How is BOTDF overrated? - ProPanda

3 Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony

Don't write their own music, have crass lyrics that wouldn't be too out of place in a bad Carry On film & their music is banal pop with no flavour. The worst group currently out there, simply because they are emblematic of everything wrong with pop music these days. - Mrveteran

I heard that one of the members was arrested for taking drugs. - Croy987

Girl groups are also complete and absolute trash. - Lucretia

I love them - 0744rose

This person I know is obsessed with them for some reason I need a police detective to solve... - Lucretia

And the award for most painfully unoriginal list goes to... - Jackamalio

They're okay. Better than the spice girls at least. People say they're underrated because they aren't known from outside their hometown. don't they tour or something? Their songs are on the fm all the time especially hair and some other one. They have good voices, better than that kpop stuff

Come on. I admit they're overrated. But bad, no. Yes. they've ripped off some songs. But there are some songs which aren't ripped off. You can call them overrated but not bad. Their songs never bored you (if you liked them). And you suddenly become a hater of LZ when you heard they ripped off some songs. so the songs you used to listen weren't worthy? The time when you used to enjoy their songs are all in vain? - zxm

We aren't talking about Billie Joe Armstrong. Green Day isn't only Billie Joe Armstrong. Remember Tre Cool is also a member of the band. And he isn't bad. - zxm

Green Day's a tad overrated but they aren't bad by any means.

Billie Joe Armstrong IS American Idiot. The irony of his own stupidity completely escapes him.

Honestly, I think Green Day's kinda underrate. At least albums like 21st Century Breakdown and Insomniac are - ProPanda
