I think Metallica would have to be my pick.  I mean, they have a couple songs that I REALLY like, but vocal wise, they're not so great.  And me personally, I like a lot of heavy stuff.  I mean, I listen to Disturbed, Alice in Chains, all bands like that.  But Metallica is a bit too overrated.  The guitars are awesome thougha-hard-days-night-george-8

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Not by a lot, but yes. I say this because London Calling doesn't have any "Wild Honey Pie"'s, if you get my meaning. London Calling might not have as many highs, but it has way less lows.

Lodon Calling is cool, but I don't think it comes close to the White Album. I'd take Wild Honey Pie over that awful prelude to emo song Lost in the Supermarket. The Clash do kind of annoy me though, although I wouldn't say they are overrated.

I wasn't being entirely serious. Still, I think it's like someone saying the Beatles aren't very good- just hand them a copy of Revolver or Abbey Road and you're nearly there.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

I think Pink Floyd was fantastic at presenting certain metaphors for the way they saw life in a clever way. Whereas John would just have Working Class Hero, Floyd had the Wall. Same sort of idea, just done a bit differently.
I always think about bands in terms of how listenable they are, an example would be the Clash. I enjoy their music, but I couldn't listen very much of it at once because I don't like their vocals. Does that make them overrated? I'm not sure.

I feel like the Beach Boys are a bit overrated. They had Pet Sounds, which is brilliant and all, but I honestly find their other music boring. There are a great deal of defensive Beach Boys fans on Youtube (who ALWAYS compare Pet Sounds to Sgt. Pepper), but there are really only a handful of songs not on that album that are any good.

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.
