I gotta say the Datsuns are overated (although they have faded away and been swallowed by a wave of imitators ala Korn)

People claiming that they were the start of this massive garage rock revival thing when bands like Turbonegro or even the Hellacopters have been on it for years.

Controversial. I like it 8) .


i think if you had only heard god hates us all and anything after it, then you would feel they are overrated, im pretty sure thats how id feel, i know i feel they sound like shit now.

the sex pistols are overrated, simply because john lydon rates himself so highly, and the ignorant media did/does too.

yeh exactly, most musicians into heavy music don't think of them as anything new and amazing and know they are rather generic, but many enjoy their songs, like myself.
I would not call them OVERRATED at all.

alot of the bands in this thread are not overrated at all , they have crafted styles and led their genres for years.

Basically invincibly untouchable from start to finish.

I liked God Hates Us All too, a hell of a lot better than Diabolus.

everything that makes it to the mainstream in nz is overrated.

I like some mainstream stuff from overseas, because people have higher standards over there.
(especially hanson)
Obviously yes there is a lot of crap too but I can't name one band on nz radio that is good.

I like 'Eight' alot, same with Salmonella Dub... both of which get airtime. I think the golden age of Flying Nun was a great time, so if you want to hear great NZ music (music that has made NZ famous) then check out...

the Chills, the Clean, Tall Dwarfs, Chris Knox, 3Ds, Bailter Space, Garageland, the Able Tasmans, Straitjacket Fits, High Dependency Unit and so on... hell even the Hasselhof Experiment, Dimmer or Headless Chickens.

Bailter Space and HDU being my favourites ofcourse :D

PS, I forgot...Superette! They were cool...

Haha, fuck off you asswipe. If you hear the trash (pun!) that makes it to radio in the US...

Listen to cheesy American dude on 91zm on Sunday evenings playing America's top 40. Theres no difference.

Idiot.

Sweet Moses what is your problem? Trash had an opinnion which she expressed, and you have a right to shoot it down if you wish. Why the "asswipe" "idiot" comments? Was Trash talking to you directly?
