Time for some fun. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages, but never quite got around to it. Today seems as good a day as any. I mean, there’s nothing else happening. Sure, you all know that Christy Moore is headlining the Picnic, backed by Sigur Ros… You did know that, didn’t you?

Anyway, you have 20 words or less to let off steam about who you think is the most over-rated act in the world ever. One act only so choose wisely

It could be The Smiths (they only ever had one decent tune and that was “Draize Train”) or REM (a band who’ve successfully whored themselves around on past glories for the last 20 years) or U2 (it would have been far better and funnier if Gavin Friday was the lead singer).

The rules are simple: you can only pick one act and you have 20 words or less to make your case. Multiple entries from the same poster will be deleted. Heckling from the gallery welcome.

And please, make with the funnies. We need the laughs.
