Since there are many that I forgot in the first MyTake, I believe we should have a Part II as well. There are also others that don't deserve their fame as well, but they deserve to be slammed down instead.
(In alphabetical order)
1) Bee Gees
Hairy chests, glamorous clothes, puffy hair and beards coupled with super kitsch music. I just want to puke.
During the 90s in UK there were two dominant forces in the music business. Oasis (as I mentioned in the previous MyTake) and Blur. Well you know, they sucked both and generally this shitty Britpop thing. Ultra-cheesy uninspired songs, and usually undeveloped. It was just a singer scratching his guitar and singing songs with cheesy lyrics. Well anyway, Blur happened to be at the right place, in the right time, and so that's why they made it big and they became rich, whilst they didn't deserve it at all.
3) Mariah Carey
Guess she is one of the cases of I want to sound like a Black singer. Anyway, her music is unmemorable and her songs extremely boring. Don't get how many people are into her music, but anyway. And by the way please do us a favor and stop wearing make-up. You look even uglier than you are without!
I have no idea how she gained an idol status. With her boring duet I Got You Babe in the 60s or with her 90s stupid hit I Believe? Or the fact that she looks extremely younger for her age (after numerous plastic surgeries). Well, obviously she is just extremely overrated.
5) The Cure
OK, in their first records they might sounded decent, but then since 1982-1983 they were one of the biggest craps in music industry. Yet highly successful especially in the UK. Blame their loyal fan base for it, that they were finding cool shitty stuff like The Walk or Let's Go To Bed.
6) Daft Punk
How a song that repeats the phrase Around The World 200 times, became a global hit is a huge mystery to me. And yes thanks to this hit Daft Punk became huge, and even influential. Influential my ass. They just wanted to be different than other Techno acts of that era, by wearing those weird helmets.
Their name speaks by itself. GARBAGE. Same applies for Shirley Manson's appearance.
8. Green Day
Stupid music for stupid teens who think they are Rockers because they listen to Green Day. Green Day isn't Rock. They are not Rock Stars but Teen Idols who want to be a Rock band, like ANY Alternative Rock band of this era.
9) Whitney Houston
Bleh, I never understood why she is so highly praised. Her songs are boring and unmemorable. Well except I Will Always Love You, because it's grossly overplayed, so you remember it whether you want it or not. Has she ever thought just for a moment, adding Electric Guitars to her song, in order to make it a Power Ballad, and not a super lousy Soul Ballad?
10) Human League
Well in their first period (with the four male members) when they were experimental and had a more serious image they were actually pretty influential for what would became Synth-Pop, so credit goes to them. But since they recruited the two female vocalists they literally committed suicide as a group, and they did everything just for the money. One of the biggest sellouts let's say.
11) Joy Division/New Order
I consider them the same band, so I don't put them separately. After all New Order are basically Joy Division without Ian Curtis. Especially Joy Division are overrated to the core. For many they changed the face of music. Bullshit. They were one of the MANY British Post-Punk bands of the late 70s/early 80s. It was just Ian Curtis' suicide, that made them legends. As for New Order, I never understood why this Blue Monday single was so highly praised and changed the face of music as well. It was just another Dance record of the year 1983. What made it so special, I don't understand what it was. Anyway New Order are highly praised in Alternative circles as it seems, and they are considered Gods in the Alternative scene. Bullshit, it's just the Alternative crowd that's delusional.
Godfathers of Electronic Music. Bullshit. First of all they were part of the Krautrock genre of the early 70s among Tangerine Dream, Neu! or early Scorpions as well. And secondly they became fully Electronic in their Autobahn album in 1974. They came too late in the game actually since fully Electronic music appeared in 1968 with Wendy Carlos (then Walter Carlos) Switched On Bach. Now why they took the credit about being the Godfathers of Electronic Music is something I don't get.
13) Bob Marley
Well it might be just me, because I don't like Reggae much, so I consider him overrated. I just mention him, because among the Reggae pie, he took the biggest piece.
14) Kylie Minogue
As long as you are media-friendly, even if your music is shitty you can make it really big. Kylie Minogue is a perfect example of the case.
I like how people in our days consider them quality music. Quality my ass. It's just music for people who think they are better than the Rihanna/Beyonce crowd and more or less I would call it Rock music for school kids. There are Rock giants like Styx and Journey, so who cares about a modern Rock band anyway? Guess only kids who don't bother to look for music released before they were born.
16) Pearl Jam
They come from Seattle, Washington these guys. So figure out. They were part of the gross Grunge triad that destroyed the music in the early 90s, along with Nirvana and Alice In Chains. Obviously they don't deserve their fame, and if it wasn't for those Nirvana turds to bring Grunge to the masses, they would still be an obscure band (that's what they deserve). Not one of the biggest bands of the 90s. You guys should have quit from music business decades earlier, and become lumberjacks. You look like lumberjacks after all.
Not as overrated as his rival MJ, but still overrated as well. He just sounded a little bit Rockier than MJ, but there were tons of other artists in the 80s who could actually play better Rock than Prince. I believe it was his unique clothing he used to wear on stage, and his comparison with MJ that made him so popular.
18. Lionel Richie
During the 80s among the famous male black vocalists, Michael Jackson and Prince were the top dogs. But Lionel Richie could be the third most famous I guess. Did he deserve all this fame though? Absolutely not. He was just part of this Dance Disco/ Ballad Soul kitsch scene, among many others.
19) Smashing Pumpkins
I really wonder if the Alternative crowd has really got any idea about music in general, because it seems like they have no idea at all. Smashing Pumpkins is the answer about it. So they make themselves appearing like, I'm just listening to shitty music, in order to be considered Alternative. Do those guys have really any memorable songs or any memorable guitar riffs? No. The only memorable thing from this band, is Billy Corgan's bald head.
20) Spicy Girls
This band became popular because of those stupid teen girls of the 90s who wanted to be like them. Teens are always the worst crowd in music, since those are who made bands like Spice Girls popular.
