    That's not a quick question and you know it.

    It's probably tougher to say who's overrated than who's underrated. There are literally dozens of great bands who don't get the props they should; some because they've never quite cracked the mainstream & some posterity has forgotten.Bands I would personally recommend include American Music Club, Buffalo Tom, Thin White Rope, The Triffids, The Replacements, The Afghan Whigs, The Wonder Stuff, Shed Seven, The Bluetones, The Boo Radleys & Gene. I could go on...

    Overrated is harder, because for everyone who rates a band there's usually someone who hates them. I think probably the most overrated band ever tho are The Beastie Boys, who seem to be inexplicably lauded by people who should know better.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Hardly. No-one's rated them since a week after Be Here Now came out.

    The Doors are the most overrated band ever, IMO.

    Underrated: any band that is innovative and talented but isn't fortunate enough to be British or American. I'm thinking of The Phoenix Foundation in particular. If they came from either of those countries the NME and Q would be talking them up as being on a par with Radiohead and Wilco.

    My opinion, forcing myself to restrict it to two of each:

    Overrated: U2, Green Day
    Underrated: Gramsci, The Veils
