An interesting thread on Quora

See if you can guess who this comment is referring to.
"The most boring, irritating, mindlessly tedious, so called artist of all time. Spinning around endlessly on stage, whilst he moans on about absolutely nothing worth boring us all with.
[...]
For anybody suffering from insomnia, and badly missing sleep, this is the music for you."

"Gene Simmons. He is not “rated” very high as a bass player, but as low as he is rated, he is overrated. He is an untalented windbag who has ridden his long tongue and ability to vomit fake blood while wearing a Halloween costume all the way to the bank."

"Elvis Presley. He could sing and he knew how to work a crowd, but he was a mediocre musician and I don’t believe he wrote a single one of his hits. He didn’t change the direction of popular music at all, he just jumped on the rockabilly bandwagon and became famous. Then, he OD’ed and became a legend for being famous. Not necessarily a non-talent, but there were any number of his contemporaries who were better at everything. But he was the one who got ridiculously rich and famous. "

I agree about Gene Simmons. While I still admire the work he did with KISS back in the 70s, he's long since become a complete joke: an out-of-touch narcissist asshole that's only concerned with his brand. In other words, he's the Donald Trump of the rock world!

^ Well I think most of the band overrated their love of the beach.
"Brian hated the ocean. [...] Surfing was huge at the time ... so why not write some surfing songs if you want to start a new band?"

Meh, I could care less if they were really surfers any more than I care if Slayer really worship Satan or if Dr. Dre has ever been a real gangsta. (Note: the answers are No and No.)
What gets me is that, IMHO, the Beach Boys did nothing but take Doo-Wop (which was somewhat out of style when the BBs first started) and then they put their own special spin on it. Did they have good songs? Absolutely. Is Pet Sounds a Classic album? Yes it is.
But "genius"? That's going a little too far. I think rock journos are really more in love with the STORY of Brian Wilson (madness, family tribulations, the endless saga of "Smile") that the only way to tie this story in a neat little bow is to declare him a "genius." or "torturted, tragic, genius."
I love music and musicians but I have a hard time calling anyone really a "Genius". (MAYBE Bob Dylan. MAYBE James Brown. MAYBE Coltrane.)
EVERYBODY has taken something from what came before them, and the Greats have added their own touches and made it their own. But the whole "Genius" thing as applied to Wilson has just always rankled me.

^ I haven't really listened to the Beach Boys, but I'd never really thought of them as one of the all time great bands. Just a lot of catchy beach/surfing songs and a single highly regarded album.
But looking through that Quora thread, I found these.
"The worst song on Pet Sounds is probably better melodically and lyrically than 99.999% of all songs ever written [...] Brian Wilson’s genius has transcended genre and practically crushed it"
"Brian Wilson was undoubtedly a genius when it came to production skills for his band’s records"
"Brian was the genius behind the Beach boys"
"Brian Wilson ... was more technically complex musician than either John Lennon or even Paul McCartney"

Greg Holley
“Rock and roll isn’t art, that’s not what it’s there for. It doesn’t illuminate, it inflames. Stop apologizing for it, stop pretending it’s something it’s not, and start appreciating what it is. ‘Tutti Frutti’ bitches, ‘Wooly Bully.’ ‘Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,’ and now ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog.’ Woof!
Of course I haven’t answered the question, I’ve just used the question to rant. So here I go—Queen. I don’t get Queen, that music means nothing to me. As far as I’m concerned it’s suffering from a severe lack of crotch. If I wanted musical theatre I’d go see musical theatre and believe me, I don’t want musical theatre.”

Adrian McGovern
“Hands down, U2. […]
“Bono has a voice that wouldn’t get him pass through the first stages of American Idol nowadays”

“Oasis. Enough said, they don’t even deserve an analysis. They were declared the new Beatles, new Beatles my ass”

“Elvis. He was a good singer but not remotely close to the status of super mega untouchable legend that he has nowadays”

Lida Rose
“Coldplay. They’re OK. They just aren’t all that. Their massive success was mostly a product of marketing and luck. They are just an overproduced U2 knockoff.”

