Sacred Cows


#1

Been listening to the john robins/elis james podcast and they do a good feature called Sacred Cows, where they discuss what feted bands arent all that.

Which much loved band would you say are wildly over rated?


#2

led zeppelin

stole all their songs, can’t play.


#3

^THIS, but for the rolling stones


#4

100% Led Zeppelin for this. I’ve always found them to be completely unlistenable.


#5

zGHQb4O


#6

yeah them too.

i don’t think LZ cant play, i just wish they wouldn’t, except jimmy page and the singer they’re rubs


#7

Radiohead
The Beatles


#8

Cant accept The Beatles


#9

Queen, obviously


#10

some of Macca’s songs are alright I suppose


#11

Me neither. SO overrated


#12

Yup. Apart from Under Pressure, I can’t understand why people like Queen at all.

I’ve tried really hard to appreciate The Pixies, Pavement and Sonic Youth but they just sound a bit amateurish to me.


#13

This might be the worst opinion in the history of the DiS forums


#14

beatles do have a ton of absolutely shite tunes. always thought of them as more of a ‘culturally important’ band than an actually good one.


#15

Nahhh. They were such an amazing amazing band. Could do anything. They had some dross for sure but they more than made up for it.

The fact they were a band for 10 years and went from the moptops to what they became is crazy


#16

imagine pretending not to like led zeppelin


#17

I also find Frank Black’s voice incredibly irritating.


#18

the only decent pixies songs are written by kim deal though right


#19

Bob Dylan, Mozart, Nick Cave, David Bowie, Prince


#20

wrong.
