I just remembered another one.

Jeff Buckley. Apart from his version of 'Hallelujah'. He had a great voice, but boy did he know it.

Nirvana - Good, but not half as great as great as many people like to make out.

Green Day - Can't see what all the hype is all about and why everyone seems to love them so much, I find their music either dull or annoying (more often the latter). IMO the most overrated band going at the moment.

Rolling Stones - Pretty much agree with what Axver and YBORCITYOBL said, can't see what's so special about these either.

Bananaphone ring ring ring ring ring ring ring, banana-phone DO DO DO DA DODODO

i've got this FEELING
it's so APPEALING
for us to get together
and SING, SING!!!

...I'll stop.

The Rolling Stones are overrated, imo. I DO like them (Gimme Shelter fucking ROCKS), and I understand how they're important to music and all that, I just don't go crazy over them and I find songs like Sympathy for the Devil to be rather boring at times

Coldplay are also overrated, but I love them anyway as for Green Day... you should see them live. I gained soooo much more respect for them when I saw them live. They are up there with U2, no joke.

Nirvana - Kurt Cobain's voice irritated the hell out of me too.

REM - Sure, I can tolerate Automatic For The People, but I can't get into any of their other stuff.

Franz Ferdinand - Some of it is okay, but it's hardly original.

Green Day - BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

Smashing Pumpkins - I feel the same way about them as I do with Pearl Jam.

Coldplay - Don't even get me started.
I agree with everything except Smashing Pumpkins and Franz

Not that we don't like them, but come on, U2 are also pretty overrated.

PJ ROCK!

I always thought the Stones were overrated but to be admired for their longevity.

I don't agree with that, if anything they're underrated

if most of my friends heard Zooropa or Pop, they'd freakin' love them
