Get your hate on.

Normally we don't encourage negativity in others, but we almost always enjoy listening to musical opinions, be they in favor of or against any particular artist or album. After all, if we don't talk about this thing that we all obsess over so frequently, then what good is all the obsessing? Recently, The Tripwire pointed us toward an article in The Guardian which featured several musical figures (Wayne Coyne of Flaming Lips and Peter Hook of New Order/Joy Division, to name just a couple) sounding off on classic albums that they really, really don't like.

"Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" the story begins. "It's meant to be a classic album, but all you can hear is a load of boring tripe." Check out the rest of the article:

Sgt Pepper must die!

While we're at it, since this is a pretty interesting poll topic, please feel free to list a "classic" album you think is overrated in the comments below. Thanks!

The White Album...could have been one great album but has too much filler. Often, more is less. Someone should tell that to Ryan Adams too. And maybe Nellie Mckay.

Ditto on Robert Pollard. Dude's a genius, but you simply can't be consistently awesome when you put out an album every two months. Maybe that's not the point, though?

Put me down for Dark Side of the Moon, too. And anything by The Doors.

yeah, any post-barrett floyd is overrated.

Austin's gonna hate me, but Music has the Right to Children is dull and predictable.
