Post your controversial music opinions here.

Mine....

Lady Gaga's success is mostly down to her wacky, shameless and nutjob persona rather than her 'music'.

Girls Aloud- 'Out Of Control' is one of the worst pop records ever made, and even Cheryl Cole's mediocre debut beats it. It's only just better than Katy Perry's new excrement.

1997-2003 Blur is better than 1991-1997 Blur.

Ian Brown was a liabilty for The Stone Roses.

Oasis- 'Be Here Now' is one of the greatest albums ever, so charged with self belief, catchyness and arrogance that the production problems don't seem to bother my at all.

The Arctic Monkeys don't have a single good song.

I'd rather listen to Coldplay than Radiohead.

Oh absolutely. Nothing but a glorified McFly.

And Queen are the most overrated band ever. Just gimmicky and stupid.

The vast majority of western popular music is banal 4/4 pentatonic dullness and we are essentially rhythmically retarded.


^I'd think that if I was in a bad mood.

I can just imagine McFly or Boyzone doing Tomorrow Never Knows or Revolution #9 on stage.

The Arctic Monkeys are indie by numbers, nothing original and are a half assed Joy Division rip off

A band should never be promoted by "they write their own songs / play their own instruments" as this is basic level music 101 and in most cases should be a given.

Simon Cowell knows who the winner of X Factor is right now, and the rest is nothing but a money making machine. Jedward were a plant trying to get the growing "anti x-factor" crowd to tune in.

REM's Out Of Time is 100 times as better than Automatic for the People, which is over-rated as hell. (not a bad album though)

I can't tell the difference between any of the boy and girl bands out there today, or most pop singers.

Guns N' Roses Chinese Democracy album is incredible. Most bad reviews were just because people couldn't get past the idea of Axl being the only remaining original member.

Don't know if this is that controversial but in my opinion the Beatles are pretty overrated, I much prefer John Lennons solo stuff. I respect everything they've done and appreciate that they have influenced alot of bands but they're still overrated IMO

If it had been released by an unknown artist or band, it would have got amazing reviews.

I tend to go against the grain with most musical icons & superstars. i.e. Madonna/Kylie/GaGa/Britney are all absolutely dire, just iconically famous. Michael Jackson, minus the Quincy Trilogy (which was still just ok) was sh*t. Beyonce/Aguilera/Carey are just vocal show-offs, all adept at stripping the soul and meaning from a song and replacing them with sterile 'notes' which are clinically precise. Then people like Leona et al are just extremely poor versions of the aforementioned; imitating the imitators. And lastly, Eminem is a squeeky voiced nerd who gets right on my tits.

Not too controversial, then!

The Saturdays sound like s**t in its purest form.

I've said that for a while.

I think it was always going to let people down after 14 years of hype.

Britney Spears does not have a "special something".
She is an average looking girl with an average voice who benefited from the right age at the right time.

Most artists that are generally seen as "iconic" are simply overated. This includes: Beatles, Michael Jackson, Queen and Elvis Presley

Most bands that the British public think are the best around, simply aren't and are just saying that because their taste doesn't span past (for example) NME and just want to look like cool "indie" rockers. This includes: Oasis, Kasabian, Muse, Kings Of Leon and since 500 days of Summer came out The Smiths.

**** you bandwaggon jumpers

Michael Jackon wasn't the king of pop, definitely not in my opinion.
