Default Most overrated rock bands

Hows this one, what bands from the 70's and 80's were the most overrated?

I'll start with the rolling stones

Who was overrated? All of them ..... music is for people that don't like living in the here and now. When you stop daydreaming, music sounds like noise.






















Calm down......I was only joking.......






















or maybe I wasn't.














I have always thought the Stones sucked...seriously, I do not like one of their songs.

Rush

dude - you beggin for a throwdown!




I second the Stones. Never been a huge fan. Since I am not technical about music at all, I can only say they just don't do it for me.

I think music should just make you - feel.....

Gotta go with Joe. Rush!?!? The greatest drummer of all time in my opinion. No way are they over-rated.



Gotta love these opionated threads.

I'd take Rush over the Stones any ole' day, but the Stones have some pretty good tunes. They're just few and far between with maybe one or two good tunes per album.

Rock In A Hard Place is handsdown my favorite Stones tune!

If I just look at the 70's & 80's, I'd have to go with Tina Turner or James Brown.....never could understand all that screaming?

Rush's new stuff is sounding pretty fine!
