    @ Dal: (Can't be arsed to quote)
    AC/DC wouldn't really be that good because all of their songs are the same. Granted, they're mostly good songs, but they're very... consistent... with their music.
    As for GnR, I can't say, because I don't really listen to them a lot.

    meh, different opinions

    Over-Rated:

    Ayumi Hamasaki: I blame her fans & producers for her being (possibly) the most over-rated JPOP artist of all time. Her fans & producers over-hype every album & single of hers as this untouchable piece of perfection...
    Her voice is decent, but she's definitely not the best singer out there (compared to Utada Hikaru, or the classic Yoko Oginome and Minako Honda). She can't handle any ballad without her voice breaking up, or her vocals occasionally turning nasally.

    I definitely enjoy her trance albums alot, but the rest of her catalog doesn't really do it for me. Plus her Happy Hardcore songs where her voice sounds like a 5-year old, really gives me a headache.

    Morning Musume: Music group of 25 girls (and counting), thank god these girls are incredibly cute, because that's what majority of the members have to offer. 20 of them are below-average singers, with a fraction of the other 5 being poorly used in this mega group even though this small handful can sing very well.

    Lil' Jon: "YEAH!" Is all I ever hear about this guy, I've seen alot of his lyrics but it's 90% of..

    Does he know how to write any meaningful lyrics? I don't understand why he's so popular..

    Soulja Boy: Not much I can say about this kid, comes up with a cheap two-step dance knock-off of MC Hammer's "Shuffle Dance", and hits #1 with an incredibly basic yet uninspiring track.

    :0 Something is definitely wrong here..

    Britney Spears: Her personal life aside, what I could say for her is about the same for Ayumi Hamasaki.

    Under-Rated:

    W (or Double-U): A JPop duo with alot of very catchy tunes that have unique rhythms & melodies. Yeah, they're cute, but with Morning Musume over-shadowing them, they didn't get far.. Former members of the Musume group that went solo, and got over-shadowed greatly, with their last album having been canceled and the group disbanded.

    Asian Kung-Fu Generation: Highly popular by their US fans, but not that special in Japan. They have the sound, and definitely the talent.. but aren't as big as they should be, simply because they don't have "the look". Group of guys who look like your average, in the garage, rock band nerds.

    Boom Boom Satellites: Highly talented group that has been around for quite awhile, but due to their unique ambient garbage sound, they have remained very unpopular... this until they've decided to change their sound for a more Electro-Rock fusion style, that has finally gained them attention, though they still creep the odd track in that comes from their original style.
    Lots of Japanese music
    I think WISE is the most underrated and under credited Jhop talent there is. Have you ever heard of him Gikoku?
    I think RIZE has some good songs too but I think they are more mainstream.

    Overrated reg music...
    Soujia boy easy, props for producing everything on his album but it sucks.
    Hard to name overrated rock musicians since rap is so dominant these days.
    A lot of "underground" music from Pitchfork Media. Rooney, Arctic Monkeys etc.

    Underrated
    Silversun Pickups
    Common, for sure

    same here! I was happy that Lazy Eye was on the All star game's commercial on baseball, although there are much better songs by them!

    The name WISE does sound a bit familiar, but no.. I don't remember any songs by him.

    Under-Rated

    Cymbals: A very talented JROCK/JPOP band, that has unfortunately went their separate ways for solo careers. An addictive groovy sound inspired by 70's Disco/Rock & Jazz, which was a fresh change from the way too common bubblegum electro-pop found in JPOP.

    I don't think they're overrated, only because I don't know anyone who actually likes them that isn't a prepubescent female.

    I think if prepubescent girls think you're hot, they're going to tell themselves your music is the best shit ever. Love is blind...and it's also deaf. So their music is DEFINITELY overrated.

    I, being pubescent and all, don't really listen to their music. It's not for me. Except SOS, Lovebug and Burnin' Up ;D
