I know this thread is kinda similar to a old post that was about movies, but mines just gonna to be about anything that you belive is overratted. Whether it be a band, a moive, anime, style of clothing, etc.
However....I want a civilizied conversation. Anyone who just says that (insert whatever you want) sucks, will only lead to flaming and arguing. And I really hate reading through that crap.

One of my biggest grips is when people say that Nirvana is "one of the best bands" or something along those lines. I've never understood what is so great about Nirvana. Thier most popular songs lyric wise don't make any sense. I don't feel any emotion behind their music. And when people argue about whether or not he was murderd just kinda makes me a little miffed. Who cares? This guy married Courtny Love. He obvisously doesn't really have the best judgement. And now that slime is only popular because she was married to him. So when they added Nirvana in GH 2 it didn't make any sense either. If it's a game with awesome guitar riffs or a just a great guitar rythem, why is Heart Shaped Box in there? It's not diffecult. Anyway I'll think of more stuff later but that's been bugging my lately.

I was thinking about this yesterday. DDR seems to be a little overratted. I love playing DDR and it's fun, but I just see people who play DDR amazingly and still get mad that they don't get a triple A. Maybe it has to deal with more of crazy fans that want to be perfect. But it just doesn't seem to be that big a deal to me.

I think a lot of bands are overratted, such as greenday and my chemical romance. I like a few of their songs but people worship them, or used to.

I just think it's funny that kids today love green day and they think they are punk when they really aren't anymore. They hardly even know any of their old stuff.

i love green day. i've been a fan since before i can remember. I love their old stuff, but their new stuff is kickass too. They're still punk; they're just now mainstream.

Reality TV. There's so MOD-ing much of it and it's all more fake than the WWE! I think we have Survivor (the most fake and overrated show of them all) to thank for this trend.

I found a really kewl reality TV series.

Then I realized I was watching the news.

Baseball is overrated. I was watching the Yanks/Bosox game tonight at Applebee's (I was bored and it was all that was on), and all I could think of was when football starts up again.

Dolphins are going to PWN the Pats this year. Oh yeah.

Yeah I think America is in a state of dilusion about baseball. It's no where near America's past time anymore.

Football has become america's past time. But baseball will always live and thrive. It is a game of great skill that is loved by the world. Especially japan :) Plus baseball Live> baseball on TV.

Sports are definitely not all that matters but they certainly enhance life and entertain. I find nothing better than Watching/going to a cinci bengals game and screaming my lungs off :) Same with seeing the reds at great american ballpark with my grandpa! Nothing better :)
