I saw part of the movie but got bored - I recall something about the band being pursued by some DJ for an interview (which still beats Give My Regards To Broad Street for plot excitement).

Not most overrated ever (this thread title is not good) but i dont get the affection for the Beach Boys. One of those bands where i think i'll like them so play an album of theirs which doesn't excite me and leaves me with zero desire to hear more. I really dislike their surfin' stuff and have even got bored of 'God Only Knows'. 

I didn't want to ruin the Bakers Dozen thread.

The following people thank meanmistermustard for this post:

How many of their albums have you heard mmm?

Just curious. As you may know I have recently listened to every Beach Boys studio album in sequence and they have a much stronger body of work (in my opinion of course) than I had expected.

Every band that doesn't suck to start with ends up being overrated, but isn't that just code for "not my taste (ever/any more)"? I've rarely enjoyed any live Led Zeppelin of anything (ok if it was just a camera on JPJ playing, that I could get into, the rest pfft), but I will defend songs like Ramble On on record as being great even though the lyrics are hilariously bad. U2 were a really different band for rock but yeah they have been coasting for 20 years sadly, but what else are the poor buggers qualified for? Plus I met Adam Clayton once and he is a cool dude so watch it.

But....I do agree about Oasis, bunch of showponies, Blur wiped the floor with them musically. Speaking of showponies, Coldplay are the most nauseatingly slight band to ever play undeservedly to arenas and should be forced to lick the footsteps of Muse, who are annoyingly talented but insist on writing songs I don't care for that much except the odd one. There are many others I could insult but I'll stop there and instead plug a band that proves that reggae makes everything cool even more cool again:

I agree that Blur were a far more consistent act, without question. But I don't think they reached the heights that Oasis did with a Definitely Maybe or a Morning Glory in my opinion. They were, however, quite brilliant in reinventing their music style. The difference between Modern Life is Rubbish and Think Tank is astounding. A very underrated band.
