Nickelback aren't overrated because nobody likes them.

RE Radiohead, I think it was Ok Computer i listened to and found it to be an interesting enjoyable listen, haven't found the time to get around to hearing any other albums of their's tho Creep is a brilliant song.

 

As for the Stones i've never liked Satisfaction, bores me senseless and find the riff to be monotonous. Their output is so hit and miss in that either its fantastic or unlistenable garbage with no inbetween.

Agreed. Same with Radioactive. That albums got some fantastic deep cuts though

OK, I gave Dylan another listen with Tempest and Highway 61 Revisted this time. And I confirm I don't like his music. Really, what is it that gets people to like him? He's an excellent songwriter (as evidenced by how incredible the Hendrix and Green Day (seriously I've just set the Green Day one on repeat for hours in the past, along with their Working Class Hero) versions of Like A Rolling Stone are, along with other covers). And he's a solid if unspectacular guitarist.

But he can't sing. He can't sing at all. To me, his voice is almost torturous. Give his songs to a Hendrix or a Green Day, or hell, even a Metallica, any day, and I'll love 'em cause it's great writing. But dear god don't let him near a microphone. It's not only that his range is extremely limited, it's that the voice is boring and drudgy, which really doesn't work for long songs, which he likes to make. Or even short songs. Or any type of music whatsoever. I'd rather listen to a Jay-Z cover of Yesterday then listen to Like A Rolling Stone. This was named the best song of all time???? In what universe??? I'm not a huge fan of country/folk stuff, though I don't hate it. But Bob Dylan is nowhere near the top 100 performers of all time, let alone number two. 

Now, this may sound like a huge hate rant, which it kind of is. But, if you like Bob Dylan I won't challenge you on it directly, this is just what I think, which is that he's massively overrated. Anyway, if you like him, go right ahead. I felt like I needed to get this out there though. Bye.

Yeah, like George Harrison's "Dark Horse"! (Presumably, that is. I've never heard that Katy Perry song so whaddo I know?)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney
