Top 10 Bands that Aren't Really Unique as People ClaimBoredJeff02 Some people claim these bands are unique and I don't see why cause their not. Please note this is just my opinion so avoid raging ok?
The Top Ten
"If you don't want to read contrary opinions, discussions and arguments..." Wow. There's a real disconnect, here. It's not a matter of not wanting to read such things. It's a matter of not letting error, and often pure nonsense, go unchallenged. There seems to be real aversion to debate on this site, due, in no small part, to the inability to defend assertions and opinions, and worse, the prevailing belief that an opinion should be honored simply because someone holds it. All opinions are not equal. If an opinion is not founded on some factual basis, if it has no connection to objective reality, it is worthless.
So you're saying that opinions need facts that if they aren't realistic via the same as everyone else their useless. Kinda beats the point of a opinion there, opinions don't need factual basis they are just opinions on what someone thinks of something. Lastly I think you're being a bit of a nuisance. - BoredJeff02
As has been mentioned, there is not such thing as a "unique" band or artist. An even larger point has been brought up, the propensity of TTT's largely mid-teens posters to their opinion is valid just because they hold it. Furthermore, they feel that dissenting opinion holds no value when compared to theirs. This is the primary reason that a few years ago, lists routinely got 1,000, 10,000, or even 100,000 votes. Now its lucky if a list gets 100 votes, everybody just left and did not come back.
It's a mix of Queen with the Eagles oh and copyright infringement=Led Zeppelin the most overrated rock band I've ever known. - BoredJeff02
Overrated - AnanyaV 8 Comments
Avenged Sevenfold is your average boring modern Metal band with nothing unique or special about them. - BoredJeff02
Synyster Gates is hell of a guitarist,his solo of afterlife is very difficult and fast.and about matt shadows his voice is great.but its true that they are little bit overrated. - zxm
@Rusty I'm not implying all Metal bands are satanic I have listened to metal Metallica, Black Sabbath and a bit of Judas Priest. I do know some bands try to be satanic but not all just calm down bro. - BoredJeff02
Sounds like every other generic wannabe Metal band I've ever heard but eh at least they don't try to be satanic. - BoredJeff02
If you're implying that all metal bands are satanic, you don't know/listen to metal. There is almost no satanic bands in history, bands like slayer, cannibal corpse, death, slipknot as examples aren't satanic. Now black metal talks about Satanism but most of those bands don't believe or support that, now Norwegian black metal is another story. - RustyNail
Generic, bland and boring enough said. - BoredJeff02
Linkin park has great musicians but there music isn't that unique.the only bands I'll say unique will be queen,beatles,the who,kinks,deep purple,the mothers of invention,blue oyster cult,ramones(yes they are unique because their music was different),pink floyd...etc - zxm
Wo,wo,wo,wo,wo calm down visitor,I am just giving my opinion.by the way queen,pink floyd were unique,aren't they? cause you said nothing about them. - zxm
ZXM: Do you know the meaning of "unique? "--because you're misusing it. After their cover days, the Beatles approached uniqueness. The Who broke new ground along with the Kinks, but like the Beatles, they still were building upon what came before them. The Mothers were an updated version of Spike Jones...etc. Unique does not mean "different."
In the early 70s, Cooper and company were about as close to unique as there was. Only somewhat similar act was fronted by Arthur Brown.
Alice Cooper isn't really unique the sound is replaceable and the singing's ok but not special or different. - BoredJeff02V 1 Comment
They are known as one of the most generic bands and they use costumes and make-up to conceal it. Same for Slipknot and Ghost. - Metal_Treasure
Unique in that they were the worst garage band in history to achieve fame and fortune, owing more to Madison Ave. than talent.V 2 Comments
ACDC isn't unique but they are good at playing with guitars I guess. - BoredJeff02
"They are good at playing with guitars, I guess." Seems all you can do is guess. AC/DC is immediately recognizable, which sets them apart from most bands. The word "unique" is often misused, as it is on this list. It means literally "one of a kind." Exclusive. NONE other exactly like it.
Can't think of ANY band from any era that qualifies. "Playing with guitars."
You're not a musician, are you?
I might not be a musician but I never said they were recognizable their quite generic. Being unique is having a original style something this band doesn't have. You claim it's being misused but it isn't, lastly So what if I said their good at playing with guitars. That's the only thing that makes up for them not being unique maybe you should think before you type, and I hope you stop arguing with me cause I've had enough all you do is try criticizing this list because of things I've said that aren't really aggravating. Now goodbye cause I got a life to fulfill. - BoredJeff02
"Being unique is having an original style...You claim it's being misused, but it isn't." By what authority do you think you can redefine words? Unique has a very specific meaning. It does NOT mean what you think it means. Moreover, no band has an "original style." Allowing for some degree of variation, EVERYTHING has been done before.
Another generic wannabe Metal band with maybe 1 okayish song. - BoredJeff02
Nothing is unique about this band they sound like The Beatles mixed with The Rolling Stones - BoredJeff02
For once I agree with this one. The Doors were influenced by British bands like The Beatles, The Zombies etc... They certainly didn't invented a new style. You only hear that it is The Doors because of Jim Morrisson's voice, otherwise... (? )
"Beatles mixed with the Rolling Stones? " Get yourself to an audiologist. Hopefully, it's just ear wax.
Might not be unique but still has relatable songs which is why I like TDG. - BoredJeff02
While they may seem to be a run-of-the-mill band, people need to realize that they were one of the first of their kind. None of the bands listed above them would have ever made it to where they are if it weren't for The Beatles. - TheEvilNuggetCookie
They made Rock music exist so their kinda unique and without them a lot of good Rock music wouldn't be relevant. - BoredJeff02
If you look at it, they were just one of the first boy bands. They just made music that was critically acclaimed and commercially successful. - SwagFlicks
Sgt Pepper was unique. But everything before was boy band-esque. - IronSabbathPriestV 1 Comment
"Satanic band! ",they've never been a satanic band. Bruce Dickinson said it himself. - zxm
They have a more unique metal sound then Metallica why are they on this list? - BoredJeff02
Iron Maiden on this list is plain ridiculous. - Metal_Treasure
Aw... jealous people
it doesn't matter if you add this - Ananya
Kinda agree this band was a bit generic. - BoredJeff02
I don't recall people saying Green Day was unique their a good punk band but they aren't unique and no one that I can think of has called them unique. - BoredJeff02
Green day aren't unique,but hold on,who said they are unique? so they don't fit in the list. - zxm
Yeah sounds like every other wannabe Metal band out there also they suck live. - BoredJeff02
He just flat out copies other artists. The only ones still following him are angsty teenagers.