Misty Dawn
“OVERRATED beyond belief!
1. Led Zeppelin. Mediocre vocal talent. Simplistic riffs. Stairway to Hell is more like it.
2. Rush- mainly because I hate the lead vocalist’s squeaky-ass voice. Tom Sawyer is like nails on a chalkboard.
3. The Who- Pete Townsend is a minimally talented guitarist. He was more gifted at destroying his guitars than playing them. I like opera but Tommy is an affrontery and shouldn’t even be called a rock opera. The movie was just ewww….the beans, the acid queen. Haunting images
4. ACDC - most of the songs sound the same to me. The lead singer’s characteristic voice gets really old a few bars into any song. “

Jeni Martin
“the most over-rated band EVER are THE BEATLES!
Have a listen to their early stuff, the stuff that got them charting. It’s awful. If they were starting out now, they would struggle to get on the radio. Their lyrics are banal, their harmonies are just hit or miss & their playing leaves a lot to be desired.”

Oasis were once voted the third best band ever to come out of the UK.

Bullshit - they're not even one of the best bands to come out of Manchester.

Yeah, the trouble with Oasis is they've got a singer who tries to do John Lennon impressions, and a lead guitarist who can't play lead guitar. The rhythm's section pretty good, I'll give them that.

^ Correct. I wrote this yesterday on another thread.

"When artists can be successfully sued because a judge believes a one-tenth section of one of their song's sounds too much like another song, how did Oasis basically just copy a whole band and get away with it?"

Well, I think the Beatles are overrated. Great band, arguably an all-time great, but the amount of fierce support/presumption that they are the greatest band of all time makes them overrated.

I don't think anyone's mentioned Nirvana.

(Following on from ^^ I wrote this on a Nirvana related thread.

"When I was growing up, the cool thing was when artists became huge, to brag that you liked them when they started, and everyone else is just following the trend.

Nirvana were a band that when they became famous, every single person liked them when they started.)

^ The only Nirvana song I like is Smells Like Teen Spirit. When I was in middle school everyone thought Green Day was great and I was the only one who thought they sucked. I was into No Doubt back then...until they sold out. Before Paramore got popular I always said I liked them before everyone else. They ended up selling out too. Their old stuff is so damn good, I was listening to it the other day and I forgot how good it was.

I am both a Metallica and Nirvana fan.

I enjoyed every Metallica album up through the black album. I was somewhat annoyed at the "selling out" starting with Justice but really what changed came as follows:

Nirvana's Smells like Teen Spirit blew my mind when it came out, and the grunge era overtook the hair bands and thrash metal in my music collection. I had enjoyed Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger before that having seen them in concert opening for Guns N' Roses, but Teen Spirit changed everything. No one I knew was a Nirvana fan before that, but what it did make me do was buy their first album, Bleach, which I also enjoyed immensely.


Speaking of selling out, Guns' Use Your Illusions were completely overrated at the time, but everybody knows that now.

Add these bands to the list of Bands with annoying fans:

Radiohead
The Beatles (especially the old guys)
Pink Floyd
Weezer

As for overrated musicians I'll say Kanye West is highly overrated (and extremely annoying).

^ Yes, Radiohead fans also automatically think they are musical geniuses. As for Pink Floyd, on another ADT thread I brought up the album "Dark Side of the Moon". A poster, I assume a Floyd fan, basically responded that there was no such album.

On my spin-off topic 'Artists Who's Fans Can be Annoying AF': U2.

Edict to all their die hard fans: U2 are just a band; they are not God's gift to music.

^^ I really like some of U2's music but I can't stand Bono. Fair enough if he is passionate about fighting poverty and social inequality but his smug demeanour over his virtue signalling is anything but endearing and his admission and defence of tax avoidance denies him any right to claim to a moral high ground or credibility.

Prior to coming to ADT, i dont think i ever heard anyone say they thought the Beatles were overrated.

"the Beatles are the most inexcusably overrated band in the history of recorded music. They weren't especially talented musicians; if they wanted a guitar solo, they had to bring in someone else to do it. Not only that, but they frankly sucked at writing lyrics"
(Beatles vs. Stones)

^ "as musicians they were / are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY overrated. A lot of their music is mediocre at best ... most of the stuff that Paul McCartney churns out to this day is extremely ho-hum to say the least ... as for John Lennon, well!!! Not long before he was tragically killed, he released a very so-so comeback album that sold moderately well, but didn't exactly set the world on fire. Before that he'd done sod-all for about 5 years (since "Imagine"). Then in 1980 he was murdered and suddenly the whole world and his dog became Lennon worshippers ... and he was being hailed as the greatest musical genius"

Beatles or Rolling Stones

I have never heard anyone say this about Lennon.

This is 100% true...their songs are awful. They probably wrote a lot of them when they were drugged out so no wonder why they don't make sense and they simply have no talent at all. Idk why so many people think they are Gods in the music world.
