Jimmy Buffett. Nice, island music, but he really, really can’t sing. At all. At all.

There's a lot to be said about the CanCon issue...bands in the 80's and 90's that got tons of airplay in Canada because of the Canadian Content requirements. So many bands from that time got a lot of airplay, then suddenly disappeared. I suspect many of these bands never actually had the fan interest to match the airplay that they got. But that's one for another thread probably.

It's hard for me to say a band is overrated; I've always been a believer that popular music is big enough for everyone, and I've never spent enough time listening to band I dislike to develop a real hatred for them.

I want to hate Nickelback for their misogynistic, fratboy anthems. But having seen them in concert four times (once before they were signed), I can't deny they are good players and a very good live band.

The Doors are a band who are widely admired, but I never got them. Def Leppard is one of the few bands I've developed an active disliking for.

As for a band that is loved worldwide, and I never thought was particularly good at anything musical...I'll say AC/DC.

Matt Good is another overrated singer. I've seen him in Kamloops, and he was off key the entire time.

P.S. Somewhat related...

Rolling Stones, ...

Overall, one of the best rock & roll bands ever :smt045

Oasis. Overrated, over-hyped and not worth the pain in my ears.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.
