Faith No More:
Overrated - Epic
Underrated - The Real Thing
my entry made my girlfriend laugh a few times, the best I can hope for really.

I'd say Whalberg definately qualifies as really good.

Um were you quoting me for a reason or are you just expanding on the theme of insane sounding music?  Or do you just agree?

Also:

Beatles:
Over:  Hey Jude (again)
Under:  Maxwell's Silver Hammer
It feels like it's the theme song for either Alex DeLarge (from a Clockwork Orange) or the Joker.  Such an upbeat murder song.
