Overrated: "You Shook Me" for sure. I'd be satisfied with never hearing it again.

Underrated: "It's a Long Way to the Top if You Want to RNR"

Sabbath -

Overrated - "Iron Man" since they sold out to a freaking care commercial

Underrated - "Supernaut"

Kiss -

Overrated - "RNR All Nite" Again, I'd be happy to never hear this again

Underrated - "Rock Bottom," particularly with the acoustic intro and that kicking rock groove of the song

Overrated: Jailbreak. It's kinda ramblng, innit? I like AC/DC better when they're concise!
Underrated: Little Lover. It's a great little raunchy tune, sung by Bon Scott. Shows they could do something outside of the big riffs, and still kick ass!

Black Sabbath:

Overrated: War Pigs. Great guitar blowout by Iommi, but that stop-start vocal thing can be annoying as many times as it is arresting and sing-along inspiring.

Underrated: Anything off Cross Purposes. It was lost between Dio and Ozzy reunions, but it was a great little album and shows that, good as Iommi is, he's always better with Geezer around. At least check out Evil Eye - a really fiery song, great riffing, great bass, soaring vocals!

I think KISS is universally overrated. Except this one Gene Simmons song, Unholy. That's pretty neat.

This worked out pretty well. I think I will start doing this once a month. Only I will likely do two bands a month from now on instead of three so I can spread it out to last all year.
