Overrated REM and Radiohead both these bands could have released botty burp noises and Q magazine would still give them 5 stars

Murmer and Lifes rich pageant by REM are masterpieces

The Beatles are an overrated early covers band that were runners up in a talent contest. Luckily for them the winners could not take the prize so The Beatles went of to Germany instead. How many songs can you have with the word Love in the title. Now the Rolling Stones were true musicians before the Beatles with a great love of the Blues (And loved a cover version) 1962 to present

As for Paul Weller he is a God that has lasted over 4 decades, inspired generations and created and influenced youth sub cultures. With ever evolving music. Lyrics that poets would die for and chord progressions that composers can but dream about. He is certainly underrated I may be a bit biased As I think the man is a God

PS I don't mind the Beatles (Paul Weller loved them and plagiarised them) but its always fun winding up Beatles fans

You had me going there for a moment

I've never understood why the Beatles were so big there were a lot better songwriters and musicians around at that time, as for Paul Weller, I really like The Jam but his solo stuff is extremely boring and self indulgent, and I've seen him in concert twice and no one seemed to really enjoy it, and also without the Beatles there would be no Oasis and Gallagher brothers !

To an extent I think you had to be there at the time to fully appreciate the Beatles and what they did. I'm not sure what song writers and musicians you are referring to, but before the Beatles came along, and indeed for some time after their emergence, in the pop world songwriters and musicians tended to be two separate entities.

The first bit about them is true about the talent contest

Quite. REM took the millions when they went to Sony. The coffers filled and the music failed.

On topic no band ever more overrated than the clash or artist more overrated than elvis. What a load of fuss over a cabaret act

Most overrated the Beatles, utter garbage.

I wouldn't want to be at a party when you're the DJ.

Only play indie music, which is a minority interest these days. Bit of the Smiths, stone roses, New Order, pulp etc.

Wouldn't play Coldplay or Dylan at a party: unless I was handing out a cyanide cocktail!
