The whole concept of being overrated is subjective, especially when it comes to art. Music, for example, hits all listeners in different ways, with someone’s favorite band ever being someone else’s useless noise. However, taking into account overall popularity vs creative output, we can confidently say these are some of the most overrated bands of all time.
Now, to clarify, we’re not saying these bands are bad. Far from it actually. Almost all of them are very good, just not as good as their fans and/or the music media make them out to be. Yes, even The Beatles. Do you agree with these overrated bands, or have we lost our minds? let us know.
There’s no doubt that the Ramones are a highly influential band among generations of punk rock musicians. However, the truth of the matter is the band’s creative peak lasted all 4 albums in the late 1970s. Beginning with the 1980s End of the Century, the band’s creative output and in turn their live shows became spotty at best.
Weezer released two of the 1990s best albums – 1994’s self-titled (commonly called the Blue Album) and 1996’s Pinkerton – and Rivers Cuomo and company have pretty much been coasting on those two albums for the last 25 years. Ever since their albums have been divisive amongst both their fanbase and casual music listeners.
