    It goes without saying that the quality of mainstream music declines every year. This year, though, we've witnessed the seemingly oxymoronic emergence of independent music and culture within the mainstream arena.
    We've also observed the death of the beloved Amy Winehouse, at the age of 27, well before her time. She will be sorely missed.

    As the year draws to a close, the media has begun compiling lists. Best of lists, Worst of lists, Top 10 lists, and more, for TV, music, movies, books, gadgets, and even dildos.
    Speaking of dildos, it's about time we here at EDF2 shit out our first annual MOA list, that is, Most Overrated Artists List of 2011. This year's nominees come from a wide range of genres and handicaps, including hip-hop, pop, indie, rock, and electronic.

    In this thread, we will vote and discuss particular artists, over-hyped bands, and pained singers/songwriters, all until January 1st, 2011.

    If you'd like to suggest any other categories, leave your suggestion down below, and I suppose I'll create a spin-off thread for it (if it's worthy of one).


    Good luck, and may the best-- err, worst artist win-- err, lose!

    I voted Drake. The only reason he's popular is because he came from our zionist master's Jew-balls. And also he's Canadian. I fucking hate Canadians.

    I hate Drake because of how seriously he takes himself. He acts as if he matters to the world of music. He really doesn't, at all, much less in the real world. He'll fade out eventually.

    Britney Spears tried to make a come back, and I have to say, it was mildly successful.

    Jennifer Lopez got a bit of buzz, what with her FIAT commercial, but she didn't really make a "comeback", per se. At this point, I think she just wants the attention she used to have.
    And yes, you are old. You wear Adults' Pull-ups, and eat at Coco's.

    Who voted for Bon Iver? @Meepsheep?

    My thoughts on them: They're good, and they're getting better with every release. For Emma was great, but it lacked substance. "Self-titled" fixed what was broken about the former, and for that I am glad.

    Lady Gaga was so 2010.

    EDIT: I'm pretty sure the title's gonna go to Skrillex.

    Well, that didn't really work.

    Obviously, none of you know enough about music to be able to discuss it properly. Fucking disgrace.

    The rise of skrillex is odd, i think i can understand why kids might like brostep, will the electronic music thing stick over there?

    Winehouse is a knob, she was crap when alive worse dead.

    For me, I never truly understood the fascination with James Blake.

    haven't had a chance to digest oneohtrix yet.

    Jamie XX , also very dull.

    Fucking Skrillex is a piece of shit artist and a fucking disgrace to music. I hope he makes it to the radio though, so some of the kiddies might actually look into electronic music that doesn't blow dick a la chillwave or post-dubstep. Fuck Pitchfork, I love Childish Gambino.
    Most overrated band is m83 though. Midnight City best song of 2011, Pitchfork? ahhahahahahaha
