    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    bohemian rhapsody.

    Was going to say exactly that. Seeing as you beat me to it, how about anything by the beatles?

  • In my book, being overrated is probably a worse crime than being old-fashioned honest sh!te - hmmmm, I've a mind to start a similar thread for films.
    Anyhow, I have never understood the appeal of Simple Minds, so I'll nominate anything by Simple Minds.

    Please leave this thread. :|

    Ps. Its hard to overrate The Smiths when they have been truly undervalued for many years. (Don't think they ever achieved a number 1?)

    My opinion though, obviously

  • Something by...
    ...the beatles?

    or...
    Imagine by John Lennon. Dull, dull, dull!

    And I wholeheartedly agree with this statement:

    And, of course, Oasis.

    Anything by Coldplay + 1 and then some. Music for bed wetters (As a great man once said)

    Can't believe it took 20 posts for Status Quo to be mentioned. Anything by them is utter 'dirge' ( a word my father-in-law uses. Did he make it up?).

    +1 for Imagine. 6th form lyrics & a Play In A Day piano hook.

    No-one's suggested Come On Eileen yet so I will. Unbearable record.

    According to Q magazine, the best song ever is U2 - One.

    Not necessarily the worst song ever but that is surely vastly over rating it.
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    A dirge is a type of song that would usually be sung to express mourning or grief. As a result they don't exactly fill the dancefloor.

    Imagine for me too, childish drivel that would have been embarrassing if it had been penned by an idealistic fourteen year old.

    owt by the Beatles and their rip offs Oasis - whats that one with the line 'she's got a sister and on the palm of her hand is a blister'
    Retarded monkeys banging on broken typewriters with their foreheads could come up with better.
