this: appreciating a band/singer's talent, artistry, but just not really caring for their music. For me Prince is like that also. I fully recognize his talent... I just don't care for his music much.

I know precisely zip about the Sex Pistols. laughing smiley

Sometime, however... I can become a HUGE fan of bands JUST because of their talent. Dream Theater is like that for me... love them, because of their talent... but at the same time I don't really love any of their songs.

I know about them because of their fans. I have listened to a little but surprisingly its not for me. But definitely major talent.

RamUK would have me diced into wee pieces for this but I think of the Sex Pistols kind of like Nirvana. They started a movement. A significant change in music and influenced a generation. Hard to say they are overrated from that perspective. The difference is that Nirvana had excellent musicians although I am a little underwhelmed with Cobain's guitar playing. And I only say that because he is consistently named in the top 50 (or whatever) guitar players. I wouldn't think anything of his playing if he wasn't so highly touted.

An interesting question might be: What is an overrated song that you like? But I am not coming up with anything for that. LOL smiley
