What is this, a message board for idiots?

Those people need to learn how to spell.

I like this one:
"U2 arent overrated? 1 of their albums was voted the best of all time in some poll. The Smiths are also stupidly overrated."

Okay, where is the logic and facts backing up these statements!?!?!

Was this person on the side of U2, or against them?

yeah. i never knew because an album was popular that that meant the group was overrated. i guess that means everyone on the top album charts is overrated.

one minute these guys sound like your typical teenieboppers, the next minute they act like your typical, rebellious, "we only like what's indie and popular because that makes me unique and cool" teens you see sulking at the mall.

I don't usually pay any notice to people like this, but did someone just give support for Will Young there?

It's peole like them who give us teenagers a bad rep. They do need to learn how to spell. I agree with the person who posted the thread though. I can't stand Alicia Keys either. All of Nelly's songs sound the same to me. I'm surprised Creed isn't in there anywhere.

The Smiths might have been a bit overrated in Great Britain for a very little while
only a very little bit though since they really were great

Hey!!! I'm a kid!
But I'm a SMART kid.
Anyway, usually I don't reply to the threads about U2-bashers because I really don't care, I love U2 and that's what matters. But...this is so stupid. U2 isn't overrated. They've been around for more than 20 years, I think they've earned every single solitary bit of praise they've recieved.
That's my story and I'm stickin to it.


edited because i type faster than i think

you'd be surprised what fans of other bands think of U2

they waited for something mediocre like ATYCLB and gave Bono and the boys the 'panning'

and its true, ATYCLB resembles something like an Eagles album, its adult contemporary, and its embarrassing to play it loud

Come on Bono, enough singing about your Midlife crisis, for one i dont hear Madonna singing about morning sickness and all that kinda shite on her more recent albums, or Depeche Mode singing: "we're so old we need walking sticks"

I'm sure the whole band weeps all day long because a lot of people don't like them and their music...
