    Let's play the flip side. What's one of those bands that's well regarded that you never could see the appeal of? Whether critical appeal or popular appeal.

    Not looking to argue the merits of each, though that may happen.

    Easy to start:

    KISS.
    The Smiths

    Yall are gonna hate me!

    The Beatles, not because they stunk it up, they deserve to be highly rated, but not THAT highly rated.

    Clapton (see above), has some absolute classic tunes but more stinkers than not. Just bad as a singer.

    SRV (see above x3). what did SRV do that Jimi hadn't already done?

    I grant you they are all legit HOFers. But if you're talking overrated it's easier to hit the really, really, really rated.

    Same reason I listed the Stones. So many on here praise them so very highly. I like the Stones, but don’t understand the devotion they get here. Although this is a Tele forum....:twisted:

    Overrated how? In terms of record sales? If so, easy: Nickleback
