I still ask: please give examples. I know they have a lot of fans and fanboys, but they are one of very few bands/performers who deserve it, IMO, and I would like to ask everyone who said "The Beatles" in this thread to please just explain. I may just agree with you if you give a good reason, but "The Beatles are overrated" as if it's just obvious won't work on me.
Metallica, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin (specifically Stairway To Heaven)
Wishlist for DLC:
More: Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Slayer, Pantera, System Of A Down
new DLC bands: Sonata Arctica, and Iced Earth

Haha. This thread is pure troll bait. I love it.
Nickelback is *the* most overrated band. Rather than simply say this and then sit back and wait for the trolls to find me, I'll make my points more specifically:
Nickelback deserves nowhere near their levels of success, fans, money, or radio play. They are at best an average, journeyman band who wrote a couple of catchy tunes, have one HELL of a promotion machine, and got very lucky. I credit this to their apparent eagerness to sell out.
Chad Kroeger is nowhere near the edgy poet-composer some of his fans paint him to be, and should probably hand the keys off to someone else in his entourage before he downs his first Jack n' Cola of the evening.
I'd cut into the other members of the band, but I don't know them by name. I will say, however, that a band with this many albums should have displayed a modicum of musical and artistic growth by now.
You read it. You can't unread it.
Iron Maiden, Metallica, A Day to Remember, The Devil Wears Prada, Children of Bodem, Avenged Sevenfold... uh, those were on the top of my head. I can probably think of more later
Oh and now Dreamtheater is getting overrated but I cant blame, only get annoyed.
