    Hurr durr let's call Pink Floyd and Deep Purple overrated and just finish this autism roll this thread is on. Hell throw Judas Priest in there too. That ones a gigantic auto cringe for me too.

    You know what? Music is overrated. Mastvrbation forever.

    Is it controversial (since apparently we're not talking about metal anymore) to think Radiohead is awesome? Because they are.

    The Bends is an incredible album.

    Limelight and 2112 are Rush best songs.

    Agreed. One of the few acts I still have on my list to catch live.

    Agreed. Thats the one I listen to most. That and Amnesiac.

    OK Computer is good but its a bit over-rated.

    The Bends and OK Computer are both fantastic, though I tend to spend more time on the albums after them, since challenging/weird/avant-garde stuff usually grabs my attention. Not that the two "rock" albums aren't quite experimental and original.

    It's just an amazing run of albums from The Bends through In Rainbows (I like the most recent but it is a little bit of a drop-off). Pretty rare to see a band release six top-notch albums all in a row. Though speaking of Pink Floyd . . .

    Meh, Radiohead. Not my bag, baby, not my bag at all. I liked Northern King's cover of Creep better than the original... And it's fuckin Northern Kings.

    Truth be told that and a handful of songs my friends have played are all I know by Radiohead but they just have this general vibe of 'young adult gay guy' that I can't get past.

    What? Are you, by chance, a closet homo and battle it by bashing guys you secretly wanna bang?

    Radiohead is fucking amazing. The Bends is a classic, and OK Computer deserves every bit of praise it gets. That's the end of this topic. :-D

    Radiohead is one of those bands I never really gave a proper chance. I'll listen to The Bends and report back after I've absorbed it decently.

    I quite like Radiohead and own every release. But, goddman it, are they over-rated as all f*ck. But, then again, ANY band liked by the rock intelligentsia is over-hyped beyond reason.

    Train of Thought is shit. With that one and Six Degrees, Dream Theater hit bottom.

    Rush is great, but 2112 the song is pretty overrated. Pretty disjointed stuff, and far behind what other prog bands were doing earlier.

    Agreed. I remember winning the Bends CD in some competition years ago and thinking meh after a listen or two, but then it really grew on me and I rate it super high now. OK Computer's also great in a different way; much more emotional and less rock. The last song The Tourist still gives me goosebumps. And seeing them live playing these 2 albums - brilliant.

    Yes. Big homo with a big floppy penis made of sunshine.

    I'll give that album a listen but I'm not sure I'm gonna like it. I hope I do.
