    Radiohead has been my favorite band for over a decade now, but I can understand how people could think they're overrated, because of the obsessiveness and near religious fervor some of us display when discussing Radiohead

    that being said, i think they're absolutely worthy of most of the praise they garner

    Some people just find unbridled genius inspiring. it's not for everyone, and the world could always use more Fall Out Boy fans, so don't beat yourself up you don't get it.

    arcade fire only have three albums ... well, two albums and an ep. radiohead have seven, not counting their live album or hits compilation. i don't think it's a topic worth getting into until arcade fire have a more extensive discography to critique.

    honestly, I could give a shit if more people like Radiohead or not, it just keeps making it increasingly difficult to get good tickets to their shows...I actually wish less people liked them so they could play smaller places like the ones I saw them in years ago

    He's right. It's pretty bad. There are some good ones in there, but since you were asked who your favorite bands are and that's what you come up with... not only did you mention Fall Out Boy, but it's just stunningly bad.

    also he said what are bands i like not necessarily my favorites




    also would it help if i like bands that didnt have a major label behind them?
    if only 23 people had heard of them instead 23 million
    bands that focus more on lyrics than music?
