I definitely agree with your underrated bands, it's true! I don't know who The Feeling is, though.

I'd have to say that the show 'LOST' is HIGHLY overrated. It's boring and people are obsessed with it. As well as Laguna Beach and The OC. Madonna is pretty overrated; I mean, cmon. She's like, 50, and people still go nuts over her shaking her middle-aged flab on the dancefloor in spandex. Nothankyou. :( (Sorry Madonna fans!)

MySpace is also really overrated! Don't even get me started on that. As far as overrated games, I agree with you about FF games.

I agree with you on those ones.
Although I felt Final Fantasy IX was really good, but was way overshadowed by Final Fantasy VII and X.

So how comes when I made that thread about AOD being so popular, everyone was saying "that's a new one on me" if I say AOD is popular, people say it's not.
If I say it's unpopular, people say it's popular.

t.A.T.u. - Underrated, people always look at the gimic... and not there music... when truely they have awsome and very powerful vocals... especially lena :D I mean they get there attention from time to time... but its never for the right reasons.

Paris Hilton - Underrated, people never give her a chance at anything... they hear her name and then just give up.

Flyleaf - Underrated, Never hear about them getting awards or anything when really they are alot better then alot of bands being praised today

The song " Sexy back " - Overrated, i hate how it basically repeats the same thing over and over again

Nelly Furtado - Overrated, Her old music wasnt making her any money so she became a sell out and jumped on the im a whore bandwagon, down with her and her sell out ish wayyyyys!

I think it depends were you claim that it's popular/unpopular...
You'd probably get a different answer let's say in the AoD thread and a different in the Tomb Raider 1.

It's not too depressing, but I just can't stand his voice. I'm sure I'd like his songs if they were sung by someone who sounded different.

I mean come on, she has had more number1's than anyone posted
here... she has always stayed on top but people say she is past it,
and lately she has broken 2 records.
1. Biggest Grossing Tour By A Female Soloist.
2. Highest Paid Female Celebrity ...

Over-rated Singers...

1. Pussycat Dolls - Sorry, but i see nothing appealing about watching
that lead singer " dance " around with the rest of her " band " aka " backing singers "

2. Nelly F - Old Image wasnt working, so she tries to act cool... nuff said :p

Bonez
08-10-06, 16:21
Overated singers:

Madonna - No offence scion but i dunno Madonna is special because shes the highest paid female celebrity.
Britney Spears
Pussycat Dolls - I put them in singers because only one of them seems to sing.

08-10-06, 17:01
No, but i dont see the point in saying someone, with such an amazing career, who has done so much AIDS work etc, being called over-rated ...

Bonez
08-10-06, 17:42
I, and im sure other people to, dont at ALL think her charity work is overated.

I just think her music is overated.. she has some good songs like, imo, Sorry and die another day...
