 20, 2012 7:48 pm
 
C'mon, Andrew...you just don't get it.

Costello singing Springsteen songs while dancing like Michael Jackson, would bring it all into focus.

Especially with Metallica doing sound and Sid facilitating recreation from beyond the grave.

black lips - atlanta suburbia at its finest
david bowie - marc boland and transformer-era lou reed are better
i'll give b-dub a thumbs up on elvis costello, even though he has a few good jams. beyond belief can get stuck in my head for weeks.
i used to think CCR was overrated, but then I stopped being a retard
edit: hardcore sucks, post-hardcore sucks even worse, therefore fucked up sucks and they are assholes to boot

i have never heard fucked up (that i'm aware of) but you are swinging that brush widely. necros, negative approach for example, and proletariat for the post example
Posted: Mar 20, 2012 8:56 pm
 
you are swinging that brush widely

sure sure, but that's what the internet is for. I like bad brains and minor threat a bunch. negative approach... that's a name I haven't heard in eons. Waaaaay before my time as a teenager in Detroit.

There was some pretty good stuff in michigan when I was a kid. Roosevelt's Inaugural Parade and Falling Forward. That stuff hasn't aged so awesomely though.

commercial flavor of the month crap
how about flavor of the last half decade? Sign up Coldplay and Grizzly Bear
Posted: Mar 20, 2012 10:44 pm
 
Led Zeppelin- I really don't like this band. I'm tired of hearing them....I was tired of em' after hearing "Whole Lotta Love" the second time. What a piece of shit song. I don't need to hear Plant make orgasm noises while they go psychedelic on me. I'm tired of the fucking the chick with a shark story. Fuck 'em.

Lynyrd Skynyrd- This one is personal. I never thought they were great....but growing up hearing every shitty redneck bar band murder "Gemme Three Steps" has made me hate them. Why are they still touring? Your main songwriter died horribly...half the people in your band are in their thirties...it'a a bad joke.

Ozzy- He has a knack for growing guitar players in some sort of weird farm and he's great at living off of other people's talent. I respect Sabbath but I think Ozzy is a no-talent asshole, who's good at leeching off real talented people.

Dead Kennedys- I find Jello annoying...vocally and personality wise. He's always so political and righteous. I don't want to see the current DKs live, but it's obvious Jello screwed 'em. Ian he' ain't. He talks it, but I don't think he lives that way. Not bad...he wrote some good stuff...but way overrated.

many years back, my girlfriend at the time and i went to an FYP show at Gilman. Jello was there, and somehow my girlfriend wound up talking to him outside about east bay real estate (he had just bought a home). she wasn't really into punk, so had no idea who he was. i knew who he was but never liked the Dead Kennedys say anything like, "hey, aren't you...???" FYP starts playing, so we tell him we're gonna go in to watch them, and the creep gets all snarky and says, "Yeah, you should head inside - i hear Jello Biafra's in there!" whatta prick.

East Bay Ray always seemed like a nice dood at The Legendary Stardust Cowboy shows though.

oops! edit: i knew who he was but never liked the Dead Kennedys so i didn't say anything like, "hey, aren't you...???"

i've always gotten along fine with jello, he's an encyclopedia of punk. shit, would anyone know of grong grong without him?
Posted: Mar 20, 2012 11:20 pm | Edited by: Cole
 
Even if you take away his personality.....his band pales with the heavy hitters....Flag, Bad Brains, Threat, the Michigan stuff....all better than DKs. I think his charisma put his band in a place that they didn't really deserve....btw...how dated does California Über Alles sound today...just listened to see if i felt any different...I don't.
Posted: Mar 21, 2012 12:59 am
 
It doesn't sound dated to me, because our country is as fucked now as it was in 2009, 1999, 1989, 1979, and 1969.

