The Bee Gees are generally seen as a disco act today, which is a shame because their work is a lot more diverse and interesting than a lot of people may realize.
Just a couple of examples:

[In My Own Time](https://youtu.be/xLzfjPkNaM8)
Bush. They had some really good songs, and after their first couple albums were trying some interesting things. The Science of Things is a pretty cool album.
I don't know how much hate they get, but Smash Mouth is definitely seen as a meme band. They have some awesome songs though.
Slipknot. Often thrown in the same box as many other cringy NU metal bands of that time, but Slipknot really did capture that pissed of misfit attitude. Also Corey's voice and Jordison's drumming is undeniably great.
Kanye, dude's an amazing musician and at least a decent person, who cares if he has a big mouth?
Nickelback and Creed. I mean if they suck so hard why are (were in Creeds case) their shows and albums such huge successes? I prefer Nickelbacks older stuff but its all pretty damn good straight ahead rock. They had 5/9 albums go at least 1x platinum and 1 album go diamond. Creeds album Full Circle was meh, but their first 3 were outstanding. They went 6x, 11x, and 6x platinum respectively.
So for all the hate they take/took, either theres some fans seriously deep inside the closet or they were actually good bands.
Limp bizkit. Durst may be a tool but the rest of the members are highly talented.
