stop dissing U2, people!
listen to their early stuff, not all that post POP stuff:
War are some of my faves - totally different to the commercial stuff that people probably know them for.
If you have listened to their early stuff and don't like it, then
Some of my overratted people:
The Verve (& Richard Ashcroft ) - the rolling stones wrote their best song
Robbie Williams (charismatic yes, but his songs are woeful)
Guns n Roses - like Slash's guitar work, but there was something so 80's and commercial about them when they came out it was hard for me to take them seriously (Sorry G&R fans)