Which perhaps means that we really aren't fucked, since we've been stabilized and surviving in this ridiculous shit storm since the 60's died?

and yeah skynyrd is super lame. But I'm a yankee so I'm supposed to have that opinion.
Posted: Mar 21, 2012 1:13 am
 
Zep, Skynerd are easy pickins. My only opinion about Ozzy is he made stupid kids and should have really worshiped Satan instead of Mammon. Love you, man, but: Police Truck! Holiday in Cambodia! Bigger problem now takes care of your UberAlles concern. Most all of Plastic Surgery Disasters. Frankenchrist: I liked the dick poster. Bedtime for Democracy=Bedtime for DKs. Preachiness killed it towards the end. But I'm not gone let Biafra's mouthy ruin the early stuff, just like I'm not going to let everything Henry Rollins ever wrote down on paper or everytime he was in a movie or on TV or his band ruin Black Flag. He can keep singing Black Coffee; you can keep your Family Man, family man.

ps: Sex Pistols are still in my top 3 all time fave bands. no matter what you think of them, I understand one may not dig them, but they belong to the very short list of bands that truly changed the history of rock'n'roll radically.
Posted: Mar 21, 2012 6:41 am
 
Rick Laird and Jerry Goodman - boy, they sucked on stage. I'll never understand why Mac took those two fuck ups in the band. He had zillions of better players hangin around him.

The Police
and fuck yeah: The Sex Pistols!

their first three albums are close perfect.

one killer from each:

"Let's lynch the landlord"



"we've got a bigger problem now" (the better version of uber alles, which also bugs the shit out of me- this one can't be touched):



"well paid scientist"

I would agree completely with Andrew's list except to replace the Sex Pistols with REM.

My cousin was in a Klaus Flouride video when he was 9. Apparently Klaus is close with my X-uncle. If Klaus is anything like my X-uncle, they all must be complete douche bags. But I keep an open mind, X doesn't necessarily equal Z.

minor threat gets played to death in the burrito shop i work at, and 21 years after my first exposure to it it still slays me.

that reminds me, has there ever been a build up this bitchin' since? actually, the real question is, has anyone else ever done this particular kind of build up?

Posted: Mar 21, 2012 9:15 am
 
Void/Faith split must be plucked from that fire

as Beefcake points out you could drop this in the fire faith side down

dischord had a good run (understatement) but it's all shit from the 1/2 half of the 80's onward (remember Beefeater? they had a real dogshit version of "Live The Life" a decade before the Oblivians evened the score for rocknroll)

uh anyways,
fucking Adele - christ, enough already

Meddle rules too!

I think it's amazingly comical when "real" punk rockers who WERE THERE! and are now 45-55 years old are like "you never heard DK until 1994?!" well yeah bro, I was 3 1/2 years old when Plastic Surgery Disasters came out, sorry! You would think that once these people makes babies and are half a century old and can't get their wood up anymore that they would start realizing that music and life revelations can happen to anyone at anytime.

Every six hundred dollar folk-psych, private press LP on Collectors frenzy. Nearly half of everything listed in Acid Archives. I'll admit, I enjoy a lot of this kind of stuff but not because it's as awesome as some people would have you believe. Mostly because they are musical trainwrecks. But when people start acting like there's a lot of musical merit there it kind of drives me crazy.
Posted: Mar 21, 2012 12:39 pm
 
I would save my bile for the bands that ripped off & sold what the orig. punx sweated blood to get out. Green Day, Rancid, Sum 41, etc.

i was never a huge DKs fan but they were pretty hard to avoid, as were Flipper. There weren't a lot of good SF bands at all, in my opinion. A band like the OCs are much more creative and original and vital than DKs ever were.

the other shit i always hated was any blues-based histrionic crapola chiefly characterized by an effeminate lead singer who used the upper register to annoying effect whilst his guitarist played cheesey overdone blues riffs too loud on a Gibson thru Marshalls.

I would take the later iterations of "garage rock" over any hardcore acts or KBD acts, and I saw a lot of 'em.

but music is in the ear of the behearer. a lot of taste, unfortunately, is made of exposure. if you don't have an opportunity to hear it, you'll never know what's good.
Posted: Mar 21, 2012 12:51 pm
 
The Who - when your magnum opus is basically "what if Helen Keller was really good at pinball?", then you suck.

Robert Plant - Squawk squawk bay-buh bay-buh squawk squawk!! I might actually like Zeppelin if it weren't for this dying buzzard of a singer.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - seriously, fuck you.

Posted: Mar 21, 2012 2:06 pm
 
right time, right place.
that would be my time and my place. Before Cobain, I was like "ehh music is alright", after Cobain came buying guitars/records, taking drugs, working at radio stations, joining bands, going on tours, etc etc blah blah to where I am today.

