Dookie was titled perfectly, that's exactly what it was, as is anything from Green Day.

What does "overrated" even mean? Musically?

Then how is Dave Matthews Band overrated? They are popular, sure. But they are incredibly talented. Maybe you don't like Dave's songwriting, but I fail to see how that makes him/them overrated...songwriting comes down to taste. There is nothing overrated about the musicianship of that band.

Agree with you here, I'm not a fan of Matthews vocals, but they can sure play.

I think every band with some measure of popularity are to varying extents, overrated. The Beatles are a good example. Their longevity as artists and the evolution of their work are traits to be praised, which makes them great, but I'd say their cultural relevance for the 60's, as well as their influence in other genres, is what makes them rated as greater. I find that those who love classic Britpop (i.e. The Stone Roses, Oasis) are more likely to find more common ground with liking The Beatles than others who find other styles of music their cup of tea.

I'll admit that I liked Green Day and Offspring when I was 12-13, back when Dookie and Smash came out. Looking back on it, both bands were/are no more than a fad to me now. That might sound harsh, but their older works became annoying to say the least, which makes their newer stuff not worth delving into, in my book.

Personally, I never cared much for Tool or A Perfect Circle. I roll my eyes at Tool fans who think that folks who don't like their music lack musical intelligence, but for some reason or other, I can't get myself to like their music. Quite simple really. I like my music with a faster pace, more riffs, more solos, and well, meaner.

i see i'm not alone in thinking the beatles are overrated


I'm not saying you're wrong, but why exactly do either of you think the Beatles are overrated? They're not in my top 10 either, but we can't ignore what they did for music.


because of exactly that, i'm basically judging them based solely on their music which i think is overrated. they have some good songs and a few very good songs but overall they're pretty overrated imo.

Because everything that Dave Mathews does sounds exactly like everything Dave Mathews does....it sounds like music you'd hear in the Gap. :-D

That's very true of the DMB songs that everybody's heard of, the ones you've heard on the radio :-P . However, there are 3 or 4 songs that I really really enjoy, especially the stuff he did with Reynolds. #27, Gravedigger, and The Maker are great songs.

I'm not sure what kind of music they play at the Gap, but if they play DMB then I'd surely enjoy it. I happen to be a big DMB fan, but understand why many aren't. Dave's voice really is peculiar and a band that substitutes electric guitar with violin and saxophone will definitely turn some people off. That said, the band is immensely talented. So again, I don't really understand how they are overrated. Whether or not you like their style seems a separate issue.
