Don’t need to talk about them again since I just did not long ago.
Led Zeppelin: Great
It’s been a while since I listened to them a lot. I think they deserve the praise they get though bands like Deep Purple and Jethro Tull were just as good if not better despite being not as successful.
Queen: Good but overrated
Yeah I probably said this before but there isn’t a lot of focus on the band in their songs, just their singer. I mean, Freddie Mercury was a good singer, but good bands shouldn’t revolve around the singer and just have the rest of the band as extra musicians backing the singer.
I listened to them a lot when I was growing up and they were my favorite band for a while. I will say I’m not a fan of their newer albums Death Magnetic and Hardwired… to Self-Destruct.
Fans: I mean, they just like their music. Common sense dictates that I don’t have an issue as long as they’re not being asses or elitists about it
I don’t care much about fanbases since most of them just like the music, though I have seen some ignorant fans before. I’m not as much an ass or elitist as I was two years ago, though I still don’t like pop music and likely never will.
For the first claim, I do think they warrant that title, but it shouldn’t come at the expense of other bands that are just as great and talented. For the question, I do think they deserve their praise but in the case of Floyd and Queen, they can get hyped up too much which to a non-prog rock fan like me can feel overbearing.
Yeah I think some of them do deserve a lot of the praise they get, but a lot of them get too much praise, especially Pink Floyd and Queen.
What underrated or unpopular bands do you think deserve more praise and should be compared to the four bands we talked about? I feel like if some bands that were just as good if not better than those four had more exposure, they’d be considered some of the great bands of all time.
