Most Overrated Hard Rock ArtistsShiviDIVI
The Top Ten
Christangrant and somekindofaguy, your comments are always based on ( and not only on this site ) covers by bands or individual artists. Led Zeppelin did covers, Elvis did covers etc... So what? Their covers are better than the originals. That's what makes artists like them great! Writing your own songs doesn't define talent. Led Zeppelin is overrated because they did a lot of covers? What about the talent as musicians of John Bonham? Jimmy Page? Robert Plant and John Paul Jones? If you're better or think that you're better and more talented, only then write something negative about Rock icons!
@Visitor Where did I or him say that we are better than Led Zeppelin besides I don't even hate Led Zeppelin, they "plagiarized" too many of their songs and yes this is a FACT all but one song on their debut were uncredited covers and the one song was just a boring instrumental. I prefer many hard rock artists over Led Zeppelin not just because they plagiarized songs but because the other artists make better music plus I'm allowed to have a negative opinion on Led Zeppelin its people like you that give their fans a bad name. - christangrant
I could write an entire song using the song titles of the songs they ripped-off
@Vistior "Writing your own songs doesn't define talent" then I guess The Beatles are bad because they wrote their own songs they did do covers guess by your definition those covers are their best songs - christangrantV 2 Comments
I agree - they are very overrated. - Metal_Treasure
Dissagree entireley at least AC/DC didn't ripoff loads of songs like Led Zeppelin did - christangrant
Bon Jovi is actually over hated. People say Bon Jovi's voice is bad, which is causeless.
I hate bon jovi - EliHbk
Nah here's a band that should be here except Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Guns n Roses...
I wouldn't call them underrated. They're extremely influential and, well, to put it bluntly everyone knows who they are. They're not overrated either though. - IronSabbathPriest
False they are Underrated - christangrant
Usually my opinion is very similar to IronSabbathPriest's but here I slightly disagree.
Many people have heard of Smoke On The Water or their name. And this is all. Even people who call themselves metal fans believe Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath invented metal when Led Zeppelin were never metal. Deep Purple were much more innovative and creative than these 2 bands but Deep Purple don't get the credits they deserve. - Metal_Treasure
What? They are the most underrated rock and metal band of all time.
They have been at #1 for long time on the list Most Underrated Rock Bands... - Metal_Treasure
Overrated in general.
They are a bit overatted but they are almost 5% hard rock...
That's why they're overrated. Only 5% of their songs are hard rock and yet they're in top of best hard rock bands. - zxm
Yes, while people think their only good song is Here I Go Again they are totally overrated, I agree!
No, try underrated - would be closer to the truth. - Metal_Treasure
They aren't overrated - christangrant
I believe the Who were classified as hard rock by mistake. Actually they are hardly hard rock, and rest of their songs are more like heavier art rock songs, because the classical influence on their music is easily audible. And their earlier songs in the middle '60s were beat/pop rock stuff played wilder.
Underrated is the better word to describe this band - christangrant
Haha, in fact they are very underrated. - Metal_Treasure
Wait a minute, how the hell this group didn't make it? Most overrated band in history. - MC1989
