 No, not the biggest folk fan. No, haven't heard much of his music. 

This is why overrated/underrated discussions are so frustrating. Imagine talking to someone who wrote off the Beatles as underrated because they heard "She Loves You," "I Want To Hold Your Hand," and "From Me To You" and said that all their songs sounded the same and that they simply wrote trivial pop songs for teenyboppers.

I see your point.

One Direction, they haven't exactly done anything for music whatsoever so I hate it when they are compared with The Beatles

 

And if you mean genuine bands to be taken seriously, The Rolling Stones. I think they're quite overrated :P And I'm not a fan of Mick Jagger's voice

I also like some metal, but I find that whole category to be a little bit overrated :P Like it's good on occasions but I couldn't listen to it all the time or be a metalhead like my cousin(Who used to hate The Beatles until I showed him songs such as 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' and 'Eleanor Rigby' which he liked because they are darker songs)

I also kind of find rap to be overrated, same as metal, it's good to listen to on occasions only

 

I know this isn't a band/genre but Yellow Submarine, Hey Jude and Let It Be are really overrated Beatles songs in my opinion

 

I think Beyonce is really overrated, she's okay but people make her out to be a musical goddess

I think a lot of singers sound the same nowadays, and when people go on the X factor with an 'amazing voice' it's not so amazing because it sounds the same as like every other contestants voice LOL (okay a bit of an exaggaration, but you see my point)

The following people thank TheBeatlesJohn for this post:

The one act i fail to see the point in or attraction of are The Carpenters. I think there are a few of their fans on this forum but there is no other band i can think of who bore me so much that it surpasses that and sinks quickly into real annoyance where i am desperate for it to end. Its middle of the road safe music that i detest, their cover of Help! is a massive crime against music and should be buried under the earth for all eternity but its not the only one. I honestly cannot express how much i detest them and fail to see what they did for music or why they are liked by anyone.

 

Nirvana i've never gotten into. Come As You Are is ok (if listened to once every 2 years) but i have zero desire to explore their legacy.

@IveJustSeenAFaceo, have you heard Angie? Mixed Emotions? Start Me Up

I do agree that The Rolling Stones are overrated, but for completely different reasons. Honestly, I haven't heard even half of their repertoire, nor have I paid close attention to the songs I have heard, but there is no escaping that The Rolling Stones are a good band. What I believe to be their significant place in the music history are their riffs. Man, every Rolling Stones riff is a mother to another riff produced by whichever band that came after them. As for Jagger's voice, well, his vocal range obviously consists of two to three notes which he can't hit properly, but have you heard Angie? I don't think there's someone out there who can sing that song better. Mich Jagger is not a singer, in my opinion, but a rockstar. The Rolling Stones rock in general. That's what is important for a rock band.

But yes, the thought 'overrated' comes to mind when so many people refer to them as one of the greatest bands in rock history. Not even close. They have screwed their place among the greatest by pursuing a career as band for half a century. When a band plays so long, they ought to write some horrible, horrible songs and make some horrible, horrible shows. That's like spitting on their good stuff. Had they saved their best songs over the last 30-something years for one or two great albums, The Rolling Stones would have been a much better band, and no one would dare to say that they are overrated.
