    And why?

    My vote goes to,

    Radiohead – Refreshingly different but far too cerebral and "moaney"

    Cream – Bad rip-offs of classic old blues songs, all guitar no rhythm

    Pink Floyd – Unmusical, dull, wallowing, pretentious 'sound'

    That should ruffle a few feathers, now, post your own

    Not a particular fan of either Cream or PF but I still wouldn't say they were overrated. You're wrong about Radiohead though.

    Overrated? Hmmm…Hearsay, Jedward, JLS, Same Difference

    Bob Dylan – only because I don't like him at all.
    Smiths/Morrisey – again – as above but at least he can sing – unlike Dylan.

    never got the slavish devotion awarded to the Clash.
    Darkness were one trick ponies
    As for Van Morrison, yeah he can sing but name me 10 good songs by him not including Gloria, Brown eyed bleedin girl, moondance or here comes the night.

    Cream, all guitar and no rhythm, excuse me? Ginger Baker is an excellent drummer and Jack Bruce a damn fine bass player, which makes a a three-piece band two-thirds rhythm section. Or don't you do maths?
    And the Beatles? Well, whether you like them or not doesn't alter the fact they were not ‘shite', they altered the face of popular music from Tin Pan Alley sourced songs given to any singer with a good voice, kinda like X-Factor winners, in fact, to bands and singers who actually wrote their own material. Calling them shite shows a breathtaking level of ignorance of musical history. Go back to yer Will Young records and leave the proper music to the grownups.

    As far as the Beatles being "overrated" is concerned, despite never having been a fan of theirs, I find that they are now being constantly underrated. I reckon it's hard overemphasise just how profound the Beatles influence was – and not just on music. Even Monty Python ffs, was influenced by the Beatles.

    without The Beatles there would be no popular music as we know it.
    Most over-rated to me is U2, few good tunes but thats it

    Hmmmm,

    I is narked. Jacko, madge, etc ain't bands! They're people(?)

    Bands are never overrated. These are groups coming together to produce wondeful sounds.

    As for PF – great gig in the sky is still a huge fave.

    Darkness – never really met their time

    Elbow – been around ages nit just the Seldom
    seen kid

    I like music me, but it has to come from a band. Play it yourself and you're not overrated

    U2 for sure. Not because their music sucks because some of it is OK but because they're so far up their own arses that it makes my ring hurt.

    "Invest, invest, invest in Ireland, the home of the brave! But not us, we'll stick all our money into offshore investements. We meant you, the poor people."

    After that, Snow patrol, Black eyed peas, LIL Wayne (WTF!!???), Radiohead (give me a gun!).

    I've just done a search and these are the most popular bands on facebook. This is also the list that proves that we should be nuked from space. Humans have zenithed. It is now time for the species to die and pass on.

    1. Rihanna (1.52 million)
    2. Coldplay (1.49 million)
    3. Lil Wayne (1.34 million)
    4. Linkin Park (1.33 million)
    5. Chris Brown (1.3 million)
    6. Metallica (1.22 million)
    7. Pink Floyd (1.16 million)
    8. Bob Marley (1.13 million)
    9. Red Hot Chili Peppers (1.12 million)
    10. Justin Timberlake (1.05 million)
    11. AC/DC (997,000)
    12. Daft Punk (912,000)
    13. Beyonce (906,000)
    14. Queen (900,000)
    15. Evanescence (873,000)
    16. Jonas Brothers (843,000)
    17. Radiohead (793,000)
    18. Kanye West (792,000)
    19. Katy Perry (791,000)
    20. Akon (753,000)

    Justin Timberlake is more popular than AC/DC. Which means more people think his music is better that AC/DC's. So clearly, we all need to die.

    Your forgetting the 'Sex Pistols'. Reminds me of that kit kat advert. 'You can't Sing, you can't play, you look awful, you'll go a long way'

    Shame they did 'go a long way' as now we have to still put up with that c0ck John Lydon.

    Any one that actually likes them still or thinks that they were actually influencial probably does not know very much about the era.

    Black Eyed Peas is a good shout as well actually – bizarrely popular.

    Without the Beatles, some other band would have come along and "changed popular music as we know it"…

    Oasis. Has been no bigger overrated band ever. They've done some good chunes (I'd count 3 or 4), but overall, they are no better than a cover band.

    The Rolling Stones. 1 good song.

    +1 for Black Eyed Peas.

    Listening to them, especially the long-haired ape-faced bellend that 'raps'* is like w&nking in a cactus-filled sock.

    odannyboy – I'd go with you on a lot of the old standard hiphop but if you paid more than a passing "He's black, he does urban music" bit of attention to Dizzee Rascal, he's nothing like that.

    U2, Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, most of the chart dance music, most R&B (really formulaic these days)

    You're basically using the classic 'I'm not racist but….' – interesting that you don't just way that you're not keen on hip-hop/urban music

    There's lots of good intelligent well-made hip-hop/urban music out there – dismissing it all as black gangsta shite probably is kind of racist imo.

    Oasis – utter shite

    Oh well, here's me 2p…

    Oasis are my favourite band. Of all time. Ever. They deserve to be held up as producers of astonishingly good music. I still don't know why so many people go "oh yeah, their first two albums were alright, but then they got shite": seems to me people ain't listening to 'em and only because they're too proud to.

    Ho hum.

    Overrated band: REM. Their music makes me weep. (With pain and desire to have the CD rammed up George W. Bush's a-hole, before shooting the whole shebang into a volcano on Venus.)
