  1. The Overrated Thread


    I'm bored at work so I figured I'd get a nice discussion (read: argument) going.

    IMO, these bands are HORRIBLY overrated:

    1. Nirvana
    2. AC/DC
    3. Led Zepplin

    Films:

    1. Pulp Fiction
    2. Scarface
    3. A New Hope aka Star Wars

  2. You think AC/DC and Led Zepplin are over-rated?

    Here's a thought Rodja. You're obviously dillutional. Go outside, take a deep breath and give yourself an uppercut






    Nice topic btw

    I really do think that they're overrated. Zepplin suffers from the death-phenomena (a band/artist becomes instantly better when a member dies). I'm not saying that suck, but I do think they're far too idolized.

    AC/DC does suck, though. Not much diversity in the music.

    You are going to die a slow, horrible death.
    Haha. I fully anticipated to stir up some sh!t, but I don't want this thread to turn into a insultfest.

    Exactly. Remeber Rodja is younger then us so he just doesnt get it.

    Eh, what is there to get? Zepplin had more creativity, which I give them major credit for, but AC/DC really lacked in this area.

    It's the same reason why I hate System of a Down. It just gets boring after you've heard the same pattern 1000 times.

    I agree with you that a lot ac/dc sounds the same, but the way the infused just standard blues licks into thier sound is amazing. Remember thier sound wasnt heard before, until they created it.

  9. Kanye West is overrated. Complete garbage.

  10. Yeah, I agree w/ AC/DC. Also, ZZ Top songs all sound the same to me, as well.

    But, just a note: As younger adults, we cannot objectively comment on the status of older bands like Led Zeppelin. We were not around in their hayday and don't have any idea on the impact these bands had on the lives of those living at that time.

    I agree and disagree. If youre a musician you will understand the creativity and complexity of Led Zeppelin. Also ZZ Top sucks.

    Generation Y - pfft.

    You are too young to appreciate any of these three during their heyday.

    I really, really, hate Nirvana at this point. Far too idolized for what they actually accomplished and, again, falls into the death category. That always skews perceptions.

    I'm going to double-up on the Harry Potter being overrated. My fiancee has dragged me to, two midnight showings now and to quote the iconic theologian Eric Cartman, "Tha phuque?"

    As I said, you weren't there Rodja - you would have been 7 at the time!

    In saying that, I think the Corporate machine was their great undoing, leading to the untimely demise of Kurt Cobain.

    The Cowboys are amongst the most poorly run teams in US sports. Jerry Jones is completely incompetent and has driven out 3 exceptional coaches/talent evaluators. It's one of the downfalls of living in TX; far too many people are rabid Cowboys fans and they always make them out to be the pinnacle of sports teams.

    Gotta love the new HD screen, though

    Punters will be aiming to hit that fukker all year.

    Thats it for now

    Agreed. And too many people think Stairway to Heaven is the one and only, and best song by Led Zeppelin, without listening to their MANY other songs.

    Also I dont think Bonhams death instantly made them better at all. When he died on tour in 1980, they had been together for 12 years. Also Jimmy page and Jon Bonham are still recognized as the top musicians for guitar and drums almost 30 years later.

    Everything else,..... I can agree with.

  27. also... overated....... CSI

    I had such high hopes

    Aw **** yeah. Along with NCIS and all the other shows like it. Anyone who watches that **** and doesn't feel like their intelligence is being insulted doesn't have any right to be on my planet stealing my oxygen.

    Other over-rated stuff:
    1. David Beckham.
    2. All things Halo related.
    3. Angelina Jolie.
    4. Reality programming of any description (Idol, Big Brother etc etc etc)
    5. Anything that falls under the banner of "Aussie drama &/or cinema" (For all the aussies out there).
    6. Michael Bisping.
    7. Kimbo Slice.
    8. The "Saw" movies.
    9. Every season of Dexter after the first one (They just repeat the same story arc over and over ffs).
    10. M. Night Shyamalan

  30. Over Rated:

    • Paul McCartney’s ex-wife’s false leg
    • German Porn (it’s old hat, the Japanese have taken over)
    • Lady GaGa (so she’s got a ding dong, her songs are still crap)
    • The Crocodile Hunter (he’s dead, get over it)
    • DJ Aligator (he’s not as good as Europe claims)

  31. On the reality TV front, I must admit I really like The Biggest Loser.

  32. My wife and I have become fans over the past several years as well.

    I think my idea of the Biggest Gainer would be the shizzz! 12 skinny-arse nerds in a house, training and eating for LBM each week.

    Winner gets an iMac, a date with Pam Anderson with complimentary Hep. shot

  34. I agree, and I was going to post the same in reference to The Biggest Gainer. I would watch it.

    Their first album was amazing, but they've tailed off horribly since then.
