It has nothing to do with what i or you like. My point is, you know every band out there today? not that it matters, GNR wasn't even the best band of his generation, and i like them, but yeah they are blown out of proportion.
And basically agree on Oasis, there you got another blown of proportion band
When you only have one good album, your really not that good. Everything else from them was pure shit, and has anyone seen GNR live? They are on my top 5 worst live bands list, they sounded terrible not to mentioned started an hour and a half late.
The starting late was part of what made Axl, well Axl. His unpredictability created an aura about him that no one will ever recreate or top. It may be twisted, but I always appreciated Axl's antics.
And at people saying Hendrix. He changed guitar and rock music in general forever.
I don't deny his impact as an innovator of the guitar, but so many say he is the best guitarist ever to play and from a technical perspective he isn't even close. I am heavy into shred guitar and there are so many guys that play circles around Hendrix. Many will say that shred has no feeling, but that is BS. Jason Becker Altitudes is better than anything Hendrix ever done on guitar. So is Paul Gilbert's Technical Difficulties.
I'd say, it depends on what you're looking for. My preference is for the raw, street-walking, scumbag feel on Appetite For Destruction. That album makes me wanna break things.
I get what you are saying, but GNR matured so much as songwriters for the Use You Illusions. They showed much more versatility as musicians. I admire them for not being afraid to add pianos and not create the expected follow up to Appetite.
U2 was great until Bono and The edge began to think more in politics and charity than in the music. Achtung Baby! is an awesome collage of post-punk, pop and some influences from the early industrial scene. Everything after that Blows HARD.
I like the Peppers but they weren't on the level of Jane's Addiction or other band of the L.A. scene, so i never get why they become so popular

This! Tho' I'd add ZOOROPA (if you wan't to look at it as a separate album) I see it as an extension to Achtung Baby. That was the last time they showed some balls (they stepped way out of their comfort zone there) and the last time Brian Eno did anything interesting with them. 2000's saw U2 go back to the 80's style a.k.a. copying themselves + politics & charity bullshit got way out of hand (they always did that, but not to that extent)
