Most over-rated band of all time

WARNING: SACRED COWS WILL CERTAINLY BE BUTCHERED ON THIS THREAD. PLEASE CONDUCT YOUR DISCUSSION PER THE CW GUIDELINES AND DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING SAID HERE PERSONALLY.

The "greatest band of all time" thread got me to thinking. Which can be dangerous...

I'll start, and illustrate why I posted the warning at the top of the thread:

IMO, the most over-rated rock band of all time would have to be Led Zeppelin. Followed closely by the Beatles.

Have to agree with The Beatles. I would put Pink Floyd on the list also.

I always figured your favorite would be Revolting Cocks...

I'll agree with Led Zeppelin, and maybe put the Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd shortly afterwards. Van Halen is yet another bar-band with a talented guitar player as far as I'm concerned. Not a band, but I've never been able to figure out why Billy Joel or Bruce Springsteen got more than the 15 minutes of fame they both deserved.

I'd have to disagree on the Beatles, though. I think they're great.

Doors and Floyd. Van Halen is way overrated too. They would have never had a hit song if Eddie didn't have, past tense, super 80's chops. It still sucked, but was good for getting layed.
