Don't know how you can label someone overrated without listening enough to know if they're good or bad. Hopefully I'm missing something.

Yes you are. I've listened and it's okay but nothing requiring further listens. Everyone I know proclaims this band to be the best thing since sliced bread. They're not. Mystery solved.
