Enigmarush;316058 said:Watch your mouth when you speak of Kiss. Without them and a few other bands music would not be what it is today. They were the first to wear make up(new york dolls)....any metal band that does that now days is accepted because of Kiss. When they first came out, parents thought they were demons, the closest bands I can think of that would be viewed as that now a days would be like ...Mushroom head or Slipknot. You can say you dont like their music, but you cannot say they are the worst band ever.

TheCrimsonSaint;315792 said:Iron Maiden needs to be removed from this list, as does The Who. They should be replaced with Led Zeppelin and AC/DC (post Bon Scott era). Led Zeppelin, holy ****, how did they ever get so popular? They're not bad, but they sure as hell aren't anything special. They wrote, what, 5 interesting songs? They were terrible songwriters. Also, Page's voice was not that great.

Just because a band is immensly famous or known doesn't automatically make them overrated does it? I think your overrated when peopl go crazy over you for a time and 20 years later no one knows who you are, and no one cares. Most of the bands on this list have been around for at least 20 years and they are all still relevent and continue to have huge fan bases. If a band has that kind of staying power they deserve all the slobbering and air play the get. My point how many people are still huge Oasis, Silver Chair, They Might Be Giants, Belly, etc. fans? And there no older or dated then Nirvana or Pearl Jam.
LetsRock;314953 said:Agreed, Tool was a WHOLE band. Everything about them felt like TOOL. You buy a tool album you get creepy music, creepy artwork, creepy videos, creepy lyrics, the works. The music is good too and carries exactly what you expect, unlike.....Kiss. Seriously, when I was young I was looking at Kiss pictures thinking these guys look like they can Kill some of the bands I listen to. Boy, was I wrong, this was the most uninspired music I had ever heard. I've never been let down that much by a band in my life I think. They should've left the makeup at home, or played heavier music cause Kiss is the BIGGEST half-ass band to ever roll out of a practice space.And then you watch Metal documentaries all around and Gene Simmons has no problem saying "Yeah we made a spectacle out of ourselves, that was the point" hey thanks Gene now I know why the music was so bad and uninspired.I'll take Twisted Sisters over Kiss ANYDAY. ANYTIME. Dee snyder could at least whip some ass in a courtroom, instead of devoting his life to producing toothpaste tubes with his band on it.

Keebler;319713 said:This thread sucks ridiculous ass.Stop using the word "overrated." I don't think many people actually understand what it means.... have you ever actually listened to more than one song of their's? Holy crap.
footballover494;320948 said:HE DIDN'T STEAL THEIR SONGS AND SCREW THEM OVER AND BECOME A CULTURAL ICON ON FALSE PRETENSES!
Julio_Strikes_Back;316618 said:And that's where I stopped reading.... :facepalm:Also something as subjective as "interesting" should be followed by an "IMO" tyvm. But I agree that Stairway is nothing special. Kashmir, Stairway and Black Dog (and basically all of IV) overshadow so many great songs, it's not even funny. EVERY DAMN DAY my classic rock station plays either Black Dog or Stairway or Kashmir. wtf.
TheCrimsonSaint;321155 said:If you had continued reading, you would have noticed that at the end of my post I did, indeed, say, "This is all, of course, in my humble opinion". Because it is overwhelmingly obvious from Led Zeppelin's succes (deserved or not) that it is only my opinion that Page couldn't sing for his life. I'm not here to rule out anyone else using absolute's.
gameover77;321335 said:now tool... i have never heard heard any of their songs and people tell me what they sound like...it reminds of nirvana...which is trashThe who...who? all of their songs are a joke... "we dont get fooled again" well guys dont get fooled again because their trash...
