Which musicians or bands do you deem to be over-rated? Over-rated does not always mean 'shitty'. I'll pick 3 to start....this may aggravate some but this only personal opinion. In no order are my 3 most over-rated musicians:

Kiss
Ozzy Osbourne
Bob Dylan

These guys obviously are good at their jobs, I just think they get too much credit.

Me either.

My former college roommate and I agreed on just about every band but we've never seen eye to eye on Ratt.  I don't hate them but I find them very boring and generic.

Mine will be totally unpopular but:

Dimebag Darrell
Cliff Burton (although after hearing the bass higher in the mix I don't think so as much as I used to)
Vinny Paul
Axl Rose

The Beatles - while i think they are very good I dont think they are all the gushing-worthy that people engage in.

Same here.  I can appreciate most of the songwriting but I much prefer each member's solo output to the Beatles' catalog.  I really like Wings.

Agreed. I can't stand The Beatles and I totally dig Wings. I can't stand GnR or Pantera either.

I think George's solo material is very good as well.

I'm actually with him on Hendrix.  I like Hendrix' guitar playing but I find his vocals REALLY lacking.

I really like Aenima but other than that I could take or leave Tool.

I actually like them, but don't understand what the big deal is. Plenty of other bands that blend alternative and progressive styles, but do it much better and more interestingly.

I've been planning on looking more into George's solo stuff, I only know a handful of songs. Other than a couple of songs I am not into Lennon's solo stuff either so add him to my overrated musicians list.

In my book Wings far surpasses the Beatles.

Elvis! All he did was do what black artists were already doing, but because they all lived in white America, they would never get the credit they deserved. If Elvis was black, he would not be called the king of rock n roll.

Paul McCartney - I love The Beatles but F*ck him and F*ck Wings!!

The Edge - Maybe guitarists can explain what's so great about this guys cause I haven't a clue.

Level 42 - Okay this is a reach because they are awesome musicians but then they used all that talent to make some of the most turgid uninspired dog poo pop music of the '80s . Slap,Slap. slappedy bass slap!!

Coldplay - What the hell are they?

Kirk Hammet - Those who listen to a lot of metal don't over rate him but the guy was once voted best guitarist in the world!

Ted Nugent & Kiss - Same reason as Ratt. (although Ted nearly gets a pass because I quite like Some Amboy Dukes

Iron Maiden - They are very talented but in no way deserving of 37 years of godlike adoration

Man, I hate these threads. What starts out as "I don't get [band X]" usually devolves into "I hate [every popular band]".

The Beatles? Over-rated musicians? Go eat a strawberry.
