OH-VER-RATE-ED!! (clap-clap-clapclapclap)

“Ever felt you’re missing the point with some of our biggest cultural heroes? Admit it – everyone can name at least one hip, wildly praised band, album, film, TV show or author that they’ve never really rated.” Critics have their own lists of overrated stars, too: could James Brown’s legendary performances be nothing more than “brass-driven aerobics workouts, over which he barks claims of his own magnificence”? Is Neil Young’s famously distinctive voice really “the exact timbre of a continental dial tone”? Is U2 an overrated trio of self-important rockers whose greatest talent is in the thieving of other bands’ ideas? (Okay, that last one isn’t exactly a secret.)
