One Direction.

You can decide for yourself which category they come into. :santa:

Everyone will most likely have their own idea on this, based on their musical preferences..  Here's mine...

(I'm an old fart so this is 'old fart music')...
Under rated...
Al Stewart - consistently great songwriting and playing fromthe late 60's until today (weirdly enough he even sounds the same)...
The Moody Blues - people are either devoted fans, totally unimpressed or oblivious to them...
Gordon Lightfoot - a legend in Canada, virtually unknown anywhere else...

Over rated:
Almost all of the clone-like pop singers out there...

For over-rated.... Coldplay!  I can't stand them, think the lead singer has the most depressing voice ever.

Underrated? Fairport Convention

Overrated? I'm with Taun (plus 'c'rappers)

Hmmm... well, here's my opinion:

Overrated-Counrty music stars. Most of them were just as talented as every church choir singer, but they just went into a recording studio and read the words on the paper into the fancy mic. In my opinion, thats not being a musician. Writing your own music and performig music that you have written is being a musician. Well, i think playing covers of good bands is alright, it just bugs me when musicians get a free ride by singing music written by poeple that will never be recognized for the beautiful music they write, because someone else comes along that people will like more for their looks than their music. Its not only in counrty music, and some country music artists aren't this way but i personally see it most in counrty music.

Underrated- Classical musicians, small town rock bands, violists... lol :P

“Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate,
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I, Shall take the hidden paths that run,
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”

Overated... 98% of the trash you hear in the charts.

Underated... All the bands, singers, musicians, composers and producers who struggle to make money, but still carry on because they have a deep passion for the music they love.

Not in any order:
  • The Spice Girls and any one of them that launched a solo career
  • Will i am: Great musical genius but can't sing for toffee.
  • Yoko Ono: No need to explain her being on my list.
  • Justin Beiber: I just can't stand him.
  • Bjork.
  • Bette Midler.
  • Anyone from the Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, Pop Girl that brainwash the kids into thinking their good.
  • Justin Beiber: I just can't stand him.
  • Paris Hilton.
  • The Cheeky Girls.
I think thats enough for now, I am going to play my showaddywaddy Cd's to remind me of what real music is all about, righ after I have danced along to "Black Lace's" Agadoo.

Oh yes she did! Called 'Paris' and released in (2006). It made #1 on the hit list (in Turkey!) Personally I think the word 'turkey' says it all!

Correct. Called 'Heiress Records' and associated with Warner Bros.

Paris Hilton ahs become a DJ now as well..... Well.. I wouldn't class her as a DJ, she can't mix or anything, she had an actual DJ with her who kept grabbing the mixer etc and sorting it for her. Such a joke.
