So I’m going to keep this one quite brief. In my opinion, the most overrated band is…
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they’re bad, because they’re not. They’re quite talented. It’s just that they’re pretentious, and seem to be becoming more so with the passage of time. And to top this off, the Queen influence on their last album and, by the sounds of it, their upcoming album, is about as subtle as The Great Wall Of China, or The Great Pyramids. I love bands that are influenced by the greats of rock and roll, but surely when you’re at the point of having half a dozen albums, you’d be trying to establish your own sound more, not less?
Anyway, as I said, they’re not bad. I have all of their albums so far, and particularly like their first three or four albums, but am losing interest in them as time goes on. And their last album was played so much on the radio here I never want to hear again.
The song I have included is their song “Survival” which is being used as the official song of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
What do you think of Muse? Good, bad, or okay but overrated?
