Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder: Over-hype in Music

One of the many reasons why music is so great, is that it’s so goddamn subjective – everyone and their dog has an opinion on songs, bands, mangers, tours, festivals etc. It’s crazy. And depending on if they are your favourites in the world, it don’t matter – they’re opinions at the end of the day, it doesn’t stop you from listening to them.

Of course, depending how you feel about them; it can be entirely true or horrifically stupid to even suggest such a thing.

What’s the point in it? 

Jealousy. Jealousy is a dangerous one. Why is that band bigger than my favourite band when they’re music is shite? It’s like my brother is bigger than your brother playground stuff. Ladies, please. You like your music, you like yours. Let’s leave it at that, eh?

I don’t get it, I really don’t. Making top tens on overrated musicians is utterly pointless. Because no matter what you post, people will disagree with you. It’s not like they’re going to say, actually, yeah he’s right, fuck The Beatles! Overrated fucks. I mean, unless you’re really fucking persuadable, you’re not going to listen to an angry teen you’ve just come across on the internet, over your admiration and love for a band that you’ve felt since you could first hear music into your eardrums.

Calling a band overrated does not make them bad, however, it just says that they don’t deserve the hype that they receive. But regardless, one person will say that they’re overrated – another million will say otherwise.

I don’t think McCartney is tossing in his bed questioning his morality of his music career. I think he’s doing just fine. I bet his mansion helps him sleep, that’s for sure. 

Here’s a tip: instead of slagging off bands because you don’t have anything else to do while you wait for your limp dick to raise once again; just don’t listen to them? 

That’s all from me.

 

Best,

Alex
