    Default Overrated muscians.

    I am so sick of people who make a musician out to be better than they are.

    Joey Jordison for an example. All these pro-mainstream idiots hail him as the "Greatest drummer ever" when Chris Adler, from Lamb of God, is equal to him, hell even my own drummer is equal to him.

    Same goes to Travis Barker. Not that good at all. Hell I even think Joey is better than him.


    I also dislike people who make Angus Young out to be the greatest guitar player ever, I'd like to see him do half the stuff Vai can do. Same goes for Clapton and Slash(esspecially Slash).


    So time for you to rant about who you feel is an overrated musician.

    And for the record, I don't dislike any of them as muscians because they are just doing their thing, its the people who make them out to be more than they are.

    Have you seen the joey jordison do his drum solos. How can you think that is overated. And my friend said you can talk to him and you would change your mind about slash.

    Yes, actually this thread was fueled after I watched a video of him soloing. It was the most basic drumming ever, but done faster.


    I won't ever change my mind about Slash, he's hella overrated, and not that good.

    No, but I know many drummers, and the drummer of my band.

    And it doesnt matter if I play or not, I know if someone is good or not, and Joey is not as good as people make him out to be. There are hella metal bands that could destroy him in a drum battle.

    Not forgetting the number of jazz drummers who could destroy him ;)

    To be fair though, you're unlikely to know people who're as good as Joey, i know several drummers who can play everything Joey's ever recorded, even the infamous Joey solo, but to have that level of consistancy and style is more than just drumming ability.

    I agree there but how does that make him overated.

    Because 92% of teenagers ride his cock and say he's the best drummer ever... which isn't true.

    Put that in your fucking profile.

    I think Led Zepplin takes the cake, the numero uno of overration. And Eric Clapton may be a little over hyped, but i like him. It was more of his sound rather than his skill.

    But overration(is that even a word?) comes from people not the artist. Casu their are alot of good muscians that are over hyped and its not their fault. Most people ive met over rate things based on opinions of other people. Like everyone i know also says "Led Zepplin is god", and then i say "Why?" but they don't know.Same goes with any artist, it seems like one person syas their god so it must be true. And i as i wrote this i just rmeeber the most unpopular but overrated artist ever. GG Allin. I always see fan sites saying he is the greatest, but they never say why. Appearantly is you poop and beat uo people while hurting yourself while be naked your some how considered "good". GG was a joke, and i can't beleive i once liked him. It took awhile to seek in but GG sucks. He didn't even sing worth ***** all his songs were about pooping and rape and occasianly hanging out.




    p.s Also Pink Floyd is actually underated. And by this i mean no one truley respects them as a band, thier just onather t-shirt design. Their are proably more pink floyd shirts than their cds in exestinace. They become a fashion icon and that sucks becasue they are truley great. And for the most part i mean The early stuff with Syd Barrett. Most people don't even know who he is. He in my eyes is one of the greatest musicinas.

    Dream Theater's drummer, Mike Portnoy, is the double bass drums god.
    look him up if you don't beleive me, just cause DT is underground doesn't mea thta it does have a huge fanbase. they just don't get air time cause their songs are long.
