I must say I agree with you on NIN, also being overrated. And lets not forget – HOLE. The worst of all!
I found it interesting that you mention Big Black and The Swans. Fucking BIG BLACK! Groundbreaking perfection!
I kind of regret bringing up this topic because we could all go on and on about stuff we think is lame. But there is just SO MUCH of it!! Gotta vent somehow and why not on these silly boards?
