I cant think of anything. I can think of lots of over-rated stuff being the moan that I am, but I can't think of anything under-rated. I'll be liking Slipknot in no time at this rate.

Overrated: space

Underrated: time

Flippant again as usual, sorry. This kind of reminds me of the thing in the David Eggers AHWOSG in the mag "What's Hot and What's Not" article:

what's hot -- the sun, flames, lava

what's not -- the moon, ice, lava (solidified)
