    point taken and here comes the flak but hearing the Dead on a cd, and going to a Dead concert, is like night and day ... or maybe the flaming lips are a band most could see what i am trying to say ... and if you have to make a hard choice of "which" concert to go to, you maybe should not be going to any and spend your money more wisely ... just a thought .... ron****

    I kinda agree with Courtney. We're not really talking about jam bands here, Ron. We're talking about Gogol Bordello.

    adding Yeah Yeah Yeah's to my list too.

    Ron, I don't even understand the first two. First off, how would Sonic Youth be a band "everybody raves about"? If anything, it's criminal that they have been virtually ignored for 2 decades plus, and if ignored isn;t the right word, overlooked at the very least. They've consistently made excellent records with very little fanfare (at least relative to their peers).

    And Jarvis Cocker??? Is this a repudiation of Pulp or just Jarvis solo? Again, I'm not sure how Jarvis solo has been "raved about" by a large number of people, but to the best of my knowledge, there's only been one solo Jarvis album, correct? Kind of a limited sample size. And as for Bowie, I think you said it perfectly. That said, I can't fault anyone for his/her opinion. This list just baffled me.

    I think this is a fair statement. There are bands that are better live but if you do not like any of their recorded material at all there is probably little chance that seeing them live is going to change that fact.

    oh i agree 100 percent on sonic youth but they do have a sound that i think some people just would not like or get .... i dont know enough about jarvis to voice any opinion ....and amy, that is why i used the Flips as an example too, and they are not a jam band, not in my mind anyway ... just a thought cuz i dont know a whole lot about anything canx**

    Arcade Fire, don't like their recorded stuff all that much but their live show is fantabulous.

    A few of my overrated?

    QOTSA
    The Mountain Goats
    Tegan and Sara
    Hot Hot Heat
    Wolf Parade

    And the list can go on, but really, I could be here for a very long time if I did that.....

    i dont agree with this at all. there are plenty of artists whos albums i'm not that into, but i would definitely see them live because they take their albums to a new level live and it sounds a million times better. a good example for me is daft punk, or most electronic acts, for that matter. on album they are so repetitive, but live they mix it up so much that they keep it fresh and exciting. gogol is another one. while i dont mind his albums, i dont really love them either. but their songs have so much more energy live. same with my morning jacket. i'm sure there's others i'm forgetting.

    I saw QOTSA open for NIN and was disappointed in their show. So many people raved about how awesome they are live, but I didn't really get the feel for that seeing them on stage. They just don't do it for me live either.

    Tegan and Sara...the only reason to see them is if you like watching awkward fighting between siblings on stage. I don't like their kitchy one chord progression, repetative trite.

    another artist I think is completely overrated is Beck.....

    I do really like some of his stuff, but after years of hearing how "groundbreaking" or genre defying he is...its kind of made me dislike him....

    if you have a broad range of musical interests....he is not really that interesting

    I agree with all of these. I can respect Morrisey and The Smiths but I don't get it and his fans are nuts people go about as crazy for him/them like they're the fucking Beatles.

    A lot of Sublime's fans and popularity have tainted what goodness they have (which was 80 percent on 40 oz.), but it's almost undeniable that the acoustic version of Pool Shark is a great tune. Especially when listened to in retrospect of his OD, it's just incredibly poignant.

    I guess I interpreted this thread to be about bands that are raved about by people that you generally consider to have good taste or whose opinions you otherwise value.

    Edit: Otherwise the thread would easily devolve into an uninteresting list of bad music like My Chemical Romance or Britney Spears or what have you. Given their record sales, they surely must have a lot of fans who rave about them, but I don't find it necessary to explicitly state my disapproval of their music because it's a given.

    Cannot stand Metallica or Slipknot
    I went through that 7th grade stage where every song i listened to was either Metallica or Slipknot but it has been at least 10 years since i last listend to a Metallica and unfortunately i was at a house party and my friend put Left Behind on just to piss me off, there was drunk belligerance involved and i will never have to here such music again.
