    So overrated to say that one lol what's next, "Superstar?"
    Eh? It's a good track. Are you going to say it isn't because it's popular or something?

    MJ is horribly overrated.


    His first 4 albums were Nothing short of Legendary.

    And has a collection of classics larger than any musician out there.

    It's not a good track. Are you going to say it is simply because it's not popular or something? Is my point.

    He probably influenced 70% of pop stars that came after him.

    13 Number ones and the highest selling album of all time.

    No they weren't, they were standard pop music, prominent hooks, simple structures, dance percussion and heavy emphasis on the star and not the music. And mostly not even written by him.

    Second point is laughable.

    Nah more than 70% if you think about it. Whether people realise it or not just having music videos with plots and dancing in them is Michael Jackson

    So you don't like Pop. Doesn't mean he didn't influence/inspire music in his time and after.

    What a joke.

    You clearly don't know much about Michael because he wrote most of the songs on Off the wall, Thriller, Bad and Dangerous.

    Most overrated band are The Beatles - They're like the One Direction of the 60s.

    Most underrated would have to be Nirvana.
