The 5 Most Overrated Male Musicians, Part One

The "Academy of the Overrated" scene in Woody Allen's Manhattan (1978) is meant to get us to hate Diane Keaton just before Woody Allen changes his mind and falls into bed with her.

Yes, as Mariel Hemingway's character puts it, Keaton and her beau are "creeps" -- but mostly because their "academy" inductees are so gauche, as is their decision to inflict their pretentious pillow talk onto hapless acquaintances on a public sidewalk.

Let's face it:

Some artists really are overrated, especially today when words like "genius" and "classic" (and the current go-to empty-calorie adjective "iconic") have been neutered by lazy, know-nothing writers.

Today, we prick the inflated reputations of some rock and pop stars with XY chromosomes and little else to recommend them.
