Just for reference, what is a band you don't think is overrated that you like?
Also considering the EP was released as a companion to the album, I wouldn't it consider recycling songs. Just like the Summer of George EP and Chasing Hamburg by Polar Bear Club
I have no idea why people don't think this isn't an upper 80s album. Don't hate on Sherwood go post in a Forever The Sickest Kids thread or something.
That's a pretty general question, but my favorite bands include Brand New, The Starting Line, Say Anything, The Fall of Troy, Northstar, Broken Social Scene, Relient K, and Bright Eyes. A person can dislike boring, uninspired pop without being a FTSK, ATL, Mayday-obsessed scene kid. Although I will say that ATL, and maybe even FTSK, make better music than Sherwood.
