Metallica.

I can't stand their music. The old is boring and the new is downright awful.

Dream Theater

Sure, they own*, but they aren't the be all and end all of music.

Lamb of God

chugga-chugga-same-riffs-palm-mute-crappy-vocalist.

Coldplay

Sure, rush of blood and parachutes were good, but X&Y? Come on.




Now, what you do think? I'm sure I can think of more, but I'll leave it at this for now.

Pink Floyd is overrated simply because they get sooooo much hype no band could ever possibly live up to it. Still a fantastic band with lots of great material.

Dream Theater is certainly not overrated, most people outside of prog and metal don't even know who the hell Dream Theater are.

DragonForce, they think because that they can play fast that they are the greatest, but they suck live
plus their songs are all the same, lyrically and musically.
Not convinced?

*braces self*
*insert generic immature flame here*

I'd go with Queensryche.  Op: Mindcrime is a great album, but they're not in-f**king-credible.
U2 is another one.  They've got a few good songs, that's it.

Oh, and Dragonforce?

Queensryche are *not* overrated. Anyone outside of fanboys rate them just how they should, a band with a TON of awesome old material, and mediocre newer stuff. And they still pull off a live show that deserves all the respect they get.

  That dragonforce thing was HILARIOUS! I'm sick of people thinking they are the greatest band ever. I won't knock them (they've gotten a hell of a lot further in the music industry than me, even if I think they don't deserve it) but its like you always have to explain to people why other bands are good TOO, because people think Dragonforce is all they need because they are the best band

Pink Floyd absolutely does live up to the hype.

=)

I still think Dark Side of the Moon is the most perfect 40(ish) minutes of music ever created.

I don't understand you people.  It's Wish You Were Here that's perfect, not Dark Side of the Moon.  I mean, it's good, but it pales in comparison to the glory of Wish You Were Here. Tongue