I'm sure if you had long been listening to X/ big black/ The Stooges / The misfits / Flipper / The Pixies / stuff on SST / etc in 1991, you were like oh hai this shrimpy blond dirtbag thinks he just invented the power chord and the crappily played guitar solo. But if (like me) you were a 14 year old nerd looking for a sign, it was pretty powerful stuff. But I didn't just stop at Nirvana, Green Day and Bush and think that was the pinnacle of rock n roll. It made me realize that there was weird music and weird musicians out there, and I just wanted to get weirder and weirder and weirder with all of them. Now here I am talking shit on the internet instead of doing my job.

But yeah, while Nirvana definitely opened the door for the commercialization of "punk" and the wasteland of today's rock radio, In Utero and Bleach have aged pretty damn well.

I called out someone? I called out a specific band, whose pussy guitarist tried to fight me for an entire sxsw just for wearing a halloween costume on stage, but he never had the guts to throw a punch.

I certainly didn't call out bruce, cause he's entitled to his opinion and his context. I may have "called out" hardcore as a genre, but in my opinion and in the context of my life, it's a genre of music that doesn't get me off at all. Oh but then I named a few exceptions to that rule, cause exceptions always exist. so fuck you!

Posted: Mar 21, 2012 8:21 pm
 
The problem is that bands aren't static. I love "Immigrant Song" and "Communication Breakdown", but I pretty much hate the rest of Led Zeppelin's oeuvre.

I still love some Minor Threat, and some Screeching Weasel songs will still make me tap my toes; however, I don't really give a shit about those bands or anyone in those bands anymore. I don't care about their most recent record and wouldn't go to see them if they played in my town for free.

"Overrated" too often means "I don't get it" or "I don't like them anymore, and therefore, no one else should."

I am qualified to say, however, that Scott Rogers is no way, shape, or form overrated.

No joke: one of his balls looks like a lincoln log.

I gotta say, I'm puzzled that someone could find nothing to like about the Gories. Hooks? "View from here" has several great hooks and is near perfect to me. But, to each his own. Loved DK as a teen but it hasn't aged well for me. Listening to those videos now made me feel like I was stuck in a conversation with an attention starved politico. When I was 14 though, it was hilarious. Let's talk about something that was truly awful though. Aside from maybe two or three songs that are fun in a kind of messy, home recording kind of way...
Samhain really is a pile of shit.
Nazz -tried to like it. didn't
Now let's be taboo and talk Memphis.
Big Star - Not saying anything bad, just overated. Love Thirteen and a handful of others. and while we're here...
Box Tops! Sitar solo in cry like a baby makes me wanna break something when it comes on the radio. two songs I like and plenty I don't.
Moloch -blusey groove band that lacks groove. So many great Memphis records that deserve belated props but instead people keep this hunk of crap in print? terrible.
Nearly every title on TMI. Much of it produced by Steve Cropper. Should have been the next phase of the Mempho rock sound. Watchpocket featured the increadible writing and vocal talent of Sid Herring, Edgewood had loads of local talent as well. Yet everything on the label flat out sucks.
Mudboy and the Nuetrons- locally revered? sure. Good? no.

There weren't a lot of good SF bands at all,

Gotta disagree with that one...there was a lot of arty, contrived crap...yes...but there were some gems...Mutants, Fuck Ups, Avengers come to mind in the late 70's and early 80's...That 1st Bad Posture lp wasn't bad either...may as well throw in Tales of Terror from Sacto a bit farther down the line, one of my all time faves..
Overrated SF?
Record collector blasphemy, but the fucking Mummies and Crime..

oh...forgot Sick Pleasure on the positive...code of Honor on the negative
As far as Greg's Big Star reference...I kinda get it, some of it is the best thing ever..and some just isn't...Love hits me in a similar fashion..some songs are just fucking brilliant, and then some are this horrible self indulgent crap that makes me wanna throw my stereo out the window..

Snuky Tate too.

I'm amazed nobody has mentioned the fact that music itself is actually overrated especially when you compare it to cumming or getting urinated on.

