    Oasis, like U2, seems to be a very polarizing band. People seem to either love them or hate them. I grew up listening to BritPop acts like Suede, Oasis, Blur and Pulp during my teenage years. I love 'em all! But I can understand if some people don't.

    Oasis strikes me as much too derivative but I do think they had some good songs. Champagne Supernova is pretty awesome.

    The Beatles to me too are really overrated, more so than Oasis in terms of my ranking of them. Theres quite a number of bands which I just dont see what the appeal is to them, like slayer, kiss, queen and guns n roses. Slayer though is the one that gets me the most, the bandwagon come into play with them I believe.

    I agree, the feuding brothers storyline helped with that too. I never saw the appeal, I think the Stone Roses first album is far better than anything Oasis ever did. I'd say Joy Division are still godlike to a huge amount of Manc's though.

    I love 'Disco Strangler' and its probably my favorite song on that record. I had it on a 45 (b-side to the Long Run I believe) and found that I really dug that tune. Great guitar riff and cool drums. I like it.

    People seem to hate the album because of the stupid simplicity argument. Its an overused term simplicity.

    I love the album. Lots of people expect Megadeth to somehow replicate Rust In Peace or Endgame MK II.

    lol Yeah even though I dig Slayer's classic albums I think they're the most overrated band in metal period. Not necessarily in music but metal yes.

    Yeah. I for one don't want to hear the same album over and over. However, there just isn't thing on Risk that was very memorable to me.

    Risk is memorable for most for how bad it is. lol

    For me though I'm just a very weird person and find it better than The World Needs A Hero.

    Lemme see here....

    I like Oasis.
    I think the Beatles are overrated.
    There are maybe only about 10 Rolling Stones songs I like. Everything else just exists at best.
    I think Jimi Hendrix was a great guitarist and solid sing but wildly inferior lyricist and songwriter for his level of talent.
    The Greatful Dead may have been the worst thing to ever happen to 60's rock
    I don't see the appeal of Joy Division.
    Guns N' Roses is one of my favorite bands
    I think "Chinese Democracy" is a really good album (I own it on CD and vinyl)
    I think "All of My Love" and "Tears in Heaven" are terrible songs.
    Also, I find almost every single thing Eric Clapton has done boring at best.
    I actually really like some of Miley Cyrus's songs, especially "Wrecking Ball" (and I don't really feel good about it)
    Also, "Call Me Maybe"
    I think Tom Waits is a better singer than Geddy Lee, Mick Jagger, John Lennon, and many others.
    I think all Rush songs sound more the same than Ramones songs.
    "The Final Cut" is a top 5 Pink Floyd album for me.


    and that's all I've got for now but I know there are others.
