Have An Opinion?
I chose U2 for the poll because Bob Dylan is an insanely talented lyricist. The songs that come to mind are the ones that come on in a bar and everyone stops for a moment and sings at the top of their lungs-- Don't Stop Believing, Simple Man, Sweet Child O Mine. But the bands are not necessarily overrated. Honestly, I forgot where I was going with that train of thought though.The big one that irks me is Selena. She was great and paved the way for a new style of music but man, people idolize the hell out of her in Texas-- dressing their daughters in risque clothing to look like Selena. Also, Nickelback.
Good choice and great reply 👏
Journey (and to a lesser extent) guns 'n roses are overrated in my mind, but there's no way I'll stand for anybody trashing SkynyrdWas Selena not a one-hit wonder? I gotta plead ignorance on this one
Thanks darlin. It's hard to feel that Journey is overrated because it's nostalgic for me.Selena had 3 singles (in english). People are obsessed with her-- which I kind of get because it was the first big representation from their culture and then she died tragically.
On second thought you're right. Journey isn't really overrated. They have a solid reputation and aren't often presented as superstars
I just talked to my dad about Journey. He was born in 68."Started as a rock band but realized they could make a ton of money doing pop stuff. I hate them soooo much." So I suppose not everyone feels the same way!
"I hate them soooo much" haha Do you have a favorite song?
Separate Ways! I'm a wicked air drummer. LolWhat about you?
Air drums huh? That's tough to pull off. Don't stop believin' is classic
Can you sing lead vocals too?
I don't like this Meghan Trainor one. I have a bartender friend who plays music videos in his bar, and one of her songs is on the playlist and somehow it annoys the hell out of me. Makes me want to throw my drink at the television. There's just something so annoying about this song to me. It's like listening to nails on a chalkboard.https://youtu.be/7PCkvCPvDXk
Just the music. The music video sort of bugs me but even if I'm not looking at it and just hearing the song, it sounds so obnoxious to me. Like, "SHUT DA FUCK UP! SHUTTTT UP! FUCK YOOUUUU! STFUUUUUUUUU!!!"
Her songs may be terrible, the only problem here is that most people agree.
I didn't realize she is so unpopular. I'm in Japan and sort of living under a rock with how all this stuff is received. I thought she was super popular since that video has so many likes compared to dislikes. :-D
Elvis. I don’t like his music and he was a shit human
A great choice that's not listed
For the poll I picked bob Dylan
Thanks I seriously considered listing Elvis but he just didn't make the cut☺
What was the criteria?
It's basically an estimation of overall popularity, contrasted against my opinion of talent. The process could never be mistaken as scientific
It's a toss up between Springsteen and Dylan. I'd like to also add SRP and Nirvana to rhe list. The only thing good about Nirvana is after Kurt cobain painted the walls with his brain is we got the Foo Fighters.
Dylan is a poet who has earned his stripes for 50 years.
Absolutely. He's definitely the most talented
Springsteen (in my opinion) wanted to emulate Dylan early on but it became too political and all about him. It's never been about Dylan. He doesn't even sing that well. He's reciting poetry with a little tune. I do "Knockin on Heaven's Door" including the slight NYC accent he picked up when he moved there at 19. Worked on the phrasing as well.
That's interesting. Springsteen definitely became too political, also used New Jersey over and over like a $20 whore
From the ones you listed- U2.
What about ones not listed?
It's a loooong list. Let's just say at least half of the new singers/groups are overrated.
I don't know any of those in the poll.
michael fucking jackson
All of the above!
1. Springsteen2. U23. Dylan
One direction BTS
U2 is the worst
