I think The Hometown Sweethearts are terribly over-ated. I mean, look at the fat gut on Nate and all those pounds that CB has on his flabby arms, jeez get some diet pills guys, its just not attractive 8)

The most overrated band clearly is #1 Dad, appearing every Sunday at 8:00 at the Crystal Corner--playing classic country hits and original material, much of it Junkers material.

people say the band I am in is overrated. if overrated means most patrons come and ask us 'holy shit when did you guys get so good and why didn't anyone tell me?', maybe we are.

but I can only see through these two eyes.

What makes The Kissers overrated? Because they are very popular and make a lot of people happy? I don't think they are overrated at all... they're excellent musicians, can cover just about any song you can think of, and have written some pretty good ones as well.

Most of the bands I've heard a lot about, went to see and been disappointed have been often in genres I don't care for as much ... so I don't feel that qualified to knock them down a peg. I guess I'm not feeling mean spirited enough today.

i know this thread is mostly all in good fun and joking around but how can any local bar band no matter how successful really be "over-rated"? its not like they are on MTV on the hour or anything, they are a local bar band from a town of 200,000 people

Just off the top of my head...
1. By repeatedly winning local "best ___ band" polls in spite of sucking.
2. By always getting the best slots at the best venues and events in spite of sucking.
3. By drawing large crowds in spite of sucking.
4. By their recordings always getting glowing reviews in the local press in spite of sucking.

Stop being polite: ..Most overrated..."The band I'm in"....
Please.
Everyone knows it's the Kissers.

Ouch! I think they're a fun, talented group with a hottie accordian player...but wait, that's another thread, isn't it?

Does the media hype and worship them all the time? Not that I know of. As far as sheer volume of "media mentions", I see Ben and/or Leo Sidron a whole lot more than I see the Kissers. And I'm not saying either of the Sidrons are overrated but they are "out there" all the time and the Kissers are not.

All I know is that when I go see the Kissers, which is maybe a couple times per year, I know I'll be having one helluva fun night.

LOL! bobbyray you have some valid points there...however a band gets the best slots at the best venues because they draw large crowds, and therefore often win best of polls for the same reason, so 1 through 3 all sort of flow together there...as for #4, the undeserving glowing reviews, I don't have an answer for that, however reviews are just one person's opinion and should be taken with a grain of salt good or bad
