They've got at least five good songs more than I'm willing to admit. Most of their stuff is the epitome of mediocrity, though
These guys to me are in a weird space where they aren't really that well known but they have a lot of critical acclaim and a big cult fanbase and I constantly see them called amazing but they're actually perfect right where they are. MOR as fuck.
This is shorthand for "People should like this more" assigned to give your opinion more credibility, but yes they've undoubtedly had a successful as fuck career. Grohl is a living meme round these parts, so maybe they're "Underrated" for /mu/ standards
I don't think the first 2 records were the epitome of mediocrity at all, what do you mean by mediocre?
Are you fucking kidding me? Grohl is a brilliant drummer but this band is U2 level mediocre. It always blew my mind how someone could be passionate and drop hundreds of dollars to see a band this bland.
oh look its the underrated bands thread
where nostalgia glasses-donning plebs come to circlejerk about shitty bands, proclaiming, "they were actually good!"
no they weren't. you just have bad taste.
how can you be underrated while having a great career
isn't mainstream financial and/or critical success an example of being perfectly rated by a decent enough population of music listeners?
How are any of these bands underrated? they're literally bands the mainstream wank over. Oh and Foo Fighters is cringe music btw
