x2

everyone only knows those three songs from nevermind and that's it.

What three??

Aneurysm, Dive and Hairspray Queen?

Those were not on "Nevermind"

I can see people knowing Smells like Teen Spirit, Lithium, In Bloom, Come As you Are, Polly, Lounge Act,..etc

+ The bonus at the End.

Bon Jovi.

They haven't released anything decent since circa 1988 yet they still managed to achieve the highest grossing tour of 2010. Their fans are made up mostly of little girls who cry when Jon Bon Jovi walks on stage. How sad!

I don't know , but the most underrated by far is Thin Lizzy.

I happened to see them in London at the weekend with Scott Gorham & Vivian Campbell on lead guitars and Ricky Warwick on lead vocals. It was one of the best gigs I have been to. I picked up a live CD of the gig immediately after the show was over. If you like Thin Lizzy's music you might want to check out the deluxe editions of their albums that have just been released. Another underrated band has to be FM (the band that opened for Thin Lizzy). I didn't even know of them, until I saw them at the weekend, even though they've been around since 1984 and have released 11 albums. Also checkout Ricky Warwick's solo work, it's awesome and totally underrated.

that's what I'm saying, Nirvana is defined by those three songs (even though they are good).

the rest of nirvana's stuff is very different and liked by people who are very different (weird) so it's always interesting to find out who's a true fan and who's just a Nevermind poser

I agree, I like those songs but they are not even in my top 5

My top 5 Tongue

1. Drain You
2. Sliver
3. Scentless Apprentice
4. Sappy
5. Mollys lips or In bloom

Number 1 is solid, the rest maybe I could change positions, what's your's top 3-5?

Come as you are was the first I heard of them and is still my favorite.  but for me Nirvana is one of those bands where I can listen to a whole album and like it and never really have a favorite.  with most bands I'll have a few songs I like and some I don't like but with nirvana I like most all of it.

Honestly, I had Nevermind and Utero.  I just think they are put on bit too high of a pedestal compared to the other "Seattle scene" bands who were better, imo.

The Beatles by a long shot!!!

Actually, i'll agree with this, and i think they're the best band ever.  But they get farrrrrr too much credit than they ever deserve.

Violence is not the answer. It is the question.

The Doors.

Seriously, they had some kind of resurgence in the early 90's (popular w/ college kids) and every single one of their songs sucks fucking ass.

Radiohead makes some excellent music. just because it's not the easily digestible Pop crap that you enjoy doesn't mean it's not good. they are universally lauded by music critics worlwide

Like someone else said....people are just naming bands they don't like....not ones that are overrated.

Oasis....now that's an overrated band...because they really have not lived up to the hype and really didn't do jack-shit to begin with.

By the same token you can't say U2 is overrated...They have produced 4 or 5 seminal records, still make decent music and fill arenas year after year after year.

Maybe you don't like them, but they aren't "overrated' by any stretch, they are a huge band and live up to the accolades

Totally agree with 2 of these opinions.Im not into Radiohead or U2 but to call them over rated is a joke.theyve had several good albums each and still sell out anytime they play arenas.
I dont like the Oasis comment though.In the UK anyway last year when they were still playing gigs they were selling every ticket in under an hour.Not any band does that in the UK that i know.Theyre first 2 albums are easily up there with any album thats ever been released, and various polls over the last 10 years agree.Theyve been kinda shit for a while, but definetly NOT over rated

I don't think kiss is overrated.

I just think they're not nearly as hardcore as they dress up to be, or their fans make them up to be.