I was at a friend of mine's place the other day and he was all, "Hey TGC you gotta listen to these mp3s I downloaded off of the internet!" and I was all, ". . . errr I gotta go to the bathroom." Then I went to the kitchen and opened up the refridgerator door until all the coldness escaped and the motor inevitably kicked in. I sat there and listened to that instead.

flamin groovies don't get best of sf / world nomination? ok...

gories overrated? do you like the oblivians? obviously not the same sound, but their depth is equal. how does that guitar work (both of 'em) not kill you? they don't have to be about hooks. it's equally about delivery for the gories. that's originality for you, and obviously alex chilton felt the same way. if you can't make the connection between the gories and the cramps well... at least the gories stopped before they could have made their own "stay sick." that's what the dirtbombs were for.

beef, how can you compare a band with three studio albums to billy childish? he has 20 + bands that all more or less do the same thing. caesars an headcoats being the best, and identical to each other (and also on the gories / 'blivs level). i understand where your coming from, but the gories are as singular as any of the greats. you can't have overkill when you were only around for 6 years and you aren't the oh sees.

bb king & nirvana are both great additions.

idiots in college drove me nuts when nirvana broke. they thought they discovered a new kind of music when they heard nevermind & wouldn't shut up about it.

but it benefited me financially as i continually ordered CDs from BMG under fake names & sold them back to my local record store. every week he was getting new copies of nevermind, soundgarden's badmotorfinger & red hot chili peppers' blood, sugar, sex, magik.

at least bb king was on an episode of sanford & son.

Couldn't agree more. Big Star is a slightly weak attempt at the Byrds. Chilton couldn't have tried hard enough to sound like Roger McGuinn. Not saying they were bad but, come on.

I'll say it again...SEX PISTOLS
I tore my shirt in half and put it back together with safety pins. ANARCHY! They once played where the Taco Bell is on Union in Memphis! H-O-L-Y S-H-I-T!!

Hell yes! Should have been on my list. Terrible.

Charlatans(the 60's band) plodding through the same turf other SF bands were trying with even less melodic success. While we're here...
Jefferson Airplane
Still like the Pistols but I have no use for PIL
Chilton solo stuff feels gritty and more revealing of who he really was than anything previous so yeah, big thumbs up for "flies on..'', "high priest" and other fun-loving solo releases. With Big Star and the Box Tops it always felt like he was trying to mold himself to fit something. Not unsuccessfuly either, love some of it.
Janis Joplin- read a big piece on her in VF a while back that was great. Made me appreciate her over the top, desperate persona. The music is still terrible.
By the way, I don't think this is a prententious conversation at all. Hearing what a great record "_______" is followed by the sobbering realization that your $10 isn't coming back, is a memorable occurance for most of us. I see no problem in recounting these personal taste-misfires. It also puts into perpective the unreasonable expectations we sometimes place on someones effort.

Under rated:
Bobby Hebb

Ted Taylor(except at goner where he is always fully appreciated)

Yes, they were first, or so it is claimed. First to play folk-rock? Not really. First to make Edwardian clothing hip? Maybe. Though I think a tip of the hat to turn of the century clothing had already happened in Europe. So I've never been quite sure what they were first at exactly. It is also claimed that their posters were the first to contain psychadelic art. Hmm...
I've seen some of these alegged psychadelic posters. They just look like Sears and Roebuck catalogs from 1850 or something to me. Groovies cover of "I saw her" or whatever is better than the Charlatans original. It seems to me that they were around when the SF scene was taking off, were likely nice guys and as photos attest they were snazzy dressers. Somehow this string of facts has rewarded them with a very large place in musical history.

gories overrated? do you like the oblivians?

I love the Oblivians/Quintron record...I would say it is one of the best Memphis records of the last 20 years.

I remember a long long time ago someone recommeded I get the "I know you're fine, but how you doin'?" LP to me since I was a big 68 Comeback fan...I went out and got it, was excited by the moray-patterened cover..got it home and was dumbfounded at the mediocrity and non-rockiness of it all.

Actually the Gories/Oblivians show is what cemented my "god these guys suck" opinion. The Oblivians sounded like the Jimi Hendrix Experience compared to the Gories...those bands, although linked together by the "noisy, sleazy, three piece bass-less racket" genre are light years apart IMO.

Venom is the only band in the world who would have sucked if they had a drummer who wasn't inept. Abaddon was the dude that came up with the image, logo...pretty much everything and his inability to actually play the drums gave Venom their power strangely enough.

Couldn't agree more about NRBQ. I just don't get it. Love that first Wildweeds 45 on CHESS though. They should have kept minning that genre.
Unlike most people, I have a soft spot for what would amount to an album side worth of Lords Of The New Church.
Post-PTOOF Deviants. That record has it all. Sadly, the following two have almost no exciting moments.
Zappa is the epitome of over rated. A couple of fun moments with the Mothers followed by years of pretentious fusion.
