Overrated doesn't mean shit. Just there's an abyss between reputation and reality.

Cannot agree with you in the slightest, and I can think of far more bands that fit your "Possibly the most overrated band ever." Oh yes. Oh yes, indeed!! :P

You're right. That whole Britpop ''''''''''phenomenon'''''''''' was massively overrated. I always thought New Order never lived up to the hype either. In the early 90s I was a big fan but even I felt queasy at shit like https://imgur.com/fyZqmw3 I hereby promise to keep my stupid gob shut till I know what the f**k I'm talking about.

"You're right" - thank you, and I'll take that as a compliment.

In the meantime, here is one of my favourite Beach Boys numbers...................

Yeah, I'm doing a course to be more positive, stop swearing and find the good in everything. It is total and utter f**king shit.
I prefer the Bangles' cover https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04HSg0YZi9E Worst cover ever has to be Russ Abbot with Joy Division's Atmosphere. Totally lost te pathos of the original.

Saturday gigs by Mott the Hoople on Sounds of the Seventies.

Interesting to hear the line "Down to the Roundhouse on a Sunday Afternoon."

I was a bit young for that but can you imagine a venue doing regular Sunday afternoon gigs?
