List five musicians that you think are overrated by people who look like they care if they look like they don't care how they look, and something that you prefer to listen to instead!

:::::::Mine are::::::

1. Cat Power - I like what I've heard, but not enough to care. I like to listen to Liz Phair instead. She was fucking fantastic.

2. Nick Cave - Meh whatever I'll take a Jim G. Thirlwell over that any day.

3. Tom Waits - I can't understand the interest. It's wierd like Tim Burton. I am waiting on a Tom Waits action figure from McFarlane toys. I like Hayden for wierd gruffness, though I don't really think it's any good comparison.

4. Sleater Kinney - Bores me. I want a 7 year bitch, a babes in toyland, a phallus uber alles, a hole, the gits, anything but sleater kinney.

5. David bowie - I LOVE david bowie. It's just that t rex is so fucking cool and nobody worships bolan the same way. Ok so he's repetitive and simple, but the sound is incredible like nothing I've ever heard. And the lyrics are gold.

" Baby mystic lady
you do own my night
put my dogs to fright
yea yea yea yea yea

riding sliding sorceress
in your dungarees
got me on my knees
"

1. 'Razorlight'. Tosser rock straight out of some tosser club in a tosser part of the English south. For some reason they sing about living in America, even though they don't. Give me Hendrix.

2. Guns N Roses. What the fuck is this band? Some ginger wanker singing like he's in Lynrd Skynrd, backed up by some arsehole in a top hat and some other talentless guitar tuggers. Give me Hendrix.

3. The Beatles. It's cool to like the Beatles because it's ironic to like them. We have entered the world of post-irony now, so disregard them. They were a bunch of kids from South Liverpool who sang songs about where they lived a lot, in a style stolen from black people. Give me Brian Wilson.

Death Cab...I don't mind one of their albums before they got cummed on by the O.C. If the O.C was a balloon, I'd pop it. Right away. I'd much prefer to listen to Dishwasher or Dntel

i'm lucky enough not to give a fuck about "every generic hipster"-- i would not give them control of my life. cat power & sleater kinney are in their own way far superior to liz phair. but that has to do with my ears rather than anybody else's opinion. i think people who worry too much about what others think generally suck. but that's just my opinion anyway. and opinions are like assholes, etc.

I guess I don't really know who/what a generic hipster is, unless we're talking the Pitchfork site. I hate Pitchfork. Even when my opinions match theirs.

I have different favorite Bowie albums (Diamond Dogs, Lodger, Station to Station) then every generic hipster and know of the awesomeness of T-Rex.

And Tom Waits is a funny guy. His music would fit in a Jean Pierre Jeunet film, of which Delicatessen is by far the best (most generic hipsters have only seen Amelie and maybe City). You can't beat the rhythmic sex scene.

Who the hell bases their opinion of a band on what other people think of them? I like to form my own opinion on an artist based on the quality of music, not what the douchebag next to me thinks.

it's a good movie. not supergood. unusual for its time, yes. marvelous and forever magnificent no.

by the way i forgot to add almost every day i listen to "the greatest" lp and never do i fail to be moved by the ineffable beauty of that deceptively simple record.

I don't mean I dislike these bands because other people like them, but that I dislike them because I think they sound uninteresting. And since I think they sound uninteresting I can't understand the large amount of critical acclaim they get in the "indie circle". And I'd like to understand better than I'd like to be presumed shallow, thanks.

I figured this would be a good topic since there are so many overrated musicians around, and so many conflicting opinions. Maybe not so much?

Liz Phair??? not sure she is much better than Chan of Catpower (except this latest Catpower piece of mainstream garbage) at least well a few years ago, i mean remember Lilith Fair? she played that thing w/ a bunch of other ladies that everyone (at least the majority of the younger female category) seemed to be hip to and boy ever since "Exile in Guyville" she has sold out immensly and that album came out well over 10 years ago.

7 Year Bitch, Babes in Toyland, L7, and especially Hole??? its like golly i don't need to hear another "Girl Grunge Band" again thank you and especially one that has someone has obnoxious of a frontwoman like Courtney Love... yikes. Sleeter Kinney runs circles musically around any of these bands in my humble opinion.

my list of bands that i'm annoyed about in this context:

The Liars
Black Dice
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Wolf Eyes
Interpol
The Strokes
The White Stripes
The Fiery Furnaces
The Shins
Devandra Banhart
The Ponys
The Walkmen
etc etc etc...
