Here's another over-rated band for you: Cradle of Filth. What the fuck is their appeal, exactly?

When were the Foo Fighters ever overrated?

Morbid - who the fuck would know, I was trying to stick to bands who could batter out something that sounded like music - even if it was over-rated. I mean I could've added Def Lep...

Dan - Any time the supposed subtle meaning of their music was highlighted or their quote unquote similarities to Nirvana or when there was anything above a 3 star rating on any of their albums, yes, even The Color and The Shape. Didn't you defend Metaliica previously? Your musical standing took a bashing there, your creditability about being a pundit in the musical sense just turned whimsical...

U2- Over-hyped, yes. Over-rated? Mmmmm... no.

Interesting list. However, on the over-rated list, I would remove Queen, and, in their stead, replace them with Coldplay. On the under-rated list, I don't know if I would remove any of them, but I would add Del Amitri.
