This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — Who is the most overrated band of all time?
Steve delivers the opinion of the Council, joined by Djere, Josh, and David:

The Beatles. They were incredibly influential, but this influence FAR outstripped their talent. Their singing voices were poor and their lyrics were either insipid pablum or drug-crazed nonsense.


David concurs, joined by MC-B:

The Beatles-They were a product of their age and rode the wave.


Mike dissents, joined by Chloe:

U2. I just don’t get it. There’s some good stuff, no doubt, but I just don’t get most of it.


Connie dissents:



Erin dissents:

N’Sync. Just face it, people, the boy band was the worst musical catastrophe ever.


Job dissents:

The Ramones. A socially awkward band tethered to a few chords, they have seemingly come to embody teen angst through no effort of their own.


Tom joins this dissenting opinion:

Green Day. From their faux-punk eyelinker to their faux-intellectual lyrics, they are the true “American Idiots.”


Kaitlin played no part in the determination of this issue.


Next time: Who will be the next president of the United States?

    As much as I enjoy the Beatles, it’s extremely hard to argue a dissenting opinion when such a supremely accurate phrase like insipid pablum has been used. One cannot deny that.
